Try It Out Thursday: Italian Wedding Soup

Try it Out Thursday Try It Out Thursday is dedicated to recipes, products or ideas that I find on Pinterest or receive in my e-mail. I tend to “pin” and save a lot of recipes and craft ideas and never try them so I decided that this will help me wade through the many pins andRead more

Ramen Noodle Soup

It may be 100 + degrees outside but that doesn’t mean I don’t want soup almost weekly. Soup makes this lady VERY HAPPY! Here in South Texas we stay pretty darn hot all the way til late September until our first “cool” front moves in and we get down to 80 degrees. I told aRead more

Zucchini Brown Rice Casserole

I love me some zucchini and when I have the time, this will be one of the first things I try to grow in my backyard! I love that you can add zucchini to almost everything. I love that it fits different flavor profiles. I love that the texture  is different if it is made intoRead more

Sweet Cherry BBQ Sauce

I was on vacation last week and The Mister and I took a trip to Corpus Christi to see my family. Before we left, we made a quick stop at Sprouts. We have one in the area but we have to drive 45 minutes to get to it so we decided to stop in. P.S.Read more

Summer Salad Blend

With all this HOT weather my household has been eating more and more salad. It’s easy to put together, it’s fresh, it’s crisp and everyone gets to choose what they want to add to it.

Mushroom Stroguignon

Mushroom Stroguignon. What is THAT, you ask? It is my meatless version of Beef Bourguignon and Beef Stroganoff. As I was cooking and plating I thought, this recipe is basically bourguignon and stroganoff combined. I had fun making and re-creating this recipe. I adapted  Smitten Kitchen’s Mushroom Bourguignon. Mushroom Stroguignon 240z package Baby Bella Mushrooms,Read more

Carnival of Bow Ties Pasta

I am very embarrassed to talk about this but my pantry is in a very, very sad state. It’s actually my least favorite space of the house. I really have no idea what my pantry houses. It does not have a light in it and I think that’s the biggest problem. A problem that needsRead more

Cauliflower Tarts

Cauliflower is The Mister’s “arch nemesis. . . the bane of his existence” but as for me and my house we will still eat the cauliflower. We made a deal because of something that went down a couple months back. He MUST eat the cauliflower if I serve it to him. It doesn’t mean heRead more

Down & Out & Doing Better

I know that I have been missing from the blog world for a bit but I’m feeling better now. For those of you who didn’t know, I have been sick for the past 3 weeks! While I was sick, I struggled A LOT with drinking enough water and even eating enough food. It was terrible.Read more
