Ranch Corn Dip

Monday, January 28th, 2013

First of all, let me say thank you to all of you for the kind “welcome back”. It’s nice to finally be back to the blogging world again and even nicer to know that I was missed while I was gone. Moving right along, I¬†thought that y’all would enjoy a good dip recipe to share [...]

Gooey Fudgy Peanut Buttery Brownies

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Never has a combination of ingredients been more of a hit in my house than chocolate and peanut butter. It’s simply divine! And by divine I mean, if you leave me alone with a pan of something with the ever-famous combination, I will (with no shame, [...]

Pizza Quesadillas

Friday, August 24th, 2012

You know what I hate? When I ask my family what they want for lunch or dinner and they reply, “What do we have?” We don’t keep that many convience foods around (ie frozen meals, etc.) because I’d much rather take 5 minutes to make my own panini or pasta than throw a frozen meal [...]

Chicken Burrito

Monday, August 13th, 2012

I know, I know, it’s been far too long. I won’t go into detail, but we’ve been dealing with some tough issues around our house (and no, we are NOT having marital problems…just making that clear before the rumor gets started). Though I didn’t anticipate it happening, the blog suffered because of this and for [...]

Caramel Apple Dip

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

There are some people out there that always mention this blog and how much they use it every time they see me. A sweet friend of mine, Leslie, is one of those people. She always makes it a point to tell me how useful she finds the site and how many times she uses my [...]

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Monday, March 12th, 2012

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a recipe for a peanut butter/chocolate treat so it’s well overdue. I never tire of such delicious sweet treats in my house. If there’s peanut butter in it, I’m almost guaranteed to love it! These yummy brownies were no exception. I threw these together one afternoon on [...]

Lizz’s Double Chocolate Cookies

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Geez louise does life ever get so nuts when my hubby is away! He’s gone for 6 weeks at a time to his job in Alaska now and I’m here to tell ya…taking care of a house and three kids all by yourself is quite the job. I barely have time to do anything these [...]

Quick Roast Beef Wraps

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

One night about a month ago, I wasn’t feeling my best and quite frankly, just didn’t feel like cooking supper. Yes, even I have these nights. I love to cook more than anyone else I know but there are times when I just can’t stand the thought of fixing another dinner at home. So I [...]

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Everyone on the planet seems to be on a health kick lately, no doubt because of new year’s resolutions. I don’t make any myself, because really…what’s the point? None of us ever stick to them anyway, do we? It appears as though, while browsing through my blog recipes, my family eats fattening, sugary food non [...]

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Growing up, my family always went to my uncle’s house for breakfast on Christmas morning. It was one of my favorite times of the season, a time when we could go show off all of our new toys from Santa while enjoying time spent with family and diving into a delicious omelet made just to [...]
