Spicy Pork Tenderloin & Flavor Full Sides

My husband is a meat and potatoes man. Whenever I do meatless Mondays, he tries to be such a trooper. But when you’ve been married as long as I have, you can read your spouse’s mind without him saying a single word. My husband hated veggies when he was growing up and when we got […]

Game Day Snack Ideas

Thanks to Farm Rich for sponsoring this post.  All opinions are my own.  Fall is just around the corner and all thoughts turn to  . . . football.  I’ve enjoyed the game of football since I was a little girl.  I was a cheerleader from 1st grade through high school and I actually know the […]

Mini Sausage, Egg & Waffle Sandwiches

Thanks to Johnsonville for providing the delicious sausage for this post!  All opinions are my own. I’m always searching for new breakfast ideas that are easy, quick and tasty.  And, since my family prefers sausage links to sausage patties (insert eye roll) I created mini sausage, egg & waffle sandwiches with Johnsonville original sausage links […]

All opinions are mine alone. #EverydayEffortless #CollectiveBias Summer is my favorite season except when it comes to cooking.  Don’t get me wrong, you know I love to cook, but it’s way too hot to be spending quality time with my stove. Once summer […]

Easter Menu

Easter is neck and neck with Christmas in terms of being my favorite holiday.  And why not?  These two celebrations represent the birth and later, the death, burial and resurrection of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! And, of course, the song “Celebrate” is running through my mind because you know I have a song […]


Who doesn’t love BLT’s (bacon, lettuce and tomato)?  I guarantee you will get your BLT fix with this pie, because it includes onion and cheese, as well!  It’s a one dish dinner – my kind of weeknight cooking! I recommend using fresh, home-grown (or farmer’s market) tomatoes in this BLT pie.  Store bought just doesn’t […]

20 Minute Meatloaf

I had never been much of a meatloaf girl until I found this 20 Minute Meatloaf recipe many years ago!  It quickly became a favorite at my house and I completely changed how I felt about meatloaf. Yes, I realize it’s summer and we hate to heat up our kitchens down here in the south, […]

Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs

  I found this slow cooker barbecue ribs recipe a while back (can’t remember where) and made them a few days ago.  They were quickly demolished by the family and everyone liked them, including the grandkids. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender and the recipe was so, so easy.   And according to the huge empty platter, […]

Beef Brisket & Chocolate Ganache

Need an easy meal to serve a crowd? My beef brisket & chocolate ganache is the way to go!  Beef Brisket (not to be confused with corned beef brisket) is your man, er, main dish!  And no, you don’t need a smoker to cook it!  Hang on, the Chocolate Ganache is for dessert – although I […]
