Hectic Life Means Dinner Suffers

Last night, I got home from Blissdom and was exhausted in every way. Top that off with the fact that I was sick. I think gastroenteritis is the culprit. Ugh. I did not want to cook and hubby had just done 5 days solo with our 4+1 kids and wasn’t up to cooking either. My […]

Go make this…

You really need to try this.  I think it has one of the funniest names for a recipe… but it’s certainly accurate.  And really, it is about the yummiest way you can possibly cook a chicken. If you don’t like beer, don’t worry, it doesn’t really taste like beer.  We used a nice red ale.  […]

Chicken Soup for the Sickies.

Yuck. Yick. Yark. That sums up how we all feel around here. “Yark” is one of my made up words that means about the same thing as “blargh” or “Plech.” The feeling of Yuck to the second power. Headaches. Stuffy noses. Barking coughs. Feeling as gloomy as the weather. And tomorrow should be rainy which […]

New stuff in my sidebar

I just thought I’d point out that I’ve added several things to my sidebar recently. Among them, a link to my new recipe blog, Recipe Czar. The recipes I put on there are from several sources; friends, family, internet finds, my own brain… just a collection of the things I had saved in my recipe […]

I can't believe I'm about to do this.

I’ve said those words before and somehow they never keep me from doing what I can’t believe I’m about to do. Blame it on my OCD. I am going to give you a recipe that calls for Cheeze Whiz. I have never ever purchased Cheeze Whiz until yesterday. I can’t believe I’m going to admit […]
