Ultimate Recipe Swap: Time to Picnic

Picnics are fun affairs. I love to pack up a lunch and eat outdoors, and so do my children. One of my favorites is the impromptu affair with In-N-Out Burger. But, if I have time to plan, then here’s what we might pack – my recipe for A Great Picnic: tablecloth (and tablecloth weights or […]

Wild Boar Italian Sausage with Spicy Tomato Sauce

I was recently chosen to participate in Marx Food’s Blogger Recipe Challenge: Game Sausage Edition. I was sent four links of one of the sausages in their game sausage sampler. The type I was to receive was a mystery until the FedEx man delivered me my cute little, ice-packed, cooler-type package. We were waiting with […]

Oh In-N-Out Burger! How I Love Thee!

If you live somewhere other than California, Arizona, or Nevada, and have never eaten a Double-Double, I’m sorry. You’re so missing out. Get thee on a road trip and make sure you stop at In-N-Out Burger. It’s one of the fast food joints that I missed the most when we were in Kansas. And, yes, […]

What’s Cookin’ This Week

This month has been all about teeth. So far we’ve had 9 dental appointments and another 6 this week! Oh my stars! I am thankful for great insurance. I had the worst report – four cavities. I just about died. I only have four fillings at the moment, so I’ve just doubled the amount of […]

Another Indiana Jones Birthday Cake!

It’s birthday time around the FishHouse. We celebrate four birthdays in three weeks’ time which means lots of cake! But, remember? They like cake better than pie around here. So, it’s all good. My Littlest Man had originally requested a Pokemon cake. Then in the final hour he changed his mind and asked for a […]
