Be your own Pizza Kitchen

We have to admit that we occasionally crave pizza on Friday nights.  Even though our kids are usually going a hundred different directions, we are sometimes all home on Friday nights.  And when we are, we like to party a bit by eating pizza and watching a movie together.   Since we started making pizza at […]

Cranberry Sauce This homemade version is so good you may never buy store bought again.  It has got a great fall spicy taste; couple that with the oranges and apples and you have an unbeatable combination.  We make a double batch and then can the leftovers in tiny bottles to use throughout the year.  This […]

I got this recipe from my dear friend Blondie, and since then, we make this several times a month.  The only thing that prevents us from making these is a lack of over-ripe bananas on hand.  Sometimes we eat through the whole bunch before they are ripe enough!  Blondie also gave me another great idea: […]

These are savory muffins which is such a nice change from the typical sweet muffin.  I think they are lovely with soup.  The muffin top is especially delicious with all the browned cheese.  My kids all love this muffin.  Some kids are bothered by pepper; if so, you could reduce the pepper in the recipe.
