Chinese Chicken Salad

We have been fans of the “American Test Kitchen” for many years.  In the last month or so my husband purchased one of their cook books.  He has been cooking up a storm.  Their “CHINESE CHICKEN SALAD” is a delightful change as well as pretty to look at.

  When I was a young mother with 4 kids running around the house I almost always had cookies in the cookie jar. Not only for the children, I am the biggest cookie monster of them all.  Sometimes there wasn’t time to cook 4 dozen cookies a dozen at a time.  My mother had a […]

My husband and I have decided it’s time to change our eating habits to be a bit healthier.  This includes watching our portion sizes and making sure we eat enough fruit and vegetables. To help us with this we started a running program that included an eating plan.  The meal plan is helpful, but does […]

Sweet n'sour chicken2

I found this recipe on my search for camping recipes. We tossed it as a camping recipe – too many ingredients to take camping. But it’s a keeper at home. My kids seriously polished their plates and asked for more. Big Points for Mom! I love to see them eat good food even if it’s […]

Halloween in Wonderland

We had a Trunk-r-Treat the other night at our church. I decorated the trunk this year. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years and I finally got around to it this year. You might be asking yourselves, “why Alice in Wonderland?” It was my daughters idea. She recently rediscovered the movie and has been […]
