IMO Super Bowl Food Should Be Simple, But Good!!
In a few days, super bowl fever will be here again. Congratulations and good luck to both teams, I have no favorite! There are two things that always surround the excitement on that day, the game, of course, and the food! In my opinion, the food should be simple, easy to eat and delicious. I have made many fancy dishes through the years, believe me, and as my family got smaller and smaller my needs got much simpler. This year with Covid, I am sure the same is true for a lot o
Tortellini Veggie Soup! My Soup Pet Peeve, And Soup 101!!
We love soup in our family and especially in the winter eat a lot of it. When eating out, of which we haven't done since Covid, I always had to have a cup of soup no matter what. One of my favorite soups is a tortellini soup. Now here is my problem with soups on restaurant menus. To me, anyway, the first ingredient listed is the ingredient there should be more of, after all, isn't that the theory on packaged items in the grocery store? Isn't that why you are paying the extra
Breakfast, Lunch, Brunch, Dinner Sweet Potatoes And Ham!! YUM!!

1 Pkg. Ground Turkey Or Beef, 1 Pkg. Mushrooms, 2 Dishes, Lots Of Meals!! Pre Prep Ideas?
Oven 350 Time 18-20 minutes Today I was working with a package of ground turkey and a package of my favorite baby bella mushrooms. First let me say, I buy the whole, wipe good with a damp paper towel and slice my own. I do not trust the cleaning on the precut or my own cleaning of the precut, lots of extra work there. Little extra work but better to be safe than sorry. JMO. I was wanting to stretch them both, as we try right now to shop less, something simple, and something t
Beet Burger? For This Beet Lover, Yes! Homemade Honey Walnut Cream Cheese? Again, Yes!
First, I would like to say hello and welcome aboard to our newest member to my blog. Today I was cruising around my supermarket trying to decide on what to make, what to buy, and what's the best bang for my buck as they say!!

Baked Salmon Cakes With Jim's Favorite Dressing/Sauce, Read On!
First of all, I would like to say welcome to our newest joiner to my blog. Today I had a nice piece of fresh salmon to work with and had been wanting a salmon cake or burger of some kind. I had a mac and cheese in the oven, and sticking to my no oven going for one item, decided on baking the salmon and then making baked salmon cakes. For this recipe you can use fresh precooked, leftover salmon or a large can of salmon, or a couple small as long as it is around 1 3/4 cups of
Another Meal? Any Ideas? Easy And Quick? Sure Read On!!
Since the start of Covid restrictions and many of us having been forced for one reason or another to cook more at home, the common denominators in questions and or comments are pretty much the same. The biggest problem most are experiencing is what to make. After months and months of thinking of meals we have run out of ideas. To go along with this lack of ideas is the desire for something quick and easy and maybe something that pantry items can contribute to. Even leftovers
Quick Coconut, Pumpkin, Chic Pea Curry, Not Traditional, But Worth A Try!!!
Happy New Year every one! I hope this means bigger and better things are on the way for us all in 2021! Also, thank you all for your comments and messages to date!! I am a huge fan of chick peas or garbanzo beans. I do have another recipe on here on how to cook from scratch, and a mashed chick pea spread. I sometimes cook my own from scratch when I can find them or take the time to order some, but I also use well rinsed canned quite often. I also love curry and I also am a
