French Salad Dressing

French Salad Dressing has been my favorite salad dressing for most of my life. I became hooked on Western Salad Dressing and that’s all I ever ate. If there wasn’t any Western in the house, I didn’t eat salad. My husband was experimenting with different ingredients and I swear this is identical to the Western Dressing I love so much. I have […]

Pork Roast & Sauerkraut

Pork Roast & Sauerkraut brings back memories of my childhood. This is the same recipe my Mom made for us more than fifty years ago. The aroma of this dish baking throughout the house is wonderful. Now I know that not everyone likes sauerkraut, however, if you have not tried rinsing it thoroughly before cooking it, you should. Rinsing it eliminates the strong sour […]

Crab or Lobster Bisque

Crab Bisque was my fourth and last soup to create this week. This recipe can be made with either crab or lobster. The key to a good Crab or Lobster Bisque is using fresh Crab or Lobster. If you must use canned crab, rinse it first. I have had Lobster Bisque many times in restaurants but never Crab Bisque. I […]

Pot Stickers

Pot Stickers are one appetizer I love to order when we eat out. I don’t know if it is the wonton, filling or the sauce that I love the most. It really is just the combination of all three together. Although I eat them as an appetizer when I eat out, at home they are a meal. Pair these with […]

Cream of Broccoli Soup

This Cream of Broccoli Soup can be made from start to finish in about an hour. After cooking the veggies, I removed about 3/4 cup of the veggies and used my immersion blender on the rest of the pot to give the soup a nice thick and tasty cream base. Then I returned the veggies to the soup base. This does not make […]

Dehydrated Peeps

Did you enjoy eating Lucky Charms as a kid? Do you enjoy eating Peeps? How about marshmallows toasted over a fire?

I know I like to munch on small dehydrated […]

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 […]

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 […]
