Summer is almost here!! I don’t know about you, but I always start craving watermelon once the temperatures begin to rise. I love having it cut up in my fridge, ready to serve as a snack for my kiddos or myself. It’s a great healthy, hydrating snack. I like to cut watermelon into bite-sized pieces to have less mess (no more drippy wedges of watermelon). Keep reading to find out how I cut up an entire watermelon easily!
One of the meals that I made for meal sharing this week was cauliflower chowder. I don’t always follow a recipe-just like my grandmother MomMom. I remember calling her for a recipe and she would say something like, “Put a spoonful of this and a pinch of that.” These directions were always followed by my question, “What size spoon? How much of a pinch?” I didn’t understand how she cooked like that, but over the years, I have learned to just season to taste.Read More »
I don’t know about you, but I always find that vegetables taste better when roasted. Adding garlic and Parmesan doesn’t hurt either! Today, I’m bringing you a quick and easy recipe for brussel sprouts. Yes, brussel sprouts! So many people think they don’t like these little green mini-cabbages, but it’s usually because they’ve eaten them boiled or steamed, and no offense, I don’t like them cooked that way either. However, I absolutely love them cooked this way, as does my husband!Read More »

Does it feel like Fall yet where you live? Any hint of a slight cool breeze here in South Louisiana and we begin to cook for Fall since it doesn’t always get very cold here. Ha-ha. Some of my family’s favorites for the Fall weather are gumbo, vegetable beef soup, and homemade chili. We serve the chili with corn chips or crackers and sometimes a little cheese. It’s always a hit at the dinner table. The best part about it? Only a small amount of prep is needed. Here’s the recipe (which I learned from my husband):Read More »
I’ve always loved mint and dark chocolate together. My husband, on the other hand, does not. (That’s okay, that simply leaves all the mint chocolate chip ice cream in the freezer for me. 😉 Well, at least until we had kids… haha).Read More »
This is post nine in the series that started with the crockpot whole chicken. Just finding out about this great series? Start here to catch up.
I haven’t added a new recipe to this series in a while, but I had a craving for nachos this week and I thought it would fit perfectly as one of the recipes here! If you’re a regular reader, you know that I’m all about using what you have, so my pictures are missing some of the ingredients listed below. The recipe is the “ideal situation.” My pictures are the reality of what I had in the house that day, without making a trip to the grocery store, since this was not on the menu plan for this week. (I shop weekly for the most part, to help stick to the budget)Read More »
