My older sister moved this weekend for a new job.  I wanted to send her and her adorable dog a little something to welcome them into their new home.  Since I had the day off work Monday for MLK, Jr. Day, I used it as my opportunity to spend a lot of time in the […]

Chocolate Crinkles

These are one of my sister’s favorite cookies and now I think they are becoming one of mine.  I was craving these all week and finally made them the other day.  I only made one batch and saved the rest of the batter to make 2 1/2 more batches today.  One of the reasons I […]

It’s been so cold here, that the last thing I want to do is hop in my car and go to the grocery store.   So, I’ve been trying to make do with the items already in my pantry.  I had some noodles, cream of mushroom soup and hamburger on hand, so I whipped up a […]

After church today we ate at a new restaurant in town called Meatheads.  It’s a fast food burgers and fries joint… think In & Out.  The fries are made fresh right when you order them…from the stack of potatoes they have piled behind the counter. Our meal for two only came to $5.37 because we […]

There are nights when I just randomly make something for no particular reason.  Yesterday, after work, I took a power nap and woke up craving peanut butter cookies.  I mentioned it to Ben and then just passed it off and didn’t do anything to satisfy my craving.  About an hour later, Ben asked me, “aren’t […]

Over Christmas, my motheri-in-law gave me her January 2009 edition of Fine Cooking magazine.  She told me she bought the magazine for only one recipe, the one on the back cover.  As I flipped through the pages, I saw many many recipes I wanted to try, but guess which one I tried first?  The one […]

On the Penny page, Mama Bear asked “I was craving biscuits tonight while making dinner (butter chicken over rice) and would love your best biscuit recipe, if you don’t mind sharing!” Well, Mama Bear, yesterday I posted these Cheesy Garlic Biscuits that are fantastic.  I made them just for you, in fact, so that I […]

Cheesy Garlic Biscuits (Does Red Lobster ring a bell?)

dsc_64181

Growing up, if my parents were to go to Red Lobster, it was a treat.  As a child, though, I would say “yuck!” because I couldn’t even stand the smell of seafood.  To this day, I’m still not the biggest fan of seafood, but I’m finding that it’s because I grew up in an area […]

My parents visited from Michigan this weekend to celebrate our Christmas.  They arrived New Years’ Day and were going to stay until today, but they ended up leaving last night because an ice storm was in the forecast for today in Michigan. The first morning they were here, I made some Monkey Bread with my […]
