Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Hello, everyone!  I was thinking the other night, that with fall fully up on us now, that I wanted to have a simple, flavorful soup that wasn't a chili.  I know, I know, this looks like a chili, but it isn't.  It's a really lovely black bean soup!  Even better, it comes together in minutes, and takes at least an hour or two to cook (even less if you use precooked chicken!).

Hello, everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  Have you ever been in a rush for supper, and have just a few ingredients on end up standing there trying to figure out what to make of it?  Hahahahahahahahahahaha of course you have!  We all have!  I had this happen the other night.  I was hungry, and I just wanted something to eat!

Apple Gillete

Good morning, everyone!  Today is Thursday, and let me tell you, it has been one crazy week!  However, who doesn't want an apple pie, that's easier?  Even better, you don't have to use apples!  You can use aaannnnyyyy fruit that bakes well!  Peaches?  Sure!  Plums?  Absolutely!

Monster Eye Cake

Good morning, everyone!  Happy Tuesday!!  Today's post is going to be pretty brief; we're winding up for the Holiday season, and with all of the fun that comes with that, that also brings the school projects home.
As I write this, I should be cutting out leaves and two large cardboard waves.  Be jealous of my evening.

Pork Chops With Lingonberry Sauce

Good morning, everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  I've mentioned before, how much I enjoy seasonally themed food, and this may not seem like it's very Halloween-y, but you could sell this as "pork chops in blloooddddd".  If you wanted to.  I seem to be the only one that enjoys this themed food, so I just kept that gem to myself while serving this to my family.
I tell myself that as my daughter gets a little bit older, she'll get as big a kick out of it as I do!

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Good morning, everyone!  We have spaghetti a lot in this house, as its one of the few things we can get our daughter to eat with us, without a fight....or bribery.  She loves everything about spaghetti, and even has the recipe memorized, so...yeah, we have it a lot in our house.

Easy Ice Cream Cake

Hello, everyone!  A couple of weeks ago it was my husbands birthday, and as I have mentioned several times before, he's not much of a sweets eater.  So, this poses a problem for me, since I love to celebrate birthdays with cakes or cookies, or whatever the person likes....last year, I made my husband some rice krispies treats.  Those, he'll eat.

Haunted Double Chocolate Cookies

Good morning, everyone!  It's not only the first of the month, but it's also the first Thursday of the month, so, as always, that means it's the cookie-of-the-month time!  I'm hugely into themed food, and with the Halloween coming up, followed by all of the fun holidays...well, we'll be seeing some themed food coming up here pretty soon!
Well, as soon as today!  These aren't really "Halloween themed" per say (nor are they really haunted.  I didn't think that needed to be said, but....just throwin that out there for you), but they're double chocolate, and that's always a good thing!
