We have another busy week here leading up to Christmas, making the dinner hour hectic, but at least my daughterâ€™s college classes are over for the semester. Unfortunately more snow is coming starting tonight, so Iâ€™ve got to get all my shopping done today. Monday â€“ Southwestern Pork Stew with cornbread Tuesday â€“ Pasta with […]
I made this last week based on a recipe at allrecipes.com, my favorite online site for getting recipes. I had to change it up because we were out of some of the ingredients, but it turned out pretty good. The sauce made a nice addition to the meal, since pork can get kind of […]
I have a love/hate relationship with coupons, I love saving money, but I find using coupons confusing and time consuming. By the time I get done planning menus and making a grocery list the last thing I want to do is go through my coupons. Plus the coupon inserts we get never have all the […]
Late we have been having lots of soups, they just seem to go well this time of year. This is a recipe for a typical clam chowder, but with corn added in. I like the corn since it adds another taste to the chowder and makes it unique.

I have been reviewing products from Tropical Traditions for a while now, and the latest is Coconut Cream Concentrate. This is not a product I’ve used before, so I was curious to see how Coconut Cream Concentrate tasted. So when it first came I tried a spoonful right out of the jar, and it had […]
I cleaned out the freezer this weekend, so the menus this week are designed to use up all the things I had forgotten I had. There was lots of chicken in the freezer, so we are having that twice this week, even though it is not my husbandâ€™s favorite. But we should have a pretty […]
I made this for dinner on Halloween and it was delicious. I’m not a huge squash fan, so I like it when recipes add extra flavors so the squash flavor isn’t too overwhelming. We served this with pumpkin bread and it was an excellent and seasonal Halloween meal.
I recently received some Wilton products from a giveaway by Emilie at Baby Loving Mama, and one of the things included was a Cookie Candy Mold. Now this is something I probably never would have bought on my own, but since I had it I bought some candy melts so we could give it a […]
