Strawberry Rhubarb Freezer Jam Recipe

Rhubarb. The simple word that can strike fear in many peoples hearts because of the over abundance that one rhubarb plant can produce.  If you have more than one rhubarb plant you had better have some ideas on what your going to do with it.  Lots of ideas on what your going to do with it actually because rhubarb is the weed that keeps on giving.  I was ecstatic when my mom sent me home with a whole cooler of rhubarb because I have been forbidden from growing "that weed" as my … [Read more...]

Spring Veggie Ragu Recipe ~ Even the Kids Will Love It

Straight from the Farmers Market ~ Spring Veggie Ragu If I'm not growing it, I love to buy my fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets.  This past Saturday was no exception to that rule.  Walking through the farmers market, I found some amazing vegetables that begged to come home with me and be dinner.  I gleefully obliged and picked up some wonderful things to make a Spring Veggie Ragu to top some Buitoni Spicy Beef & Sausage Ravioli.  One of my favorite vendors had fresh baby … [Read more...]

Lighten Up Mexican Night With Cilantro Lime Rice

Mexican night is a common occurrence in our house, actually is comes more often than I want to admit because it's fast, cheap and I know the family will have no complaints.  Feeding my picky meat and potatoes only bunch can get a little exhausting sometimes, and that is when I turn to Mexican Night.  The convenience of being able to customize each person's plate without a lot of fuss saves a lot of "Mom I hate tomatoes", "I don't want no white stuff on mine mom", "What is this?". Mexican … [Read more...]

Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits – Bite Size

Health wise can it get any worse than Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits? But can taste wise does it get any better than Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits? I started off with the thought of making homemade donuts but I was being a little lazy and remembered my mom frying biscuits over a campfire. I figured I could improve on that flavor and still end up with something doughy and donut like. I must say these Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits were a good thought and so fun because they were bite size! The family had a … [Read more...]

24 Awesome Crock Pot Recipes

Summer will be here before you know it and for me that means my desire for cooking goes down.  It is hot outside and then it's hot in my house and the last thing I really want is to heat the house up with the oven or stand over a boiling pot.

Stuff Yourself Silly Orange Chicken

The hubby is out of town this week which makes it the perfect time to cook up all the dishes that he won't eat. You know the ones that don't contain beef and potatoes.  Chinese cuisine is one of my favorites and I rarely get it because Cory isn't a fan.  The smell of stir-fry's in my house are welcomed by funny faces and "what the heck are you cooking?".  It is just easier not to make it rather then listen to my "funny" husband and his side remarks. So while he is out of town I am cooking up … [Read more...]

Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Tenderloin Recipe Have you ever had a spiral ham? I mean a good spiral ham; one that's smothered with brown sugar, cloves and a hint of cinnamon. In my eyes that's the only way to enjoy a ham - but why should that sugary/spicy goodness end with ham? Why not pass some of that yummy over to more pork products, like a rich brown sugar glazed pork tenderloin! I had a tenderloin sitting out to thaw and I couldn't decide what to do with it last night, so back in the … [Read more...]
