Homemade Barbecue Sauce

It’s your lucky day because I’m sharing a cherished family recipe. My dear Aunt Betty, who was technically my Great Aunt since she’s my grandmother’s sister, was such a whiz in the kitchen. I took many “lessons” from her growing up including a class on homemade barbecue sauce, which we served with chicken drumsticks. I… Read More >

Baked Ham with a Pineapple Brown Sugar Glaze

I set out to make this ham in the crockpot, like the original recipe called for. However, sometimes life gets in the way of your plans and I didn’t have 6 hours to wait for dinner. Given that I’m pregnant I can’t wait until 9 or 10 PM to eat! So I modified it and… Read More >

I’m sure there isn’t real maple syrup and probably a whole bunch of preservatives in those packages. These oatmeal bars are nutritious… Read More >

Slow Cooker Pesto Chicken Pasta

Blueberry Pie Tassies

Tassies are my absolute favorite Christmas cookie. A cream cheese dough is filled with brown sugary goodness (and when I could eat them, walnuts) – they are dangerously good. But I’ve always just made them at Christmas time, when I didn’t even think that I could make them all year round! I came across a… Read More >
