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 […]

Hi Charles!  Thanks for the question.  Other readers – If you checked out my tab (titled Penny), you will see that Charles asked “I’d like to know your method for whipping cream cheese. Any additives? Milk? Cream?” It’s very quite simple, Charles, and I’ll be more than happy to answer!  Just a splash of milk […]
