Taco Soup

Yes, I changed the background…again! That last one, after Christmas, was just too busy for me. Hopefully this one will last for a bit. I so appreciate everyone’s kind words and thoughts for my quick recovery. I am definitely feeling better – well, actually. Thank you so much. I’ve actually had more energy than I… Read More Taco Soup

New Year’s Eve

Yes, it is hard to believe the last day of the year has arrived. Have you heard a few people say, “Wow, where did the year go?” or “My, this year just flew by….” I think I’ve heard a few hundred (or maybe a few dozen, at least) express that thought. I’ve actually thought it… Read More New Year’s Eve

Hot Curried Fruit

Last week, I asked for new brunch ideas and got several good suggestions…my thanks to everyone. Since some have asked, I ended up with mostly “tried and true” classics…mainly because my family got wind that I was going to get creative and they were less than enthusiastic – who knew they really even cared! My… Read More Hot Curried Fruit

Casserole Anyone??

My goal for this weekend is to finalize my brunch menu for Christmas morning. I have some tried and true favorites but was almost thinking I would like to be a little creative – or, at least, new – this year. So, I was pulling out the cookbooks in search of a yummy breakfast casserole.… Read More Casserole Anyone??

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Just a quick update…the baking today was a lot of fun and the cookies were so yummy (believe it or not, I only ate one!) My picture really does not do them justice… I mentioned that I found them on Heather’s blog but they were from an older (older) post, so I thought I would… Read More Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Libby’s Pumpkin Roll

I know I’ve said it before…but one last pumpkin recipe. I have to include this one because the sweetest little 7-year old I know assured me, it is the best!! Next week, we will have a Praise and Prayer service on Tuesday before Thanksgiving…I think I just may have found the perfect dessert for the… Read More Libby’s Pumpkin Roll

Potato Soup, Chili-Cheeseburger Mac-n-Cheese, and Beef ‘n Macaroni Bake

With fall starting to settle in, there are so many yummy recipes to try and to share. The best of comfort foods to be sure….warm, filling and full of wonderful flavors. Two new ones I found this week are Mrs. H’s baked apples and Kelli’s dark chocolate chip pumpkin squares (my absolute two favorite flavors!!)… Read More Potato Soup, Chili-Cheeseburger Mac-n-Cheese, and Beef ‘n Macaroni Bake

Quick Turkey Chili

Finally, some serious fall weather has set in…and just in time for some Quick Turkey Chili. I make my menus about two weeks in advance and this was planned for this past Monday – turns out, the weather was perfect for some chili and grilled cheese. Not only is this chili made with turkey (good… Read More Quick Turkey Chili

Barbecue Cups

Something easy that we had for dinner tonight…this is a “stand-by” recipe that I have been using since my children were little. At our house, just about anything would pass the “kid test” if it was coated in barbecue sauce, but these cups do seem to please even the picky eaters.
