Carrot Apple Salad

  First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I trust you all had a great holiday season, spending time with family & friends. We had our first snow storm of the winter on the 25th & 26th. Perfect timing, huh? Sheesh! So, some Christmas gatherings had to be rescheduled, but it all worked out. I also want […]

Gluten Free Onion Rings

Onion rings and I go way back. I remember being a small child in the backseat of my parents lime green 2-door Nova, sitting on the parking lot of the A&W, waiting for the carhops to bring our food. I always had onion rings & a small rootbeer. I remember my brother telling me that […]

Broccoli Soup

I was hungry for a broccoli soup the other day, so my little boy & I went off to the grocery store to find some “trees” for our supper. I have never really had a problem getting either of my kids to eat broccoli, so I knew this was going to be a meal that […]

Homemade Relish

Last year I had so many veggies coming out of the garden, I started to look for new recipes to use them all up. I’d never made my own relish before, but we liked the sweet relish that my MIL had given us the year before. So, after an email or two, I had her […]

Flavorful Sugar Snap Peas

I love fresh peas from the garden, and sugar snap peas are no exception. They really can’t get any easier, as they are peas that you don’t have to shell, you eat the shell with the peas. Perfect! My sister-in-law gave us these sugar snap peas fresh from her garden, and we had them for […]
