My husband left for work at 4:10 this morning . . . crazy guy.  He works hard.  He tried to be quiet and not disruptive, but it didn’t work.  Once he’s gone . . . I’m wide awake.  I emptied the dishwasher at about 5:00 a.m.  As I was putting things away, I spotted this: […]

In the realm of Scalloped Potatoes, this recipe is the winner . . . at least in my book. It’s a Family Favorite.  We make these for almost every holiday dinner, and in between. When I was younger, we would devour these very quickly at the dinner table.  If there were any left-overs, we would […]

It’s snowing and Cold here today, some of our schools even closed! That’s something that doesn’t happen very often . . . around these parts. We can handle huge amounts of the fluffy white stuff – – Spring has simply not sprung in Idaho!  I’ve got to happy myself up!  Last night I made one of […]

Here I go again, posting this recipe for the second time.  As you have probably figured out by now, I deleted my baking blog, and recovered everything except for the last two posts that I had made. This is really, honestly my favorite casserole type chicken dish.  I probably could eat it every night!  There […]

Years ago . . . many moons ago, as a new Bride, I searched the world over for the “perfect waffle recipe.”  I found it!  When I’m looking for great recipes, I always grab those home grown ward cookbooks.  The recipes are usually tried and trusted and rarely let you down.  I’ve never looked for […]

Turkey is so easy and delicious to prepare in a slow Cooker. I usually prepare it this way for Thanksgiving Day Dinner and several other times during the year. The Turkey is never dry, and you end up with fabulous stock for the perfect gravy.   If your ovens are over loaded during the holidays […]

If you know me, then you already know that I Love pizza! I like it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I like it hot and I like it cold….in the pot nine days old.  Well, maybe not nine days old….but you get the picture.  Last week I tried Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Fried Steak, from her new cookbook and […]

As I promised, I made Chili to go with our scones and homemade bread.  In this house, you may have figured already, that we don’t get too carried away with onions and tons of spices.  Well….you see, we like the flavor, but not the chunk.  Does that make sense?  This Chili recipe is for one […]

The other day, I received a funny email from someone who subscribes to this crazy blog. This person noted that she loves my baking blog, but had a few questions. The first question was this: “Do you ever eat anything healthy?” The next question: “Your picture doesn’t make you look heavy…are you?” The third question: […]

Many of you will think I’m NUTS for posting this! It’s not really even a recipe, but it still remains a family favorite. You don’t even have to go camping to enjoy foil dinners. We enjoy them several times a year. These foil dinners are quick, easy and always taste great. We are pretty plain […]

This is what I made for our dinner last night.  It’s really good and super easy to make on a busy night.  You could also use chicken breasts if you like.  This is a great way to tenderize both chicken and pork.  You only need about 30 minutes from start to finish, and leftovers are […]
