Christmas Round-Up: Christmas Morning Breakfast Ideas!

Christmas Round-Up: Christmas Morning Breakfast Ideas!     I’m not sure how things go down in your household, but until just a few years ago, my Christmas morning consisted of hearing voices and waking up to faces that were a half-inch from mine (not my husband) wanting to know if we could get up and open presents…sometimes before 5 AM.  God love their little hearts, they never opened any without us though.  I walked in more than once to see {Read More}

Simple Summer Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Simple Summer Salad—Using What You Have Some people refuse to eat leftovers, but I’m a big proponent of using what you have whenever possible. One of my favorite things is when my husband grills chicken and we have some left! My favorite recipe for grilled chicken is the Brown Sugar Chicken from Stolen Moments Cooking. They call it “Angel Chicken” and I absolutely agree! I’ve cooked it in the oven, but we like it best grilled. That brown sugar gives {Read More}

Chipotle Chicken & Sweet Potato Bake

Getting food on the table doesn’t have to be hard and this Chipotle Chicken and Sweet Potato Bake is proof of that!! For years and years, I cooked for a family of five. My oldest child now has his own place and my middle child works full-time and is constantly off doing his own thing. As a result, most nights it is just me, my husband, and our daughter eating dinner at home. She is a super picky eater and {Read More}

Three Meat Cassoulet

Do you start craving soups and stews when the weather starts cooling off?  I admit that I don’t think it’s ever too hot for soup, but my husband disagrees.  Fortunately for me, the weather has been gloomy and cool and it’s a perfect time for this Three Meat Cassoulet! This recipe comes from my sweet Momma.  She got it from a friend who was taking a cooking class years ago and she just played around with it.  Momma actually shared {Read More}

Cranberry Pineapple Pork Roast

Cranberry Pineapple Pork Roast Sometimes you just want something different.  And sometimes you have to use whatever ingredients you have on hand!  That’s actually how I came up with this recipe for Cranberry Pineapple Pork Roast. I tend to buy a lot of pork butt roasts, because they are usually inexpensive and I like to use them for pulled pork BBQ.  Sometimes I get tired of BBQ though.  (I know this is shocking!!  *gasp*) I’ve made a Caribbean-style pork roast {Read More}

Lemon Drumsticks

Lemon Drumsticks I seriously love citrus fruit.  Although I can’t say I love lemons as a stand-alone dish, they are absolutely fabulous when you mix them with other things…water and sugar, pepper, soy sauce…lemon just adds a little zest to everything.  ; ) This Lemon Drumstick recipe can actually be used on any kind of chicken–legs are just less expensive and I always seem to have some in the freezer!  This is also one of those recipes that you can {Read More}
