At first, I was updating every day... I decided that was boring!  Besides, last week was busy, busy.  We finally have a vacuum (yay!) and I've been cleaning and shopping all week long!  We went to the Cabrillo National Monument, which has some of the prettiest views I've ever… MORE

On Monday, my neighbor gave me a basil plant.  I don't know ANYTHING about growing basil, except that it needs lots of sun and we don't get much of it!  right now, it's sitting on our back porch (in the sunniest part of our home) and I'm inside researching how to not kill this little… MORE

Last night, I pulled some leftover shredded rotisserie chicken from the freezer and made chicken enchiladas along with the Mexican Sour Cream Rice found on this site.  I made a decision about recipes last night, too.  If a recipe is bland as written..that's just perfect!  The… MORE

I would like to report a successful (and fantastic) meal from last night.  First of all, sorry I didn't post last night.  We watched The Hurt Locker... it was such a good movie.  Hubs is in the Army, of course, so he insisted on interjecting all of his field knowledge to combat… MORE

My turkey burgers were an epic fail!  Okay.  Maybe not epic.  But what a flop of a meal :( I tried the Garlic and Ranch Turkey Burger recipe.  I added about 1/4 cup bread crumbs because I was afraid they would fall apart... which they did anyway.  The flavor was… MORE

For a wedding gift, we received a 10-cup food processor.  After fighting with it for about thirty minutes, I finally put it together to create one of my hubby's favorite treats.. oreo balls!  I know there are a ton of other things I can make in a food processor, but I have no clue… MORE

This blog is actually more a place for me to keep record of new recipes and menus for the future.  I hope that there are things that other people can use, reuse, and make their own.  I'm newly married to an Army man... that means our "dinner for two" usually means "family sized" or… MORE
