Southwest Cheesecake

Life As Mom is having a holiday appetizer recipe swap. This is not exactly traditional but it is really good. It works for any appetizer not just for the holidays. I have made this savory cheesecake many times. I make it almost every year for our office Christmas party. It is always a hit. I have also made it for church functions. We also served […]

Whole Wheat Spoon Rolls

Right now I am really trying to incorporate more whole wheat into our diet. I am adjusting and changing recipes. I am doing a lot of experimenting and some things work and some things don’t. I have found a few whole wheat bread recipes that I like. I have one that makes really good sandwich bread. But I was getting tired of just bread, so […]

Using Different Salts

I decided that since some of my recipes, like the artisan bread in five minutes, call for different types of salt it would be a good time to talk about salt. Many of my recipes use different types of salt. I use kosher or sea salts when I grill meats and vegetables. Sea salt is great sprinkled on raw vegetables. Many of the breads I […]

Vintage Cookbook

I love cookbooks. I love all kinds of cookbooks. A couple of years ago my mom gave me a cookbook published in 1915. I loved looking through this old cookbook. It talks about cooking over coal. It also shows me a fireless way of cooking. When I look through this cookbook it reminds me of how easy we have it today. Some days I complain […]

Slow Cooker Pudding Cake

Sandra and I were thinking the same thing this week. Chocolate! For her version see Slow Cooker Thursday. I have tried several crock pot cakes. This one is the best one I have tried. My kids loved it. It is a combination of cake and pudding mixed together. I served it with whipping cream but ice cream would also be really good with it. It […]

Black Bean Chowder

Saturday night for dinner I made the Pioneer Woman’s Black Bean Chowder. It was so good. I think this is the best black bean soup that I have made. It had really good flavor and we all enjoyed it. It does make a lot though. I think next time I will half it. I knew that it would make a lot because it has 32 […]

Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chipsters

This cookie recipe comes from the cookbook “Baking From My Home To Yours” by Dorie Greenspan. My sister told me about this cookbook a few months ago. Since then I have checked it out of the library three times. I know it is a cookbook I like when I check it out multiple times. I love this cookbook. It is full of great recipes and […]

Simple Summer Dish

Right now we are picking a lot of tomatoes from our garden. Well, it seems like a lot. It is not enough to do a bunch of canning type things with it but it is enough we are eating them at almost every meal. I have tried several bruschetta type recipes over the years. Although they have been good I have not found one that […]


We like pizza at our house. We usually make homemade pizza at least twice a month. I have posted my favorite pizza crust recipe. It came from Taste Of Home back around 1994. (I turned it into a whole wheat version) My husband’s favorite topping for pizza is pepperoni, but it is usually so greasy. I have tried the turkey pepperoni but we did not […]

Thoughts On Cooking Gourmet Yet Being Frugal

Last Friday I went to a used book sale in our area. It is held every other month and it is to benefit a charity that helps families in need with food and medical help. I enjoy going to this sale. Sometimes I only find a book or two, other times I come away with quite a stack of books to read. They have everything […]
