Carrot Vindaloo Soup

This was a surprise victory.  My husband said it was the best carrot soup he’s ever had.  Do you ever have a little bit of curry left over?  Not enough for lunch, but enough that you want to do something with it?  Well that is what happened to me and it turned out great!

Chicken Chili

I created this recipe for a chili cookoff a few years back. It didn’t win (who were those judges anway?? ;)), but it has since become a go to dinner for me especially when I need to feed a crowd or bring a meal to a neighbor. It comes together pretty quickly and I usually have the ingredients in my pantry/fridge. It’s good on its  ...

Bacon, Tomato, and Mayo

This was so simple and good. I really miss BLT’s since I stopped eating much bread. I’ve used a lettuce leaf as the bread in the past, but today I just sliced some yummy tomatoes from the garden, sprinkled on salt and pepper, dabbed a bit of mayonnaise and then placed a piece or two of bacon on each slice. You could dress them up a  ...

Tomato Time

My awesome in-laws put up 190 quarts of tomatoes and gave us six cases!  Canning tomatoes in late summer is a tradition and good family time.  We only got there for the last 30 quarts, but I’m glad my kids got to participate.  A couple more seasons and they will feel confident they can do it when they are grown. We use a lot of these  ...

Popovers

We made these lovely popovers for a very special Sunday breakfast and had them with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. I don’t think it really gets any better than this. Spencer’s family has been making popovers for generations, so he came with the pan in the picture. I have also made them using a muffin tin and they turn out  ...
