Breakfast Bowls with Sausage Gravy


It’s breakfast for dinner day! You know I love my breakfast for dinner meals as they are so simple to make and my family thinks it’s a big treat. Little do they know I really don’t like breakfast meals at breakfast time because I find them too heavy to eat but love them later in…

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Loin


I usually leave writing this introduction to the recipe until the very end just before I am ready to publish the recipe. I am never quite sure what I am going to write about until I start writing. My kids, the weather, life, or whatever happens to be on the news may make it into…

Italian Sausage Alfredo Casserole


Well, life decided to throw us a bit of a curve ball. We are all fine but we received a call from the County Health Department that my son was in contact with a person with Covid-19 at school and now he has to quarantine until October 29th. If he shows any symptoms between now…

Grilled Pork Loin Sandwiches


I have been reading on the internet about many people planning for the next round of Covid-19 and/or the flu by buying extra groceries and stocking up. I haven’t really thought of this as we have our little pantry that I use to try and only buy things on sale when I can. We are…

Simply Delicious: BLT Sandwiches


Bacon! I love bacon. Salty, crispy, and yummy. I had read awhile back about weaving your bacon to make a better BLT (bacon, lettuce, and tomato) sandwich and have kept it in the back of my head to try when I got a chance. We were picking the last of our tomatoes we grew and…

Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Sauerkraut and Apples: Revisited


This dish has been at the top of my most popular recipes for over a year now. I recently remade the recipe. I love going back and revisiting dishes from the past. My family likes the sauerkraut and apple mixture the sweet/tart tang. You can even add a splash of apple cider vinegar to the…

German Burgers


My family loves German food and I am always looking for new burger toppings and ways to make them. How about combining two of our favorites? German food and Burgers? Yes! Verdict: The flavor of these were amazing. The mixture of ground pork and beef with the caraway seeds added a great flavor and tons…

Grilled Beer Brats: Revisited


I cannot believe this is the first time we have grilled brats this year. Before we moved to the Midwest we may have had brats about once a year. They are bigger than hotdogs here. Everywhere you go there are brats for sale or someone is serving them at a picnic or barbecue. This recipe…

BBQ Rub Pork Chops


We went down to the beach the other night to watch the sunset. My favorite part of the night here is that at sunset they play “Taps” up on the bluff. Everyone stops and goes silent. It is the most amazing thing to see and hear. There are people that come here on vacation and…

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs


We got my daughter’s test back and it was negative! Yeah! She was thrilled. She didn’t think she had it but it is still a bit unnerving knowing that you can have it and be asymptomatic. Now, that she has that down she has also decided to take at least a one semester deferment from…

Grilled Kafta Kebob


We love Kafta. It is funny when we grill this out all the people that are walking by kind of stop and sniff. It smells amazing as it is cooking. All the spices are delicious! It is so simple to make too. You can top this with tahini from a jar or we make our…

Grilled Pork Tenderloin


I love the lilies that we have planted in front flower beds. Lilies are one of my favorite flowers. They are so pretty. At our home in Rochester I had white, pink, and reddish lilies that I loved. We planted these three years ago and will divide them later this summer so that they don’t…
