It was Thanksgiving Day and all of my homemade pumpkin soup and pumpkin puree I had so tirelessly prepped during the week and froze cracked, broke, and poured into my tiny freezer. I was preparing dinner entirely by myself for the first time since Terry was volunteering at the homeless shelter, so fter a few choice words on my list of horrible experiences involving pretty much all of my recent experiences with Ball quart jars, I was forced to resort to the quick and easy…

Throughout the entire month of October, Eamon had been "collecting" pumpkins and lining them up in sweet little spots throughout the house, occasionally trying to roll the largest one through the rest in an effort to reenact Linus and Lucy picking their carving pumpkin at the beginning of "The Great Pumpkin" Charlie Brown special. There were large ones, small ones, white ones,…

I was on the hunt this weekend for a spinach soup that was hearty but not creamy and not full of noodles or other grain. We have been trying to cut back on the grain intake again and I had already had my share of creamy soups during the week (lots of pumpkin and creamy potato leek). Plus, we had purchased a big bag of spinach at the market last Sunday and it…
It's hard to believe that I have been canning now for two years. I began water bath canning as a way to teach myself to be more self reliant and to learn the art form of preservation that decades ago was the only way to keep our families nourished during the winter months. It wasn't really until the time of the second World War that tin canned good became the way of life. Form then on women were encouraged to purchase canned vegetables and meats from the ever growing grocery…

ABC's hit television series "Once Upon a Time" is returning tonight! Tell me in the comments who is ready for Season 5. My biggest excitement this season is Emma Swan and her new role as "The Dark One". Will she be able to fight the forces of evil that have always seemed to reside in her? I'm sure we will soon find out just how bad Emma can (or cannot) be.
To celebrate tonight's season five premiere, I have created a "Once Upon a Time"…Continue
One of the quickest healthiest breakfasts you can throw together. A dish of lovely creamy porridge. You can either do it the proper way in a pan and simmer and stir, you can make it in minutes in the microwave or you can go instant with a dish of Ready brek. Whichever way you choose it’s…Continue

I frequently find it difficult to come up with dinner ideas. I get so bored having the same meals over and over. Brandon doesn’t very often have input on dinner, so he is of very little help. To my surprise he came to me the other day and said….
Brandon: Hey mom, I really wished we could have those noodles we had in Colorado with Dad at that one…Continue

Did someone say birthday cake? And in a muffin for breakfast? Yes please!
I was excited to read one of the recent Rachael Ray Magazine’s to find a handful of fun muffin recipes that I had never thought of before. To me, when I think muffin, I am stuck on the classic blueberry, raspberry, pecan…you get it. We have tried a zucchini muffin before for the kids in trying to “sneak in” the veggies. I was impressed how well that turned out. Then this weekend, we gave birthday cake muffins…Continue

This picture says it all. These cream puffs are heavenly! Whenever I serve them to my guests, conversations cease and all you hear are “ooohs” and “aaahs”. As my twelve-year-old grandson would say: “These are good enough to make a grown man cry.” …Continue

This was exciting! I won the FAGOR Electric Multicooker a few months ago and couldn't wait to try it. I cook chicken breasts weekly and was tired of the normal curry, stew or BBQ, I wanted something American! The finished product turned out really good, but I did have to make a few tweaks to suit…Continue
