Sugared Asparagus

A couple of months ago I had a very vivid dream that I had just finished decorating my formal dining room in my house. This was pretty strange because I don’t have a formal dining room, let alone a house, the color scheme is not something I’d typically like, and […]

Muenster Mac and Cheese

Have I mentioned that I love cheese? Like really love cheese? Pepperjack is by far my favorite, closely followed by cream cheese. But then there is American cheese, Mozzarella, Colby, Monterrey, Swiss, Muenster, Parmesan, Provolone, Cheddar and the list goes on and on. I know most of those cheeses are […]

Barbecue Pulled Chicken – Crock Pot

I’ve had pulled pork sandwiches but I’ve never had a pulled chicken sandwich. Last year when I bought the 30 Day Shred Jillian Michaels DVD I was suckered into signing up to see what recipes she offered. I quickly found out that almost all of the recipes she recommended came […]

Apple Pie for One

Last week I was talking to a co-worker about how badly I wanted apple pie. I told her I didn’t want to make a whole pie and be the only one to eat it. She gave me a genius suggestion. Make the apple pie in a ramekin. Apple Pie for […]

Sangria Ham

I know its a bit late to post something that could be made on Christmas, but I’m still trying to catch up on all of the recipes I’d like to blog. The first time I made a ham for Christmas I saw a recipe that used sangria and thought that […]

Thumbprint Cookies

I made these cookies earlier in the week, but I finally have time to blog them. The caramel and strawberry preserves ones are my favorites. Next year I think I’ll pick up some other flavored preserves to try out. Thumbprint Cookies Source: Amanda’s Cookin’ Yield: 4-5 dozen Printer Friendly Ingredients: […]

Ultimate French Onion Soup

For the longest time I was on a search for the perfect ramekin so I could make recipes like creme brulee and french onion soup. It never occurred to me until I was reading Joelen’s recipe for french onion soup that I could just as easily broil the bread in […]

Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

I was never a big fan of green bean casserole until I came across a recipe that used cheese instead of cream of mushroom soup. I like cream of mushroom soup and would even be tempted to add fresh mushrooms to green bean casserole, but sometimes you just need a […]

Pork Loin with Cranberry Sauce

Ever since Tom mentioned that he was going to make a real effort to eat vegetables, I’ve been determined to make him try as many things as possible that he would never eat before. Cranberry sauce is one of them. I figured if I added enough sugar, he’d definitely eat […]
