Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Bake

I love broccoli and cauliflower together and I think this is a nice side dish that everyone can enjoy on Thanksgiving, even those picky eaters who think they don’t like veggies! This recipe is from the Oct/Nov issue of Healthy Cooking by Taste of Home magazine which you should be able to find on stands still. I honestly didn’t know until last week that Taste of Home even offered a … Continue Reading →
Betty Crocker’s Instant Mashed Potatoes

Betty Crocker’s Instant Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are my favorite food, they have been for as long as I can remember. My Grandma H made the best mashed potatoes in the world. When I started dating Hubby I ate dinner at his parents house a lot and his mom makes some awesome mashed potatoes too. Once I was married I tried to make them but for some reason they always sucked – yes it’s true … Continue Reading →

Memorial Day BBQ – Yum! and Packet Potatoes for the Grill Recipe

Memorial Day BBQ – Yum! and Packet Potatoes for the Grill Recipe

Hubby grilled today and it was divine, as usual. I really wish you all could taste his BBQ porksteaks. They are just incredible! I am not sure exactly what he does to them and he makes his own sauce. He said he is not sharing the recipe though LOL. As good as it all is, it was not the healthiest of meals. I told Hubby and T we would have … Continue Reading →
Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Grilled Pineapple Salsa

The picture does not do it justice, in real life it is more bright and colorful. On top of looking good, it tastes yummy! Very fresh and light with just enough sweetness and peppery heat. This is another of our family favorite recipes from Cooking Light magazine. The full recipe is Adobo-Marinated Pork Tenderloin with Grilled Pineapple Salsa. We generally serve this with grilled sweet potatoes with a lime-cilantro vinaigrette … Continue Reading →

Schnitzel and Spaetzle Dinner

Schnitzel and Spaetzle Dinner

Tonight was my first attempt at a meal with a German flair. I decided on schnitzel and spaetzle – sounds fairly German to me! I saw Guy from Guy’s Big Bite do an episode on this so that was where I started. He calls his schnitzel recipe Jagerschnitzel and Bacon Mushroom Gravy. For the most part I followed along the way the recipe was written, a bit unusual for me, … Continue Reading →
