**I created my Tavern Style Crock Pot Beef Roast with Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are my own. #CampbellsSkilledSaucers Yesterday was the first real snow we got here in Orem. And it didn’t just sprinkle a little snow. It really snowed. And it really snowed some more. We got […]
Amazingly, I have decided I like sweet potatoes. They just need to be prepared the way I like; not sweet, not even a tiny bit sweet.
What is delicata squash? I had my first introduction to it just this fall. I understand it is easy to grow, maybe it is the next new butternut.
You might call this a 2 step recipe because that is all the steps I give you in the directions, but I can’t ignore all the directions in the ingredients preparation with dicing and tearing. I was very pleased with this salsa and felt like it was simple enough I will definitely be preparing it […]
Craig and I eat a lot of salads; a lot of salads – like daily either for lunch or dinner. We feast upon salads for a few reasons: health, weight, and our CSA box. First it was for weight, I personally have lots 40 pounds over the last 3 years. Then we determined the salads […]
I am quite sure cauliflower was not on my list of vegetables that I liked when I was growing up; I am quite sure that list was very, very short. Over the years as an adult I have come to appreciate and even enjoy cauliflower. First, it was raw served with a vegetable dip, then […]
One of my good friends moved the beginning of July. Becky is an amazing woman; she is married to a Marine, raising 5 children plus an foreign exchange daughter (she is the one who put Marta into my life), runs miles, and runs everywhere to accomplish much. She and her family are moving to Austin, […]
A couple of weeks ago, I joined a CSA (community supported agriculture) group. In other words I became a member of a community farm, committing to purchasing a box of fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables and fruits weekly. It has been a interesting experience – receiving different vegetables that I have to look on the […]
When I first saw the idea for an alfredo lasagna, I knew that it was something I must try. I mean, who doesn’t love lasagna? And with alfredo sauce? Sounds amazing! I came across this delicious looking Veggies Alfredo Lasagna from Pinch of Yum and decided it would be the one I would try. The […]
One of the first dishes I remember making on my own was during my freshman year in college, baked carrots.
I used to make chicken fajitas quite a bit when Anthony and Aimee were growing up. Then I got distracted or made them one day and decided I didn’t really like them any more, I know, crazy huh!?! But last night Craig was commenting how many mini peppers we had still in the fridge and […]
Are you sick and tired of me posting dessert recipes yet? I truly am sorry if you are. But I love making desserts, you see I love sweets, more than anything. But sometimes I like cooking other things too. Actually, I always like cooking other things too. I really just wish I had enough time/money […]
Have you ever eaten a parsnip before? In my 52 years I don’t think I had, but I have been seeing them all over pinterest and so I broke down and picked up 2. Parsnips look like white carrots for the most part, perhaps taste like that too. I prepared my parsnips for this recipe […]
Pasta al Forno just means baked pasta (so any pasta, sauce, meat, vegetable combo baked would qualify). Craig style means my very dear husband Craig created this recipe and prepared it for our dinner tonight. He wants to share that any pasta noodle like gemelli, penne, or macaroni would work. You can also use your […]
If you follow us on facebook you know that last weekend I sold some yummy pops at a boutique at Heritage Schools, where Nate and I work. So as I was trying to decide what kind of cake pops to make, was going to make cheesecake pops… so we bought a huge think of like […]
