Sweet Potato Fries with Marshmallow Dip

We have this ongoing fight in our house…Doug absolutely despises sweet potatoes. I think it’s pretty funny myself and was quite surprised when he suggested we make some Sweet Potato Fries for the Thanksgiving Leftover Party. Doug really can’t even stand the smell and won’t even touch any dishes that have sweet potatoes in them. […]

Homemade Cherry Pie Filling

Sometimes, after trying a recipe, I think…well, hello, why haven’t I been making this for years! This Homemade Cherry Pie Filling was exactly that way. I’m not a big pie baker, and when I do bake a pie, it’s usually chocolate with meringue, so I guess that might be why I never really made my […]

How Do You Make Pork Burgers?

After the success of the royal burger recipe, I thought it to be appropriate to show you another quirky burger recipe, the pork burgers. While growing up in the country when I was young had its ups and downs. One of the advantages of having livestock was the fresh meat we could have as a […]

Easy Barbecue Chicken Salad

With only 3 ingredients and a couple of optional ingredients, you can put together this Barbecue Chicken Salad in a flash.

With Football season upon us, and the best snacking season of all, we decided to give some a try ourselves. Although these […]

The original recipe from Betty Crocker uses Ham, but since we had some leftover Italian Sausage from the Sausage Potato […]

Cheddar Hush Puppies

Whether sitting down for an evening meal with the family, a camp out with friends, or a shore lunch with buddies after a day on the water fishing (I’m going to assume you caught some fish). Traditionally, these bite-size seasoned Cheddar Hush Puppies would be served with any fish or seafood, but I think they […]

Quick Pizza Sauce

One of the easiest ways to add unique flavors to your meals is to make your own sauces and one of the easiest ones is this Quick Pizza Sauce. We rarely purchase jarred pizza sauce opting instead for some homemade sauce instead. We haven’t had a place to put in a garden the past couple […]

Wine Bottle Decoration: Gifts from the Kitchen

We have had fun creating frugal gift giving ideas for you. If you are anything like me…I love the thrift stores, especially Goodwill. When I was recently shopping for some winter sweaters to make into stockings, I thought the sleeves would make a perfect Wine Bottle Cover. This Wine Bottle Decoration is quick, easy and […]
