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 […]

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 […]

Banana Waffles

If your house is anything like mine I am guessing that you often have an over ripe banana or two sitting on the counter. I have one daughter who love bananas and will eat hers when they look so bad that no one else will touch them. However, the rest the family prefers our bananas a bit on the green side, so we like to […]

Fruit Frappe

I have a love hate relationship with canned peaches and it is all my mom’s fault. Sorry mom, but you spoiled me. You see growing up my mom canned peaches. We would go to the orchard each year for peaches and she would spend days canning peaches so that we would have peaches through out the winter. I loved these canned peaches. They were so […]

Fresh Pineapple

Fresh pineapple is so good. I did not realize how good fresh pineapple was until I was an adult. Growing up I never remember eating fresh pineapple. We always ate canned pineapple. It was cheap and readily available, so that is what we ate. I am not sure exactly when I had my first fresh pineapple, but once I had it, canned pineapple was never the […]

Strawberry Mousse Trifle

As soon as I tasted my strawberry mousse pudding, I knew it would work perfectly for a trifle. Last week I needed a dessert to send to my husband’s office for their staff meeting. I knew right away that a strawberry trifle would be a perfect dessert to make. Everyone loved this. I will admit that I did not eat any because it is full […]

Lemon Fruit Salad

Fruit salad, I have always wondered if it is a side dish or a dessert. It seems like some people consider it one and some the other. But let’s leave that debate for another post and talk about the reasons I love fruit salad. Fruit salads are great because they are easy and always popular. Kids always enjoy them and they are an easy dish […]

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

This is a recipe that my mom made all the time when I was growing up. We always called it peach cobbler. It was not until I was married and had other versions of this dessert, that I realized it is really a version of the dump cake that many people make. This dessert is easy and frugal, yet really good. It is one of […]

Apple Muffins

This is another recipe that I have been making for years. The recipe came from my sister and makes a perfect fall muffin. We love these for breakfast, but they also make a great afternoon snack for the kids. I like that these have both apples and applesauce in them. It gives them a great apple flavor. I haven’t made these in awhile and decided […]
