Everyday Adventures

Everyday Adventures Tree in the country

It is time for another everyday adventures! 

It has finally cooled down a little bit here in Oklahoma and I am enjoying it. It is my favorite time of year to go for a walk.

I have been going for a walk almost every day. Getting outside, even if it is just for a short time, helps me so much. 

Oven Tacos

Oven tacos have been on the menu plan a lot lately. With the cooler weather I am using my oven more. That means recipes like oven tacos are back on the menu plan. 

If you have never tried my oven tacos you need to! I first shared this recipe about ten years ago. It has been one of my most popular recipes for years. 

Sausage and Sauerkraut

I posted this picture of sausage and sauerkraut in the crock pot in my Facebook group and I loved all the answers I got about sauerkraut so I decided to share it here too. 

Dinner one night recently was sausage and sauerkraut in the crockpot. In keeping it real life I will admit that I really dislike this dinner. My husband and two girls love it though so I occasionally make it.

It is easy to make with just two ingredients so at least it takes no time to make. It is kielbasa sausage and about 4 cups sauerkraut cooked on low for 4 or so hours.

Since I am not a fan of sauerkraut I think I will eat leftovers for dinner. I think sauerkraut is often is one of those things that you either really love or really hate. Do you love it or are you like me and avoid it?

Best Flour for Gluten-Free Banana Bread

I have been doing some work over on GF Kitchen Adventures. I have been sharing all kinds of recipes and gluten free tips. After testing several gluten free blends I shared the best flour for gluten free banana bread

We also did a redesign on the site to make it easier to find recipes. I am working on adding more gluten free recipes to it. I love the redesign and the new recipe index. We have a few things to still work on, but I love it so far. 

My gluten free recipes here are not going anywhere, I am just working on making GF Kitchen Adventures a place with a lot of gluten free tips, more gluten free specific information, and more recipes that have detailed instructions for gluten free. You can also find all my gluten free ebooks there

Puppy Pic

It has been a while since I shared a puppy picture! Remember the two dogs that we got back in March? 

They are not so little anymore. I got asked a lot of questions about them last time I shared a picture. The black one is a mixed breed.

We are not sure what all he is because we don’t think the owners were being 100% honest about what he was. However, besides being a typical puppy, he is a great dog.

It is a good thing he is cute though because I am ready to be done with the puppy stage. 🙂 

Dog Picture

The other dog that we got back in March is my daughter’s dog. He is a great dog, but is much more hyper than the other one. They are quite the pair and can get into all sorts of trouble together.

I am not sure what I was thinking when I agreed to get two puppies at the same time…


I have been working on updating some old kitchen tips posts. I used to do weekly kitchen tips so I have quite a few in the archives. This week I updated my What is Oleo post. Do you know what oleo is? It is not butter. 

I hope that your weekend includes some fall weather and some delicious fall food!

    I was fascinated by the Oleo post. I honestly didn’t know. I have seen many old recipes that call for it, I thought it mean’t oil. I typically buy real butter, but we have definitely had times when I was watching the grocery budget much closer and bought margarine. I just like real butter better, it seems to bake up in cookies so much better for me. I did grow up on margarine, that was all I knew because my Mom never bought real butter. I am sure because of cost, but also because that’s how it was in the 70-80’s.

    • I am glad that you enjoyed the Oleo post. I think most of us that grew up in the 70’s and 80’s ate margarine. It was so popular back then. And yes I agree butter works better for baking.
