Green Beans and Tomatoes

When I first moved to Oklahoma I realized that many people cooked their vegetable way different than I was used to. I am not sure if it is just a regional thing or not, but many people here cook their vegetables to death. I think it may actually be just an older way to cook them, not so much a regional thing. I know they […]

Creamy Avocado Soup

Over the last few weeks my menu plan has not gone quite as planned. I blame it on the heat wave that Oklahoma has been having. There is something about multiple days where the temperature is over 110 that can make a person not want to cook. Or really do anything for that matter. And if you follow me on Facebook you know that our air […]

Chipotle Pepper Salad Dressing

I don’t know about you, but we eat a lot of salad this time of year. They are not only healthy, they are quick and easy to make. But having salad so often can become boring. We tend to make them the same way over and over. One easy way to change up a salad though is the dressing. And when it comes to homemade […]

Broccoli Bacon Salad

I cannot believe that I have not shared my Broccoli Bacon Salad recipe with all of you. I have been making this salad for years and my family loves it. When I went to make this salad recently I searched my site for the recipe and realized that I have never shared this recipe with you. Today I am going to fix that, because you […]

Grilled Vegetables With Balsamic Vinegar

  Grilled vegetables are one of my kids favorite ways to eat vegetables. It is so easy to cut up a few vegetables and place them on grill and if it gets my kids to eat more vegetables I am all for it fixing them that way. One of my favorite ways to fix grilled vegetables is to marinate them. I often use a store […]

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Last week when I posted about buying fingerling potatoes several of you asked how I cooked them. Well, I have cooked them many ways, but today I wanted to share my favorite way to cook fingerling potatoes. And this is actually one of my favorite ways to cook almost any potato. I like them simply roasted with a just a little oil and a little bit […]

Fingerling Potatoes and Keeping Food Interesting

One of the easiest ways to keep food interesting and fun is to change it up every once in a while. Most families eat a lot of potatoes, but instead of buying the exact same potatoes every time, buy something a little different once in a while. I love potatoes, but I get tired of the same variety all the time. I like to occasionally buy something […]

Slow Cooked Orange Glazed Carrots

I love using my slow cooker. I use if for everything from breakfast and dinner to side dishes and desserts. It is one of the most used appliances in my kitchen and I own several of them. Today’s recipe is for slow cooked glazed carrots. I really enjoy the orange flavor in this dish. It gives the carrots a sweetness without being overly sweet. Now […]

Mashed Potato Casserole

I love potatoes. I might have mentioned that once or twice before, but I really do love them. They are so versatile. You can eat them roasted, mashed, as a salad, as a main dish, twice baked, and even a soup. You can use them in so many different ways. Today, I want to talk about potato casseroles. Over the years I have tried many recipes […]

Cauliflower Cheese Bake

I love cauliflower, but the rest of my family has mixed feelings about it. I recently realized that this may be partly due to how I usually cook it. The easiest, and probably healthiest, way to serve cauliflower is either raw or steamed, and those are the two ways I usually fix it. As good as raw and steamed are, they are a bit boring. […]
