Pumpkin Cakes

Pumpkin Cakes

These are too cute. Baking pans that make pumpkins! They have both big pumpkin and little pumpkin sizes. My mom always has a big Halloween party each year, maybe I will get one of these molds and make a spooky Jack-o-Lantern cake to take to the party. These would be a great alternative to pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving also. You … Continue Reading →
Thrifty Thursday – Save on Meat

Thrifty Thursday – Save on Meat

It’s Thrifty Thursday again! This week I’m saving on meat. Sorry to the vegetarians out there, but my family is still into meat. Believe it or not my tip is to find a local butcher shop! They are much harder to come by these days. When I was growing up we went to the butcher shop all the time, but … Continue Reading →
Get Back to the Table

Get Back to the Table

Does your family eat dinner together? We do almost always at our house. This is a really big priority that hubby and I have always both agreed on. I hope when my son has his own family he will continue with this as well. We have a lot of great conversations during dinner. Some are serious, some are fun, it … Continue Reading →
Thrifty Thursday – Coupons for Restaurants

Thrifty Thursday – Coupons for Restaurants

Thrifty Jinxy has started a Thrifty Thursday meme. I thought I would give it a try. I have to post something “thrifty”. My thrifty thing for this Thursday (hmm a tongue twister LOL) is to sign up for the newsletter online for any restaurant you visit. You get coupons this way! While we shouldn’t eat out so much to save … Continue Reading →
Hubby’s Sugared Chicken – Oops!

Hubby’s Sugared Chicken – Oops!

Have to share a story about my hubby with everyone. I am lucky enough to work here from home and set my own time schedule for working even. The last few days I had been busy doing other things so I decided that today, Sunday, I would get caught up on my work. Hubby was nice enough to say he … Continue Reading →
Grilled White Ruffy

Grilled White Ruffy

I thought I would share a recipe today because it was yummy! One of our newer finds at the fish/seafood counter at my local grocery store is White Ruffy (also called Swai or Basa). It is a very mild fish and very versatile. I’ve cooked it in several different ways the past several weeks, but today I had hubby throw … Continue Reading →

Unlimited Recipes Online

I thought I would start on ongoing post about all the great places to find recipes online. We are constantly trying new things at our house, usually at least 2 new dinner recipes per week if not more. Most I find online. Some are from TV shows, but of course, I go online to their website to find the printable … Continue Reading →
Nine West Knifeworks

Nine West Knifeworks

Ok, I’ve seen these knives on a few different blogs now. They are very cool! Make sure to go take a look around on Nine West Knifeworks to see the different styles. I really like the Phoenix models with Granite handles, but I also love those beautiful Fusionwood handle color, especially the Ruby, Peacock, Flamenco, Fourth of July, and Jessica. Continue Reading →
Qdoba Mexican Grill

Qdoba Mexican Grill

Today my son and I went to Qdoba Mexican Grill for lunch. We just happened to stumble upon it doing errands out of our normal stomping grounds. I had been hearing about this place for a while and wanted to try it but hadn’t seen any in our own city. I’m awfully glad we stumbled upon it today – it’s … Continue Reading →
