Pomegranate Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Green Apple Salad

Pomegranate Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Green Apple Salad

I love fresh ingredients–the more, the merrier.  Despite the  trend over the past several years to use few ingredients when cooking, I’ve resisted the urge to jump on that bland food bandwagon. The only five-ingredient recipe that I like is for a cheeseburger–ground beef, salt, pepper, cheese and a bun. These five ingredients work well together and […]

Braised Pork with Sauteed Onions and Apples

I love Sundays when I don’t have anything going on. After church, I can just chill at the house and enjoy my day watching an NCIS marathon on USA Network. (I can’t get enough of that Leroy Jethro Gibbs.) Or I’ll cut out coupons and organize them in my binder.  (I’ve become really lazy with couponing. Now I […]

I am constantly telling my sons not to drink juice around the computer. Everyday I fuss, “This computer is not a toy.  You need to pay attention to what you’re doing…” Blah! Blah! Blah!

Sausage Pancake Lollipops

I’ve been wanting to try the recipe for sausage pancakes-on-sticks ever since I saw them on The Pioneer Woman a couple of weeks ago. I hardly ever get to watch cooking shows on the weekend because I have two boys who have a better social life than mine. So this was a special treat for […]

I love it when I find everything I need for dinner in my pantry and freezer, and I don’t have to make a trip to the grocery store.  Don’t get me wrong, grocery shopping is probably my favorite passtime. I love going early in the morning when it’s just me and the staff, and I […]
