Looking forward to leftovers…

I may have mentioned this before, but I LOVE to cook! I am not perfect, but sometimes, when I have the time, I do pretty darn good! I listen to alot of food podcasts and over the past year I kept hearing about Pomegranate Molasses, so I decided to order some and make something with it. This recipe, for one-pan Pomegranate Chicken was perfect, although … Continue reading Looking forward to leftovers…

Cream of Roasted Mushroom soup~

Wow, what a week it has been! 😬 I hope this finds you doing well, staying healthy!  I have to admit, I really never thought I would live in a time like we are living in today…last night at Midnight, the state of Minnesota went into “stay-at-home” status…shelter-in-place…lockdown…whatever you want to call it.  I have basically doing just that for the past two weeks…now I … Continue reading Cream of Roasted Mushroom soup~

Homemade Gyro’s~

My first experience with this delicious sandwich was many years ago, when I lived in Iowa. I had a couple of food memories created in those years…the most amazing fried Pork Tenderloin sandwich, that I used to get from my local Hy-Vee deli counter…that sucker came on a standard hamburger bun, slathered with mayo, and layered with lettuce and pickles.  The Pork patty itself was … Continue reading Homemade Gyro’s~

Making Tamales & memories…

Greetings fellow foodie friends! It’s mid-November here in Minnesota and we’ve yet to really see any Winter, which is just fine by me! But, my body-clock knows it’s almost here, because I am craving soups, macaroni & cheese, any pasta dish for that matter and bread and cheese. Oof! I’ve decided that instead of being all proud of myself for knowing how to whip up … Continue reading Making Tamales & memories…

Summer of Salads, Chicken…

Prior to getting my smoker, Smoked Chicken would be something I would rarely get the opportunity to enjoy, but when I did…oh, I did!  So, this year when we picked up our portion of chickens from our friends in Hugo that raise & process them for us, I knew some of these little babies were going in the smoker!  We had a friend over the … Continue reading Summer of Salads, Chicken…

A family recipe, Hunkie Ribs…

Greetings food-lovin’ friends! Yes, I know I’ve been away awhile…I have been busy with family & work… the kind that pays the bills, so sadly my food blogging has taken a back seat this past month.  I have also been getting ready for a couple great blog post series for the Summer, that I hope you’ll join me on! First, a “Summer of Salads” sharing … Continue reading A family recipe, Hunkie Ribs…

Curried Chicken & Couscous…and the winter that won’t end!

Sorry I’ve been away for awhile…priorities have gotten in the way of fun…work…taxes…family…cats…you know, LIFE!  🙂  I feel like we are drowning in snow, here in Minnesota.  We’ve had 6+ inches of snow this past week (to add to the two+ feet on the ground) and today we are under a Winter Storm Warning currently with another 3-5 inches of snow today…AND temperatures are diving back … Continue reading Curried Chicken & Couscous…and the winter that won’t end!

The day my life changed, 13 years ago…

I became the mother of a teenager this week.  Wow, that truly boggles my mind.  I remember waiting for her arrival, just 13 short years ago.  She was late…not surprising, she likes to take her sweet time with most everything!  I remember feeling like she’d never get here and then after waiting what seemed like forever, I didn’t even realize I had gone into labor! … Continue reading The day my life changed, 13 years ago…
