Buttery Sourdough Crackers

Perhaps it’s just my kids, but I can’t keep snacks in the house. It is seriously crazy, but I bring little snacks in here and by the time I go to dole them out, they’re gone already. If I bought them from the store, I’d go broke in a month. If I made my own, […] Read more…

Slowly warm them in your slow cooker and use it for baking your favorite desserts! We’ve  hashed out the pie vs. cake question here before. (You know, the really big matters in life.)

I have a conundrum. You see, I’m just about out of chicken stock. Really, I  need to roast this chicken for dinner tonight and then use the bones to make some. (Don’t roasted chicken bones make the most beautifully dark & rick stock?!) But what I really want to do with the chicken is to […] Read more…

Pork Chops with Peppercorns, Wine Sauce, and Bay Leaves

I love herbs. They are every bit as important as the vegetables we’re growing in our garden. If not more so. For they not only add nutrients to our food, building the flavor of the vegetables we’ve labored so hard to cultivate, but they also double as our medicine. Really, it’s a field of study […] Read more…

It doesn’t surprise me that DIY health care is increasing in popularity. We know that the folks in control of the health care system in our country don’t necessarily have our best interest at heart. Much to their chagrin, there is an increasing availability of information for those looking to take back control of their own […] Read more…

The thought that anyone wouldn’t be a “cake person” never crossed my mind until I met Bill. Who doesn’t love cake and look forward finding any opportunity to partake in a piece?! I mean, isn’t that the whole reason why I’m shooting for a dozen kids? Sure, things got messed up a bit what with […] Read more…

Spanish-Rice-7.jpg

Growing up, Spanish Rice was a dish I’ve best described as Unstuffed Peppers. Since I could never stuff peppers and actually get the rice to cook, Unstuffed Peppers (Spanish Rice) matched the flavors without all the fuss. I like it best piled up high on a slice of fresh (baked the same day) buttered bread. […] Read more…

Spiced Apple Jelly is by far and away my favorite jelly. Sure, nothing says early summer like a good strawberry jam and believe me, I do appreciate strawberry jam, but if you twist my arm and make me choose, I’m going to pick the apple jelly.
