I had a version of these meatballs at a golf club recently, and they were pretty dang yummy. Now this is my take on it. They didn’t have the sun-dried tomatoes, but rather golden raisins. I thought my family would […]

This is a recipe that you can throw together the night before and stick it in the crockpot warmer before you go off to work.  Summer sports are in full swing here, so that means we are running about 7 […]

Warning: This makes a lot, so you need a big slow cooker.  I also estimated, as I was just throwing things in the crockpot.  This is a VERY hearty soup, and you don’t *need* everything that I put in there. […]


Another grilling recipe, whereby I try to be creative.  This is great for guests, or just your average Tuesday night. I am not sure I would really call this a “caprese” chicken, since I used Marinara sauce on it instead […]


Haricot verts = skinny green beans A friend made this dish for us on New Years Eve several years ago, and I fell in love.  It has a great sweet, tangy flavor to it and is a wonderful side dish. […]


Ah, summertime.  Time for grilling! I made these on Friday night, along with a marinated pork tenderloin and skewered Vidalia onions.  We served it with a lovely Carlisle Syrah, and then spent the rest of the evening enjoying the night […]

The day I made this I had gone on a school fieldtrip with Kai.  Either Brian or I usually go on the kids’ fieldtrips, and I knew that there was no way in heck I was going on the January […]


I love deviled eggs.  Apparently, I am not alone.  When I bring them out at parties, the menfolk and small children go, “Oooooh, eggs!”.  A friend that I lived with briefly also fondly remembers me making deviled eggs on random weekdays.  Not […]


Now that we aren’t at baseball or softball 4 nights out of the week, and the current sports are more manageable for dinners, I am cooking again.  It was time to try out some recipes I found on Pinterest, so […]


Every Sunday night during the school year we go to church at 5pm, which is followed by dinner at 6pm and then the kid’s Catechism class at 6:30.  We have had to help with the dinners as part of the […]

One day when I got home from work I realized I didn’t really have anything out for dinner, but I had a lot of pantry supplies.  I took out a box of large shells, various ends of different cheeses, whatever […]
