5 Simple Ways To Save Money In the Kitchen

  Last January I joined a great group of bloggers to bring you 5 Simple Ways. We each offered 5 simple tips to start the New Year covering various subjects like money, decorating, fashion, organizing, healthy living, kitchen life, and more. (Don’t forget to pick up the free ebook we put together from last year’s 5 Simple Ways series.) Today we are back with more […]

Saving Time Making Mashed Potatoes

Today’s kitchen tip is such an easy tip, but it will save you so much time in the kitchen on Thanksgiving Day. This is a tip I learned from a friend at church quite a few years ago. This friend makes that best mashed potatoes. She brings a large bowl of them to almost every church dinner and they are always a hit. One Sunday […]

Kitchen Shortcuts That Work For Me

I love to cook and bake. I love to make things from scratch, but the reality is that I am a busy homeschooling mom, with three kids. I live in the country, we have three dogs, and we raise hogs. I help with my husband’s office, I take kids to piano lessons, the library, doctor appointments, etc. I am busy just like everyone else. We […]

Soaking Beans In Salt Water

Last year I posted a video on how I cook dried beans in my crock pot, and I still love making them that way. It makes it so easy to cook up a large batch of beans and freeze them for use in soups and Mexican food. I recently learned a new tip for soaking my beans though that I am loving. It is really […]

Tortilla and Pancake Warmer

I have seen Tortilla Warmers in stores for years, but I did not think that I needed another kitchen gadget that would fit only one purpose. Several years ago though a friend mentioned that she used her tortilla warmer not only for tortillas, but for keeping pancakes warm. That idea had me very interested. This would make it a dual purpose tool. And since we eat […]

Tips For Summer Cooking

Summer time means hot weather for many parts of the country. Here in Oklahoma we are going on over three weeks of triple digit temperatures. I don’t know about you, but I do not like to do a lot of baking, or turning on the oven, during the summer. We do not need anything extra heating up the house. And not only does summer mean […]

Homemade Tostada Shells {And A Pantry Challenge Update}

I mentioned last week that I was joining with a few other bloggers this month on a pantry challenge. My goal was to help clean out and use up some of the food that has been sitting in my freezer and pantry for too long. This challenge has been good for me. It has made me think a little outside the box and has forced […]

What To Do If You Do Not Have Ramekins

When I post recipes like custard and other foods that require ramekins, one question I’m often asked is, “What do I do if I don’t have ramekins?” Ramekins are simply small oven safe dishes that are the perfect size for a single serving. Ramekins are used for things like custards, puddings, and many other dishes. They are inexpensive and can be found at places like […]

Simple Bowl Of Fruit

Sometimes I think we over complicate food. Many cooking shows and magazines take basic foods and add a lot of ingredients and steps. This often produces a wonderful result, but it also often makes a dish more time consuming and less healthy. Sometimes it is easiest and healthiest to stick to the basic. A simple bowl of fruit, with nothing added, is often the perfect side […]

Kitchen Disasters Into Something Special

  We all have an occasional kitchen disaster or recipe gone wrong. Today I want to encourage you to think outside the box when this happens. Many times our instinct is to throw the disaster out, but often with a little thought, a cooking disaster can be fixed and used in a different way. This is especially true with desserts. A cake that did not […]
