Classic Macaroni Salad

Ah, the Classic Macaroni Salad. My late Grandma Barb used to make one similar to this and I have to say I was inundated with thoughts of her while I was making it yesterday. It’s funny how certain foods (and songs!) remind you of people. My Gram loved to cook and Macaroni Salad was one […]

How to Cook Perfect Pasta

Looking for the Weekly Menu Plan? Click HERE to see it. I have received a hoard of emails lately (ok, really only 3) regarding pasta and how to cook it just right. I figured it was high time I put a post together detailing a few simple pasta cooking techniques that have worked well for me. […]

Weekly Menu Plan: May 18-24

Another weeks worth of recipes for you today, including a fresh and fabulous Strawberry Spinach Salad,  a little something for your grill and THREE crock pot recipes (it’s that time of year when life is busy and cooking time is limited, yes? …come to think of, I don’t know a time of year when life isn’t […]

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars and 17 Chocolate Chip Recipes for National Chocolate Chip Day

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are a favorite of mine. The combination of the hearty oats mixed with sweet milk chocolate leaves me a bit weak in the knees, I have to admit.  I have been using my moms classic recipe for years (see it here). I love it to the moon and back, not just because the […]

Margarita Pizza

“What’s for dinner, Mom?” said a teenager who lives in this house. “Margarita Pizza.” said I. “Mom, we don’t drink.” was the reply. I had to chuckle and reassured the teenager that I hadn’t added any kind of alcoholic beverage to his dinner. He was relieved. But then I got to wondering why this amazingly […]

Weekly Menu Plan: May 10-17

The Weekend Report: Crying Through the Night

I found this 17 year old picture of myself and my oldest boy Mark while looking through a scrap book earlier this week. Boy, those were the days. I was in love with this kid after about 5 seconds of him being born and I have been smitten ever since. When he was a small […]

White Chocolate Silk Pie with Raspberries and Milano Cookie Crust

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a “sneak peek” picture of this glorious pie earlier in the week. I couldn’t help but toss a picture out into cyberspace as soon as possible. Raspberries, ladies and gentlemen. They are easy on the eyes, wouldn’t you say. Such a beautiful fruit, truly. This […]

Penne Pasta with Tomatoes and Spinach (Renewed)

A couple of weeks ago I taught a cooking class on Meal Planning and Easy Pasta Recipes to a group of Relief Society Sisters (an LDS womans group). Whenever I get asked to teach a class of this nature, I almost always bring Penne Pasta with Tomatoes and Spinach for the cooking demonstration. It’s so […]

A New Moen Faucet and a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

A few years ago a dream of ours came true, and we were able to buy a cabin in Bear Lake, Idaho. To say we were thrilled would be a gross understatement. We’ve loved having this little slice of heaven and have used it as frequently as possible. It’s been a great way to build relationships with […]
