New Favorite Breakfast

Note: If you have read my blog for long you will recognize this post. I had planned on posting a new recipe for Slow Cooking Thursday but do not have time to post it. I decided instead to repost one of my favorite crockpot meals, grits for breakfast. I hope you enjoy. For more great crockpot recipes see Slow Cooking Thursday. I am a northern […]

A New Dog

This post has nothing to do with food or the kitchen, sorry. We got a new dog over the weekend. He is the sweetest little puppy. My kids named him Roy. We already had two dogs. Meet Dale and Boomer. Dale is the black and tan one. Boomer is the large black lab mixed with something dog. Boomer and Dale are great dogs. Our kids […]

Freezer French Toast

I will start by saying this recipe is NOT healthy and I do not fix it often. It is a treat for my family. It makes a good holiday meal since it can be made ahead of time. I recently made it when we had company. It works great for a breakfast for company because it can be made a head of time and frozen. […]

Gazpacho

I finally have a healthy recipe to post. We have a lot of tomatoes and cucumbers from our garden so I am trying to find ways of using them all up. Last week I made gazpacho. I have had gazpacho before but have never made it myself. I guess I always thought it was hard. Well, I was wrong, it is very easy. My whole […]

Shop Local Farms

My frugal tip for today is to try to buy local in season produce. I try to buy as much local fruit and vegetables as I can. I do not have a CSA near me, so that is not an option. I do however have several farms and orchard near where I live. There are several blueberry and blackberry farms that offer both u-pick and […]

Fudge Cake Brownies

I found this recipe in a Southern Living Magazine quite a few years ago. It is one of my favorite brownies to make. I have doubled it and used a 9×13 pan, just cook them a few minutes longer. My favorite way to fix these is to leave off the powdered sugar and place a few flavored chocolate chips on them. About 5 minutes before […]

Easy Lemon Pie

I made this pie to take to a church dinner on Sunday. It is not the healthiest pie recipe but it is really easy and good. My mom gave me this recipe a few years ago. I think she found it in a magazine a long time ago and she has made it many times since then. It makes a great summertime dessert. For more […]

Buying In Bulk

I like to buy items in bulk. It is not cheaper on all things but on some things it is quite a savings. For example we like homemade pizza. Pepperoni is my husband favorite type of pizza. Pepperoni is expensive and not an item I see on sale very often. Yes, we could do without pepperoni, but I like to try to fit items my […]

Oregon Foods

One of the things I like about visiting OR during the summer is all the fresh berries and fruit. This year was no exception. We had a bunch of fruit while I was there. On the drive to my parent’s house are several road side fruit stands. We stopped several times to buy some things. We had some strawberries, they were good, but you could […]

Parmesan Orzo

I have seen several different recipes lately for Orzo with Parmesan. I decided to fix it for a side dish, since I had not made it in a long time. I really enjoy orzo. The first time I ever had it was at my in laws house. It was when my husband and I were dating. I really enjoyed the version my mother in law […]
