Ultimate Grilled Cheese

Many of you know that I’m originally from Wisconsin and now living in Minnesota…roughly translated means that cheese will still reign supreme and when I find a recipe that embodies multiple cheeses, we are trying it.   I say all of this in jest because the others in home NEVER say no to anything related to…

Accidental Leek Tart

There is a reason that this is called the ‘Accidental’ Leek Tart.  Let me tell you a story of our Easter holiday in Wisconsin this year.  It was to be an Easter / two birthday celebration.  The dinner included a fantastic meal and the whole weekend included much laughter. In planning the meal with my…

The Best Easter Ham Ever!!!

Who is ready for Easter next weekend???  If you are not, here is something that can help and it’s easy  There has been one style ham that we have made in my family forever!  It has been made in the oven along with using a slow cooker.  I love the slow cooker style because then…

Cactus Juice

Closer to a decade ago, my cousin who has lived in Denmark my entire grown up life, came to the small town of T-hawk with his family (and pretty much the rest of our family) for the Fourth of July.  Besides all of the seriously fun times everyone had together, he also brought with him…

Artichoke, Olive & Feta Pasta Salad

This is my nod to desiring spring to be here soon.  Looking for light and fun things to make that will help along a warmer season.  I know that it isn’t spring yet because there is still snow on the ground and it is much colder outside than you would think by looking at the…

Chicken Meatballs & Spaghetti

Normally, when I think meatballs, I think meat – good ol’ grade a beef.   Usually mixed with marinara sauce and noodles.  But meatballs aren’t just for hamburger anymore and this tasty chicken variation really proves that.  The combination of the leaner ground chicken, flavorful pizza sauce and fresh gooeyness of the mozzarella cheese creates…

Easy Chicken Dumpling Soup

I consider this a great cheater recipe.  One that can easily be made on a weeknight and still be in bed in time for a good night sleep.  The base is going to be the same as other chicken soups, but the dumpling is really the cheater part of it.  Instead of making your own…

Pop Overs

Nothing is more wonderful on a Saturday morning than coming downstairs to the smell of some sort of dough cooking in the oven and coffee ready to go.  This wonderful thing happens because there is another person that makes your house a home and that person loves to work on breakfast items.   There was a…

Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitoes

SOOOO good!  Like the perfect combo taco, burrito, chimichanga…this dinner was super tasty!  My favorite part is everything that you can put on top of these crunchy, creamy dinner delights.  More cheese, more salsa, lettuce, refried beans, hot sauce.  Yum! Yum!  Just seeing the pictures of this makes me want to make them again.  Maybe…

Cheesy Homemade Garlic Bread

Life moves really fast sometimes – where it becomes so easy for us to buy all of the pre-made frozen garlic bread and just cook that up whenever pasta is on the menu.  This recipe may take a few minutes longer than it’s frozen counterpart, but it is super easy and definitely a fresher option….
