Here is another recipe from the Kraft Foods Sam’s Club Two-week meal planner. This simple recipe turned out to be one of my favorites. I thought it sounded interesting to make a tuna sandwich with cream cheese instead of mayo or salad dressing. The whole family loved it. I’ve actually made the recipe several times.... Read More

I found this recipe a while ago in a Lion House Cookbook I checked out from the library. I think it was from the Lion House Entertaining cookbook. The library is a great place for me, lots of cookbooks that I can have for 3 weeks for free. My husband and our pocket book are... Read More

I usually only share recipes that I absolutely love on my site. However, I promised to share my experiences with all the recipes from the Kraft Foods/Sam’s Club dinner planner. This recipe today was one of those that I didn’t love, but I didn’t hate. It was just OK. Nothing to shout about. I must... Read More

Reese’s Brownies

My family is big brownie fans. For the most part, I have to admit I hardly ever make brownies completely from scratch. I really love the Betty Crocker brownie mix. However, I usually jazz them mix up in one way or another. This time I decided it would be fun to make a Reese’s peanut... Read More

Mini Mexican Pizzas

So the other day I was trying to figure out what to fix for lunch. With the kids out of school for the summer, rice cakes for lunch (my usual fast lunch) just wouldn’t cut it. Also being that my children have been raised by a foodie, peanut butter and jam doesn’t work for lunch... Read More

This is another one of the recipes from the Kraft Foods/Sam’s Club dinner planner. I have seen pasta recipes before that use cream cheese to create the white sauce, but have never tried them. I’ve always stuck with a butter and cream combo. This dish was easy to prepare and very tasty. The whole family... Read More

This is a recipe I got years ago from a Quick Cooking magazine (now Simple and Delicious). It is quick, easy, and a fun dessert for Summer.

This recipe is another one that came from the Kraft Foods/ Sam’s Club dinner planner. This was a tasty sandwich that’s perfect for Summer. The recipe says to cook the chicken in a skillet on the stove top, but I elected to cook it on my outdoor grill. I also couldn’t cook my chicken without... Read More

This is a quick and easy drink that is so delicious. I got it in an email I get from Every Day with Rachel Ray. This combination of ingredients is excellent. The fresh mint adds a nice element to this drink. You need to mix some of this up to drink as you relax on... Read More
