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…

Freezer Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches

I am not really a morning person. My husband gets up really, really early for work and knows better than to try to wake me up lets me sleep. In appreciation for this, I try to make sure that he has something that he can grab for breakfast. These pancake breakfast sandwiches are his favorite! It is basically like a McGriddle from McDonald’s. Except I know what is in these. I like to make a…

Easy Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Today I am sharing one of our best family recipes! We always called this “Silly Cake” because it has no eggs and mixes up right in the pan. It is perfect if you have an egg allergy or if you ran out but still want chocolate cake. Also, having no bowl to wash is great if you don’t like washing dishes. Are you sold on this cake yet? You should be. It is awesome! Also,…

Crock Pot Corn Potato Chowder

Yeah, I wasn’t sure about that combination at first.  What happened was that I was using my divided crock pot to make baked sweet potatoes and I needed another side dish for the other half that would cook all day instead of just a few hours. Well, I found several different recipes for corn chowder and ended up mashing them together to make my own. It was surprisingly good! I figured that I better write…

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…

Baked Zucchini Gratin

I can’t believe I haven’t shared one of my FAVORITE zucchini recipes on the blog before! Baked zucchini gratin is one of the first zucchini dishes I ever tried. Yum… Slice zucchini about 1/4″ thick or less and layer in a baking pan. You can also throw some sliced onion in there, but I usually don’t cause some people (i.e. myself) are picky. This time I was using yellow zucchini (peeled- see last sentence) and…
