Looking forward to leftovers…

This recipe, for one-pan Pomegranate Chicken was perfect, although … Continue reading Looking forward to leftovers…

Wow, what a week it has been! ūüė¨ 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~

Goulash, like the good ol’ days…

I grew up in a little river town, in southeastern Minnesota…at least for the years of my life I remember anyway.  I was born in Iowa and lived there until I was starting Junior High School… This dish, has all the feels for me…I remember crowding around a little table, in the middle of a tiny kitchen that also served as the back entrance of … Continue reading Goulash, like the good ol’ days…

Silver linings…

Once upon a time, there was a girl that really didn’t know how to cook. ¬†She met a boy, who did and decided she wanted to try to impress him, with her cooking prowess. She failed, miserably. Read on… As a kid, I learned how to “feed” myself & my little¬†brother, out of necessity basically. ¬†My Mom was a nurse and would often works nights … Continue reading Silver linings…

S’mores Brownies~

What’s more synonymous with Summer than S’mores? It’s the simplest of things really; marshmallows…chocolate…graham crackers all gooed up together! ¬†My kids would eat them everyday, if I let them ūüôā ¬†so they were super excited when I told them I was making these!
