Bisquick Sausage Balls


Getting ready for football games this weekend? We love football and appetizers in our house. I try to change them up each week adding one or two new ones to our usual staples of dips and wings.  When I read about the Sausage Balls I was a bit skeptical. I love sausage but Bisquick and…

Chicken & Cheese Slow Cooker Tacquitos


I am tired. We are coming up on the end of September and I am exhausted already. How am I going to make it to June? We had my son’s annual Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting this week. I was a bit concerned about it as they are going to want to dismiss him from…

Unstuffed Pepper Casserole – Making Two Meals at Once


So, yesterday I said I cooked all the meat for two dinners. I took one half of the ground beef and Italian sausage mixture and I used it to make Pizza Sloppy Joes (click for link to recipe).  While that was cooking that meal I made an Unstuffed Pepper Casserole. It was great because when we…

Pizza Sloppy Joes


You know I am all about saving time making dinners. This was one of those times when I could cook all the meat at once and make two meals out of it. The first one was the Pizza Sloppy Joes and the second meal was an Unstuffed Pepper Casserole. It was great to have two…

The Piano Guys – Our Weekend Treat


We went to see a concert with the Piano Guys the other night. I didn’t really know what to expect. I had heard the kids play a few of their songs on Youtube but didn’t really know what to expect. They had a cellist and my son plays the cello. Then a friend was getting…

Slow Cooker Boneless Pork Chops with Onion Gravy


Thursdays are one of those days where we leave the house at 11:30 am and don’t return until 8:30 pm. It is a long, long day for everyone. If I don’t have dinner planned and ready we are in trouble. This was one of “those” days. But, my partner stepped in and took care of…

Pesto Mac & Cheese with Chicken


Of all the summer/early fall favorite flavors I have to say basil pesto is one of my favorite. This is one of my newly acquired tastes. There are many foods I never tried until I was an adult. Sour cream, broccoli, pesto, and grape leaves to name a few. I love them all now, but…

Super Simple Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup


My kitchen is not magic. Food does not just appear at dinner time when everyone is ready to eat. Lately, it has been tough to get everything together. This new back-to-school schedule is kicking my butt. This is the first full week with everything, except community orchestra for my son. We have slowly been adding…

Apple Pie Pancakes


Sometimes breakfast for dinner is a great option when you are looking to have dinner on the table quickly. Whether it is pancakes, waffles or eggs dinner can be fun and on the table quickly. Apples are plentiful and inexpensive in our area right now and we have gotten several bunches in our CSA share….

Old Fashioned Butter Chicken


It was a crazy, busy weekend this week so there were no weekend posts like usual. I have only missed posting 6 days in the last 5 weeks. There was a Feis at the Michigan Irish Festival this weekend and on Sunday we went to see the National Touring Company of Wicked. Why have I…
