Kielbasa and vegetables

It’s summertime! I absolutely love spring, summer and fall, and with those seasons come rare times of long-awaited camping. My husband and I have an RV, and as much as we love to visit other areas of the country, sometimes we just like to camp close to home, relax, and

Unrolled egg rolls

Do you ever tire of the feeling that your meals consist of the same old thing? I know that I do. Therefore, I’m always on the lookout for something new and interesting that my husband and I would both like. Admittedly, I’m lucky in that department because my husband isn’t

Chocolate cherry hand pies

These are a wonderful treat for picnics or brunch. The crust is my version of the family pie crust recipe. I streamlined it a little and made it easy to remember. The key is the order of the ingredients. Each one is half the amount of the previous. If you

Swedish rye bread

Springtime is finally just around the corner! I believe that one of the many reasons the spring season is so wonderful is because of the anticipation of warmth and sunshine after the long, cold days of winter. In thinking about a recipe to contribute, I always think of my current

Quick and easy white chili

Brrrrrr… Baby, it’s cold outside! And to me, cold weather equals soup weather. Although I could eat a different kind of soup every day during the winter and never tire of it, my husband is a bit more particular. He likes soup — but only certain soups. So, in looking for new recipes,

Back to the basics

Lasagna recipe is a family favorite Everybody knows how to make lasagna, right? Or, if you’re like me, you think you do. Mine tastes OK, but it generally comes out soupy and just not quite the way I think it should. I was searching through my recipe files recently, found

Sweet and Sour Hoppin’ John

Here is an updated and very lucky recipe for New Year’s Day. Traditionally, Hoppin’ John is eaten in the southern U.S. on New Year’s Day. The dish has rice, bacon and black-eyed peas. I have always felt that the dish is bland and unattractive, so I came up with this

Cheesy cauliflower chicken casserole

Winter weather is almost here. We love comfort food when it’s cold outside. It’s good to hunker down inside with a creamy, steamy, delicious casserole that just warms you up from the inside out. A few weeks ago, one of the ladies at our church asked if I would make

Pork tenderloins

Impress your friends and family with the best of the Midwest Recently, as I was preparing to host friends from out of state for the weekend, a conversation took place about meal “must haves” during their stay. As is usually the case, pork tenderloins were one of the “local” foods

Pocatisa (Croatian Nut Roll)

I’ve been enjoying the “Great British Baking Show” lately. I am not generally a baker, but I have been inspired by some of the recipes from the show. The one for Povitica brought back so many memories. I was about 10 years old, biking with my special basket to Mrs.
