A friend gave me some more rhubarb (thanks Kate!) so I thought I’d try out a new recipe. This is so simple and quick to throw together. I made it while our pizza cooked–yeah, it’s fast. The ¬†sweet tartness is really yummy on a hot summer evening. So you’ll need about 7 stalks of rhubarb […]

I’m always searching for a way to make pancakes more nutritious especially since my family is less than enthusiastic about whole wheat flour in their pancakes. (Warning: Do not try using even half whole wheat flour in this recipe. It causes the batter to take on a pudding-like consistency and makes it impossible to turn […]

Early this summer I decided to buy a new cookbook. I (and my family) were a little tired of the same old same old. After reading reviews and even testing some recipes from other books (listed on the author’s website), I purchased this one.

I’ve been experimenting with quite a few new recipes this summer so I thought I’d share one my family has been requesting again. In fact, we’re having it for dinner tonight. Let’s get started.
You’ll need 4 bonleless, skinless chicken breasts. When I photographed this recipe, I used frozen because that’s what I had. Today I […]

Moroni Feed Company is famous for its BBQ Turkey recipe for good reasons. This is one of the best ways to eat turkey. It’s even delicious served cold. Killer Beans are the perfect complement to this main dish. The store was out of turkey the Saturday night before our Spring break so I bought chicken […]
