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

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 […]

No Kid Hungry #sharemyplate

#sharemyplate

  I came across this while thumbing through my Instagram feed yesterday,  I just had to share it with you.  The fact that there are children, within a stones throw of me and my family, that don’t spend time around the dinner table with others simply because there’s nothing for them to eat is devastating […]
