I did make a few changes to the recipe. Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti 16 oz of spaghetti, cooked 1 lb. Velveeta 2 cups cooked […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

We have had too much cold weather and nothing sounds better than soup on a cold day. This weekend the weather warmed up and it was beautiful and sunny. I still was hungry for soup! Chicken soup is very easy in the slow cooker. This recipe is just like every chicken soup out there. Not from any recipe […]

Food For My Soul

I spent the last year putting most of my energy into recovering from my barn accident last April. I am finally doing really well. Some days I still have a limp, but I am trying hard to walk without one. I am not totally “there” yet, but I think each month is bringing me to my desired goal. […]

Mae’s Brownies

My special stand-by for brownies is a recipe that was given to me by my sister’s mother-in-law. She has been gone for years, but I continue to make her brownies. She was a lovely lady and would make a batch and just drop them by for no reason. They are always delicious and when I […]

Girls Party Weekend

This was a very special weekend with friends, food and fun. Traveled to a fun destination where friends and I had a little fun in the sun shade, good food and hosted a wedding shower for a close friend. Love any reason for a road trip and this short weekend provided us with fun times! No road trip […]

Eggless Chocolate Cake

When my mom was growing up it was very hard for her to have desserts because she was very allergic to eggs and nuts. Neighbors were very helpful to give her recipes for sweets which did not have nuts or eggs, but she never had a good cake recipe that tasted good to her. This […]

We love salmon around this house and have found a super easy way to have it anytime we want. If you have a Costco close by then pick up a box of Morley’s Alaskan Salmon. They are individually packaged and marinated fillets ready to heat and serve. We have ours with potatoes and a fresh […]

New Favorite Ice Cream

I love ice cream! Mostly in the summer, but even in the winter too. This is my newest favorite. I buy it when it goes on sale. It is simply pure yumminess! (Yumminess is NOT a real word, but sure describes this ice cream) PS: Sorry about the tacky paper towel the ice cream lid […]

Key Lime Cookie Straws

These are the best little cookies and especially tasty when you do not want to bake homemade cookies. These cookies have a nice key lime flavor with a powdered sugar coating. One word describes them…YUM! They are made under the Target name. They also make cheese straws also in several different flavors which are really great. […]

Garlic is Good

I love garlic in basically most any food except for desserts! The only thing I love more is the garlic when it is growing in a garden. Garlic is a simple work of art! Every garden should have garlic to enhance the look of one’s garden. Last summer, I visited a garden that had a […]

Wordless Wednesday

Well, nearly wordless. In Japan and a few other Asian countries they are growing watermelons in a square shape. How cool is that? You ask why it is cool? Because they fit much better in the fridge than round ones. They grow the watermelons in square forms. Very interesting. Wonder if we will ever see […]
