I'm thrilled to share a recipe from Karen because I have a theory (which has been proven true time and time again, so I'm about to just start calling it a fact) that good people make the best food. Now if my theory/fact is right, that means Karen's food is PHENOMENAL. Seriously. She is one of the kindest ... Continue Reading

Loose Meat Sandwiches

loose meat sandwiches

These are the sandwiches I talked about at the end of my video yesterday.  This is one of those recipes you just have to try. Martha Staton emailed me when I shared a special email address with my subscribers and asked if I had the recipe to Maid-Rite or Alley Canteen burgers like she grew up on in Iowa. But wouldn't you know, I have never stepped foot in Iowa and had no idea what she was talking ... Continue Reading

Chicken Pecan Fettuccine – And How I Met My Husband

chicken fetuccini

So I asked on Facebook this morning if anyone had any suggestions on things they'd like me to write about and I got some great ideas, thank you! One of them was a lady who wanted to know how my husband and I met. I replied that how we met was so bad that we usually lie to people about it. Not embellish, but flat out lie, so I thought it might be a good story to tell. I think some of what ... Continue Reading

Honest To Goodness, Old Fashioned Bread Pudding

Honest To Goodness, Old Fashioned Bread Pudding

Bread pudding to me is like brownies, I've never met one that I didn't like. Having said that, though, if you've never had a good, old fashioned, honest to goodness bread pudding made from buttermilk biscuits, you've never had a real, honest to goodness old fashioned bread pudding. I just had to pause in my typing and close my eyes for a moment  of silence to pray for those who have never had ... Continue Reading
