Karami Salsas and Creamy Shrimp Enchiladas


Karami Salsa* sent me two jars of their Japanese salsa to try. I went on their website Karamisalsa.com (click for link to website) to find out more about the company and the product. The first thing I liked was the ingredient list: roasted green chili, organic teppei blue agave, organic gluten-free tamari, garlic, citric acid. That…

Screamin’ Sicilian Frozen Pizza – I am a Marketers Dream


We were at the grocery store the other night to pick up a couple of fresh items to use in dinners over the next few days. It was getting kind of late and I needed to go home and make dinner. It was supposed to be potatoes and ham au gratin with broccoli and cauliflower…

Country Crock – Make It Your Own, Mix-Ins Cookies


I received this product free from Influenster in exchange for my unbiased review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I remember Country Crock from when I was a kid. We had big giant brown tubs of it in the refrigerator and ate it on toast and bread every day.  About 10 – 15 years…

Wow! Ore-Ida Shared One of My Recipes


The other day I took a quick look at my stats and thought, “That can not possibly be correct!” My page views were 500% higher than normal. I looked a little deeper and saw that most of it was attributed to one post “Greek Totchos with Homemade Tzatziki.“(click for link to post)  I wrote this…

Taco Braid – When Life Happens


Confession time. Life happens. You can have the  perfect plans and still something can go wrong. Take dinner for example. You have your menu planned, you have the meat defrosting in the refrigerator or cooking in the slow cooker. Then life happens. The power goes out late in the afternoon so the meal in your slow…

Gigi’s Cupcakes


My daughter and I LOVE cupcakes. When we lived in Rochester, New York, she and I would take study breaks from homeschooling and head to Sugar Mountain Bakery in Brighton to pick up a cupcake, or two. It was always such a fun treat or us. Once we moved to Michigan we could never find…

The Best Oven Baked French Fries with Balsamic French Fry Dip


With time tight I decided to try these Al Fresco Grillers that I bought a few weeks ago. I thought with all the busy nights we would be having with dance classes and after school activities that these would be something to try for a quick, easy dinner that I didn’t have to think about….

Country Sweet Oven Fried Chicken


Things are moving along. We are in our second week of school and there have been some bumps and groans but so far things are going okay. Now comes the real work. The first week back is always this lovely dance of getting to know you and now the real personalities on both sides will…

Grilled Basil Farmer Cheese Stuffed Brats Wrapped in Bacon


We travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for at least 3-4 long weekends during the summer. My daughter Feises (Irish Dance Competitions) during those weekends. One thing we do every trip is stop at Kopp’s for Frozen Custard, it is super yummy, and shop at Brennan’s which is right next door (oh, so handy) for cheese. On…
