We interrupt this 31Days of posting new recipes to bring you the following service announcement: My family went camping this weekend. We grilled, had sandwiches, and made chili in the crockpot. There may have even been poptarts. Needless to day, I didn’t try anything new for my 31 Days series, so I have no […]
Okay, okay. I KNOW that I’ve been heavy on the pasta recipes lately, but you know, it’s just so EASY and usually it’s something I don’t have to argue for the kids to eat, so we do eat quite a bit of it. This one looked yummy – it’s pasta with FOUR cheeses. Gotta try […]
This is a recipe that I’ve actually pinned more than once from a couple of different sites. Guess I really liked the look of it! However, it’s not easily made with ingredients on hand, so it’s not something I would usually make without going on a special trip to the store. Original Recipe: Homemade Italian Cream […]
This is another recipe that has been pinned since the beginning of my Pinterest days. We buy doughnuts from the shop down the street probably twice a month, so it’s not the ‘unhealthyness’ of them that steered me away… maybe the mess of frying in oil? Original Recipe: Homemade Doughnuts by The Happy Housewife Modifications: […]
These just sound yummy. They’ve been pinned to my board for 2 years now, and I never tried them. What a perfect time to do so! Original Recipe: Gingerbread Waffles by Annie’s Eats Modifications: None. I even grated my own ginger and nutmeg. Procedure: Quite easy. Mix all together and cook with waffle iron. Verdict: […]
Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl Set in a Jane Austin-ish era, Keeping the Castle, is a delightful book with a spunky young heroine set on marrying well to save her family’s estate. Although somewhat predictable, there were several fun little plot twists. The whole thing seemed to be plucked from a Jane Austin plot, […]
Pasta is such an easy dish, and the kids usually will eat it, but I find myself cooking it the same way over and over again. When I saw this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, I thought it sounded like something I wanted to try. Original Recipe: Creamy Tomato & Spinach Pasta […]
Well, we have one more production under our belts. Even though it’s a lot of work, I am so glad my kids love being involved in theatre. I feel like it helps them develop confidence and poise, and I love that they have so much fun. I’m also thankful that they’re all involved in the […]
I had high hopes for this recipe. I love making homemade breads. Topped with a pat of butter, there’s not much better than fresh bread still warm from the oven. The whole family enjoys the bread they serve as an appetizer at the Outback Steakhouse, so I thought I’d give this recipe a try. Original […]
It’s hard to pass up a recipe with cheese, ranch and potatoes. I knew I’d like to try this one sometime. Original Recipe: Cheesy Ranch Potatoes by Mrs. Happy Homemaker Modifications: Was out of chili powder, so I substituted Creole seasoning. Procedure: Very easy! Verdict: Oh. So. Yummy. They reminded me of the cheese fries […]
