fresh grapefruit in a jar

— April 10, 2017

One of my favorite treats is purchasing a jar of grapefruit. It is so tender and sweet, and I love to buy the jar with three different colors of grapefruit if I can find it. You eat with your eyes ya know. But that jarred treat also comes with a price tag. I can’t remember the…


brown sugar fried sweet potatoes

— April 05, 2017

My husband will be glad that he missed out on this for lunch because this is not lunch food in his eyes. But when I looked in the fridge to see what I should make myself for lunch today, a baked sweet potato waved at me. Ahhh…I knew what was for lunch. Fried…


easy flavored coffee creamer

— April 02, 2017

I am still trying to perfect my homemade coffee creamer. It’s a tricky balance of creaminess to sweetness and flavor and I don’t have it balanced yet. The other day my mind decided to cheat a bit and I am glad it did. This is an easy way to skip some of the…

my pinewood derby potluck “hot dish”

— March 01, 2017

We recently had our first adventure with the Boy Scout’s Pinewood Derby Race. I am convinced that the Pinewood Derby is more for the dads than for the kids. Especially the younger kids. I suppose most teenagers could handle the intricacies needed to build a pinewood derby car. My 8-year old Wolf? Not so much….

Happy New Year! Happy National Spaghetti Day! I love January and the freshness of a new year before me with all of the promises I can dream up. A full clean slate before me is so exciting and so precious. (I also love spaghetti…) Have you made any promises to yourself or someone…


italian style meatballs

— June 16, 2016

Meatballs. Homemade meatballs. There is nothing like them. Hot, cold, sauced, naked, spiced, simple, trendy, big or little, there is nothing like a homemade meatball. They are a super easy food to whip up ahead of time and freeze for a night when you need a good meal, fast. You can also change…


cheeseburger salad

Bear with me. Or is it bare with me. It’s early in the morning while I am writing and I forgot which choice of spelling to use, which…I find to be quite funny. Or awkward. So, I Googled it and looked up the difference. There is a significant difference, which is even funnier….

This is a very, very, very, very, very exciting post for me! (dork alert) Yes, the burger and wedge salad for dinner were “that good” but more than that, it is the first foodie post that I am doing using my new Photoshop program! Woo-hoo people!! I have a super long way to…


BBQ Spice Rub Burgers

— February 22, 2016

What’s in your spice cabinet? Mine is pretty full because I have a love affair with the Milwaukee Spice House and they are pretty much a safe bet for me for any gifting moment that comes up and they are always on my wish list. But…despite all of those fabulous spices, I had…


banana citrus salad

— February 19, 2016

Bananas are tricky business in our house of 5. Some like them, some don’t and some do…kinda. I am one of the “kinda” banana lovin’ folks in my house, but this Banana Citrus Salad is one way that I will always eat my bananas. The tartness and texture of the mandarin oranges and…
