7 Layer Dip

This is as tasty as it can be healthy. If you use fat-free or low-fat ingredients (optional) this can be very healthy to eat. A few years back I took a client to our Metro Parks for a class on healthy eating. This is what the instructor made but I changed a few of the ingredients to our taste. Although I have this listed as an appetizer, […]

My husband gets credit for this recipe! He had the idea and I said “Go for it.” I usually am not crazy about Mexican food and he just loves it. I had to work last night so he made this for his dinner. I love that he named it Mexican Pot Pie, so appropriate. I also love that he is […]

I have grown my own asparagus for over 20 years. Usually I eat it cooked different ways or I make Asparagus Soup with it. Last fall I went to Amish Country and found Pickled Asparagus and knew I had to make it with my home grown Asparagus! Start by holding a stalk in the middle and at the root end. […]

Our Wisteria

Today I am not blogging about food. We live in the country and nobody ever gets to see our 50 foot long, 8 foot high and 6 foot wide arbor so I thought I would use my blog to share it with all of you. My husband built the arbor for me back in 1997 and I worked endlessly pruning and […]

Rhubarb

I have eaten Rhubarb since I was a little girl. Our elderly gentleman neighbor had a patch of Rhubarb growing along the fence line next to our backyard. I used to reach through the fence and snatch a piece every year. I’m not sure I really enjoyed the tartness of the edible stalk but the elderly neighbor never used it and as a […]

Marinated Mushrooms

I don’t know what I like better, cooked mushrooms or Marinated Mushrooms. I used to always buy Marinated Mushrooms from the store and they were so expensive. Now I make my own and they taste just like the ones I used to buy. I wait until they go on sale and buy a few containers just for this recipe. They […]

Turkey BLT Sriracha Wrap

I can’t believe that until about a year ago, I went my entire life not trying Sriracha Sauce. Sriracha Sauce is a type of hot sauce or chili sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. I had never been crazy about wraps in the past. Once I added this delicious sauce it changed the […]

Slow Cooker Pork Chops

It only takes three ingredients to make these moist, fork tender Slow Cooker Pork Chops that are ready in 6-8 hours. I buy a pork loin and then I cut it into 1/2″ thick boneless pork chops. They were ready to eat in 6 hours. Empty the Lipton Onion Soup pouch into the slow cooker, pour in one can of chicken broth, stir with a fork and […]

This is my copycat recipe of Red Lobsters appetizer, Lobster Pizza. I have lunch once a month with two wonderful ladies that I have been friends with since the late 70’s. This is one of the things I order for my lunch with them. My Lobster Pizza tastes as delicious as Red Lobsters only it’s better because it actually has much more nice […]

I added mushrooms, bacon, tomatoes, my home grown dried basil, salt, pepper, croutons and Italian Dressing. I don’t have pets, so I just rinsed it good and it was ready to eat. […]

Shrimp Nachos Supreme

I’m not a big fan of Mexican food, however, let me make it with seafood instead of beans and it’s a hit! This was so much fun to make. All the colors and the different tastes were amazing. I didn’t make this as a dip, I made it to eat with a fork. I know, I know that’s not the right way but that’s […]

Chili Mac

I never liked Hamburger Helper but then I tried their Chili Mac and found myself doctoring it up so much that I actually liked it. So I decided I might as well make my own. This is just as easy and quick as making store boxed Hamburger Helper and it’s definitely a whole lot cheaper to make. You can add ground […]
