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!
Ridiculously enough, the Super Target in Duluth (Minnesota, about 40 minutes North of us) has already cleared out their summer seasonal section and is in the process of building their back to school displays and stock. Last week's ad already had back to college/school deals, even. It's July for crying out loud! As cringe inducing … Continue reading It’s that Time of Year Again- Homemade Uncrustables
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
Ok, seriously; I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this sauce! Remember when I told you that my husband loves my sausage gravy so much he wants to eat it in a bowl like soup? Well that's me with this sauce. And I can do that because this sauce is actually … Continue reading Awesome Beyond Words- Marinara Sauce
We are preparing to delve into the world of homeschooling this year. We've felt the need to homeschool for years but were never in a position to be able to until now. So we won't have the hustle and bustle of trying to get out the door in time to meet the bus this year. … Continue reading Sometimes Grab and Go is a Blessing- Chocolate Chip Muffins
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
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'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
