Each sport has it’s own special type of fan.  Whether it’s hockey, soccer, baseball, basketball, or football, fans show their love for the game in such unique ways.  There is one fan trait that all sports share, the fan that thinks they can ref, coach or play the game better than the actual team.  If you’ve ever been to any sporting event, you know exactly what I’m talking about.  We’ve all seen the guys (and women too) who spring to their feet as soon as a whistle is blown.  They wave their arms wildly and scream so … Continue reading →

This orange chicken recipe is cooked simply in the slow cooker. The rich maple sauce keeps the chicken tender and succulent!

Maple Orange Chicken Recipe

This easy orange chicken recipe is slow cooked to perfection!  The oranges intensify the sweet maple sauce that surrounds the succulent chicken.    Is there anything less rewarding than jumping into a pile of leaves?  I was watching my kids and their friends as they played in the leaves in the backyard.  They worked so hard raking up every single leaf in the yard.  At first they raked with zeal.  The anticipation of the big jump was … Continue reading →

Sauerkraut crowns a hot, sliced brat for a burger that is out of this world! My mom is a health nut (emphasis on nut).  She loves her herbal and homeopathic remedies.  There is nothing wrong with those things, I just don't live by them.  My mom drags my dad to her favorite natural food store each week to seek out the latest and greatest herbal supplement that will prevent high cholesterol, high blood pressure, arthritis, dementia, bad moods, … Continue reading →

Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate Recipe

This simple hot chocolate recipe is silky, smooth and full of spice.  It's the best way to keep the chill of fall at bay.   I am the world’s nerdiest airplane traveler.  I'm the kind of person who has to double check everything.  The flight number, the flight time, the gate, my seat, my luggage, everything.  Then I go back and triple check everything.  I like knowing everything is as it should be. I used to be terrified of flying.  Now I … Continue reading →

Tuna Noodle Casserole

The "new" tuna noodle casserole!  This version is cheesy, creamy, sophisticated and satisfying! This post is a little different.  After spending a few days in Iowa looking at fields of corn (more on that later), I thought it would be a good time to talk produce!  Fall has so many wonderful flavors that you have to experience.  I’m not just talking about pumpkins and apples.  Yes, those are delicious in their right, but this season offers so … Continue reading →

Pumpkin butter is used as a filling for these bite sized puff pastry treats! So quick and easy to put together. You may love these more than pie!

Pumpkin Butter Dessert Ravioli

Sweet little pumpkin butter ravioli are little bites of pie tucked into flaky puff pastry! You know what was going through my head as I was making these pumpkin ravioli?  It wasn’t the sweet pumpkin butter filling, or the flaky pastry, or even how incredibly simple this dessert was to put together.  Instead I was thinking about my favorite Halloween costume ever.  I can still picture it.  I was Bat Girl and I was spectacular. I vividly recall … Continue reading →

Cheese Filled Egg Roll Recipe

This egg roll recipe is a keeper!  No it’s not your traditional egg roll.  This one is filled with gooey melted cheese!  Perfect game day eats! In my single days, the only sport I would watch is Major League Baseball.  And even then, I’d only watch the Cincinnati Reds.  I had to support the home team right?  Occasionally I’d flip on the television on a Sunday afternoon if I had nothing else to do.  However, Sunday's were not good tv days … Continue reading →

4 slices cinnamon bread 2 teaspoons butter 1 cup apple pie filling ¼ cup whipped peanut butter 2 tablespoons whipped cream cheese

Grilled Apple Pie & Peanut Butter Sandwich

Apple pie filled peanut butter sandwich just might make you rethink jelly!  In college, I once saw a friend dip his peanut butter toast into his bowl of chili.  It wasn’t a one dunk just to see how it tastes sort of thing.  He was literally scooping up the chili with the peanut butter toast.  I looked on in horror and amazement.  That's what cornbread is for, not peanut butter!  So weird. Now I watch my husband do something equally … Continue reading →

Taco Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes meet tacos in this easy family pleasing meal!  Get your bibs ready! Think back to your school lunches.  Tostadas, pizzas, cheeseburgers, fish sticks, tater tots and sloppy joes.  I loved sloppy joe day.  It wasn't quite a burger, more like chili in a bun.  It was messy and totally fun to eat.  The best day ever was when I had sloppy joes at school and then mom served them up at home! Back then, sloppy joes were strictly made … Continue reading →
