Mint Chocolate Brownies

Some of you may remember that I posted a killer brownie recipe several months ago. I called them Linda’s Fabulous Brownies, because my cousin Linda gave me the recipe and because they are fabulous. I try to lay it all out there for you in a simple way, alright? I like simple. Simple is something […]

Simple French Bread Pizza

Many of you know that I have a house full of children. A combination of teenagers, one tweener and two little kindergarten boys are what we are dealing with here on a regular basis. Needless to say there is never a dull moment. Sometimes I find my self wondering how a girl like me got […]

Boston Cream Cupcakes

Boston Cream Cupcakes, ladies and gentlemen. Moist yellow cake is filled with a rich, creamy pudding and topped with a glossy, decadent layer of chocolate ganache. I could eat one every day for the rest of my life and die a happy, content woman. That is, if all of my children turn out to be loving, law-abiding citizens who come […]

Crock Pot Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup has become one of my families all time favorite soups. I seem to make it at least once a month. You might be surprised to hear it, but several my kids have confessed to preferring it over the treasured Chicken Noodle that has been a staple around here for ages. This is true. Move over […]

March Menu Plan 2013

Orange Sesame Chicken, Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole, Chinese Cabbage Salad, Broccoli Cheese Soup, Turkey Pesto Provolone Melt Sandwiches Can you believe it is March, for crying out loud!!!! Woo Hoo, I like the sound of March. Even if it is “In Like A Lion” or whatever they used to teach us when we were tiny children. […]

Crock Pot Berry Cobbler

I am always on the look out for more crock pot recipes. There is just something so comforting about the old crock cooking up something fabulous while I hang around in my pajamas reading a book and eating chocolate cheesecake. Ok, that never happens. Hanging around in my pjs reading a book, that is. Unless you […]

Almond Crunch Granola

I have had a Granola Making Need for quite some time now. For many reasons, really but the most important of all is the fact that I discovered a big 5 pound bucket of rolled oats living in my basement. I’m sure when I purchased it I had plans for making all kinds of yummy things. Like these […]

Technology…a blessing and a sore wonder

Hey there gang. It appears that last week my little old blog was having a fair amount of technical difficulties. Many of you were unable to view the new recipes I posted and could only see the Hummus recipe I posted 10 days ago. My apologies…I have been working a few things out around here and have installed some software that is made […]

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you sometimes feel as though your life is just one stack of dirty dishes after another. I know some of you love to cook while others of you just HAVE to cook because you are the mother or father of small people who happen to get hungry daily. Like, three times a daily. 🙂  Weather […]

Simple Oven Baked Crumb Potatoes

These potatoes are so simple to put together! Russet potatoes are diced, coated with a bit of melted butter and then tossed with Italian Bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Once baked the potatoes have a nice, crispy golden outside with a soft center.  Did I mention they were simple. Pretty sure I covered that one. […]
