I have always, always wanted to try spanish paella. My husband has always wanted to try plantains (tostones!) Tonight was the night. I planned on cooking the plantains, and googled "cuban recipes" paella came up in my search. Although traditionally spanish, it was close enough for me! I had… MORE

I'm not sure if I posted this recipe here yet, but I got this from Tyler Florence.  My friend Helen and I made it two years ago at Christmas time, and I think I will give it a go again this year!  It is so light and refreshing!  Although, this year things have changed as I cannot eat anything… MORE

I was craving some good comfort food for dinner tonight.  It must be due to all of the rain and cloudy weather we've been getting lately.  But now that I have to do the gluten free thing, it's a little more challenging to make a family friendly dinner that I can eat too!  Now normally, I am… MORE

Today I made pumpkin bread that was gluten free and sugar free!  Well, not entirely sugar free, because there is natural sugar in pumpkin, and some in the baking mix.  But I was so craving pumpkin bread that I had to make it and have a slice.  The best news is that my family loved it!  It was… MORE

It's been a long time since I've blogged a recipe.  Mostly because of summer festivities, and also because I was recently diagnosed with Lyme Disease.  Crazy, I know.  But yes I was bitten by a tick while hiking in Big Sur, CA.  So, back to the diet.  My doc has told me no sugar and no… MORE

I have seen grilled Romaine in magazines and on Food Network, and finally tried doing it myself tonight.  I bought a new cookbook "Cooking Light, Fresh Food fast Weeknight Meals", and it had the recipe, along with a homemade dressing.  Some tips: You can chop the grilled bread… MORE

We love doing Raclette.  Our friends (the husband is from Switzerland) introduced us to Raclette years ago, and Sunday night we had them over, along with some other friends.  Although our swiss friend says our ingredients aren't exactly traditional, he enjoyed it anyway.  It's basically a… MORE
Delicious!

In all three categories she won 2nd place overall!  She was very excited, and got a WalMart gift card to boot! When all was said and done, we did the right thing with the remains.  The goats and the chickens got the spoils...  They loved the crushed up rice crispy/graham… MORE

My daughter Emily's school is having a Rice Crispy Sculpture contest, and we were all over that one!  The theme is Western Round Up for an event they have at the school every May.  I couldn't find very many ideas on Rice Crispy design, so I looked at western cakes, and we came up with… MORE

About Me
I'm married with 3 children. I live on 7 acres with chickens, goats, and dogs. Being a city girl and living and traveling all over the world, this lifestyle is a new adventure for me. I'm an RN and I work at the local hospital in town. I love my job, and love my community! UPDATE: We have just recently relocated to the south! My husband was relocated to Marietta, GA. We are now in the suburbs, and I am embracing our new lifestyle with open arms!
My favorite things to cook
I recently had to go Gluten Free and low sugar. This is actually a good thing for my cooking progression! I no longer buy any processed or packaged products. I make just about everything from scratch! I love soups and international foods! I absolutely love experimenting with spices and fresh herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking with family and friends. I always give my kids jobs in the kitchen, it helps me and also helps them learn how to chop, dice, zest, puree, braise, etc... And nothing is more fun than having a friend visit, and cooking a meal together while we drink wine, and catch up on lost time!
My cooking triumphs
Creating my own recipes! I recently started doing this. I will research a food, look at several other recipes, and combine and moderate to my own taste. Check out my recipe box to see some!
My cooking tragedies
There have been so many. The family joke is my burnt bread. I burn the rolls/bread for every Christmas and Thanksgiving!!! My friend and I made our first T-giving turkey and left the plastic bag-o-guts in the turkey! And of course, there's the time that I mistakently added 1 cup of salt instead of sugar in a cookie recipe!
