Kitchen Monki: Your Ultimate Cooking Utensil

I love to cook, honestly, there’s very little that I enjoy more than cooking (Don’t believe me?  Listen to my Monday Mingle vlog).    A while back I started writing my favorite recipes on recipe cards and storing them in a wooden storage box, which worked really well until I started using the recipe cards.

I am happy to report that my experiment with menu planning went really well! For the most part, I stuck to the menu as stated (you can see pictures of the meals here). The only two times I veered off course were Monday (forgot to make the steamed broccoli but no one even noticed, they [...]

Mom, What’s for Dinner?

That’s the first thing my kids ask me when they walk through the door at the end of a long school day. Sometimes they even ask me that question as I’m driving them to the bus stop in the morning. I used to just mutter something along the lines of not knowing and not caring. [...]

Meatloaf Mice

On Wednesday afternoon, I received an email from my husband asking if I could come up with something to cook for a Halloween themed party he was having at work. Hmmmm….interesting request, especially since I hate Halloween (chalk it up to my upbringing, those who know my parents understand). Anyway, I sat up all night [...]

Menu Plan Monday

Ok, I know they’re goofy but I think memes are fun and they provide friends and family with a chance to learn something new about me, this is why I participate in them just about every chance I get (whether I’m invited or not). One of the reasons the Menu Plan Monday meme caught my [...]

On the Table

My husband did not marry me for my cooking skills, ’cause when we first got married I couldn’t cook. No, you don’t understand, I lived in my apartment for six months before I even bothered to turn on the stove. I lived down the street from Popeyes and I had a crawfish shack around the [...]
