Cucumbers the Magical Pill

  Cucumbers I feel, are not given all the glory they deserve. They are so much more then fruit, disguised as a vegetable, salad topping, part of a crudités, eye patches in a facial or floating in drinking water at a fancy spa. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those applications for cucumbers and […]

Fluffy French Toast with Homemade Rhubarb Syrup

This is my moms recipe that was passed down from an army wife back in the 70s. Of course I have made my own changes through the years but then again, I can never leave recipes alone. If I would make this everyday my hubby would be over the moon! He loves sweet breakfast dishes. […]

Eggs on Potato Chips Anytime of the Day

My MIL (mother in law) Debra loves chatting recipes with me. When she realized I could cook, she quit lol. OK I am teasing and of course we live hundreds of miles away from each other, so that dream only happens a few times a year. One day we were chatting and she told me […]

For the Love of Limes and Their Benefits

  Summer is finally here and for me that can only mean one thing, staying cool! Ok maybe not just one thing but staying cool is my main goal because hot heat is not my friend. Part of that plan is lots of fizzy water and fresh squeezed lime. I also cook with limes and […]

Spirulina Dark Chocolate Smoothie Superfood To Go!

  Smoothies are my main squeeze in the warmer months and I will admit I get stuck on the same ingredients often. This shake came out of laziness to fill veggie caps. Yes, I mix powerhouse plant powders and shove them into little gel caps for amazing supplements. It seems these days I have way […]

Banana Split Smoothie

    I don’t know about you but even the words banana split takes me back. They were the decadent dessert in our home growing up. Fresh strawberries at their peek, perfectly ripe bananas, neapolitan ice cream, hot fudge, caramel, whip cream nuts and cherries. That was my my favorite combo. I was not big […]

Ramen!

    From the first day I ever tried Ramen in America it truly changed my life. I had always love noodles but Ramen was something different! Ramen was magical! Ramen was fast!!! Ramen was easy but was Ramen good for me?!? Of course in the 80s and being around age 14, I was not […]

Fast Mac-n-Cheese with Poached Egg

    I do not deny my love for pasta and eggs together or apart! The less pans I have to use the better for me because I really hate clean up after I’ve cooked anything. My husband is starting to think this is why I married him.  I know mac n cheese is a […]

Veggie Stock from Scraps

A long time ago… my friends mom, who was a great frugal cook showed me this trick of scrap saving and it was not for a compost pile! She kept all her vegetable scraps from various dishes she made like soups, stews, side dishes and tossed them in a Tupperware she kept in the freezer. […]

Mac n Cheese with Poached Eggs and Asparagus

  We have all had mac n cheese that has been boiled to death then you add back the binder by making a rue. This is way easier then that and once you make it you will never go back, that’s my bet. This is one of those meals that you can eat breakfast lunch […]
