Chicken Noodle Bake Recipe

Pin it here. Thanks!


Here’s another one of Wilda’s Recipes I thought you all might like. {I talk about the recipe book here.} It’s a tasty old-fashioned recipe. Works great for freezer cooking, too!

The recipe has been slightly adapted from the original. We used chicken instead of turkey and olives instead of green pepper and pimento. Since no one in our family loves the taste of mushrooms we used cream of chicken […]

Grammy’s Ham Loaf Recipe

Grammy's Ham Loaf Recipe

Pin it here. Thanks!

I have something special to share with you today!

This ham loaf recipe comes from a cookbook called Wilda’s Recipes.

Wilda was my Grammy. She was a fabulous cook, but most of all a very special friend.

The recipes in this cookbook were copied directly from the recipe cards in her kitchen. And trust me, she had A LOT. My Aunt Kitty took on the task of organizing and […]

Steak Success

Steak Sauce

Yesterday, we tried out a new steak sauce – Smoky Montreal Steak Sauce by McCormick. #GrillMatesPack

I drizzled a little sauce on the steak.

Let it cook…



The steak turned out very good. The entire family was pleased with the taste of McCormick’s Smoky Montreal Steak Sauce. I’ll admit I was pleasantly surprised, since I like my usual way of grilling steak a lot. And all I usually […]

My Summer 10 Meal Menu

10 meal menu

It’s been a while since I posted a meal menu. We like to grill a lot in the summer, so my favorite chef is preparing several side dishes for us this time around.

I’m excited, because we’re trying out a two new pasta salad recipes this time. Obviously we won’t be freezing those. We also won’t freeze the enchilada casserole, chicken salad or rice, black bean and corn salad.

I’d love to stay connected.

10 Meal Menu ~ No.1

10 meal menu


About a month ago, I shared with you the fact that I’m not Superwoman and that I have a wonderful lady cook for us. I thought it might be fun to share what meals I order from her.

Yesterday, we got the car packed up with ingredients and dropped them off at her house.


Here’s what she’s making for us.

:: Meatloaf (x2)

:: Stuffed Shells

:: Chicken Pot Pie (x2)


Slow Cooker ~ Dijon Pork Chops

Dijon Pork Chops

Today, we tried out a new recipe. Slow Cooker Dijon Pork Chops from the Better Homes and Gardens Biggest Book of Slow Cooker Recipes. {I picked this book up at a used bookstore over the Christmas break and already have several recipes picked out to try!}

I liked that this recipe was so easy to put together. You just mix the sauce ingredients, potatoes and onion in a big bowl, dump it into the slow […]

Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving Pies

We enjoyed a most wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with family and friends. Our Leaf Garland of Thanksgiving was completed and we certainly do have much to be thankful for. In fact, I would like to continue counting our blessings in December…just need to come up with a way to display them.

Here are some pictures of the food. I like to make enough to last us through the weekend. I think I succeeded.


Three Family Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes

Thanksgiving Colllage

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I thought I would share three of our family’s favorite Thanksgiving side dish recipes: Cheesy Green Bean Casserole, Hashbrown Casserole and Sweet Potato Souffle. {Truth be told, I make some of these for Christmas, too.} I usually make two recipes of the hashbrowns and sweet potatoes so we have leftovers for the rest of the weekend.
