Rambling, Turkeys and Mushrooms

I really need to stop feeling bad whenever I go a few days without blogging. Part of me wants to give you a play-by-play recap of Women of Faith. (It was amazing!) Part of me wants to revisit old topics that I feel need some closure. (I’ll get to them …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Mama’s Mac-n-Cheese

In my journey toward a home free of preservatives and processed foods, one of the most difficult tasks has been replacing Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. It’s just so stinkin’ easy to make! And the kids love it. Over the past few months, however, I’ve finally created an alternative that both …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Chicken and Orzo Soup

It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared a recipe with you all. I think it’s time. Besides, several people requested a bowl of this yummy dish just this week. It’s my go-to standard when my kids are feeling under the weather. Homemade soup is always better than canned or …

Strawberry-Peach Oatmeal Crumble

My friend Julie makes an amazing, to-die-for chocolate chocolate chip bundt cake. It’s DELISH!! Everyone loves it. In fact, my son cried this week when he found out Miss Julie had brought it and he didn’t get a piece. I do not have Julie’s recipe. Sorry. What I do have …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Winter Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

You know those seasonal recipe magazines that flood the check-out lanes? If you’ve ever fallen victim to the impulse, you know they’re usually a hit or miss. You may spend $4-6 to get just a handful of decent recipes. One purchase, however, has been the exception to the rule. I …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms

Today I’m sharing a new recipe (as opposed to a family favorite). I tried it just this week, but it went over so well, I’ve already made it twice and have decided to add it to my collection of “keepers.” I adapted this from a Rachel Ray recipe I found …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Broccoli Salad

Kellie, if you’re reading this, STOP NOW and go find another blog to visit. Anyone else who hates mayonnaise, you may want to follow her. Typically, I’m in your camp. I can’t stand mayo! Or ketchup, for that matter. There are few other things, too, like Cream of Mushroom soup, …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Soup in a Jar

I got the original form of this recipe at a MOPS meeting a few years ago. This was our craft for the day. We filled the jars layer by layer then topped them with decorative fabric. As always, I adjusted the recipe just a touch to our liking, and it …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash

‘Tis the season for apples! Lately all my friends and family have gone apple picking. We plan to, but it’s just not cold enough for us. You know our tradition with Forced Family Fun. (I wrote about it here and here.) Apple picking falls in that category. We always chose …

Recipe Swap Sunday: Breakfast Casserole

As promised, today I’m sharing my breakfast casserole recipe! Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures. I totally meant to take one on Friday, but then forgot. Sorry. In other news, I’m not quite sure what to call this dish. It’s not really a quiche because it doesn’t have a crust, …
