Crockpot Applesauce

I have read on several sites about cooking applesauce in the crockpot. They all said ahow good and easy it was. I have had a lot of apples this year, so I decided to give it a try. I took the tips from several recipes and came up with my own. It is not an exact recipe. You can vary it depending on how sweet […]

Yogurt Fruit Salad

This is a quick and easy fruit salad to put together. It is just fruit and yogurt. That is all, but it is really good and my kids love it. I just use whatever fruit I have. Apples, bananas, peaches, etc., even canned fruit works well. I then stir in whatever yogurt I have. Vanilla or fruit flavored works well, but I think vanilla is […]

Oven Potatoes

I do not buy frozen french fries or tator tots very often. Now, that we are trying to stay away from packaged and processed foods, I doubt I will buying them at all. I have been making a lot of home made oven fries though. When I made oven fries or potatoes I would cut the potatoes up into small cubes and toss them with […]

Cole Slaw

I posted recently about how my husband dislikes mayonnaise. So, today I thought I would post the coleslaw recipe that he likes best. He will eat regular coleslaw, but we really prefers one with a less mayonnaise taste. But first, is coleslaw another one of those regional things? I grew up in OR and you see coleslaw once in awhile, but not very often. Here […]

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

This is a great Alfredo Sauce. It is so quick and easy and the texture always turns out right. The cream cheese in this gives it the perfect texture. I also like it because most alfredos call for cream. I don’t usually keep cream on hand but I do usually have cream cheese on hand to use in desserts and frostings. I use this as […]

Potato Salad

My husband does not like mayonnaise. He says that he does not want to eat spoonfuls of fat. I on the other hand could eat mayonnaise on just about anything, sandwiches, potato salad, coleslaw, etc. As far as I am concerned mayonnaise is what makes these items so good. My husband though only eats mustard on sandwiches and really does not like potato salad and […]

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 […]

Greek Pasta Salad

Greek Pasta Salad is a quick and easy lunch or dinner perfect for spring and summer. Pasta salads make great summertime dinners. They are easy side dishes, but when you add meat they can also be a simple main dish lunch or dinner. I have tried a lot of them and have not been very impressed. My husband is not a fan of mayonnaise. So […]

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

In trying to eat healthier one of the things I have been doing is making my own salad dressings. I have found several we liked, but nothing that really stood out. Especially when it came to a homemade ranch style dressing. That was until last week. Several weeks ago I found at the library the book “How To Cook Everything Vegetarian” By Mark Bittman. I […]

Jasmine Rice

I found a new way to cook rice. Well, not new but new to me. I saw a recipe on Martha Stewart where they cooked Jasmine Rice in coconut milk (not cream of coconut but coconut milk). It sounded like it would be very good. I did an Internet search to find a recipe. I found this one at 101 cookbooks. I think that one […]
