A Change in the Game

I work most evenings, so for months, my sister would make dinner for the family. Well, my sister got a job (yay!) and started working 9-5 last week…which means making dinner is up to me again! I love cooking, so I don’t mind that the responsibility has fallen on me, and fortunately for me, my …

What-a-Great-Website Wednesday! Week 16

We in the A Family have decided to Make The Switch – from red meat to turkey. That sounds very official, but it’s really not. We’re not strict about it at all. We still occasionally eat burgers, but for the most part, we’re switching to turkey. Why, you may ask? I won’t start lecturing about …

Two New Recipes!

I tried two new recipes for dinner last night, and because they were a success, I thought I would share them! The first recipe is for slow cooked macaroni and cheese. I was looking for recipes using elbow macaroni, but I also wanted a way to use up some tomatoes. We have quite a few …

I said in my previous post that I would give a review of the Slow Cooked Macaroni & Cheese. Oops…it’s a little late. First of all, I made ours with whole wheat pasta. I’ve been trying to stick with healthier foods and found that we really like the taste of the whole wheat pasta. The …

Slow Cooked Macaroni & Cheese

It’s a warm day here in Maryland. The temperature is 91 and the heat index is 102. Because we don’t have central AC in our house, I decided to stick with dinner recipes that could either be done in the crockpot or in a skillet. Tonight’s dinner is something we’ve never tried before: Slow Cooked …

What-a-Great-Website Wednesday! Week 4

Today’s post is an ode to my baking hero, the lovely Picky Palate. I came across her food blog a few months ago and have been enamored since. Looking through her recipe index, you can tell that she not only enjoys food, but cooking and baking as well. She has a unique creativity that allows …
