You’ve got an Instant Pot, now what? I remember feeling like that when I first got mine, too. So excited to finally have this amazing kitchen tool! No clue how to use it. Maybe a little afraid. Because PRESSURE, folks. That stuff can be dangerous.
Hot weather leaves you wanting something cold to eat with minimal effort, right? You sure don’t want to be slaving over a hot stove when satan’s armpit is hovering over your area. Easy, cold salads are hot summer weather necessities! If you get tired of egg salads, tuna salads, chicken salads, or ham salads there’s probably a couple of reasons why.
My love of spicy hotness began during one harrowing ride down an Arizona mountain. We were torpedoing down some mountain on our way back from visiting the Grand Canyon. It was dark. There was sleet coming down. And there were times we were doing 120 miles per hour…with my hubby riding the brake. It was insane. I didn’t look outside. I didn’t look at the speedometer. I kept my eyes… Continue Reading
We recently went on a motorcycle ride with our “gang” and stopped to eat at a lakeside restaurant that won Best Burger in that particular county this year. Hubby had stopped there to eat one day and just completely raved about their Patty Melt. Since burgers are one of my favorite foods, I was excited to try this “famous” burger. Fortunately they had more options to choose from than just Patty… Continue Reading
Following recipes is not my usual cooking style – I like to just throw things together. This is something I made last night with chicken, in spite of feeling rather uninspired I loved how it turned out. Seasoned simply (or as elaborately as you like), it comes together quickly. Serve with a green salad if you like or some fresh fruit and you have a delicious summer meal. Start with… Continue Reading
If you love the way a bird turns out in those plastic oven bags, but wish there was an alternative then I’m here to make that wish come true for you. Plastics can impart unhealthy chemicals into foods, so if you’ve gone to the trouble to source local, pastured, organic poultry you don’t want to ruin it with petrochemicals right? Today, I’m sharing how I make delicious, moist, tender and flavorful… Continue Reading

C. Dolch Gluten Free Flour pizza crust recipe. I really like that pizza crust…it’s not 100% like the “real” stuff…there’s no way, really, to get that chewy-ness in a gluten… Continue Reading
A very dear friend of mine recently introduced me to “perpetual broth (or stock or soup…).” I was intrigued by the idea, but wasn’t sure if I would use enough broth to make it worthwhile. Turns out, it’s a magnificent kitchen tool to have on hand. Yes, I said tool. 5. anything used as a means of accomplishing a task or purpose (dictionary.com) In the case of the modern housewife… Continue Reading
The switch to DST (Dumb Stupid Time in my book) always leaves me off-kilter for basically the entire 8 months of this ridiculous practice. So, my crockpot and I continue our love affair…only changing things up a bit from chili, soups and stews. Tonight, it’s an adaptation of a recipe I found on Food.com called by the same name…Mexicali Chicken and Cheese Sandwiches. My DST stupor has left me too… Continue Reading
