Baked Oven Omelet

Baked Oven Omelet

This is another recipe that comes from my mom. She has made this for as long as I can remember. The great thing about it is you can make it the night before and have it already to go in the morning. It works great for Christmas morning. Open presents while it cooks in the... Read More

Navajo Tacos

I absolutely love to make Navajo Tacos with my leftover Sweet Chili. You can use your own leftover chili or you can even open up a can or two if you like. I do occasionally rely on canned chili to make them, but I think they taste the best with the sweet chili. I also... Read More

Sweet Chili

Sweet Chili

When I was growing up, every year for Halloween my mom would make homemade chili. Since having my own children, I decided to carry on the tradition. Last year, I did decide to stray from the original recipe slightly. I wanted to make a quicker version. My mom’s original recipe required soaking the bean the... Read More

Chicken Pillows

Chicken Pillows |

There are a lot of different versions of this recipe out there. I actually adapted this version from 3 different recipes – my mom’s, my mother-in-law’s, and one from Alisa Bangerter whose recipe was on KSL news in 1998. This makes 8 large servings, but rarely do have have leftovers. My husband and two sons... Read More

My husband and son would say that this creamy version is the only option in their book.  I got this recipe from a neighbor years... Read More

Frog Eye Salad

This recipe is fun to make especially at Halloween time simply due to the name of this salad. This recipe comes from my mom. She’s had this recipe for as long as I can remember. You make it with a pasta that’s called acini de pepe. The pasta looks similar to tapioca after it’s cooked.... Read More

Sugar Cookies with frosting

When I first got married I worked as a teller in a local bank. One day a co-worker brought in some sugar cookies to share with all of us. After tasting the cookies we were all begging her for the recipe. Since then, when I want frosted sugar cookies, this is the recipe I use.... Read More
