Thankfully, the switch from peanut butter {legumes} to almond butter went smoothly so I was still able to make one of her favorites. Ingredients: ○● Organic dried cranberries ○● Organic almond butter ○● Organic celery Directions: {I’m […]...

Store-bought vanilla usually contains sugars and is diluted with water. And that is *pure* vanilla extract. Imitation vanilla is a whole ‘nother story. Needless to say, I was surprised and a bit irked when I read the ingredients on the back of my bottle of “pure” vanilla extract. That is when I began home-brewing vanilla […]...

#CountryCrockStars Casseroles have always been a big part of my life. Now, this may seem silly to some, but my mom could cook like the dickens and when she made her casseroles for dinner, they were always a big hit.

I love breakfast. Since my family and I have cut out grains entirely {among other things}, I have to get pretty creative in the morning to break the monotony of eggs. I experimented a bit yesterday and gave the typical Eggs in a Nest a fresh look. Perfect for gluten intolerant or celiac folks or […]...

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is holiday baking. I have the fondest memories of standing in a chair beside my mother when I was little, and creating cookie masterpieces to give to friends. My mom’s cookies were the best…seriously. My daughter and I spent many December days doing the […]...

With the holidays right around the corner, I am excited for the food! We usually go to my dad’s house to eat and he does a lot of the cooking. I am hoping that this year I can possibly go over and help, maybe even make a new dish or two. With the “Dadgum That’s […]...

Old London When I think of appetizers, I honestly do not think of Melba snacks. Sure they are really tasty, but what can you do with them other than munch on them? Well quite a bit apparently! I was sent a wonderful assortment of Old London Melba Snacks and Bagel Chips, and even though I […]...

I have used Nakano Rice Vinegar for years. I primarily use it when I am making teriyaki sauce or sometimes in salads. I did not know until recently, however, that they had more flavors than just the regular rice vinegar. Boy have I been missing out! There is a whole line of flavored Nakano Seasoned […]...

There have been a few restaurants that I have been to that have Lime flavored tortilla chips. I am smitten with these, and needless to say, I was thrilled to learn that Tostitos now makes these as well! These aren’t regular, thicker tortilla chips either – they are the light, crispy ones. With summertime almost […]...

Ever since I was little, I have adored corn on the cob. Of course I also loved canned and frozen corn, but there is something extra special about fresh corn on the cob. There are so many options for cooking it too – it can be boiled, grilled or baked. I have been experimenting with […]...

My son often drinks milk alternatives, and I have on occasion as well.  I have never tried cooking with these products before, as I somehow thought that it wouldn’t work the same as milk in a recipe.  Boy, was I wrong! I was asked to create a recipe using Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almond milk, […]...

Chicken Mole Enchiladas I think Mole Sauce is one of those things that you either like, don’t like or haven’t tried yet. The first time I was introduced to it, I was slightly frightened. In case you aren’t familiar with mole (pronounced MO-LAY), it is a sauce made with peppers, chocolate and a few other […]...
