Improv Challenge: Lemon and Sour Cream Donuts

There’s something about the smell of lemons that makes me happy. I absolutely love to zest or juice lemons because even after washing my hands, that lovely lemon smell remains. I’m really curious as to why the don’t sell lemon scented candles. Or at least any that I’ve found. I’m […]

Crock Pot Asian Pork with Mushrooms

You know how I mention quite frequently that I live in the middle of no where and usually have a hard time finding certain ingredients? This recipe was no exception. Even before reading this recipe I’d heard of Chinese Five Spice. I swear I’ve even found it in a grocery […]

Macaroni and Cheese – Crock Pot

Macaroni and cheese is one of those meals that I’m always looking for the perfect version. I’m starting to wonder if it just doesn’t exist. Or maybe I’m just too picky about my mac and cheese. Luckily, its one of Tom’s favorite foods so he doesn’t mind eating each recipe […]

Garlic Butter Noodles

I’ve mentioned quite a few times now that Saturday’s are my lazy days and I typically don’t cook. Usually I spend my Saturday baking whatever I’ve decided for the week. This usually results in some strange choices for meals. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ll eat things […]

27 Things About Me

When I’m reading someone’s blog, I always like the little stories or comments they include about their life. I’m a naturally nosy person and like to know about people without outright asking them. Those little stories and comments satisfy my inner nosiness. Please tell me I’m not alone in this. […]

Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls

A couple of days ago on a message board I read quite frequently, someone mentioned that they were having Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls as appetizers for their wedding. Usually I’m not a huge fan of anything that needs to be fried, but my love of egg rolls and cheesesteaks won […]

Secret Recipe Club: Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuits

Whew! I sure did cut it close with getting this recipe done in time! I attempted to make it last weekend, figuring they were calling for snow (grrr!) but right in the middle of making it, the power went out for 5 HOURS! Of course I used the last of […]

Maryland Crab Soup

Unless you live under a rock, you know that Maryland is known for steamed crabs. And what is one to do when they have leftover crabs and no one to eat them? Make crab soup, obviously! Now there is one time when you absolutely can not make crab soup. Head […]
