Making Do

It seems like much longer than it really has been since we’ve had appliances. I think it’s been about 2 1/2 weeks but it seems like months. I of course, am used to using my stove every day and bake things at least four… Continue Reading “Making Do”

Million Dollar Stuffing

Happy Thanksgiving! We’re still living without appliances or carpet until next week. I can’t tell you how happy it made me to be able to go over to mom’s house and do some cooking! Stuffing or dressing? Does stuffing mean that it’s cooked in… Continue Reading “Million Dollar Stuffing”

It was 27 degrees this morning when we woke up.  Time to start thinking about all of those wonderful, homey, and comforting winter dinners. Shepherd’s pie is one of my favorites. However, my husband and I have been battling the flu for the past… Continue Reading “Unbelievably Easy Shepherd’s Pie”

Fall Lunch

Well, after feasting on Mexican food and indulging in multiple slices of coconut cake and lime tart over the past two days, I figured it was time to get back to reality. Luckily, reality can still be beautiful, delicious, and satisfying. Fall Salad 1/2… Continue Reading “Fall Lunch”

A Delicious Mexican Halloween

I love the “day after” feeling of a dinner party. I always feel so relaxed and satisfied. It turned out to be a really great night. The three days of cooking and preparing paid off. And even though we were missing a few guests… Continue Reading “A Delicious Mexican Halloween”
