Healthy living is an important factor in my family's lifestyle.  It is a conscious way of living that is ever evolving.  I have to say that this was not always the case, unfortunately, but I continue to make great strides by taking lots of baby steps.My journey has had many twists and turns… MORE

Buttermilk Strawberry Shortcake
About this Cook
I'm a mom to 5 great kids and married to my best friend for 26 years. All Recipes has been an amazing source of ideas and inspiration that has refueled my interest in cooking and sparked one in my children.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet or covered in tomato sauce! Right now I am in a bread and pastry craze.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a family cook off every few months. Everyone finds a recipe on AR or comes up with an idea and we shop, cook and enjoy together. We have had some pretty interesting meals!
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my kids to cook. All 5 kids know how to shop for groceries and put together a few meals. They can bake, too! Now, if they could do their laundry just as well......;-)
My cooking tragedies
Leaving a cake on the table to answer the doorbell and come back to find our 2 Great Danes chowing down on the "OMG-this-took-me-forever-to-make-and-decorate-for-Christmas-dinner" cake! Arghhhhhh!

Who Hash
This was the Johnsonville Sausage remake recipe I chose. I used ground sausage in place of the canned ham and I diced red skinned potatoes in place of the canned. It was wonderful! So good! Served with an over easy egg to break open over top. Really, really good. So good, in fact, I even got another marriage proposal from the Hubs! Mmmhmm - score!

Amazing Muffin Cups
Lets just say we have a new favorite for breakfast. These are wonderful fresh out of the oven or reheated the next day. The Hubs put one on an English muffin for a breakfast sandwich the next day and one of my kids put two in a tortilla, wrapped it up and ate it on the way out the door to school. I made two versions - one with the shredded potatoes and I found they they stuck in the pan a bit. Second version I use some potato rounds that just fit in the bottom of the pan. The verdict was that everyone preferred the potato round better. More potato flavor and more substantial to bite into. Next time I make these I will add some fresh parsley and perhaps some other veggies like shredded zucchini, mushrooms and onion. Lots of possibilities with this recipe. I did freeze two just to see what it would be like. Well, they freeze best when completely cooled. First batch they were still too warm and they defrosted "sponge like". The second time I refrigerated the muffins first then froze. We reheated for 40 seconds and they were perfect! I plan on making a large batch to take on vacation and for on-the-go days when you need something quick. What could be better -These are easy enough to whip up and will last (if your lucky!) a few days in the fridge AND they freeze well!. Great recipe we will be making again! **My daughter came up with the idea to maybe try using silver dollar pancake on the bottom of the cupcake - will be giving that a try too! :)

Grandma Rita's Soft Butter Rolls
I made these hen it was a personal recipe. I have made them several times since that first review. They are wonderful rolls! So glad it was published. My Review: These were wonderful, Lela! I made everything in my KA mixer. I only needed about 3 cups of flour - perhaps a little less than that. The rolls were flaky, rose well and browned nicely. Thanks for sharing your recipe! The rolls were a treat slathered in homemade butter and dipped in gravy.
