Tomato Soup: Homemade & Freezer Friendly

Tomato Soup: Homemade & Freezer Friendly

Tomato soup and grilled cheese is a personal go-to of mine during Lent. This year I decided to opt out of buying pre-made, canned soups and try my hand at a hearty homemade tomato soup. Don’t get me wrong, we eat canned soup from time to time and I have nothing against it! I just […]

Chicken Tostadas With Fresh-Mex Slaw & Pico

I absolutely love ordering tacos at restaurants when they top them with a fresh, creamy cabbage slaw! The added crunch, zing and freshness just sets them off! Such a treat! I don’t know why I hadn’t tried to recreate a fresh-mex slaw at home before! I happened to have a little extra cabbage on hand […]

Simple Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Shortcut

Why does a meal always taste better when someone else makes it for you? I wish I could go back in time and savor every meal my mother made me at home. I’d appreciate it so much more now that I’m a mom and find myself cooking for my family almost every night of the […]

My little family is loving this Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup!

It’s soup season! At least it is at our house!

There is nothing more comforting than a warm and hearty meal on a cold and rainy day. I love throwing together crock pot meals when the weather is dreary.

Easy Skillet Hash With Sausage

I’m here! I’m back! Sorry for going MIA last week. A little bug finally made it into our household and boy did it get the best of us! After weeks of dodging the flu from our extended family and friends, or so we thought, it managed to find us. It’s crazy how far behind a gal […]

Sloppy Joes: A Family Favorite

Sloppy Joes: A Family Favorite

This is another one of those nostalgic recipes for me. The kind of recipe that made a regular appearance at the dinner table during my youth. The kind of recipe that originated from my grandma’s kitchen and was continued on through the generations now resting on my dinner table. This recipe didn’t come with a […]

Taco Pizza

Taco Pizza

This dish is a bit nostalgic for me. Here in Missouri, Casey’s General Stores are in many small towns and for my hometown, Casey’s was the only “pizzeria” for miles… many miles. When we ordered pizza on a Saturday night you bet it was Casey’s pizza! I know, I know… it’s a gas station but […]
