Christmas Fudge

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  The snow outside really makes it feel like Christmas is right around the corner.  My “Claim to Fame” at Christmas is my Chex Party Mix and my fudge.  Many people are intimidated about making fudge. Today I am sharing a recipe for “no fail” fudge. One batch […]

Chex Party Mix–Making Memories with Mom

I can always remember Chex Party Mix as being a staple in our home around the Christmas Holiday.  This year is no exception.  I have already made 2 double batches of this magical mix.  This year my Mom is 88 and she is not getting around like she used to.  She still loves the Chex […]

Steak Fajitas

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone, and you are probably a little tired of turkey right now.  We made Steak Fajitas last night.  They were so good.  I just wanted to share the recipe with you.  I did include the chicken instructions for those of you that would prefer chicken over red meat.   Steak […]

It’s Turkey Time!

It’s time to talk turkey–Thanksgiving Turkey that is!  Thanksgiving has come upon us suddenly this year. No need to fret.  There is really little preparation that can be made until the week of Thanksgiving so you are still right on schedule.   Take a deep breath and get prepared for the traditional feast. I use […]

Gourmet Meals for the Holidays/Shrimp Curry

We all like to entertain–especially at the Holidays.  We have special guests coming but time is at a premium.  I have to share my experience with Karen’s Spice Kitchen Shrimp Curry. I got home from work 40 minutes before my guests were due at my house. Did I panic? Not on your life! I sautéed […]

We have partnered with Pierogies of Cleveland and we are offering their frozen Pierogies in 6 packs for purchase.  Naturally, […]

Spaghetti and Meatballs with Spaghetti Squash in the Crock Pot

We are definitely in the “comfort food” season in Northeast Ohio.  I have not quite adjusted to the bone chilling weather we have been having lately.  Luckily, there are more Crock Pot meals to warm your bones than there are cold days.  I like today’s recipe because everything is done in one pot and that […]

Popcorn Balls

There is something about the cool weather that accompanies Fall that takes me back to my childhood.  We always enjoyed homemade Popcorn Balls.  Fall was always the perfect time to make this treat.  I hope you will indulge with me as I make a trip down Memory Lane.  Who knows, maybe this will start a […]

Beef Stew

Sometimes you just have to get back to basics.  I have gotten off of the Paleo Wagon a little and I have seen a few pounds creeping up.  The secret is to nip the weight gain in the bud.  I have sworn off sweets and I am concentrating on “basic” foods.  Basic doesn’t have to […]

Smoked Pork Chops

Smoked Pork Chops are a great selection for dinner.  Why?  You might ask.  I’ll tell you why.  The Butcher has done all of the hard work for you and you will get all the credit.  That works for me every time!  I paired my Smoked Pork Chops with pork and sauerkraut, smashed garlic red potatoes […]
