I recently got a job as a nanny to two ADORABLE two-year-olds. They are just about the cutest twins you’ll ever see and sometimes I can’t believe I get to play with them all day. It’s pretty much the best job ever. But every job has its challenges. Mine is vegetables. Getting toddlers to eat […]
Am I the only cook on the planet who hasn’t heard of Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole? Apparently, when it comes to church food Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole has been a hit for a long, long time! My friend, Lila, made this casserole for a Community Bible Study fellowship lunch this spring. At first, I thought I […]
Today we are happy to have Monica Henin from Addonkitchen as our guest blogger. Thank you, Monica! Having an in-house grill is always great because it allows a person to cook scrumptious food at will. Moreover, grilling is fun, especially for those who have an immense love for cooking. Placing a juicy piece of meat […]
I was never big on New Year’s resolutions until about two years ago. Gross as it may be, I used to only floss my teeth right before going to the dentist for a cleaning. I would inevitably get the speech of “you should floss regularly for healthy blah blah blah.” But one day I actually listened […]
This recipe for hot chicken salad reminds me so much of my new favorite veggie casserole! Before you think I’ve mixed up my fowl and my veggies let me explain. Every once in a while I eat something that I just can’t get enough of. It is usually when lots of people are around and […]
Today I was given a beautiful gift. The gift of time. For many of us our daily calendars fill up with running from place to place. From task to task. UP and out of the house early, in and out of the car, home again and then off to a meeting or the grocery store! […]
Growing up in Nebraska, chicken and noodles was a favorite meal of mine. My sous-chef dish-washing would buy a “whole chicken in a can”. At that time, there was no such thing as fresh deli rotisserie chicken, like we can buy now in most grocery stores, Sam’s or Costco. I remember when mom would open […]
This morning I woke up early and headed to the kitchen. All week I have tried to get time to cook up the last of the fall apples. Now was the moment. I sliced and chunked apples into a big pot, added a splash of apple cider and let them simmer.
UPDATE! My friend Maribeth says she chopped up cooked chicken breast to add to the dish and made a main dish meal out of it. She also added a sprinkling of dry ranch dressing to the mayonnaise before mixing up. I’m making this again with chicken! YUM! (I can imagine chopped ham also making a […]
This recipe is all over Facebook and quite a few websites including Food.com. The first recipe I saw called for plain Greek yogurt as the main ingredient. However, my sous-chef dish-washing mom is not a yogurt fan and so when I saw the same recipe made with mayonnaise, I knew that would be for us.
