Chicken Fajitas (for a crowd)

Chicken Fajitas (for a crowd)

When we travel I like to eat out, but honestly it gets to be a bit much especially when traveling with a crowd, so usually I will cook half of the meals in and the other half we will eat out.  Vacation meals are never fussy.  A protein, veggie, maybe a salad and bread….always bread. […]

Shepherd Pie

Shepherds Pie

The first time I ever had Shepherds Pie was on our honeymoon in Burlington Vermont at a little brew pub.  It was heavenly.  The next time I partook of this tasty one dish meal was in Ireland, six months pregnant on a bus tour through the British Isles, this time my shepherds pie was not so […]

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Beans

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Beans

We love the Spicy Black Bean Dip from Trader Joes.  The problem is the closest TJ’s is 3 hours away on a good driving day.  Hit traffic or bad weather and you’re looking at 4 hours to Detroit.  I usually stock up when I go, or when friends make the pilgrimage they know to grab […]

Sriracha Country BBQ Ribs

Sriracha Country BBQ Ribs

I love nothing more than a easy versatile recipe!  Sriracha Country BBQ Ribs can be served as a rustic meal,  or shredded for taco’s and sandwiches.  Any one of the three is sure to satisfy! Country ribs are a meatier rib,  cut from the rib end of the pork loin.  They are best when cooked […]

Boiled Dinner ~ a.k.a. corned beef and cabbage

Boiled Dinner ~ a.k.a. Corned Beef and Cabbage

Mouthwatering tender corned beef accompanied by cabbage, potatoes, and carrots.  The wonderful aroma of this meal  while it’s cooking is deliciously comforting. I grew up on “boiled dinner”.  It’s one of my dad’s favorite meals.  It’ sounds so ho-hum, but honestly it’s pure comfort  food.  It’s one of the dinners, from my youth, that I […]

Pepper Steak

Pepper Steak

Hello…how are you?  Is this winter weather getting you down?  Don’t get me wrong, the snow is pretty and all, and I am immensely thankful for heat and coats and cupboards full of blankets….but dang is Spring ever going to get here?! Do you find that it’s easier to get dinner on the table during […]

Chevre Roasted Vegetable Salad

Chevre Roasted Vegetable Salad

I am always coming home from eating out and trying to recreate whatever fabulousness it was that I just ate.  Do you ever do that?  One of my favorite restaurants in Grand Rapids is Marie Catribs, for many, many reasons, far too many to count.  This salad has been on the menu, I dare say, […]

Mexican Turkey Meatball Soup

  Mexican Turkey Meatball Soup is everything I love in a soup!  Spicy and full of healthy vegetables not to mention the surprise of  tasty bite sized little turkey meatballs.  This light but hearty soup is sure to hit the spot!  Twenty plus inches of snowfall, high winds,  sub-zero temps, three consecutive days off from […]
