Hamburger and Hominy Helper

Hamburger and Hominy Helper

Why is naming someone or something so difficult? Loving a name isn’t enough. If you know someone who gives you a bad association with a name it might turn you off completely. Or in our case, you might have a name for a dog picked […]

Maple Sweet Potatoes  ||  Homemade in a Hurry

Maple Sweet Potatoes || Homemade in a Hurry

It’s just about that time of year! Where we take something perfectly healthy, and do our best to make it decadent while turning a blind eye to calorie count. Green beans, for example — stir in some cream of mushroom soup, fried onions, and bacon and you’ve gone from a nutritious […]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

I know Halloween originated as a day to remember the saints, martyrs, and the faithfully departed. But this year I am too spooked by things like figuring out pre-school Halloween party logistics and complaining about ridiculously expensive Halloween candy (why is it so expensive these days!?).

Trick-or-Treat Cake

FrankenBrownies || Homemade in a Hurry

Halloween celebrations really evolve over the years, don’t they? For a kid, its all about the candy. As a teenager/college student its all about the costume…or maybe getting attention for said costume. And now, at least for me, I just want to find that perfect […]

The Perfect Chili

The Perfect Chili

A big pot of bubbling chili is almost like a little orchestra playing a symphony of coziness from the stove top. That soft simmer blares a familiar song of comfort all through the house, “come on in and get cozy.” Every time there is talk of […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Pudding

Chocolate Chip Banana Pudding

Do you have those favorite fast-food chain restaurants for your road trips, but avoid them if they are attached to a gas station? I have to admit that I am guilty of this. Or at least I was until I had the most delicious banana […]
