I have to admit when I first learned I had to write a blog about “heart healthy” lifestyles I winced. I’m probably not the best person to write this kind of blog. Mostly because while I do consider myself a healthy cook I’m pretty sure not everyone would agree. I mean I use lard. Yes lard. I… MORE

I've always been a fan of Johnsonville sausage. Mostly in the past I used the Italian sausage in spaghetti, sometimes for subs, and on occasion to boost the flavor in a meatball. Mostly spaghetti. I've tried the generic brands. They don't measure up to the flavor of Johnsonville. So they have… MORE

I love trying new foods. I also love sharing new foods with family. This month I had the opportunity to try Bison. For the first recipe I invited my cousin and her family over for dinner to try it with us. I chose Bison Fajitas. We grilled the bison instead of cooking it on the stove. Oh my,… MORE

I've missed having a grill this summer. No burgers, brats or anything. Sad right? But we recently got a grill. So we had to break it in. Which is always fun. So when it was time to fire up our new-to-us grill (love yard sales/moving sales) we went with a classic. Burgers. Yum. Simple,… MORE

I’ve always been an over-protective mom. I do a pretty good job of fighting all those over-protective feelings, most of the time. When my kids were little I would have loved to put them in pads and a helmet to keep them from getting hurt. Of course when the time came to actually put them in… MORE

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Even as a child it managed to squeak past Christmas on my favorite list. Why? Well because of the simplicity of the holiday. Good food, Family, Friends and being grateful for the blessings in your life. It just didn't get any better. Not to… MORE

It seems like ever since school started this year we have been running non-stop. With both of my boys in football this year, and my daughter going overboard with the clubs and extracurricular activities there doesn’t seem to be much time left for just relaxing and enjoying each other. Between… MORE

About Me
I am a stay at home mom with three beautiful kids. I love cooking and I am always looking for something new to cook for my family. My husband was thrilled when I found this website cause I have a tendancy to buy any cookbook I see!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking. Fall and winter are my favorite seasons because I can always have something in the oven. I also love crockpot dinners as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday cooking is the best. I love cooking the dessert my grandmother taught me how to make when I turned 14. Every year at Christmas and Thanksgiving I can hear her telling me what to do and how to do it, I can also feel her smack when I stirred the wrong way! Hehe.
My cooking triumphs
I have always been afraid of frying foods after a couple disastrous attempts at it when I was younger, my fingers always seemed to go into the oil, I have finally started trying frying foods. I am just a lot more cautious. Now I am trying to figure out muffins and pies, and different types of deserts. I think I have finally figured out cheesecake (yay!me).
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving I was making Ham in the Slow Cooker. About an hour before we were supposed to eat my son asks "Mom did you want the Crockpot plugged in?" Whoops! We had a bunch of yummy sides though :) Now every time I make something in the slow cooker my family asks if I plugged it in :)
