Savory Pork Loin in the Crockpot

It’s that time of year…time to get out those Crockpots, dust them off and cook up a delicious comfort meal! During the Summer months, I often think about using the Crockpot to cut down on heat in the kitchen, but somehow it doesn’t seem to get done. But during the Fall and Winter months, we […]

Mom’s Homemade Egg Noodles

In honor of our Moms, Doug and I wanted to share with you a couple of their recipes that we remember growing up. A few days ago, Doug shared his Mom’s Strawberry Freezer Jam recipe and today I’m sharing my Mom’s Homemade Egg Noodles. My Mom was a wonderful cook, baker and gardener. Her yard […]

Individual Chicken Pot Pies

Chicken Pot Pies are one of those comfort foods I remember enjoying as a kid. Except that my Mom made the frozen Pot Pies that you just throw in the oven and heat up. Not that those don’t taste good, and especially if you are in a hurry, but these Individual Chicken Pot Pies that […]

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 […]

And the best thing about this is that […]

Mom’s Beef Stew

One of my all time favorite comfort foods has to be Beef Stew, just the aromas that fill the kitchen as it simmers to fruition brings back memories of winters long ago. Of spending time with neighbor’s and my brothers and sisters playing in the cold with no worries except ducking from the occasional snowball. We could […]

Western Omelet Bake

Question: “How do you enjoy your tea?” When Lipton asked “How do you enjoy your tea?” the first thought was of breakfast. As you can imagine we have a lot of early mornings around here and what better way to get the morning going than a steaming hot cup of tea. We are constantly looking […]

Open Faced Grilled Cheese

If there is one staple of our kids’ childhood while they have been growing up it would have to be grilled cheese sandwiches. There are so many ways to enjoy them, alone or pairing them with your favorite soup. Today I decided to created an Open Faced Grilled Cheese using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. While over […]
