Here we are, halfway through the school year, and this is where things in the food department tend to grind to a crawl- if not an all out halt. I don't know about you and yours, but in my house weekday breakfasts and lunches are getting to be an unpleasant chore. I ask the kids … Continue reading So. Sick. of. Cereal!- Soft Breakfast Oat Bars
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!
I haven't published since November. That is just astonishing to me. On one hand, it really doesn't feel like it's been that long. But on the other hand, some pretty huge things have happened since then and it feels like an eternity. My husband was furloughed from the railroad (temporarily laid off and waiting to … Continue reading Easing Back Into Things-Vanilla Fruit Salad
This week's recipe is rather a show stopper. Especially when you tell people what it is. I have to smile at people's reactions when I tell them I've made a FIVE POUND apple pie. There's always the stop-to-make-sure-they-heard-that-right face and then the "Wow!" as they let it sink in. I have fun "wowing" people with … Continue reading A Certain Wow Factor- Five Pound Apple 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
My goodness gracious; it's cold! That's true for just about everywhere in America right now, but it goes double for the Northern Plains where I'm at. Everywhere I go there's talk of wishing for summer and lamenting how crazy cold it is. I can understand why they feel that way; not everyone dislikes summer like … Continue reading Winter Getting You Down? I Have the Answer!- Lemonies
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 almost didn't do this post. I almost threw the Christmas pudding away and said "forget it" to Christmas dinner. The two months running up to Christmas were awful. (Things still aren't great but no one wants to read my belly aching- not even me.) The last thing I felt like doing was making a … Continue reading An Experiment: Victorian Christmas Pudding Part III
I think one of my absolute favorite desserts is pie. I love cake- but only with a generous amount of frosting on top, thank you very much. And I adore New York style cheesecake, especially with some caramel drizzled over it. (I'll eventually get around to posting my cheesecake recipe). And ice cream is always … Continue reading Legitimately Having Pie for Breakfast- Apple Pie Waffles
Something rather upsetting happened last night: fruit flies became VERY interested in our Christmas Pudding 😦 We took it down from it's happy hanging place and put it in the fridge. We still have high hopes for enjoying it after our Christmas feast and I will still follow up with that post to let you … Continue reading An Experiment: Victorian Christmas Pudding Part II 1/2
