It's Sibling Dinner time again! I try to schedule a Sibling Dinner once per month so that we can get together with my husband's siblings (he's the oldest of 7) and their significant others and babies. It's hard to decide on a date sometimes as everyone is busy whether they are in high school, college, [...]

Smothered Ham and Cheese Chicken Breasts

By |August 6th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free|

I made up this recipe yesterday. I'm sure there are variations of it, but this is something I threw together in a pinch (as I do a lot of my recipes, as you will soon notice) with ingredients I had on-hand. One of my biggest pet peeves is wasting food, especially perishables. There are too [...]

Marinated Garden Cucumbers

Berry Sorbet

By |July 27th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Party Food, Vegan|

My husband and I, it seems, are always in the mood for "something sweet". I'm not great at keeping the house stocked with sweet treats. I'm more of a salt lover and if we ever do buy anything sweet my habit is to put it in the freezer to discourage ourselves from eating it. That [...]
