Not Your Average Sausage Pizza and done in only 30 minutes!

As usual, when I’m testing recipe ideas, I’m asked multiple times, “what’s for dinner?”, to which I reply, “a new recipe.”  That, undoubtedly is met with, “what’s it called?”, to which I sadly snap, “It doesn’t have a name.” I don’t mean to be short with my husband and kids, but when I’m trying to …

Big Game Snacks: Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos

The BIG GAME is tomorrow night. Are you making snacks or like my husband suggested, picking up sushi take out? Seriously, he suggested picking up sushi take out and watching the game, so that I wouldn’t have to cook for a game that I cared nothing about.  I love that man! Well, regardless of my …

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 …

Preparing for Ireland…Dublin Coddle & Brown Soda Bread

Our first trip to Ireland was in 2012, for our 2nd anniversary. We’re returning this summer, but we’re planning a bit of a different trip.  Instead of touring the company through a tour group, we’ve rented a farm house/cottage in Graiguenamanagh, the Village of the Monks, and we’ll drive ourselves (and my parents) around the country. …

The New Beans & Rice

In the South, there are also certain food combinations that are “expected.”  If you have bbq, then you have baked beans.  If you have fried chicken, you have mashed potatoes.  If you have ice tea, it’s gonna be sweet!  You get the idea… Anyway, beans are no different.  If a Southerner has beans, they’re going …
