Patriotic Cupcakes

Patriotic Cupcakes |

Here is a last minute dessert idea for your 4th of July celebration. These Patriotic Cupcakes are too cute! A box cake mix makes them easy to make. This recipe came from Quick Cooking (now Simple and Delicious). The recipe makes 18, however I decided to stretch it it 24. It worked ok, but I... Read More

Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad |

This is a great salad for summer! It’s great for barbecues because it isn’t a mayo based salad. It is different from the normal barbecue food. Also, it is a great salad to make if you have a summer vegetable garden. You can use up those tomatoes and cucumbers. This is a recipe that comes... Read More

Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

Strawberry Stuffed French Toast |

If you followed my blog last summer you’ll remember that I had zucchini fest. I had planted one zucchini plant in my garden that was giving me an abundance of zucchini, so I was trying recipes all the time to use up that stuff. I ended up with 15 different recipes. Well, this year my... Read More

Hot Hoagies

Hot Hoagies |

This is another great recipe that I found from Melanie at My Kitchen Cafe. In the summer, we tend to make a lot of sandwiches. This one is different and you eat it hot from the oven. It doesn’t have to cook for too long, so your house shouldn’t get too hot. However, I think... Read More

These Chocolate Waffles would be the perfect addition to an Easter Brunch. This is a recipe that I got from my Home Ec. class in high school. I actually have a great collection of recipes from that class. This time, I made these chocolate waffles with my recipe for caramel banana topping. However, my kids... Read More

Ham and Cheese Omelet Roll

Ham and Cheese Omelet Roll |

This is a fun way to do omelets. I also think it is easier than the traditional when you have several omelets to make. I originally go this recipe from a Taste of Home magazine. The recipe makes 12 servings in a jelly roll pan, but I reduce the recipe to make 6 servings in... Read More

Tangy Tuna Croissants

Tangy Tuna Croissants |

Here is a great recipe for lunch or an easy dinner. I adapted from a recipe on Priscilla’s Baking Adventures. I love tuna and this recipe included some ingredients that you don’t usually add to your tuna. And put it on a croissant and you can’t loose! This takes it a step up from the... Read More

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies |

I love peanut butter cookies and this is my go to recipe when I want them. This recipe came from a good friend. I got the recipe from her after she made the cookies for us and my husband actually ate them. Normally he wouldn’t ever eat peanut butter cookies. This recipe has a little... Read More
