Bring It On Brisket Feat

This post was originally published as part of my main dish recipe contributions to My Favorite Finds ——————————– So I’m a Food Network and Cooking Channel addict, right?!?  I don’t like every show or every chef.  I have to admit Guy Fieri is not one of my faves.  I don’t dis-like him, but I don’t really […]

Kielbasa & Apple Rigatoni

Kielbasa & Apple Rigatoni FEAT

I love Kielbasa for breakfast, but we rarely eat it for dinner.  But all that is about to change with my Kielbasa & Apple Rigatoni.  Cheesy, creamy, with bright pops of apple to balance the rich sausage.  It’s happiness in a bowl. Now stay with me on this one.  Here’s the logic.  Pork + apples […]

Shrimp Etouffée

My laptop charger died.  And of course I didn’t know it was done for until I went to charge my almost out of battery laptop.  Figures.  At least I have a tablet to work from.  However, the lack of a physical keyboard is trying.  Oh well.  A new charger has been ordered and hopefully it […]

Last night I made a dinner that I am now famous for.  This year for my mom’s birthday, I made a Marinated Pork Roast with pan gravy, roasted carrots and new potatoes, and a Cookie and Cream Cake.  {Don’t worry, I’ll post the cake later.  Yum!}  My grandpa and Aunt Cindy were in town taking […]

Thai Pizza with Peanut Butter Sauce

Thai Chcken Pizza 7

Yay for GYCO post day!   I love seeing all the fabulous creations everyone has put together.   When Jen picked peanut butter for this month’s secret ingredient, I immediately knew I wanted to make this pizza.  I have been thinking about it forever.  It’s so colorful and I think the flavor combination would be […]

Bacon-Wrapped Scallops in Pomegranate Sauce

August 2007 was the longest Mike and I have ever been away from each other.  He went to Scotland for the World Highland Games for two weeks, and I went to Walla Walla, Washington for my cousin’s wedding.  I was weird to be so far away from each other.  The only other times we’ve ever been apart […]

Chicken Enchiladas with Red Chili Sauce

What is with two-year-olds and boogers?  Thing 1 picks his nose quite frequently during the day.  And then gives me his boogers.  All balled up on the end of his finger.  He won’t wipe them on his shirt, the wall, the couch, or the floor.  He has to give them to me.  I wish I […]

Crispy Chicken with Creamy Italian Sauce

What is going on in my house? I feel like I have a newborn again. I’m sleeping 4 hours because both kids are getting up at various times during the night.  Thing 1 runs into my room and hops in bed.  Mom’s just too tired to bother putting him in his bed right away.  And he is a bed […]

Tebow Family Pizza

It has been quite the weekend.  I took Saturday off work to go to Treena’s house for the Ohio State/Nebraska game.  Winning!  That’s how we do.  {I’m better now}   Last night we went and got the boys’ Halloween costumes.  Much to Otto’s dismay, Target didn’t have a Batman in his size.  Everything was 1-2 […]

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Wednesday Whatsits. ———- I have a little treat for everyone today. Citizen Chef Sauces contacted me a couple weeks ago about trying out their new sauces.

Frittata Carbonara

Frittata Carbonara 5

Have you ever made a frittata before?  I hadn’t…until today.  That’s right kids, we’re popping my frittata cherry!  I can’t think of any better way to make over one of my favorite dishes – Fettuccine Carbonara – than by turning it into breakfast. I mean come on.  Bacon, eggs, Classic Alfredo sauce?  They were asking to be […]

Green Chile Shrimp Pasta

Green Chile Shrimp Pasta 1

Have you ever walked through a store, seen a product, and had an “I wonder if that’s really any good” moment? I have, frequently.  I was walking through Safeway last month and saw these Kraft Recipe Makers boxes near the meat case.  There were 3 different flavors that all sounded good.  But what were they […]
