Pineapple Ginger Pork Kabobs

23 Apr

With the weather finally nice enough to be outside, at our house, it is time to fire up the grill! Besides the usual hamburgers, steaks, and hot dogs, kebabs are an affordable dinner option that works well with just about any kind of meat. Put any food on a stick and it will immediately be [...]

Baked Italian Sandwich

19 Apr

The amount of meals that we now eat somewhere other than our own house has at least doubled in the last month or so. Not only are we eating lunch like most people who work outside of the home (at our desk or otherwise) but the beautiful weather has made for a few very good [...]

Spicy Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

29 Mar

Nothing says “Easter” like an egg. I can’t seem to remember a single Easter without one. I can vividly remember sitting at my great-grandmother’s red kitchen table, intently focused on dying the perfect egg. We had looked at pictures of Faberge eggs, and I was determined to recreate all of the detail of those intricate [...]

Crispy Oven Roasted Potatoes

20 Mar

Exciting things are going on in our life right now. My family business is expanding and growing and we are doing our best to keep up with the pace of this quickly unfolding opportunity. We are being pulled in all directions and while the momentum is exhausting, the speed at which progress is moving is [...]

Cabbage Strudel

2 Mar

From March 2014 Dickson Herald/Hickman County Times There is a bag of dirt on my kitchen floor and little cups of seedlings in my window. My garden has been generously turned over and tilled by a neighbor. I have drawn out my plans for this year’s planting, hoping that this season will be better than [...]

Twice Baked Colcannon Potatoes

2 Mar

Ireland is totally on my bucket list. I will make it there one day before I die. I don’t care if I have to spend my children’s inheritance to get there, it will happen. Unfortunately, I’m not there yet. I’m not even close, but a girl can dream and she can cook for St. Patty’s [...]

Curried Cauliflower

28 Feb

Cauliflower is really experiencing a renascence right now. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting some kind of recipe somewhere for cauliflower “rice”, cauliflower pizza crust, or cauliflower “mashed potatoes”. This humble vegetable that was my least favorite thing to ever cross my plate as a child has become the darling of the Gluten-free/ [...]

Chicken Stew

18 Feb

  Hello, Winter…you are late. We have been waiting for you since December. We would have been very appreciative of your wintery precipitation during the Christmas holiday but this February delivery of ice and snow is unwelcome. Take it back, and next time, deliver it in a timely fashion. The icemaggedon that has hit our [...]

Chocolate Mousse with Whiskey Cream

31 Jan

Minor holidays that once were merely a reason for my husband and I to go out to a nice dinner or buy each other a sweet card are now filled with dread for me. Holidays like Valentine’s Day are now a gaping black hole where I just throw my hard earned money so that my [...]

The Top 5 Kitchen DIY’s

26 Jan

I have been blogging for…7 years!? Holy cow, 7 years. And in 7 years I believe that I have managed to add a little value to the internet (not much, but a little bit). I noticed recently that some of my most useful posts have been swept under the rug so to speak. Many were published [...]

Make Your Own Frozen Pizza

23 Jan

I am ashamed to say that in the last year or so, our family has adopted a nasty habit: cheap frozen pizza. It’s a guilty pleasure sort of thing really. I mean, there is nothing more unhealthy than a $2 Tony’s pepperoni pizza, but when you get home late with two hungry kids and no [...]

Homemade Baking Mix

21 Jan

Convenience and good taste are rarely found together. Like tuna salad in a gas station, a party dress at the Dollar Store, or jewelry at Walgreens, store-bought baking mixes are very high on the list of things I will never buy. When I was a kid, all of our pancakes and waffles were made from [...]

Baked BBQ Potato Wedges

18 Jan

Nothing travels faster than fresh gossip in a small town. Even in today’s modern society with social media where you can stay more up-to-date on the world news through Twitter than the actual news channels, small town news still travels by word of mouth carried by the breeze from one person to another. This particular [...]

Teriyaki Turkey Meatball Stir-fry

13 Jan

I’m sure that I have mentioned this before, but I LOVE Asian food. Not only do I love how fast and fresh most Asian food can be, but I also love all of the sauces and condiments that go along with it. The Asian pantry is teeming with sauces, pastes, oils and vinegars that can [...]

Stuffed Flatbreads

7 Jan

A few months ago we were swimming in little puppies. A gift from a stray who wandered up to the house, the seven adorable spotted noses running around our carport pretty much consumed our life. Every morning we were greeted by tiny little canine barks and growls and little puppy paws chasing the laces of [...]
