This was a simple soup we had, just using ingredients on hand. I love having fresh homemade Chicken Stock in the freezer….makes life so much easier. From start to finish, 30-35 minutes cooking time? I had put in a 12 hour day, was too tired to think much, and on those days, soup fits the [...]
When we were kids (my brothers and sisters), we used to love eating Sloppy Joe’s. We always used leftover chili for this dinner – a quick, easy, tasty meal. For these Sloppy Joe’s I decided to make them pizza flavored – served on a gluten free bun. I know there is a lot of cheese [...]
This was super quick, easy and tasty. This is one of those meals to make when you don’t feel like cooking. It does help to have some leftover roasted chicken, and SCD cream made (I always make a big batch, some for sweet whipped cream, and some for savory dishes like this one). I am [...]

This was [...]
With warmer weather finally touching our shores, these past two weeks we have been using the BBQ more frequently and eating all kinds of salads.
This was such a simple tasty pasta salad. What makes this dish is the fresh herbs and the light lime dressing. Then with the added black beans for protein, a great [...]
This tasty breakfast is just down right fattening. But once in a while…..I just need to indulge! This post is not really about a recipe but more about the combo, and the way of layering this recipe that makes it stand out over regular bacon and egg breakfasts. And I just had to share [...]
This was such a quick, simple delicious meal, great for when you have had a busy long day. Plus, any leftovers would make a wonderful salad for lunch the next day.
