Butternut Squash and Spinach Stuffed Wontons

Occasionally I get the urge to feel crafty or do something for myself. This past Sunday night I was experiencing some pretty bad back pain and honestly I thought it was the start of some labor contractions. I’m sure we’ve all seen a DIY rice sock heating pad, so I decided why not make my...

Cast Iron Santa Fe Chicken and Rice

I absolutely love rummaging through old family recipes that truly have a meaning or memory associated with them. This past weekend I finally decided to make one of my husband’s favorite dishes that his mom would make him besides Baked Ziti. His mom passed away a few years ago from cancer and anything that...

S'more Popcorn Balls

It’s barely the first of October and my mind is racing towards Christmas. I mean I can’t even sit back to truly enjoy it being fall with Halloween approaching. Candy has been bought along with a Rapunzel and Spiderman outfit. There is nothing else to do but just let it slowly creep our way...

Roasted Broccoli

lasagna soup

I’m officially 4 days into the craziness of my husband being gone and I only have about 7 days to go. You can read all about the madness that went down earlier this week on this post.   I woke up Tuesday thinking that the water works would finally be all dried up. They...
