We have a family day get together at hubby's USMC Reserve Unit today and I felt like doing some baking and thought the family day would be a great place to "offload" the baked goods!! :) I have so many recipes in my box I've not gotten to try, so I thought I'd try a well-reviewed… MORE

This is one of the mail order recipe cards I received, probably a freebie, but I have subscribed to a couple of those services off and on over the years, so who knows for sure! :) I have been planning on making Banans Foster for over a week now and keep not getting around to it, so I have… MORE

Dinner was very good tonight! I followed the recipe for the Salmon pretty much exactly, but I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I thought the fish had pretty good flavor but it was more mild than I would have liked. I wanted more flavor. I let it marinade for nearly 3 hours, so maybe… MORE

I never did get these pictures uploaded until now, but had to share the beautiful farmer's basket we picked up almost 2 weeks ago. You can see the inspiration for almost ALL of the dishes I've cooked over the last week and a half! Vegetables: Bok Choy Romaine Lettuce Onions Red… MORE

Hubby wanted nachos for dinner last night (he's been on a nacho kick lately, it seems!) so when we were out running errands (spending WAY too many hours at Wal Mart waiting for our oil to be changed and tires to be rotated!!) we picked up some top sirloin for quesadillas as well. I'm not a… MORE

These were breakfast yesterday morning and I'm SO glad I finally got around to trying this recipe! They were very good straight from the oven (especially with a little butter melted in the middle) but I discovered they are even YUMMIER when you let them sit for a few hour! I nibbled one in… MORE

Friday's dinner was delicious! I prepped the Best Steak Marinade in Existence on Thursday PM and put it on 1 lb of Ribeye steaks (it made twice as much as I needed, so I put the other half of the marinade in a ziploc bag and threw it in the freezer). So the steaks got to soak all day in the… MORE

Last night for dinner we tried two new recipes, Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups and Yellow Squash Casserole. I had received two medium yellow summer squash in my Farmer's Market Basket on Tuesday and thought this would be a good recipe to use them in! We've been trying a lot of new things… MORE

We had a great weekend breakfast with a serving of Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes (our favorite!) and tried out a new Sauteed Apple recipe to go over them. I had an abundance of golden delicious apples from the Farmer's Market Basket I picked up a couple weeks ago and thought this would be a great… MORE

About Me
I love preparing meals for my family, I grew up eating home cooked dinners as a child, and felt that time around the table was very special. It gives me a LOT of pleasure to prepare something my family enjoys!
My favorite things to cook
I cook with a lot of chicken, we prefer boneless, skinless breasts. I don't think I have a preference for a certain style of food, or ethnicity. I cook mainly simple, meat and rice/pasta/potatoes kinds of meals. I enjoy trying different flavors and fixing new recipes. We enjoy italian, southern, mexican, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's sort of a tradition in our house to have biscuits and gravy every weekend, usually Saturday morning. My husband grew up in the South, and it's comfort food! I love preparing a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner: Roast turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and cranberry jelly... MMMMM!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I think I was pretty thrilled with myself the first time I successfully made a home-made pizza crust. I am also very good with homemade breads, and very proud of my banana and lemon poppy seed breads!
My cooking tragedies
I have two classic cooking tragedies from when I had just started cooking (age 16) - the first time was when I tried to thicken gravy by adding flour directly into the HOT liquid - LOTS of clumps... it was SOO gross! The 2nd time was when I tried to make my first white sauce, and I just could NOT get the flour to milk ratio right, it was pasty and disgusting!!! I've learned a lot since then, but those are classic OOPS memories!
