Muffaletta


This would make an outstanding addition to a Super Bowl Party! It can be made the morning of the party or the night before and it’s ready to go when the party starts! My kids wanted to try “authentic” food from New Orleans.  Every so often my children decide they want to try food from…

Chicken Salad Sandwiches


Now that my children are home and starting to adjust back to real life I have to tell you how much I love their camp. We have been planning for two years, since my daughter first went to Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, that we would send both children at the same time when our…

Cowboy Casserole II


So, this dinner was supposed to be entirely different.  Well, it was supposed to be a Cowboy Lasagna like at Peppermint Mocha Mama.blogspot.com.  The problem was I started reading the reviews.  Many said it needed more flavor, the tater tots were mushy not crispy, it used canned tomato soup which I don’t use.  So, what…

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast: Cook Once, Eat Twice!


I had a beautiful pork roast to cook the other night.  It was a To-Go meal night and I had two meeting to attend before getting everyone in the car to go to dance classes.  I needed something super easy and flavorful.  I found the recipe for a Pork Roast Supper at Muffy Martini.com that…

Slow Cooker Maple Dijon Pork Chops


I love the open slow cooker put stuff in and have dinner waiting when you come home dishes.  This dish actually takes about 10 minutes of preparation before putting it into the slow cooker.  It is so worth it though.  The delicious pork is tender and has a great flavor from the onions cooked in…

Rachael Ray’s French Onion Soup


My daughter hates onions.  If she seems them in a dish she will painstakingly pick out each and every one of them.  I take care to make sure they are usually finely diced and mixed thoroughly into each dish.  The two exceptions she has are French Onion Soup and Onion Rings.  I have tried to…

Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Cheese Crustless Quiche


I love weekends!  Sleeping in, lazy days spent with the family and late dinners happen most weekends.  I LOVE bacon.  But, I am not a fan of cooking it first thing in the morning.  The smell makes me feel nauseated.  My children will tell you they very rarely get bacon for breakfast.  I don’t mind…

Cheesy Hamburger Soup


The weather seems to have gone crazy lately.  It has been beautifully warm like the summer was supposed to be.  Yet, it has been crazy cold at times.  A slight taste of what is to come? I have been at the grocery store for quite a bit lately to pick up those one or two…

Parmesan Crab Hamburgers


So after having to pretend to be Cyber Woman today (and it really is pretend!) my computer is once again functioning.  New mouse, new speakers and that pesky cord that needs to be plugged in so the keyboard actually functions is now back where it belongs.  It has been a long day. But, I had…

Chicken with Rosemary Sauce


So, we ate dinner last night at 9:15 pm.  I convinced my children we were eating like Europeans.  I don’t know why it was so late but at least we finally all sat down at the table together. This is not a great picture of the meal.  It was really dark by the time we…
