Macaroon Crunch Pie

I first had this pie one summer visiting my cousins in South Dakota. It was served at a cousin’s baby shower. I don’t know how old her “baby” is but I’m guessing that I was fifteen or sixteen which makes my copy of the recipe about twenty years old. Ouch! Am I really that old? […]

Taco Soup Recipe

Taco Soup | LifeasMOM.com

Taco Soup is an easy-to-prepare dish, so easy even a 5-year old can do it. And it tastes great when you want a bowl of red. The following Taco Soup is a FishBoy favorite. They absolutely love it! And even though it’s summer time and hot and humid and buggy and sticky, I keep getting […]

Yummy Raspberry Muffins

In case you’re inspired to bake muffins here is one of my all-time favorites. It’s from my stained and tattered (as all good cookbooks should be) copy of All the Best Muffins and Quick Breads by Joie Warner. I originally posted the recipe “straightup” before I realized that that wasn’t the appropriate way to share recipes. Here […]

Toolin’ Up Tuesday: The Immortal Crockpot

Yeah, I know the jokes abound about the Crockpot. It seems that people everywhere have left theirs to languish in the cupboard. Not so at my house. In fact, I own three: 1.5 Qt, 2.5 Qt (round) and 6.5 QT (oval). There are a number of other sizes available as well, including 3.5 Qt and […]

Salade Nicoise

Jenn@FrugalUpstate is hosting a frugal foods series. This week features canned tuna. Yeah, that doesn’t sound too exciting on the face of it. At least not for me, since my kids refused tuna casserole last year. It was the first time in recent memory where I think we had an absolute revolt on our hands. […]

Well, there are lots of perks – namely our children, and the privilege of escorting them from infancy to adulthood. To watch them grow and change and learn is […]

La Salsa!

2008-June-033

Salsa is a regular staple in my refrigerator. Since my husband and I both grew up in Southern California, we’ve tasted some mighty fine salsas in our time. Years ago when we moved to one income, I realized that I couldn’t spend $4-6 every week on fresh salsa from the store. Nor could I continue […]
