Pie Crust and Public Radio Kitchen

A few months ago I did a post on how to make pie crust.  Today, that post was featured on Public Radio Kitchen.  They have several links on perfecting pie crusts and my pie crust post is one of them. The best part is it that my link is right next to the Smitten Kitchen and Simply Recipes links.  Those are two of the biggest food bloggers out there […]

How I Store My Artisan Bread In Five Bread Dough

I love the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day cookbook. I know I have said that several times before, but I really do use this bread a lot. I think this dough is so easy, yet so versatile. It is so nice to know that I have dough waiting in the refrigerator when I need it.  By the way the authors of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes […]

Cookies and Cream Mini Cheescakes

This is a Martha Stewart recipe. I love her recipes and the minute I saw this one I knew it would be no exception. I love cookies and cream, so to combine it with a cheesecake sounded like a great idea. This recipe is easy because you are making mini cheesecakes. My 9 year old daughter and I worked on these one Saturday afternoon and we had lots of fun […]

Bagel Breakfast Sandwich

This is not a recipe exactly. This is more of a brief explanation of a meal my family enjoys for breakfast, lunch, or even for dinner, on days like today. We really are having these for dinner tonight.  I am really behind on housework after being sick last week and I still have two sick kids. Today I had about 5 loads of laundry to do, floors to clean, clutter […]

Menu Plan

Last week I planned to make quite a few new recipes and I only made two of them.  Life happened,  I got sick, my daughter got sick , then everyone else got sick. We also had a few doctors appointments to go to. With all that I was not really in the cooking mood. So, I rearranged things and made some meals that were easier to put together. Sometimes […]

Fruit Fly/Gnat Trap

This is not a recipe for food, but a recipe to deal with something I think we have all had a problem with at one time or another, fruit flies/gnats. Aren’t they awful?  I can’t stand them and the last couple of  weeks I have had a bad case of them.  I could not figure out where they were coming from and they were driving me […]

Fall

Warning, this is one of those non-food posts that I occasionally do. I wanted to take a brief break from food posting to talk about fall. I love fall. It is my favorite time of year in Oklahoma, and this year we are having some real fall weather. Some years it is still quite warm in September, but this year has been great. We have […]

Olive Garden Style Salad Dressing

My sister was recently telling me about a salad dressing recipe that she had made and really enjoyed.  She had found it in the food network magazine. She also told me that she really likes that magazine. I think it is becoming one of her favorite cooking magazines. She gave me several other recipes that she has made from the magazine that I look forward to making […]

Apple Muffins

This recipe comes from my sister Flora.  It makes a perfect fall muffin.  We love these for breakfast, but they also make a great afternoon snack for the kids. I like that fact that these have both apples and applesauce in them. It gives them a really nice apple flavor and also makes them very moist. I made these this last Sunday evening and they were gone […]

Panini Grill

When I posted about my tuna panini I received a question about panini grills, so I decided it was a good time to post my thoughts on it and why it works for me. Quite a few years ago my mother in law gave me a George Foreman grill. I used it quite a bit, but after only a short time the non-stick coating wore off. I […]
