Good grief, it's been almost a year. A year!! SO MUCH has happened in that year, and I wasn't sure if I would ever get to come back. I've wanted to, but it just hasn't been in the cards until now. I wasn't sure if anyone would even care at this point if I came back. But … Continue reading I’m Alive and Kicking- Really!
Depending upon where you happen to find yourself in the world, the cold weather is upon us- or will be soon. Now is the time to get your arsenal ready- to have your comfort food ducks in a row. And if you have someone in your household that works outside for a living- even in … Continue reading A Cold Weather Ace in the Hole- Crumble Topped Chicken and Ham Pie
So after being informed by my BFF that the print feature I added awhile back actually prints the entire blog post instead of only the recipe like I wanted it to, I have (with a little help from a more experienced blogger) figured out how to make only the recipe in each post printable. Yay! … Continue reading Easy Printing… For Real This Time
The last few days here in Northern Wisconsin have been just heavenly; highs in the low to mid 70's, a cool breeze all day, and chilly nights to cool the house off to be ready for the next day (saving a ton on the AC bill). This is what I envisioned summers to be up … Continue reading Versatility is a Virtue- Lemon Garlic Chicken Breasts
Hot damn; I'm bloggin' again! I can't tell you how many times in the last 6 months I've said to myself "I really want to blog... but I've got nothing." You may ask "Why nothing?" To which I answer "because of the kitchen from hell with which I was making do." See; when we moved … Continue reading Back At It Again- From MY OWN Kitchen!!
I've had some requests for a "print recipe" feature, so I looked around and found one of those! You can now find a new button on each post. It's labeled "print and PDF" and it can be found at the very bottom of each post along with the sharing buttons. You're welcome and thanks for … Continue reading I’ve Added a New Feature!
I haven't been blogging much lately. Too much life getting in the way. Too many things that just haven't gone right. Too many things that have just been... complicated. I wish sometimes that things could just be easy. Easy to get done. Easy to go through. Easy to figure out. But that's not how life … Continue reading I Just Want It To Be Easy!!- Chicken Crescent Casserole
I've never been one to keep my opinions on the costs of store bought foods to myself. I fully believe that with a few basic ingredients, the know-how, and a little time, you can make those things at home- usually with better results. There are few departments in the store that illustrate that better than … Continue reading You Must Think I’m Out of My Mind!- “Rotisserie” Chicken
I'm originally from Indiana, where it's crazy humid. I grew up in the mountains of Northern Colorado, where the winters are long, crazy cold & windy. So I figured I knew what I was getting into when we moved to South Dakota. Turns out I didn't quite have it all figured out. The combination of … Continue reading Outsmart the Winter Wind- Creamy Chicken and Bacon Soup
It's that time of year again; the weather is getting cooler (well... it is here, anyway), school is back in session, and pretty soon it will be time to close the windows up for cold weather. All of that adds up to one thing: outbreaks of cold & flu bugs. While it's true that people … Continue reading You’ll Probably End Up Sick- Chicken Garlic Soup
