Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

When the weather turns cold I like to make comfort foods. Although I am trying to make them a bit healthier these days rather than the creamy, full of fat foods they were. Chicken Pot Pie is one of those dishes that the whole family loves and that is fairly easy to make. It is great for those cold winter days. … [Read more...]

Honey Maid Graham Cracker Brownies

Honey Maid Graham Cracker Brownies

Disclosure: I participated in this event as a Honey Maid ambassador. I received compensation including a basket of products to create my recipe. However all opinions expressed are 100% my own. This past weekend we had a huge family holiday dinner and while there was more than enough to eat dessert was probably the biggest showstopper of the night. There was a ton of desserts but one of the biggest hits were my Honey Maid Graham Cracker Brownies. These are so easy to make and the kids just loved them, in fact, I ended up having to make another batch later for everyone. … [Read more...]

Scotch Eggs from Outlander Kitchen

Scotch Eggs

I told you not long ago that I was making different things from Outlander Kitchen and would be sharing with you the things that I make as I make them.

In truth I have heard of them before Outlander in other movies and was curious as to what they were and how they would turn out.

I was a bit nervous and learn a few things. … [Read more...]

Nestlé NIDO® +1

Disclosure: This is part of a sponsored campaign with Nestlé NIDO®. However all opinions expressed are 100% my own.    Fall has finally officially arrived and the weather here in the South has begun to change. We haven't had to use our air conditioner so far this whole week (YEAH!!!) One of the things I love the most about the fall is the change to get outdoors and have some family fun.  Not to mention take a little time to learn a few things. This weekend we are doing a little mountain climbing and hiking. Actually the kids are hiking with me … [Read more...]

Gallo Hearty Burgundy Pairs Well with Spicy Mexican Foods

Spicy Mexican Salad

Disclosure: this post is sponsored by Gallo Family Vineyards, and I am compensated as part of the Mom It Forward blogger network. All photos and opinions are my own.  As you all know we are blended culturally and while I love making all sorts of foods the family loves when I make Mexican food the best. As much as I love cooking and food I love pairing wine with great food. There are many various wines that pair with spicy foods but none do it as well as Gallo Family Vineyards’ Hearty Burgundy, at least in my opinion. … [Read more...]
