Let’s Get Grilling

Summer foods are my favorite.  I love all of the fresh fruits and veggies, and I love grilling. Nothing says summer to me like a nice juicy steak fresh off the grill with a big salad, some sides, and something strawberry for dessert. Just in time for Father’s Day, my blog friends and I have come up with some yummy… Read more »

Make sure you check out the links below! This post is part of a Father’s Day Grilling Round-Up with some of my favorite food bloggers.  Growing up, my father always had a huge garden.

Making your own chicken broth is easier than you think.  It requires little effort, minimal skills, and just a few ingredients.  The main consideration when making broth is time.  You have to make sure you allow yourself at least four hours…maybe five.

The Perfect Roasted Chicken

I have been wanting to make a roasted chicken for a long time, but for some reason I have always been very intimidated by the process.  Not really sure what it is.  Maybe it’s because of the threat of salmonella should I not cook the chicken completely. I had seen a few pins for roasted chicken on Pinterest.  I even… Read more »

How to Make the Perfect Two Egg Omelet

Omelets are a pretty basic thing to make.  That is why it is so surprising that I didn’t start making them until well in to adulthood.  In the past year or so I have been trying to teach Tiny Dancer how to make those basic things. She now has most breakfast foods, and a few desserts, down pat.  I wanted… Read more »

Nachos to Go

Deborah Ward   August 31, 2015   23 Comments on Nachos to Go

This is not a new concept or even an original one.  I can’t be crowned a culinary genius.  However, it is new to us, and it made my family really happy.  Nachos to Go, walking taco, whatever you want to call it…they’re fun. We all had a blast eating them.  I think the fact that it was so different from… Read more »

Curry Chicken Salad

For as long as I can remember my mother has made chicken salad using curry.  As a child I thought this was the ultimate torture.  I hated the taste of curry.  However, as I grew, so did my taste buds.  I now love anything made with curry.  Especially my mom’s chicken salad. As paybacks though, my daughter thinks I am… Read more »

Cactus Quesadilla

 Yeah, you read that right.  Cactus quesadillas.  I first heard about cooking the paddles of the Opuntia cactus a few years ago.  Unfortunately, my part of the world (at the time) did not offer such delicacies.  I remember my mom and I talking about how much we’d like to try it, if only we could find some. Fast forward to… Read more »
