I have a HUGE weakness for Spaghetti Sauces. When I was a young girl (sounds like the beginning of a song doesn’t it?) I would walk to my Grandma’s house for lunch. My elementary school was a 10 minute walk and I always loved having her all to myself for lunch. My grandpa worked and wouldn’t come home for lunch, which meant my grandma and I would have some alone time. […]
Reese’s Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting
Matt and I, along with our friends Angie and Ryan coach 2 soccer teams. One is for our youngest daughters: Bear and other Bear (they are friends but could pass as twins!). The other team, U16, is for the oldest 2, my Sunshine and their “Sky” (not his real name but neither is Sunshine’s!) Not wanting to play favorite here, but all four adults have to admit that the U16 team is a much more fun team to coach. […]
OHHHHH Chicken Coop!
It has been built! Finally, by moi! Not really by choice – because Mr. Man still can’t operate power tools….or so he says!
All kidding aside, I think I did fairly well for my first real “construction” job. I didn’t even get mad at Matt for supervising me and telling me what to do! That needed to be mentioned! I did however get really mad at myself for being 41 years old and not having a clue how to build stuff! […]
Gym Etiquette and Reese’s Peanut Butter Bread
Why together? Well, since this is pretty much me ranting and complaining about poor gym etiquette, I figured I should end with something delicious. This is to make you forget that I have pet peeves that are somewhat compulsive and over the top. Please enjoy the 7 deadly sins (as per Isabelle) of gym etiquette. […]
Eggplant Parmesan: no brainer!
Classic basic version is all I have to offer. But it is so good and a perfect meal for a special guest, a sick friend or when you might just need some comfort food.
Please note: this is NOT a Yummo Rachael Ray 30 minutes meal. Although I do love her 30 minute ideas, this requires patience and a little time. It is worth it….trust me….oh and the leftovers…OH MY! It might be wise to hide a small plate in the back of the fridge while you are serving everyone else….as a back up! […]
Cream Cheese Muffins
I thought this recipe would be all over the internet…it isn’t! So I had to do some homework!
I received a text from my friend Aislinn, well in fact it was from her oldest boy Junior (one of Bear’s best friend) and it said: “hi, this is Junior”. I replied: “hi, buddy, how was your day at school?” He: “great, thank you (so polite), could you please find the recipe for Meijer’s Cream Cheese Muffins?” Direct and to the point, I love that! […]
This is our version of a delicious Southern Classic meal. In fact, it is my Bear’s recipe, which she modeled after one of Rachael Ray’s recipe in a small “Kid Food cookbook.”
Chicken and Dumplings: Bear Style
My brother makes his recipe for us which is absolutely fabulous. His recipe is from his mother-in-law Peg and your waist line will grow just by looking at your plate. I am not kidding, his chicken and dumplings is amazingly delicious but will clog any and all arteries in your lovely body! I am glad Bear’s is more health friendly…although when you are homesick, tired, sick or just down and out….well my brother’s chicken and dumplings is what you want. […]
