Summer is most definitely with us! Hot, humid in Oklahoma due to the incredible rainfall amounts we’ve had. But summer also means lots of vegetables in season. Vegetables that can be purchased from local farmer’s markets, grocery stores – some of which carry local produce – friend’s gardens and even your own garden. So many yummy… Continue reading Vegetable Burritos
Recently I shared a recipe for a beet and orange salad that was amazing! Since it appears that summer is pretty much here, today I thought I’d better share another. After all, who wants to cook and/or eat super hot food in this kind of weather. I don’t! Really, all I want is ice cold watermelon… Continue reading Chicken Avocado Mango Salad
So are you tired of poultry in general, from turkey at Thanksgiving, possibly again at Christmas? If so I have a delicious recipe that you really do need to make! It’s like having the tastiest, most tender roast with gravy, carrots and onion, in soup form! It’s warming and a heavier meal that most of us… Continue reading Beef Burgundy(less)!
Have you checked your freezer lately to see what treasures may be hiding in there?! Sometimes after Thanksgiving and Christmas I find myself left with multiple containers of turkey in the freezer. Although we love it, we can only eat so much baked turkey and turkey sandwiches! The rest gets frozen for another day. I’ve… Continue reading Plentiful Poultry
Many years ago, more than I can even believe, I received an electric carving knife as a gift at one of my wedding showers. My thought was who would ever need or use one of these. Yet for some reason I held onto it instead of releasing it through any number of garage sales that we… Continue reading Turkey Time!
The last couple of weekends I’ve been busy stockpiling food for a camping trip we are planning for fall break. In my opinion this is the best time of the year for it. Warm days and crisp nights perfect for a campfire! We are turning our Aerostar van into a temporary camper as we decide… Continue reading Lemon Garlic Chicken Legs
Several years ago, while at a craft fair my mother-in-law exhibited in, I found a ceramic chicken roasting stand. Just a simple funnel looking thing. And funny looking – especially with a bird sitting on it! I’d never seen anything like it before and decided to give it a try. I loved the ease of… Continue reading Roasting Chicken – Make Ahead Meals Continue
A few weekends ago I had the fun of visiting my daughter in Little Rock, AR. Well, I guess if you consider spending a 12 hour day and a 7 hour day meal prepping in the kitchen fun, then it was fun! She is helping a friend get an organic farm up and running. One of… Continue reading More Make Ahead Meal Prep Ideas
Or Janes. Whatever you decide to call these, they are delicious and as American as baseball and apple pie! I never used to really like Sloppy Joes until I received this version from a friend. The seasonings and vegetables come together to make a great tasting mixture that can be served on a bun or even… Continue reading Sloppy Joes
At least I hope they are! Several years ago I found a recipe for making green chile sauce in the newspaper. Particularly Hatch green chile sauce. I saved the clipping for years. Then my good friend and neighbor, Linda, saw that Whole Foods had them and roasted them as well. This was a few years… Continue reading Hatch Green Chiles Coming!
