A Bountiful Thanksgiving~2014

Thanksgiving has always had a special place in my heart. It’s the time of year when everyone gives a little extra effort to spend time together. Work schedules, activities and events become less of a priority and we’re reminded that our families are the real reason for being thankful. Sometimes […]

Busy Day Sausage Veggie Soup

In my house, Tuesdays are our really busy day.  My daughter has dance and is absolutely famished when she gets home so I’m always looking for ideas to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible.  The crockpot makes an appearance regularly on Tuesdays.  I cut up the veggies […]

Undemanding Chowder

  We have enough demands in life, don’t you think?  Everyone that I know is running high on “to do” and short on time (and maybe patience).  Sometimes we have to start making demands of the things in our life.  Today, I demanded that dinner be quick, easy and comforting. […]

Potato Fennel Cheese Soup

Lemony Marinated Pork Tenderloin

I’m still working my way through lemons. Everything has to happen in the morning around here, because the afternoon is reserved for family and school. Which means – hello, I NEED a plan. Bobby Flay to the rescue. Well, kinda. It’s really rare that I follow anyone’s recipe exactly. Even […]

Potato, Bacon and Parmesan Frittata

I have many recipes in my arsenal that I go to when my basket contents are nearing their end or when I need to clean out my fridge for the upcoming basket.  Frittata is one of those recipes – it is versatile enough to be able to toss many different […]
