Crock Pot Roast

Crock Pot Roast

  It definitely is beginning to look and feel like fall outside. The perfect week for crock pot meals. I made this pot roast yesterday and decided to update my recipe. I did NOT use the Lipton Soup Mix this time (the picture below is from last year). Instead I substituted my Wildtree Absolutely Onion

Toffee Apple Dip

Toffee Apple Dip

It’s a cool, cloudy day here. Definitely feels like fall. And the kids have been munching on apples all week. I was reminded of this yummy recipe that’s hidden over on my old Tastes from Tricia’s Table blog. Might just have to whip up some Toffee Apple Dip over the weekend. There are a lot

Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese is one of my all-time favorite side dishes. However, until last weekend, I had never made it from scratch. I always fell victim to the quick box version. My mom has made mac and cheese numerous times, but never the same recipe. So I didn’t have a family favorite recipe used over and

S’Mores Bars

S’Mores Bars

A friend recently brought these S’mores bars to our house. They were devoured by everyone. And they are peanut-free! She was kind enough to share the recipe. I made them in a 9 x 13 pan, but highly recommend a larger 10 x 15 pan. Mine still tasted yummy, but were “tall”. Very tall.  

Cucumber Salad

Many, many thanks to a friend for making this cucumber salad for us during a summer play date and for sharing the recipe. It is delicious and so easy. I will have to admit I’ve made about three batches of it in the last few weeks. It’s the perfect summer side dish. Save Print Cucumber

Tinga de Pollo – Kroger’s Taste of Mexico

If you have been in a Kroger over the past few weeks and have NOT noticed the Taste Of Mexico displays, you must have gone in with your eyes closed! Kroger has been celebrating the Taste Of Mexico this month with special events, recipes and tastings within the store. We tried out a few new

Cucumber Basil Pepino

Cucumber Basil Pepino

Remember that yummy Mojito recipe I shared in the past? Well, those same friends just introduced us to the Pepino. And YUM! This is another fabulous summer cocktail. So many thanks to them for sharing their recipes with us. We attended a Lobsta Bake at our pool last night and I decide to bring a

Chipotle Appetizer

Chipotle Appetizer

Sometimes you need a quick and easy appetizer. And sometimes you just don’t have the time to throw it together yourself. BUT you want something a little more than the normal chips and jar of dip. When a friend brought this to the pool the other night for an appetizer potluck, we declared her a

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

When I first moved into our neighborhood my neighbor taught me the secret to these yummy potatoes that were always a hit as a side dish…and super easy as well. For years I’ve been making these with olive oil and Lipton soup packets (which you can still do). I think I first posted this recipe

Peanut Butter Cup Trifle

Peanut Butter Cup Trifle

If you’ve followed along this week you know that we ate everything peanuts/peanut butter on Saturday night. The dessert was definitely not healthy one bit. It was rich and creamy and chocolaty and full of bites of peanut butter goodness. And I must thank The Girl Who Ate Everything for this recipe. The great thing

Baked Pizza Dip

Baked Pizza Dip

This is a quick and easy appetizer that is sure to be a hit at any gathering. It can be made with or without the pepperoni or any other toppings. I was taking mine to a Super Bowl party for this photo, so I placed my pepperoni into the shape of a football. I also
