Butternut Squash Delight

If you haven’t caught on by now, I’ve got a lot of butternut squash around my house at the moment. I even found more in the trunk of my car that I hadn’t unloaded yet! Good thing it hasn’t been so hot that it got roasted or moldy! For this side dish I did the […]

Simple Feta Chicken

This recipe came about when my husband went grocery shopping and couldn’t find Parmesan cheese.  You may like to know, this situation is how many (and when I say many of, I mean most of) my recipes come from. Either we are out of most of our food so I have to make something up […]

Baked BBQ Baby Back Pork Ribs

Well, this is a winner…I don’t know what else to say. Everyone in my family loved it and even though I was full, I wanted to eat more. Good thing they were already gone. I somehow managed to get delicious, fall off the bone, melt in your mouth ribs from my very own kitchen. I’m […]

Crockpot Pineapple Ham

Ham, pineapple, and a simple sweet and sour sauce in a crockpot is all you need to make this simple dish! Ham was on sale, so my husband bought a gigantic ham for next to nothing. We froze some, used some on sandwhiches, ate it with mashed potatoes and veggies…and there was still some left! […]

Apple Crisp

Since it’s apple season around here, I thought this recipe was really appropriate for my post this week. When we bought our house a couple years ago, there were four over grown apple trees in the front yard. I was convinced that they all needed to be cut down. Well, this is the first year that we’ve had […]

No Bake Shepherds Pie

Shepherds pie is one of those things that I have heard of pretty much as long as I can remember, didn’t eat it a lot growing up, and have only made once before I think. I decided to make my own version of it to contribute to the plethora of dishes I have on here!

Garden Burger

Yellow squash, onion, zucchini, basil, and garlic. All in a burger! As you can see, this is not a veggie burger. I call it a Garden Burger because it is jam packed with things you get from your garden this time of year. You wouldn’t believe it, but there’s onion, yellow squash, zucchini, basil, and […]

Zucchini and Quinoa Toss

Just when I thought it was impossible to think of anything else to do with zucchini, quinoa came knocking on my door. I have used quinoa before with no problems (and lots of enjoyment) so combining the two as the season of zucchini approaches just seemed like a natural fit! This is a great dish […]
