Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies

Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies

It's like December all over again around here! Cookies!  Yay!  This is my third batch of Peanut Butter Crinkles in three weeks.  I'm getting to the point where I can make these without the recipe. I love that when that happens! Remember those classic peanut butter cookies,  the kind we had as kids....with the little fork criss crosses on them? They were pretty crumbly, and sometimes darn right dry. But these beauties are chewy and crackly and crunchy and perfect.  I'm … [continue]

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs in Creamy Tomato Sauce

Chicken Meatballs2a

  Meatballs are beautiful things.  I don’t know why I go so long before I make them.  I love them.  Portable, stuffable…like stuff them in your mouth stuffable.  You could make a meatloaf with the exact same ingredients but it won’t taste as good as a meatball…why is that?  Life is full of food mysteries my friends…. I […]

Betty Crocker’s timeless Cream Wafer Cookies!  I first posted these little beauties in 2011.   Funny, I didn’t even give mixing instructions, only ingredients in my original post.  I had so much to learn!  I was using a little point and shoot and just messing around with snapping off some pics of my favorite food.  Happiest […]

Baked Honey Garlic Chicken

Baked Honey Garlic Chicken

It probably  goes without saying that I spend a whole lot of time searching around for great recipes to share with y’all. I try to avoid any recipe that is too popular because a.) I want to have original recipes and b.) I do not want to step on my fellow food bloggers toes and […]

Lime and Garlic Salmon

Lime and Garlic Salmon

I have become a morning cook. I like to get all my cooking done in the a.m. During my working days I would try to cram all the cooking and photography in on the weekends.  Exhausting and not much fun. This blogging thing is supposed to be fun…right? Besides, the light from my kitchen window is perfect around […]

Salisbury Steak
