Spaghetti with Simple Tomato Sauce {Cooking Through My Collection}

Spaghetti with Simple Tomato Sauce_

Many recipes are complicated and time consuming to make, but recipes don’t have to be that way. Often times I think Americans complicate food. Maybe that is too generalized of a statement, but I really do think we try too hard sometimes when it comes to cooking. A good meal does not have to be gourmet or contain twenty ingredients. Simple food made with simple […]

Creamy Hot Fudge Sauce

What is not to like about hot fudge sauce? Especially during the summer and all the triple digit weather that some of us have been experiencing. I have several different hot fudge sauces that I make, but this recipe adapted from Carnation Evaporate Milk is a favorite of ours. Pour it over a bowl of ice cream and you have a wonderful summertime treat.

Cream Soups: Good or Bad?

Canned cream of whatever soups are not a subject I would normally write about, but an article in our newspaper this morning, and a few of your comments yesterday on my Facebook page, got me thinking about them. I am not normally a newspaper reader, but my husband is, so we get the daily newspaper. As I was putting today’s newspaper in the recycle pile, […]

Homemade fruit sauces are so easy to make. They are very versatile and can be used on anything from pancakes, waffles, and french toast, to desserts like my mom’s easy cheesecake or the white chocolate cheesecake pictured above.  ( The recipe for the white chocolate cheesecake will be posted soon. It was one of the best cheesecakes that I have ever made) I love to make homemade […]

Homemade Cranberry Sauce

I don’t know about you, but I grew up eating the cranberry sauce from a can. You know the kind where you can see the lines from the can indented in it. Yes, that is the cranberry sauce that made an appearance at our Thanksgiving table every year. Because of this I grew up thinking that I did not like cranberry sauce, but really it […]

Hot Sauce

This is our hot sauce collection. Well, I should say this is my husband’s hot sauce collection. Can you tell he likes his food spicy? Not only does he like his food spicy, he likes the right sauce for the right food, and I have to say I agree with him on this one. Chinese hot sauce makes all the difference in Asian cooking. Tabasco […]

By now most of you probably know that my husband and family loves peanut butter. We love it in peanut butter pie and also in peanut butter baked oatmeal, but one of my kids favorite ways to eat peanut butter is on pancakes and waffles. When I came across this recipe for peanut butter pancake syrup in an old quick cooking magazine, I knew my […]
