Tex Mex Chili Caviar

Want something fast?! This Tex Mex Chili took me under 20 minutes to make and it tasted so good! I was sitting at home and got a craving for Ranch Style Beans! I don’t often crave Ranch Style Beans so I called the Mister and asked him to stop at the store for a can.Read more

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

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

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

Cauliflower Steaks & Other Roasted Veggies

Today is the first time I have felt like myself in 4 days. I’ve hardly left my bedroom and hardly eaten anything. I’m pretty sure that no matter what my doctor said, I’ve had strep. When you lie around all day and night crying because you can’t swallow anything, not even your own spit, thereRead more

Baked Bacon and a Blueberry Blitz

For the past 18 days I have been making healthier food choices. I am not on a DIET. I’m seriously trying to make a lifestyle change here. I want to be healthier, not skinnier (although that would be nice) and I want to feel better. I’m tired of taking meds for things that could beRead more
