Loaded Buffalo Chicken Casserole

Verdict: My family really likes this dish. I generally make it with leftover chicken breasts from another meal or that I cook extra when I am making chicken breasts anyway. I just cube it up and save it for a dish just like this! The Ranch over the fries is one of our favorite parts….

5 Recipes for “Snacky” Dinners

We love snacky dinners. Little bites of several dishes or dips and veggies are always fun to eat and easy to prepare ahead of time so that you can eat when you want. We sometimes plan a game night or movie night around these dinners to make them even more fun! Garlic Shrimp Dip (click…

Saturday Musings: 2

This is a year of significant birthdays in our house. I am the only one in our house who doesn’t have a birthday during this six week period. My baby boy turns 18 and my big girl turns 21 this year! The passage of time has never really bothered me until recently. I always tried…

Baked Apple Breakfast Casserole

Every Thursday is breakfast for dinner in our house. I love a flavorful breakfast casserole. It is hearty and and will keep me full the rest of the night. I forget to make these casseroles for dinner as they are supposed to rest over night and then you bake them for breakfast, right? Well, I…

Refrigerator Pasta

This sounds strange but it uses up our pieces of things before they go bad in the vegetable drawer. I always start with the same basic pasta recipe and then I try to remember to pull out the pepper, one carrot, spinach, etc… before it starts to go bad and put it on a shelf…

Canadian Poutine

During the past few weeks I was able to take my daughter to a Feis (rhymes with mesh) in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Lake Geneva is a cute little resort town and we always have a great time. We ate our lunch on a breezy afternoon near the lake. It was cold but such a lovely…

Saturday Musings: 1

I have decided to change up my Saturday postings a bit. I had been doing a Checking In weekly during the past year. Then I got to the year mark and decided Covid-19 wasn’t going to be going any time soon so I needed to find another way to think about this time. I had…

Checking In: Day 371

Week 53: So after 10 days after my first shot I got Covid arm. I got a big red bump that is about 2″-3″ in diameter. It is hot and itchy. After calling my doctor we are thinking all my health problems over the past two weeks are linked back to the shot. I am…

Simple Boston Creme Cake

We are still loving all the desserts! I love Poke Cakes because you can make so many different cakes from one idea. This cake was requested by my wife the other night when she was craving Boston Creme Donuts. It gives you the flavor of the Boston Creme Pie or Donuts without the heaviness. I…

Barbecue Stuffing Meatloaf

Things are getting better. I have had gout since I was 18 years-old. I can go years without a flare up but I started on last Friday night. I thought 2-3 days as usual and I would be back to normal. Nope. Not this time. It started to move from my big toe across the…

The Summer of …

Last year was the Summer of Grilling for us. We grilled everything and anything we could. Ordinary chicken, steaks, and fish to the extraordinary turkey and whole ham. It was fun for us and made us really be creative in what we were having and we found we will only grill a turkey from now…
