Sweet Sausage Pasta

Sweet Sausage Pasta

As I was saying in my last post, Thomas and I were having a lazy weekend here in Missouri and I didn't feel like going out.  The weather was cold, rainy, and snuggling under a nice warm blanket sounded so much better than being cold and wet.  So what did we do about...

I first have to say that I'm so proud of myself!!!  Why????  Because tonight, for the first time ever, I made salmon and all by myself to boot!  I'm not a lover of salmon but Thomas is and I wanted to make us a healthy dinner.  So off to the store I went in search of...

Every once in a while, I get a craving for Mexican.  I love going and getting the white cheese, nachos, and a shrimp burrito with extra pica de Gallo!  Yummmmmm!  Thomas isn't a big fan of going out for Mexican but that man LOVES cheese.  I was trying to come up with a snack for lunch last week for the two of us and I said...you are going to love...

Fried Pork Chops

Fried Pork Chops

It was a rainy, snowy weekend here in WV and we enjoyed a nice weekend at home.  For the most part, it was a lazy one as you can see by Jake and Maggie's pictures.  They were all bundled up today and thoroughly enjoying the warm blankets out of the dryer.  We had plans for lunch at Primanti Brothers but decided to stay home.  I mentioned that we...

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

I’ve been wanting to post my Mashed Potato recipe for a long time now but kept putting it off because it is just so easy and not much to it.  I’m that person who can cook a really hard meal and it comes out tasting scrumptious but can’t make boiled rice to save my life.  How can someone mess up rice??  Well…I can!  But, I’ve mastered these mashed...
