I recently had some bananas that were over ripe and needed to be made into something. I remembered that Stephanie at Stephanie’s Kitchen had recently posted a recipe for Banana Cupcakes and decided to give them a try. They do taste like banana bread with frosting. Stephanie said she originally was starting to made banana... Read More

Sesame Chicken

Here is my cheater version of Sesame Chicken. I use popcorn chicken to simplify thing. I like to buy my popcorn chicken from Costco. It doesn’t have direction on the package for deep frying, but I do it that way anyway. The product is already fully cooked, so your basically heating it up. The sauce... Read More

After I saw that this... Read More

Now that you have the garlic mashed potatoes, I thought I’d share with you what I did with the steak along side the potatoes. This is the marinade recipe I used. It comes from Marci at On My Menu. It’s a marinade she uses a lot and she mentions using it on chicken. I used... Read More

The weather here has been crazy. One day it’s nice sunny spring weather, the next day the yard is covered in inches of snow. March weather is always crazy here in Utah. We had a few nice days last week and we decided to grill some steaks. I also decided to add this recipe for... Read More

Slow Rise Pizza Crust

So I’ve kind of been on a pizza kick lately. I have made 3 crust recipes already – fast and easy pizza dough, quick pizza dough, and Chicago-style garlic and butter pizza crust. This one is a little different. Two of the recipes could be made and used immediately. This one takes some planning. I... Read More

Magnificent Meatballs

Here is the second recipe that I tried from Stephanie Ashcrafts 101 Things to Do With Meatballs. This one used an interesting combination of ingredients. However they really do work together.
