Beer Bread

So do you think you can’t make bread? Then you have to try this recipe. This recipe does not have to be kneaded and does not need to rise. Depending on the type of beer you use determines how the bread tastes and looks. It is so fun to experiment with the different types of beer. My husband and I really […]

Beef Jerky

Beef Jerky is a healthy, high protein snack. This is my favorite Beef Jerky recipe. I keep wanting to try new recipes, after all, I did receive a wonderful book of Beef Jerky recipes from my son two Christmases ago! But for some reason I just keep making this one. My dear friend messaged me yesterday and asked me how to […]

Shrimp Enchiladas

Shrimp Enchiladas are one of my favorite seafood meals and they were made by my hubby! Loaded with shrimp, creamy cream cheese filling and other added flavors…OMG! You could even change it up and exchange the shrimp for crab meat. I topped them off with our own home grown thyme for garnish. I was able to transplant my sage and thyme from the garden […]

Pizza Casserole

This dish tastes as good as it looks. I make it with Rotini Pasta. Then I add hamburger, pizza sauce, cream of mushroom soup and all the pizza fixings you want like bacon, onion, pepperoni, green pepper, mushroom etc. It is also a meal that can be made up ahead of time so that all you have to do is put it in the […]

Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet Cake is one of my favorite chocolate cakes. It makes for a great dessert for a family, a potluck or just about any type of get together. I have been making this recipe for about 35 years now. I’m not sure where the recipe came from but probably my mom. When I was growing up it was a sin […]

Chicken Lazone

Another fun day with the grandchildren. My granddaughter turns 6 in a few days. Today she asked me to pull out her loose tooth. It was so small I couldn’t get a good grip on it. I wrapped dental floss around the base of the tooth and pulled it right out onto her lap with no pain! Although she was very happy to get the […]

Taco Salad

Here is my version of Taco Salad. I used ground beef in this picture, however, if you want to make it even healthier trade off the ground beef with ground chicken or ground turkey. With the taco flavoring in the meat, you can’t even tell it’s not ground beef. If you wish, you can break up taco shells and sprinkle them […]

Easy Beet Pickled Eggs

I have always wanted to try Beet Pickled Eggs. I love pickles and I love beets so I knew I would love Beet Pickled Eggs. I made them using the juice of Pickled Beets. Terry does not like beets and would not try these so I only made a few. I use to can my own Pickled Beets and ate them […]

Pure Vanilla Extract

I use a lot of Pure Vanilla Extract in baking. How many of you knew it was made with alcohol? In my opinion, there is not a Pure Vanilla Extract that tastes or smells as good as homemade. You won’t want to purchase Imitation Vanilla again once you see how SIMPLE it is to make Pure Vanilla Extract. There are only two ingredients, 70 […]

Orange Chicken Over Rice

  Terry, my wonderful husband, wanted to surprise me with a dish he has never made before. It was very easy and quick to make. Since he does the grocery shopping (lucky me) he bought frozen chicken pieces that were already cooked and breaded along with frozen stir fry veggies. He found the bottle of Orange Sauce in the Asian food aisle. Sounds pretty easy doesn’t […]

Pickled Beef Tongue

When I was a kid, my parents always encouraged me to try many different types of food. I think the only food I didn’t like was onion and green peppers. When my mom made stuffed green peppers, she always made me a separate pot of the stuffing with the green pepper left out. I still do not like green pepper today. Dad was […]

Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

Fixing Chicken & Dumplings in the slow cooker is another easy and delicious meal. Dumplings can be made homemade or you can buy a can of home-style biscuits from the store and cut each biscuit into four pieces. This way is very easy and they turn out like  dumplings, not biscuits. There are many different types of dumplings so pick your favorite as they […]

Tortilla Chips

How many times do you have left over tortillas and just throw them out? I decided to turn mine into seasoned Tortilla Chips and were they yummy! Not to mention we had them with Chi-Chi’s Medium Salsa, our favorite. They were so good warm, right out of the oven, and the perfect snack. You can add any spices you would […]

Crab Rangoon

I can never turn down Crab Rangoon! I love how this recipe turned out. I bake a big batch of them and freeze them uncooked.   They are ready to eat in 30 minutes from the freezer to our plates. When I’m ready to fix dinner, I put them on a cooking tray to thaw for about 15-20 minutes and bake them in the […]

Packet Potatoes

I had a night off from cooking! My husband made me this fabulous steak dinner. He fixed the steak and potatoes on the grill. It was in the 60’s in Northern Ohio in February, what a beautiful day to cook on the grill! My husband is a wonderful cook. Cooking on the grill is his specialty. Years ago, when my […]
