My daughter Brandi, shared a new breadstick recipe with me the other day. She got the recipe from the friend of a friend. Brandi even took a picture for me, so that I could see how light and fluffy they are. The ingredient that makes these breadsticks unique, is Cottage cheese. Who knew! In fact, […]

Has anyone missed me? I’ve been enjoying a lot of sweetness lately. A sweet little granddaughter! Just look at these perfect little piggies, and I bet you can guess the rest of this story!

Tonight for dessert, I made this delicious Cobbler. I’ve mentioned that my better half doesn’t care for anything that is too sweet. I prefer a Crisp, and he prefers this not so sweet Cobbler, with a biscuit type top. Don’t get me wrong, this dessert is certainly sweet, but not like your oatmeal and brown […]

 Last night, I decided to make beef kabobs. I took a BEFORE picture while grilling, but somehow didn’t get a chance to take the AFTER picture, before the husband devoured them. These are so good! We don’t do anything fancy with a combo of veggies and beef, because the veggies always seem to cook faster […]
