Cheeseburger Soup

A few years ago a friend and I traveled to Lancaster for a quilt show. It was such a blessing for me to be able to get away for a few days! It is the only time I have been able to do something like that and, as much as I missed my kids, I really enjoyed the break from being needed all the time. We stopped at a little Amish diner for lunch when…

Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast Roll-Ups

Since we had a snow day, I decided to make a nice breakfast for the kids. I am not so great at early mornings (see my freezer breakfast solution HERE) but I can handle a nice, late breakfast on a relaxing day at home once in awhile. These are one of my kids’ favorites. I always have an assortment of jelly (see HERE) so I can make a variety of them with very little effort.…

Summertime Pinterest Recipes ~ Tested and Approved

I have been really enjoying trying out new recipes with the bountiful summer harvest! The past few weeks, I have discovered some REALLY good ones! Zucchini ricotta galette– oh, that just sounds fancy! It looks as pretty as its name, doesn’t it? The crust is flaky and wonderful, with just a hint of tartness. The filling and zucchini/summer squash are OK, but the crust is what really makes this dish. I pinned this roasted veggie…

Eggplant Parmesan (Freezer Cooking)

One of the best ways to save money (and have better food) is to preserve fresh vegetables when they are in season.  I love to have eggplant already breaded and frozen for a fast, easy meal in the winter.  If you don’t have a garden giving you lots of lovely, purple eggplants you can pick some up for cheap while they are in season at a local farmer’s market.  Out of two very large eggplants,…

Pretzel Buns

When I am feeling particularly ambitious, the kids and I make homemade soft pretzels.  They like playing with the dough to make different shapes and sometimes we use them as buns.  This is a recipe meant to be like those pretzels you get at the mall.  They are awesome!  Here is how we make them… Sprinkle yeast onto the warm water.  (Ooooh… fascinating!) Stir to dissolve. Add brown sugar and mix that up, too.  Then add the salt and…

Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is something that my mom made quite a bit when we were growing up.  It is a great way to use up bread that is not so fresh, or those icky end pieces. You can serve it warm or cold, and it is also perfect for breakfast or a dessert. Bread Pudding 6 eggs 1 cup sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 2 cups milk 8 slices of bread spreadable margarine or butter cinnamon Start…

Chicken and Waffles

Chicken and waffles is a very common meal around these parts. I can remember the first time I met someone who was not a “local” and had never had chicken and waffles. I was shocked and horrified! I thought everyone ate chicken and waffles. It is really just good, homemade waffles topped with cooked chicken and gravy. You can figure out how to make the cooked chicken and gravy on your own, but here is my…

Cinnamon Rolls From SCRATCH!

Please do not lick your computer screen. I am not responsible for any dust on your tongue. I get requests to make these delicious cinnamon rolls pretty often, but never requests for the recipe! I think it is too intimidating, but, REALLY, they are NOT hard to make! I got the recipe from an Amish cookbook, so a full batch makes 5 dozen. I am giving you the half batch recipe and much clearer directions…
