What’s For Dinner? Easy Crock Pot Beef Tacos

Photo from Pinterest

My daughters liked hard shell tacos, my husband liked the mix in a soft tortilla, and I enjoyed mine out of a bowl. I added Pico de Gallo salsa and chips to my bowl. So good!

After the dish has finished cooking, you can embellish with avocado, sour cream, salsa, jalapeno, habenaro, green onions, black olives, cheese, hot sauce, or whatever else you love. More

Super Easy Side Dish Ideas: Veggies

Around this time of the year, when life gets busier and busier by the minute, I find myself in need of a little cooking inspiration. Here are a few veggie side dish ideas that I found on Pinterest and Martha Stewart.com. I made the first dish last weekend for a family gathering and it was a huge hit!


Sausage-and-Lentil Stew Recipe

I made this a couple of nights ago and it was a huge hit! I’m guessing it would be even better for leftovers, but we ate it all, so who knows. You have got to try this one! If you don’t like lentils, orzo would be a great replacement. More

Tuscan Ham and Bean Soup (Crock Pot) Recipe


I love making soup! Here is a delicious recipe that I just prepped for tonight’s dinner. YUM. You can leave out the kale, spinach, or peas if you don’t like those ingredients. It will still be delicious.


How to Make Jam ~ Guest Post by Heather Christo of Heather Christo Cooks


My original plan was to make jam this weekend and then write a post about it. I’ve made jam several times, and I know the time and effort that goes into it. When I saw Heather’s beautiful post full of gorgeous pictures, I thought–what a perfect tutorial! With that in mind, I decided to focus on making jam and asked Heather (whose husband I know from high school) if I could share her beautiful post to show you how to make jam yourself. You can find out more about Heather at the end of this article.

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers Recipe

This is the easiest and yummiest appetizer on earth. I first tried the poppers at a friend’s house and fell in love.  Then I made them for a party last weekend and fell even more in love because they were so easy to make, delicious, and a big hit! I’ve already received several requests for the recipe.

Soft Pretzel Recipe (Eggless)

My sister-in-law, Patti, made pretzels with our girls last night while my husband and I were at the Pat Benatar concert. Yeah, funny concert. Anyways, Patti said the girls had a blast making unique shaped pretzels! This recipe is very kid friendly and tastes great too! More

Great Side Dish! Tomatoes Stuffed with Grilled Corn Salad Recipe

My friend, Julie Wells, sent me this recipe–delicious! Julie roasted the corn straight out of the fridge at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. She then shucked it and cut it off. Julie substituted feta for goat because some of her guests don’t do goat.  I personally like goat cheese better, but I love almost any recipe that includes bacon.  She also used more of the vinegar and oil than the recipe calls for. She warmed the tomatoes stuffed with grilled corn salad in the oven before serving, but it can also be served at room temperature. More
