Sometimes my recipes are developed because I have ingredients in my fridge that I want to use before they go bad. That is how this recipe came about. I had bananas ripen, blueberries waiting, and almond milk partially used. Previous I had made banana blueberry bread so why not make banana blueberry ice cream, I […]
Tomato season means to me a great BLT sandwich. This recipe takes the BLT to a higher step and it is worth the reach. I am already planning on having it again and again and again. Fried Green Tomatoes Bacon Lettuce Sandwich 2 – 3 slices fried green tomatoes 2 slices cooked bacon 3 or […]
I love pancakes. Who doesn’t love pancakes? Right? They are great for breakfast and they are great when we have breakfast for dinner. I grew up and am used to always using a pancake mix like bisquick or krusteaz. And I’ll probably use those some times still. But when I want to take just a […]
Do you have tomatoes growing in your garden? One of the sweetest treats is a fresh cherry tomato just picked and popped into your mouth. The sweet juices squirting and filling your taste buds with absolute deliciousness. I can eat cherry tomatoes like candy, sometimes it is just hard to stop. I love a fresh […]
One of the things I have discovered about living in California is our fruit trees produce and fruit ripens about 1 month ahead of fruit in Utah and Idaho. I still get surprised when it is the middle to end of July and my peaches and pears are ready to be preserved. I always remember […]
I love Arby’s. I usually get the same thing whenever we go to Arby’s, a regular beef and cheddar sandwich. And of course you can’t forget the curly fries. No matter how much I try to resist, if we are at Arby’s, I just can’t say no to the curly fries. I have wanted to […]
If you are from Idaho, you spell potatoe with an e, if you are from anywhere else you drop the e. So I guess you can tell where I originate from. I never liked sweet potatoes growing up, I found them quite nasty tasting. My elementary school cafeteria would serve this plop of something that […]
In my church we have activities to unite the members and promote friendship. Sometimes those activities are on Sunday right after church; these activities have received various names – “Break the Fast”, “Linger Longer” and “Munch and Lunch”. Almost every church activity involves food, particularly pot luck.
I am not going to lie, this recipe is very time consuming. This recipe ended up taking me about 2 and a half days because I was at work during the days, and slept at night, so I could only do 1 or 2 layers a day. If you are at home full time this will only […]
Nate’s brother got married a week ago. The wedding was in southern/central utah so we had a little bit to drive to get there. But it was a beautiful ceremony. The bride and groom both looked absolutely amazing. After the wedding, lots of pictures and driving back to Orem the family wanted to go to […]
I have learned to love pulled pork since I worked at Legends Grille on BYU campus. One of my favorites was my altered Cubano sandwich – because I didn’t really like pickles or mustard I would make it with the pulled pork, ham, swiss cheese and top it all with barbeque sauce. We got 50% […]
One of the first dishes I remember making on my own was during my freshman year in college, baked carrots.
Memorial Day, it is more than just a time for BBQs with family or friends. Almost every Memorial Day, while I was growing up our family visited and decorated grave sites with home grown flowers; like peonies, lilacs, and roses.
When I think of Easter, I think of Easter candy. It’s sad for me to say that my mind doesn’t first go to the true importance of Easter. I am very grateful that our Savior, Jesus Christ was resurrected, and that we can celebrate it on this day. But, I do love my Easter candy. Why […]
Last year for my birthday celebrate, Nate made one of the yummiest cakes I have ever eaten. He got the recipe for a chocolate peanut butter cake from smitten kitchen. The chocolate cake was so moist and the peanut butter frosting was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Topped with chocolate ganache. Perfection. […]
