Banana Bread with Cranberry Trail Mix Crust {On the Table}

My kids love bananas. In fact, they love them so much that bananas rarely last long enough for me to make banana bread. So on those rare occasions when the bananas do start to get overly ripe, I jump at the chance to put some bread in the oven. Only this time I didn’t have [...]

Have you ever wanted to eat something so badly that you thought about it all day long? That’s how I was the other night. I wanted Shrimp and Grits with Fried Chicken. Desperately.

Yummy Spoon Bread {On the Table}

I’m not a big baker. It’s a time thing. But i do love myself some bread. And I do I love to cook. I especially love to try new recipes. This hasn’t always been true, when the hubs and I first got married, I couldn’t boil water. Not kidding. Could not boil water. At all. [...]

Brown Boots and a Recipe {Shoe Style Saturday}

Happy Saturday! Do you have plans for this weekend? So far, I got nothin’. I may talk the hubs into visiting some more antique shops downtown. We’ve been doing that a lot lately.

Tortellini with Squash {Meatless Monday}

Now, I’m not even gonna pretend that I’m one of those people who minces my own garlic and grates my own Parmesan. I don’t. I use jarred garlic that’s already been minced and I use a lot of it. I’m also not very particular about the measurements. Dump and stir is the only way to [...]

Meatless Monday: Crockpot 4 Bean Chili with Rice

Soooo, the family survived the first round of Meatless Monday!  I’m so incredibly proud of them.  I fully expected a lot of grumbling and sneaking of meat but the kids were all over that Spinach, Tomato and Cheese Tortellini (click here for the recipe).  In the interest full disclosure, the hubs was out of town, [...]

Meatless Monday: Spinach, Tomato and Cheese Tortellini

Remember a while back I said that the family and I were going to try going meatless on Monday once we settled into our new environs?  Yeah, well, I’d totally forgotten about it too until I ran across a recipe for Spinach, Tomato and Cheese Tortellini in this month’s All You magazine. The recipe was [...]

Fruity Bread Pudding Recipe

A few weeks back I mentioned that my children surprised me by loving bread pudding.  In fact, Miss 16 sent me a text requesting the bread pudding instead of cake for her birthday.  Anyway since my post, I’ve been getting requests for the recipe.  Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to make another one so [...]
