Moroccan Spiced Chicken Meatball Stew

Several years ago, I noticed that in addition to ground turkey and ground pork, my local supermarket was carrying ground chicken.  Since I RARELY ever cook ground beef, this was a win for me.  Then, when I stumbled across a recipe for chicken meatballs on Pinterest, it was a Win-Win!  The basic meatball recipe is …

Granny’s Sunday Sausage Casserole

After a weekend of below freezing wind chill, a week at the county fair, and 2 days of rain, I desperately needed warm comfort food…FAST! I love soup, but sometimes, soup, stew, and chili are over-done.  For whatever reason, when it turns the slightest bit cold, everyone (myself included) runs to the store to get chili-making …

Moerlein Lager House & Pork & Tomatillo Stew

Forget the Cookies & Ornaments…Round 2

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post about holiday gifts for teachers, the boys and I have been doing this for 11+ years, and I don’t think we’ve ever repeated a project.  Several people have mentioned having teachers who were diabetic, and as a diabetic, I can relate.  We are inundated by sugary sweets during the …

Ean’s Award Winning Cake…Chocolate-Peanut Butter Explosion

As previously mentioned today, boys should be taught to cook.  Boys should, not only be able to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but they should also be able to prepare dessert. When Ean first decided that he wanted to bake a cake for 4-H, I asked him to decide the flavor and style.  Then, I …

Boys Can Cook Too!

Maybe it’s because I grew up with a brother who could, and still can, cook anything he wants or needs.  Maybe it’s because I cook, and I only have sons. Either way, I have a firm belief that both of my boys should learn to cook and be comfortable in a kitchen.  Sadly, too many …
