Salsa

It’s hard to believe Fall is already here.  The summer flew by and it was never more evident when the first real cold front came through this past weekend.  It was at that point that I realized we better enjoy the last of what our garden was producing which wasn’t much. I’m not sure...

Italian Stromboli

Oh my stars…..  I am sharing a truly delicious recipe with you today! No seriously I wish there were more of this to eat in the house.  I’m seriously contemplating making another one just like this or a different version. I remember taking a food class in High School and we would make huge...

coffee chocolate cookie

This past week I stressed myself out majorly over the thought of our little girl coming in just 2 months.  Not sure if this happens to all moms every time you are expecting or more so when it’s your first baby.  We went and got the glider for her room and caught up on...

Chicken Cranberry Salad

Beef and Potato Stew

You may have noticed that I have been MIA for the past two days.  Shaun and I got back home from my parents house late Sunday night.  Then Monday night I started to not feel very well.  Not sure if it was the go-go-go attitude from my sister’s wedding or the stress knowing that...

Butternut Squash

The weekend is almost here!  I feel like the week flew by so quickly.  It could be from all the cat naps I took. It rained today in the Hill Country and it was absolutely beautiful to see and hear.  The rain where you want to put on your bathing suit and play in...

Mexican Pasta

It’s Day 6 at home with my parents in the country.  There is a high possibility that it could also be day 6 of taking a nap.  I couldn’t be happier and neither could the dogs. While I have been here I haven’t really done any cooking until today.  My parents have been so...

olive garden dressing

I’m a HUGE fan of Pinterest.  It makes things simple to bookmark so I can find them  easily in the future.  For the past couple of months I have noticed several recipes claiming to be exactly or pretty close to “Original Olive Garden Dressing Recipe.”   I know that they sell their dressing at...
