I left my career to go pro in taking care of my family. I cook something nearly every day. It's not always fancy and sometimes it's downright simple, but I think it is worth sharing.

So, Easter is behind us and this means leftover ham in my refrigerator. I often use ham as a substitute for bacon (don't hate me, my husband has a family history of heart disease) in recipes. I always have canned black beans on hand. Recently I've started using dry bea...

I know, the title sounds a bit over confident. I only use it because this is the name the cookies came with. At a work potluck I spotted a really yummy looking plate of cookies. When I tasted one I was pleased to find that they were as delicious as they looked. I've ma...

Wait, I haven't shared my granola recipe yet? A dozen blog posts and none of them featured this recipe? I'm sorry. It probably should have been my first. I've been making my own granola for years. First of all, I'm too cheap to buy the amount of granola we consume at t...

Everyone is looking for a way to use up zucchini when August arrives. I have no idea where I acquired this recipe years ago, but none that I've tried since are as delicious. We happen to live close to a couple of fantastic farms who offer pick your own blueberries as w...

I've been making these muffins since my daughter was old enough to eat solid food. My "health food" philosophy doesn't revolve around organic or non-GMO products. My focus is on reducing the amount of processed foods that we eat. I try to feed my family food that is ma...

I am not Jewish, however, I love making macaroons. There is something about them that reminds me of little baked snowballs. Not only are they tasty, but you're less likely to have a direct competitor at a bake sale if you bring these than you would with say... a chocol...

I've always had wild blackberries growing on the perimeter of my suburban yard. A year or two ago my mother in law have me a few shoots of her mother in law's raspberries. For the last two summers I've left them to my daughter and the birds who seem to have picked over...

As my family has started doing more camping, I have started doing more campfire cooking. I've been scouring the internet for good options. I have a thing here. It can't be too fussy. I don't want to make it too hard. Yes, you can actually prepare some pretty gourmet fo...

I grew up eating ramen noodles out of a package. My friends next door called it "long noodle soup". As I've mentioned before, I'm no food snob. I'm not embarrassed to say that I like the package product just the way it comes. I am, however, intrigued by the idea of doi...
