time for crustless taco pie!

I tried a new recipe this week. It’s called Crustless Taco Pie. I found it on the blog Simply So Healthy. Her pictures are prettier than mine. We didn’t add sour cream or other toppings. It was able to stand alone, though it would be very good with all those extras on top. I changed […]

mini muffins

DD likes poppy seed muffins, and a friend gave me some fresh poppy seeds the other day, so this afternoon I made a batch of mini muffins, using this recipe at Seasaltwithfood. The zest and juice of a fresh lemon make them extra delicious. An easy recipe. Mix the dry ingredients together. Mix the wet […]

anadama bread

One of my favorite Christmas gifts was the book The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. The first recipe I tried was Anadama Bread. Made with cornmeal, it makes wonderful toast. The bread requires an overnight soaking of the cornmeal which I’ve never done for a bread recipe before. It also asks for 4 oz. light molasses. All […]

chicken and dumpling soup

Chicken soup is one of those recipes you can fudge to your heart’s content. Use what you have, substitute, leave this out, add that. Yesterday I wanted to make chicken and dumpling soup. Instead of following the recipe I found online, I put together my own combo. Near as I can remember, the following is […]


Tacoritos…delicious. The entire family gave them a big thumbs up. 🙂 Not hard to make, at all. If your family and/or friends like tacos, burritos, Tex-Mex, etc., they will enjoy this. And I must say, as good as they were, they were even better the next day. Next time I make them, I will consider […]

chicken tortellini soup

Our daughter has been home from school for two days with a cold, coughing, fever, etc. I had planned to make Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad for supper tonight, but thought a chicken soup would be better for a sick girl. After looking at a few chicken and tortellini recipes, I came up with my own […]

hearty ham casserole

I perused several food blogs, looking for a recipe to use the extra ham I had in the fridge. I came across this one and decided to give it a try. I wasn’t sure about the corn it called for, but it was delicious! We all put it on the “have it again!” list. Hearty […]

bacon-provolone chicken sandwich

What can I say? This is delicious! I made the buns with my regular bread recipe. The original sandwich recipe called for seasoning the chicken with poultry seasoning, which I did not do. It just didn’t sound good to me. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper. Bacon-Provolone Chicken Sandwich Click the link for […]
