Watermelon is a healthy, juicy and at this time of year, inexpensive summer treat. Here’s some awesome ideas on how to enjoy one!
I didn’t know if I would like chicken with a glazed date sauce but the picture looked so good, I’ve held on to this recipe for almost a year.
I’ve never been a huge fan of homemade lemonade, usually finding it overly sweet or too tart. The few times I have made it, the proportions were off and it tasted just ok, and not really worth the effort. But, the other day I saw a recipe in Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine (the August 2014 edition,) and […]
The first time I made this casserole it was for a get-together at my friend Ashley’s house. It was delicious and from what I hear, there was a bit of debate the next morning as to who got to enjoy the small amount of leftovers. That’s when you know it was good! If you were serving […]
The other night we had company coming over for dinner and I had planned on grilling steaks and serving them with roasted red potatoes, asparagus and a Caesar salad. As I was prepping the ingredients that afternoon I realized I didn’t have any gluten-free bread in the house to use for croutons on the salad. Now […]
All three of these recipes work very well together. The red swiss chard has a kick to it that complements the cheesy polenta and it’s all so delicious!
I typically try to focus on budget meals that are healthy but every once in a while, it’s not a bad thing to eat something that’s just plain decadent. (At least in my opinion.) Anyway, if you’re going to have a “cheat” day where you’re not tallying up the sugar, calories, and other things we […]
My husband and I had been wanting to cook ribs but they aren’t something I cook on a regular basis and I didn’t have a recipe on hand that I wanted to use. Then my husband found this recipe called “The Best Ever Barbecued Ribs,” from Bon Appetit magazine, and since it looked easy and […]
You will not believe how easy and great tasting this homemade pizza crust and sauce are! It tastes like the real deal, and it costs so little to feed your whole family!
These fun deviled “chick” eggs are fun and simple to make, using your basic deviled egg recipe, cutting it a bit different from a regular deviled egg, and only requires some carrot and capers (or black olives.) They are so cute, they might just have your little ones who don’t like yolk, want to […]
When I think of delicious, creamy soups, carrot soup is not one that immediately comes to mind…until I made this. I found this Roasted Carrot Soup recipe in April’s issue of Good Housekeeping and thought it looked good and would be a reasonably priced soup, which it was. When I told my husband I was […]
This chicken dish is so easy….it marinates overnight which allows for all the margarita flavors to really infuse the chicken with great flavors and it’s juicy. The tabbouleh is made with healthy bulgur wheat and lots of fresh veggies and herbs.
There are certain snack foods I just can’t keep in the house because I have limited self-control and will eat the entire package. CHEEZ-IT crackers are one of those foods. A couple of weeks ago they were on sale so I bought a box and within a couple of days, I had eaten every single […]
This Southern fare is fairly healthy…..The catfish has a crunchy coating with a flaky inside and the collard greens are delicious! Believe me, if you’ve never tasted collard greens, this is the recipe to try. And if you have had them before and didn’t like them, give them one more taste with this….so good! Both recipes are quick and easy to prepare and the entire meal (with corn on the cob) comes in at $8.97 for a family of four.
Most food labels will let you know if you should refrigerate that item or not but what about produce? Or what if you could make an ingredient last twice or even three times longer if you simply stored it in the fridge? Here’s a list of items that should either always be kept in the refrigerator […]
I was so excited to make this lime tart recipe that I ran across in my latest Good Housekeeping magazine (April 2017) because it looked delicious and it was gluten-free. I have never been that great of a baker and since being diagnosed with celiac disease I certainly haven’t been that creative when it comes […]
This recipe is elegant, easy and inexpensive…how much better can it get? Plus, the video features a very special guest: Executive Chef of the Cliff House at Pikes Peak, Scott Savage!
I’m not a mixed drink kind of girl, but these Shimmering Shamrock and Lucky Leprechaun drinks were delicious!
I found and made this delicious hearty Irish Beef Stew last year for the first time and it’s oh so good!
This Irish Bread Pudding is perfect for serving on St. Patrick’s Day and it’s so easy, even a “non-baker” like me can whip it together. This makes enough for 12 servings which is perfect for a large celebration, or lots of leftovers.
PLUS, an easy recipe to make Irish Coffee, perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or really, any day!
