Guacamole

Happy Cinco de Mayo, Everyone! This year Cinco de Mayo will be celebrated a little differently for most since we can’t go out to a Mexican Restaurant to enjoy our favorite Cinco de Mayo meals and appetizers. I wanted to share with you one of my guacamole recipes that you can make and enjoy in…

Huevos Rancheros

While I had the tv on for background noise on Saturday morning, I was listening to one of the chefs on a cooking show talk about making Huevos Rancheros. I’ve never actually had Huevos Rancheros before, but I know my husband, Dennis, loves it. I thought of it as a breakfast dish and to me…

Chocolate Chunk, Walnut and Cinnamon Cookies

Yesterday morning when we woke up, Dennis said to me “I’m really looking forward to having some of the cookies you’re going to make me today.” I replied with “I’m making you cookies today?” But, actually, I was really planning on making Dennis cookies, only I hadn’t told him. I wanted to try and make…

Italian Meatballs

Yum! That’s the word I have to start this blog post. I usually don’t bake my meatballs in the oven. More often than not, I form them and let them cook and simmer in a red sauce for awhile on the stovetop. I also think if I cook them in the oven, they will get…

Grapefruit and Lime Pork Tenderloin

I love making and having pork tenderloin for a weeknight dinner. It’s quick, easy and healthy. Kylie’s boyfriend, Jacob, brought us grapefruits and lemons from his paren’t fruit trees in their yard. I used one of the lemons as a garnish for my soup the other night and knew immediately I wanted to use the…

Turkey Soup

  Coming up with what to make for Easter dinner this year was easy for me … even though at this time it’s definitely not easy to find what we may be looking for at our grocery stores right now. Luckily I had a 25 pound turkey in my freezer from the holidays that didn’t…

Tomato Tart

As I cleaned and reorganized our refrigerator on Saturday, I noticed I had a Pillsbury Pizza Dough to use. I didn’t really feel like making a pizza, per se, so decided I’d make a tomato tart that we could use as a side to our leftover chili as well as a main course for lunch…

Beef Chili

Yesterday being Sunday and also Packer Sunday, Dennis and I thought chili would be the perfect playoff game dinner. When chatting with my mom on the phone on Saturday, she mentioned adding a dash of cinnamon to the chili. Well, I did, and everyone loved it. After sautéing an onion and several stalks of celery,…

Turkey Meatballs

Are you looking for a hearty appetizer to add to your New Year’s Eve party or even your upcoming Superbowl Party? I made an appetizer twice this Holiday Season and it was a hit both times. I made it once for my annual Christmas Party and then yesterday to bring to a friend’s house. These…
