My in-laws were in town this weekend.  Usually when they come to town we drive up to Madison, WI to see Ben’s brother and his wife.  So, this weekend when we drove up there, our sister-in-law made plans for the gals to go apple picking while the guys were golfing.  Our friends from Chicago also […]

Wow.. life got busy. Thank goodness for my catalog of quick recipes, because that’s all I’ve been able to make lately. You haven’t seen any new recipes up in a while because I haven’t made anything new. I guess it’s okay to reuse recipes…that’s what this blog is for, right? But, I do not want […]

If you live in Nashville, or ever visit, you must stop at Gigi’s Cupcakes for a nice treat. Since we visit Nashville often, I’ve looked up cupcake places in the area and found this one months ago. But, we never had the chance to actually check it out the last few times we were in […]

I remembered they were SOOO good and just had to Google for a recipe. After searching and comparing, I found this one to […]

Penny Pincher: The Melting Pot

MeltingPot

You are probably wondering how an expensive place like The Melting Pot can ever be in one of my Penny Pincher categories. Well, let me enlighten you… If you live in the area, the Oakbrook Terrace location (on Roosevelt Rd) is shutting it’s doors for good. This Saturday is their last day, because they have […]

Please click here for an updated photo and recipe. Lately I haven’t been motivated to take nice photos of our dinners. After working all day then coming home and cooking, I’m too drained to think of a cute, creative way to capture my plate on camera. And, the dark nights are now arriving earlier, so […]

Creamy Chicken Pockets

Yesterday, as I was planning dinners for the week, I saw this recipe on the front page of AllRecipes. It caught my eye, so I had to try it! However, I read some reviews of the original recipe and decided to change it up a bit myself. The recipe you see below includes my revisions. […]

In Chicago, there are many different restaurants that serve Chicago-style pizza. What’s very evident, though, is that everyone has their favorite. Whether it’s because they like the pizza, know the owners, grew up eating from that particular place, or just haven’t had the chance to try another, we all seem to defend our preferred Chicago-style […]
