Memorial Day has come and gone, and with it, most of the food I had prepared. Do you have picnic leftovers, too? Everything was gone, except for two red, white, and blue deviled eggs and hot dogs. I had five hot dogs leftover. I was tired of chips and pretzels, which is what we usually have with our doggies. I needed to find something else to pair with hot dogs without running out to the grocery store. I came up with my rendition of Italian Pasta Salad.Continue reading “In-A-Pinch Pasta Salad”
What says Memorial Day or Fourth of July better than red, white, and blue deviled eggs? Perfect side dish for summertime picnics and get togethers. I used this recipe, and despite an almost Pinterest Fail on my part, I think they turned out rather nice looking! Oh, and they taste great as wellContinue reading “Red, White, and Blue Deviled Eggs”
I don’t know what took me so long to get on this sheet pan wave that has hit the nation. I had heard of sheet pan recipes, but had never tried one until today. This is an easy recipe that doesn’t really require any measurements.
Yes, I said it. I’m a lazy cook. I wish I didn’t have to cook, but my family likes to eat. So I try to make things as easy as possible for myself in the kitchen. I paired this salad with hot dogs for a meal and it was well worth the 5 minutes it took me to make!
I have always been interested in history. I’m especially curious to learn how people in different times and places lived. What they wore, how they talked, what they ate. I recently listened to a podcast episode called Colonial Baking from The Baking Podcast. One of the recipes they discussed was the Jumble recipe from Martha Washington’s cookbook.
My vegetarian daughter just came home from college. I made this meal and she just raved about it. Which is saying something because she is quite picky. It is super easy to make and ready to eat in under 30 minutes. Plus it satisfies the broccoli obsession that I have had lately.
With all the dreary weather we have been having in Pennsylvania this week, I was feeling hungry for some comfort food. I had leftover corn on the cob and turned it into Corn Casserole. One of my favorite ways to cook is to find leftovers I may have in the refrigerator and repurpose them into something else.
Sweet, salty, and crunchy and made in under 1 hour. My favorite type of recipe! I made this recipe for my co-workers about a year ago and it has been talked about ever since then! Seriously, this crack has a reputation!!
Yesterday, I was feeling like I needed to bake something seasonal. Since it is almost Valentine’s Day, I hopped on Pinterest and did a search for Valentine’s Day desserts. I found two recipes I wanted to try.
I don’t love to cook. In fact, I am sort of ambivalent about it. I cook six dinners a week because my family needs to eat. The meals aren’t gourmet, but they are still healthy. My time is precious and if you feel the same way as I do, don’t fret! I will share a few shortcuts to help you make healthy meals quickly.
