My grandma loves to write. I am pretty sure I inherited my love of writing from her. She has books and books full of things she has written. I have always admired her and her dedication to her passions. She is a mother of 7 and a grandmother of who knows how many. She always has a smile on her face, and food in the oven 🙂 One of my favorite memories of her is a time when I was at her house and she gave me breakfast in the morning. It was a bowl of cereal topped with a scoop of ice cream. Best breakfast ever. Why not have dessert first...

If you’re looking for an awesome Valentine’s Day dessert, look no further than this delicious strawberry fudge recipe. This weekend, I am making a dessert for a church party. Since it’s a Valentine’s dinner, I wanted to make a Valentine’s Dessert! I found this one at www.insidebrucrewlife.com. It’s a super neat blog with lots of...

This recipe is my husband’s baby. He is always the one who makes this. Every time we get a big group together, this is the recipe that we use. It’s super easy to feed TONS of people with it, and everyone loves it. Plus, there is hardly any work that needs to be done. For this recipe, you need a pork shoulder roast (or beef), a crock pot, bbq sauce, a rootbeer (Andre will only use Henry’s) and garlic salt. Rub the garlic salt over your pork. Place it in the crock pot and pour in some rootbeer. Andre usually takes a little...

note – I halved the recipe to make this amount (12 oz) I realize that this says it’s recipe 19, and I haven’t done a 16 or 17 or 18, but I really have. I just wanted to get this one out before Valentines day because it would be perfect if you are trying to do a redish/pinkish themed dinner. Plus it’s amazing. My husband’s family has a tradition. On your birthday, you get to pick whatever you want for dinner (I think most families have this tradition). This is what I pick. A salad. Because I want an...

Ramen noodles are a staple at our house. We eat them a LOT. They are cheap and really good. But, they get old. So, we have a little trick at our house for making them fancier. Here’s what you need: Ramen Noodles (2 packs) frozen peas (about 1/2 cup) leftover meat of some kind (we used pork and salmon) eggs So, cook your noodles, but don’t put the seasoning in. While they are boiling, fry up your meat in a frying pan. Add your peas in after the meat is browned a little bit. Crack about 4 eggs in a bowl and mix...

Are you ready to have your mind blown? I learned how to make a smoothie that is super smooth, but dairy free. No yogurt or milk of any kind. The secret? Add an avocado. If someone else already knew this, you are now dead to me for the next.. 30 seconds.Okay, now that that’s done with, I will share with you the recipe for this fantastic smoothie. Not only is it smooth and yummy, it’s good for you, too! You need spinach, an avocado, a lime, and a mango/pineapple/strawberry frozen fruit mix. So first, I put in about 2 handfuls...

I sort of made this up on accident. I was trying to make one thing and I thought it failed.. horribly. BUT! It turned out that what I actually made was really yummy. It didn’t look super pretty until I put whipped cream on top… then who cares what it looks like, right? As long as there is a cream topping, everything is going to be okay. No, but seriously, try it. It’s easy and yummy. You need a yellow cake mix and the ingredients listed there, and a box of raspberry jello and cool whip.Make the cake mix according to...

My husband’s grandma is a wonderful cook. She loves to cook for people, and she is pretty darn good at it. She is always coming up with some kind of fabulous food. I have learned a lot from watching her at work. This is one of my favorite recipes of hers. It is easy and delicious and can be made with as little as three ingredients. Those ingredients are: elbow macaroni milk cheese When she makes this, she uses cheddar. I ran out of cheddar, so I used some Swiss too, and it was amazing. She also puts tomatoes and polish dogs on...

This recipe seriously took like 10 minutes to make. And, it’s magic. You’ll see why later. And, I had all the ingredients on hand (and I bet you do to.) Because it uses no eggs or butter and very little sugar, it was a popular dessert during World War II. I found it in Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook. That cook book is my number one go-to cookbook. If you don’t have it… you should buy it. It’s only $10 on Amazon or something like that. I really think that I would survive without any other cook book...

I decided to make these because they look super yummy and because they remind me of Valentine’s Day, which is coming up pretty quick! I got the recipe from Sprinkle Bakes. If you haven’t made something like this before, I suggest watching the video she has up about it. It really helped me. I did do a few things differently though. Number one being that I used a cream cheese frosting. It isn’t as white as her butter cream filling, but it is delicious. Another thing I had to modify was that I didn’t have parchment...
