Ricotta Stuffed Peppers – 21 Day Fix

Ricotta Stuffed Peppers.JPG

I have been looking for an appetizer that fits both the 21 Day Fix and something that is yummy. I don’t know why the first time I did the 21 Day Fix I didn’t see that ricotta is considered a protein. I have been missing out. What in the world??? Continue reading

Weekend Snack – Easy Salsa

Easy Salsa

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

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Have I mentioned I love to be a lazy cook. Honestly don’t we all? Oh sure we all love the big traditional Thanksgiving style meal. I do. It’s one of my favorites. Turkey, potatoes, stuffing, rolls, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, apple pie, cheesecake & whatever else your family includes in their traditional meal. As a person who didn’t grow up celebrating holidays we never Continue reading

Weekend Snack – Guacamole

Fast Guacamole

Fast Guacamole

Guacamole – One of those snacks, condiments or meals that I just can’t get enough of. It whips up fast, it’s fresh & it tastes so good since it’s homemade. I tend to make this numerous times a month just because we enjoy it so much. With chips, with tacos, with carrots, on a sandwich, Continue reading

Broccoli Bacon Salad

I think all of us have had this one or more times at a potluck. For my own wedding we requested it. Family “What do you want for a wedding gift?” Me “Could you make a batch of potato salad, you a fruit something or another & you a broccoli bacon salad.” As you can see I’m pretty informal. Mind you I was Continue reading

Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy

Annnnnd it raining. I know, I live in Washington and we expect it. But its August and we are roofing our house so I’m not too pumped that we have rain, thunder and lightning going on. In fact this makes me want to stay inside and cook a stick to your ribs kind of dinner. I saw something like this on Pinterest Continue reading

Layered Salad of Delight

Layer Salad 2

Oh layered salad, how I love your convenience. Let me count the ways. Well the layers I guess. Truly one of the easiest salads I have found from Pinterest. It’s all prep and minimal cooking (except bacon, which you could leave out but I wouldn’t, it’s too delicious!). Great for this heat wave we continue to keep having. I like that Continue reading

Meat and Potatoes – aka. Man meal

Meat and Potatoes

So my husband can be a picky eater. He doesn’t like pasta, hot tomatoes, and on and on. So many of the major food that’s available in this world. He loves meat and potatoes. We both do. I just also like more variety in my life. That’s one of the hardest things for me as the household chef is to accommodate both our tastes. But we both love this casserole I’ve put together with a few different recipes in this galaxy. It’s easy to prepare and he, along with most men, love it. Continue reading

aka Death By Chocolate

So if you follow me on Facebook you would see I did this cake last week. But I figured it was so fun I’ll share it on here also. Also last nights cooking was French fries and crab, nothing too spectacular to photograph there – Haha!

I made this cake for my nephew who loves candy. Almost to a fault. But I figured “Hey, I’m not working, I’ve always wanted to make this after seeing it all over Pinterest & if it doesn’t work rice crispy treats are an easy back up.” So I made it and it is one of the Continue reading
