one pan pasta…perfect for tonight

Summer is definitely here in SE Texas and summer hasn’t even officially started yet.  Along with a large part of the country out temps are in the 90’s and feel like the 100’s. When the weather is like this the last thing I want to do is have the oven …

slow cooker ranch yumminess

Just because it is summer doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the best of all your slow cooker has to bring you.  I mean what is better than being out all day playing (or working) and coming home to dinner being 90% done and knowing that everyone is going to love …

zucchini for everyone

I have found that zucchini is one of those veggies that people either love or not love…but I have found a solution with these zucchini spears. OK I know you maybe asking yourself…a spear for dinner made out of zucchini?  Yes, I made spears made out of zucchini coated in …

caramel makes me happy

I LOVE caramel anything really.  I love it in my coffee, I love it on ice cream, I love it swirled into cakes and I especially love it with brownies.  Over time I have made a couple of caramel brownie recipes (like this one)  but this new recipe is The Hubby’s …

mashin’ up a sweet tater

A sweet tater (or potato if your not my dad) is God’s gift to the land of yummy starches…at least in my opinion.  I just love the bit of sweet (or sometimes a lot of sweet) and the bright orange color and of course all the delicious dishes you can make …

simple salmon = delicious

As I have said before simple really is sometimes the best way to go…and this simple salmon is definitely the best I have had in a while.   The Hubby and I love salmon and we have had many different ways.  Some with sauces, such as this Lemon Caper Salmon, …

one pan & done alfredo

Who doesn’t love a one pan meal…I mean c’mon it comes together with just a few steps and clean-up is super fast making this a perfect dinner option for a busy day. Over the years I made my fair share of one pan meals like this one pan spaghetti and this …
