New eating habits means new recipes!

Wow, it’s been awhile since I last blogged. I did say I was taking a break and a break I did take. So much has happened in the last few months. Some good, some bad. But I will spare you the ugly details and move forward. I recently learned I am very intolerant to corn … Continue reading

Buffalo Blue Baked Potato

I was searching Pinterest for some ideas to use with my cooking classes for kids when I found a recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Potatoes.

Way behind on writing

I should have written this a few weeks back but I’ve been lazy. Yep, too lazy to write but I’ve been a bit busy. Two days a week I run my grandson into the next city for a summer camp and then pick him up and bring him home again. I have time when he … Continue reading

Celebration Night!

Today is our 19th wedding anniversary. I have the world’s best husband but then again, I am quite biased. He treats me like a queen and encourages me in every single thing I do to make myself a better person, whether it’s in the role of a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend,chef, and soon-to-be … Continue reading

Tips for a Tip….Sirloin Tip that is….

When I was grocery shopping over the weekend I found the price of cheap ground beef per pound to be only $.10 cheaper than a sirloin tip roast per pound. I decided not to settle for the cheaper meat, most likely with additives, and get the roast. We don’t eat very much red meat here … Continue reading
