We are getting our first real snow of the season. I’m excited because it’s December and so far this year, we’ve had wonderful fall weather and the start of a very mild winter. Now I probably just jinxed us all and we’ll be stuck in tunnels of snow like the famous midwestern blizzard of 1978 … More Chicken Pot Pie Soup – bring on the snow!
My husband and I were out on little date night last month. We decided to go to a local brewery pub downtown. The food and beer were fantastic. The service – not so much. But, we still had a great time. I ordered a grilled cheese that came all decked out with a pesto on … More Pesto Bacon Grilled Cheese – You’re going to want to make this!
My family likes to put in their requests for things they would like me to make. Maybe it’s that tasty spaghetti and meatballs that my youngest requests almost every day.

With back to school starting, I know I’m not alone when a quick, … More More Please! Repost of BBQ Chicken Wraps (Quick Meal with a Whole Lot of YUM!)
I remember when I was little sometimes while flipping through the channels on the TV, we’d come across this older man in usually a denim shirt that carried a very strong Cajun accent.

One meal that I can always throw together at the last-minute at any moment is Taco Soup. It’s hearty and flavorful and is basically a taco poured into a soup so you can’t go wrong there.
