Sweet Chili Sauce

When I was a kid I was a terribly picky eater and I did not like chili. As I have grown up, I started to like new foods, just like my mother said I would. (I really don’t like when she is right.) One of those foods happens to be chili. I can remember coming home from school when mom had a pot of sauce simmering down on the stove and thinking it smelled horrible.…

Zucchini Carrot Casserole

Our summer vegetable garden is pretty much an overgrown weed patch. Seriously. It is the weediest it has ever been and the little that was planted got out late. It is so bad that we just got our first zucchini of the year last night. Most people I know have been drowning in zucchini for weeks, so this is embarrassing. Usually by this time of year, the kids are all sick of the many zucchini…

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.…

Hot Mustard

I have a confession: I have been holding out on you guys. This is one of my most popular recipes and I haven’t blogged about it yet. I will warn you, though. Everyone who asks me for this recipe becomes addicted and begins make multiple quadruple batches for everyone they know. This hot mustard recipe is also sweet. You can adjust the “hotness” with the choice of hot peppers used. We plant a hot pepper…

Egg Nest No-Bake Cookies

Every now and then I find that one of my blog posts has disappeared. I probably accidentally deleted it at one point when I cleaned things up around here. “Cleaning” the blog is better than cleaning the house- it actually stays that way! Anyway, the other day, I was on a crazy cooking spree with breakfast sandwiches, muffins, and cookies. Spring sports are starting up and with three of the girls on three different teams…

Baked Omelet Roll and Freezer Breakfast Sandwich Hack

I don’t like mornings.But, I do like breakfast!It just takes me awhile to wake up enough to make breakfast. One of my favorite easy breakfast dishes is baked omelet roll. It just looks fancy and the eggs are nice and fluffy since you  mix everything in the blender. I have made it for brunch showers or MOPS meetings. You can add in spinach for a nice pop of color (and healthiness). Bacon or ham would…
