Jacques Pepin Chicken with Garlic and Parsley (Persillade)

At about 2 am last night I was watching Jacques Pepin cooking videos on Facebook. I enjoy watching him because he makes it seem so easy to make meal and that is what I love. When I saw him make this dish I knew what was for dinner! Watching him make it in less than…

Slow Cooker Italian Beef – Chicago Style Sandwiches

We love to dip. Chips and dip. Bread to dip in olive oil. French fries to dip in sauces. It doesn’t matter. That is why we love this sandwich plus it has tons of flavor. It is simple to make the roast cooks in the slow cooker until you are ready to make the sandwiches….

5 Flavored Pancakes for Breakfast or Dinner

Happy Valentine’s Day! Pancakes for me are love. I made a post in 2016 about recreating our first Valentine’s Day. We were very poor and my favorite thing was Bisquik Pancake Mix (click for link to post). The most heartfelt gift I ever got, a box of pancake mix. My love language is obviously pancakes!…

Check In: Day 329

Week 47: I have to say getting out of the house and away for a bit has really helped me. I feel productive again and that I can accomplish tasks. I needed to clear my head and it was wonderful. My mother is scheduled to get her first Covid shot today. I had to schedule…

Slow Cooker Cheesy Potato Soup

To go from 75 degree days (well some of them were 50s) to less than 10 degrees overnight was tough. We had even originally planned to spend a few extra days in Georgia or Tennessee because my son had a college interview he had to be online to attend from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm….

Where Did I Go?

I had not eaten in a restaurant since March 10, 2020. I had one long weekend away from our home between March 12, 2020 and last week. I am a travel agent. My whole family loves to travel. My children went to Disney World in August 2020 because they needed a break and I knew…

Apple Fritter Casserole

The weekends tend to be my baking day. Because we have a bit more time and don’t have the pressure of getting everyone up and going it is easier to take the time to bake a sweet treat to add to our brunch. This dish is super easy and sweet so it fills those boxes…

Simple Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

We are a breakfast for dinner family. At least once a week, usually Wednesday or Thursday because they seem to be the toughest day of the week, we have some sort of breakfast/brunch meal. I love eggy casseroles with all sorts of toppings mixed in because they can be made ahead of time and rest…

Simple Chicken Pad Thai

About once every three months we order Pad Thai out. We love it. And like most dishes we order out we stop and think why don’t we make this more often because we can make it just as good or better and have it more often. Pad Thai is fairly easy to make but just…

Loaded Potato Skins

If you follow me at all you can probably tell that my mind is on football and appetizers. Yes, my Buffalo Bills lost the other day but it was a great run! Cannot be unhappy with how far they went this year. We are in an appetizer for dinner phase right now at our house….

Asian Chicken Lettuce Cups

Several times over the past few years we have ordered Asian Lettuce Cups while out to eat as an appetizer. Every time we think we should make these at home. They are fairly simple to make and we made them back in 2017 based off a recipe on Food. com (click for link to original…

More Super Bowl Sunday Recipes

Today we will see if our beloved Buffalo Bills make it to the Super Bowl. I am just amazed they have made it this far! Twenty-five years ago was the last time they made the playoffs. To be a Buffalo Bills fan is to be a true fan of the sport and the team. It…
