My husband loves Spanish rice. I have always been nervous to make it because I always burn rice. I have a rice maker for that reason. I finally decided to get brave and make some using a modification of the recipe my husband’s aunt gave me. It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought, and it didn’t even burn! Here is what you need 1 cups of...

My mother in law always gets compliments on her delicious potato salad. People say that they hate potato salad, but that they love her recipe. I figured that I better post that one up here, since I am focusing on family recipes. She made it for my kid’s birthday party. It was a huge hit. Great for parties, potlucks, or at home dinners. It’s pretty...

Okay, I am going to get a little nostalgic for a minute 🙂 Did anyone else grow up watching Mr.Rogers Neighborhood? I LOVED that show. I don’t know why, but I would so look forward to getting to watch it on PBS. My little guy loves PBS and there is a new show created by the “Mr.Rogers Foundation” called Daniel Tigers Neighborhood. It’s SO cute! And actually teaches some really good things! There are always catchy little songs that go along with a lesson they are learning, and they are so helpful! We actually...

// This recipe is a variation of one of the first things I ever learned to cook, chicken tacos. My mom taught me how to bake, and how to help her cook, but the when I was in high school, it was actually a few of my boyfriends that first started teaching me to cook. The very first thing a boyfriend taught me was how to cook scrambled eggs (yes, I was 16 before I...

Bountiful Baskets is SUPER popular where I live. It’s an awesome co-op where you pay $15 and get a whole bunch of fruit & veggies. It is all non profit, but the participants are expected to help out once in awhile with the basket delivery. It’s great. Each week you get 5 different kinds of fruits and 5 different kinds of veggies, with...

// This recipe for salmon souffle is another one of my husband’s favorites. It kind of reminds me of quiche, except with salmon instead of breakfast meat. It is really easy to make, and it a little different than most dinners. If you like salmon, you’ll probably like this. Small warning – when you open the can of salmon, there will probably...

var r = document.URL; When it comes to family recipes, this one is a shoe in. When I was growing up, we would have Sunday dinners at my Grandparents house often. When I was really little, it was once a month. As the family grew, it faded into a once a month thing, and I always looked forward to that meal. It was a time to get together with all my cousins and laugh...

This is another recipe given to me by a reader. It, like all the food I make, was delicious. (Okay, maybe this blog thing is going to my head). The same lady who gave me the recipe for Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies. I made this on a night that my husband went camping, because he hates lasagna (his loss.) This recipe was easy (thus the name), and I will definitely be making it again… next time he’s gone… Here is what you need to make Easy Lasagna 1/2 lb hamburgerItalian seasoning1 can spaghetti sauce (If you don’t...

Have you entered our current giveaway? My husband has been asking me to make homemade chicken noodle soup since we got married. His grandmother makes some AMAZING homemade chicken noodle soup. She even makes the noodles. I am not that awesome yet. I’m pretty sure that when you become a grandmother, your cooking skills automatically go up by a power of 10. At least. She is a wonderful cook. Anyway, I knew mine wouldn’t compare to hers, so I have been hesitant to try it. Plus, you can get chicken noodle soup in the can so cheap!...

looks nasty right? Tastes delicious though.  I’m not counting this as one of my 100 recipes, but I think it’s a good one to know how to make. I had never made it from scratch before. I always either buy it in the can, or I use a bullion cube. But those both have so many preservatives and all that stuff in them so I thought that I would try to make it from scratch today. It was very easy, but it takes a long time. Afterwords, I made homemade chicken noodle soup, so it was worth it 🙂 So, to make chicken stock, you...
