Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Apple butter.  Smooth, delicious, sweet apple butter.  I was eating spoonfuls of this stuff.  Spoonfuls.  Just because I could.  Don’t judge, it’s that good. Apple picking leads only to one thing… Apples, apples, apples!  And more apples!  Which leads to… What do you do with all those apples?! I was thinking of all the delicious […]

Supermoon Lunar Eclipse

Last night was awe-inspiring.  This was the first supermoon lunar eclipse since 1982, the year I was born oddly enough.  The next one won’t be until 2033, 18 more years! We had a pretty good view from our backyard.  We brought lawn chairs out and moved around so that we could get a good look […]

Fall Mix

It’s officially fall.  Whomp, whomp.  Summer is over.  As you may know, I have mixed emotions about fall.   So to lift my spirits, I have something fun today.  Fall mix!  This stuff brings back so many good memories of family and togetherness, it’s hard to be upset about the fact that soon everything will […]

Fiesta Rice Casserole

If you like casseroles, this one is always a hit with my family.  It’s also a great make-ahead freezer meal!  It’s sure to fill you up; loaded with chicken, rice, and beans.  A tasty Mexican twist on chicken and rice casserole! This casserole has quickly become a favorite amongst everyone in the family.  As you […]

Chicken Gyros

Don’t let the name of this recipe fool you.  The chicken from this recipe has such great flavor, it doesn’t always make it into the pita! Delicious on it’s own, spectacular as gyros. I was just talking with a friend about dinner ruts.  Have you been there?  Oh, I have.  Many times.  I like to […]

Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce! Fun to say and even more fun to eat! This cool cucumber sauce goes with my Chicken Gyros.  If you know of any other great uses… feel free to let me know. Sometimes I get home from the grocery store and wonder what in the world I was doing.  Was I shopping in […]

Taco Pizza

Have you ever had a taco pizza?  If not, it probably sounds odd.  It’s actually quite popular around here.  Even the gas station makes one they’re kind of famous for.  I haven’t had a taco pizza in years.  But alas, with our recent pizza addiction, everyone was requesting taco pizza.  So, we made one the […]
