Honey Whole Wheat and Oats Bread

Honey Whole Wheat and Oats Bread

I will be the first to admit that I do not consider myself a baker. While I love consuming baked goods I would rather whip up a sauce from scratch or create a yummy marinade. Every once in awhile, I succeed with a baked good […]

Sausage, Ham, & Egg Breakfast Casserole

Sausage, Ham, & Egg Breakfast Casserole

Things are settling down and cranking up for us around here these days. We’re finally getting into some routines, making some friends, and building our life here. As for my husband’s Chiropractic practice, things are slowly but surely falling into place. He is doing a […]

From-Scratch Hawaiian Haystacks

From-Scratch Hawaiian Haystacks

I went through a phase in my life as a teenager that I hated Hawaiian Haystacks. I thought it was a strange and gross meal that was basically flavorless chicken gravy on some rice. So I boycotted the dish for years. Eventually, I stumbled across a recipe for the chicken sauce made from scratch. Of course I tried it and I was hooked on Haystacks again. I've altered the recipe slightly to fit my tastes and to serve a crowd. The instructions list this recipe as making about 9 cups. It made enough Read more [...]
Buffalo Chicken Dip with Variations

Buffalo Chicken Dip with Variations

Sometimes I get on food kicks. Some people call them cravings but I call them food kicks. However, usually I get a craving, and then it turns into a food kick and I have to make it several times in a short amount of time. […]

Quick & Easy Teriyaki Chicken with Pineapple Ginger Rice

Quick & Easy Teriyaki Chicken with Pineapple Ginger Rice

How about a quick & easy, thirty minute meal, that’s packed with flavor? Marinated Teriyaki Chicken with Pineapple Ginger Rice. Even my picky three year old son loves this chicken! And the rice too, probably because it has pineapple in it. I love when I […]

Flu Fighting Stew

Flu Fighting Stew

  As I'm sure you've already heard, and perhaps you're tired of hearing, we've had our fair share of sickness around the house. We moved here to Idaho at the end of December, and since then, my boys have been sick three times. When I say sick I mean more than just a little sniffle. Blake is overly prone to getting the croup. Every time he get any sort of cold or cough, it settles right in his voice box and he gets the croup. It's terrible. He panics because he feels like it's hard to breathe Read more [...]
Velvet Cake

Velvet Cake

  I really like keeping promises that I make, and I made a promise a couple days ago that I would share this cake recipe soon, so here I am, keeping my promise. I’m pretty nice like that. Most days. Let’s have a chat about […]

BBQ Chicken Lasagna

BBQ Chicken Lasagna

So I have to be honest, I am quite tired of having sick kiddos. We have lived in Idaho for 4 weeks now and my kids have been sick 3 different times. If you do that math, that’s being sick almost every week. Not only […]

From-Scratch Banana Cream Pie

From-Scratch Banana Cream Pie

  Well, the Superbowl was a little disappointing this year to say the least. I feel pretty terrible for Peyton Manning. Poor guy. But the Seahawks dominated, so congratulations to them. Superbowl aside, things have been pretty crazy around here with really sick kids and opening my husband's Chiropractic practice! We are absolutely thrilled that he has opened his doors and now we just need to find some more patients.   A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine asked for a really good Banana Cream Read more [...]
