Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs

Easter is just around the corner, and it seems one of the most popular side dishes for Easter dinner is deviled eggs. Now it may seem odd to serve something with the word devil in the name on the day we celebrate the risen Jesus, but the term comes from the addition of spices, such [...]

I’ve eaten these sliders before, but never made them myself until this weekend. My daughter was attending the end of season soccer party, and I needed a good finger food for the girls.

The weather is beginning to get cooler, and when thinking about food, that means one thing to me. Soup! This past week I pulled out my go-to chicken tortilla soup recipe. Of course, like most any recipe I tend to make, I changed a couple things based on what I had on hand, and it [...]

Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts. It doesn’t have to be cold outside for me to enjoy a big, steaming bowl of it. And it’s amazingly wonderful to wake up to it ready to eat in the slow cooker. It may seem like a lot of liquid in this recipe for the amount of [...]

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate Chip Muffins

My daughter has had several sleepovers lately, and I’m always trying to decide what to feed the girls in the morning. My go to recipe has become chocolate chip muffins.

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini is one of my favorite summer vegetables. It is abundant in many home gardens this time of year. It tastes great raw, cut into strips and dipped in ranch dressing.

Roasted Carrots

Roasted Carrots

Oven roasting has become my favorite way to cook vegetables, especially carrots. The char the carrots get from roasting brings out the natural sweetness in them, making them incredibly delicious. You can keep the seasonings simple, like my recipe with salt and pepper, or you can change it up to fit the other dishes you [...]

Crybabies

Crybabies

I have absolutely no idea where the name for this cookie comes from – maybe because you’ll cry like a baby when they’re all gone, but you want more. Whatever the reason, they were one of my favorite cookies growing up. The molasses gives a rich flavor and soft texture to the cookie, and the [...]
