4 ingredient dessert that’s ready in 30 minutes. Well I’m in! I’ve been trying to think of other ways to use rice crispy cereal besides just the regular treats that we all have a million times. Fred Meyer had their cereal on sale for $1 a box so I grabbed a few. Figured they have a lasting shelf life Continue reading

Pork Chop Ranch and Cream of Chicken

Pork Chop Ranch and Cream of Chicken

I was looking for a super easy meal with just a few ingredients the other day. I have decided to pursue my vinyl decal work and signage a bit more so I was running a bit shy of time. Dinner is one meal I like to cook everyday. If I had a kitchen table I would probably request we sit every day and enjoy our meal together. Continue reading

Potato Chowder

I love soup and potatoes. So of course one of my classic go to fall/winter meals of all time is potato chowder. Typically every fall I buy a multitude of potatoes. Russets, red, Yukon, yellows, purple, fingerlings any kind. But I always have on hand russets. They are cheap, about $1.50 for 10 lbs, and you can make Continue reading

I love fall. I want to bake, craft, wear scarves, layer my clothes, drink pumpkin spice latte (I’m from the PNW – I have to have coffee and I typically drink it black except for an occasional pumpkin spice), and eat apples. They are a dime a dozen around here and I like to take full advantage of it. I’m even going to Continue reading

She made bread from scratch my whole life. & she taught me. I won prizes for my wreath shaped breads from school. Made wheat, flavored, dessert Continue reading

Oreo Treats – Power’s Out Dessert

Oreo Treats

Oreo Treats

So I found this easy recipe all around on Pinterest and figured hey I can make those. We have a friend having a house-warming party and I was always raised that you bring food or a gift to every invite. Sometimes people don’t specify so I don’t know if I’m to bring things or not. Wine, beer, coasters, funky kitchen gift (avocado slicers are minor miracles in case you ever need a quicky gift), a babysitter or designated driver. Continue reading

Easy Salsa

I love fresh salsa. It is easy to make, you just dice, dice, dice! We will eat the jarred from the store but it’s just not the same. Fresh is best. Even picky husband who doesn’t really like tomatoes loves my salsa. Weird I know. Maybe because Continue reading
