DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR PUMPKIN SEEDS!!!!! Once you try this simple recipe you will never toss pumpkin seeds again. My mom always made these when I was a kid. Remember ...
I have a high standard for chocolate chip cookies. My BFF Brooke’s mom makes the best cookies. To this day when I visit her mom I request her cookies. They are the only chocolate chip cookies I like to eat warm and that I will eat until I feel sick…and then eat more. I don’t [...]
I love dipping sauces that go beyond ketchup. I made up this concoction during lunch a few weeks ago because I was eating chicken nuggets along with the kids and wanted to feel like I was eating adult food. This did the trick!
I love sweet potatoes! I love them simply baked served with butter, I loved them mashed, I love them sliced, and in any other form you can think of. My husband, on the other hand, doesn’t. He doesn’t mind them, but usually doesn’t go out of his way to eat them. This recipe somehow did it [...]
This simple recipe derived from a recipe I got from my sister, who got it from my mom, who got it from a friend. The idea is a simple, fast American/Mexican chicken dish. I’ve tried it before and we enjoyed it, but it sometimes seemed like it needed something more to round it all out. [...]

There are probably literally hundreds of soups that use chicken broth as the base and you end up with something far, far from your basic chicken noodle.

When my sister first talked to me about making my own homemade chicken broth I was totally intimidated. I thought it’d be a long, drawn out process that was very time intensive. Well, It turns out that all I really needed was a small chicken, water, a crock pot and a few vegetables!
Soup season is upon us and I was yet again, feeling like I’d have to sacrifice eating some good soups because I would be the only one eating it. My family likes soup, but more as a side dish. My husband rarely goes for the leftovers and I always make big pots of soup! I [...]
I made up this pie recipe about a year ago and never quite got to posting it! It’s a shame really, because now you’ve gone a whole year without access to this wonderfully delicious recipe! Pie season is coming upon us now and this will be a great addition to your recipe stash.
Tis the season for zucchini and squash! I love this time of year when people give you all of their extra squash and zucchini because they always grow too much! You would think they’d learn, but I’m glad they don’t! You can pretty much do anything you want with squash and zucchini. Especially yellow squash. I’m [...]
