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

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.

Fresh green bean salad

Garden season is in swing, and soon we’ll be able to access fresh produce from our gardens or local farmer’s markets. I can’t think of anything more tasty than red, ripe tomatoes and crisp, cool cucumbers on a hot summer evening. We normally plant a large garden, but this year

Extraordinary potato salad

This is a must for the summer celebrations and picnics. You will not resort to purchased potato salad again after you taste this. It is chunky, smoky, bright and tangy. I started with the family standard and added a few key ingredients. Because we live in the land of gorgeous

Taco spaghetti

I think I might be considered, by some, as a “recipe geek.” Not only do I enjoy cooking and baking, I especially enjoy exploring new recipes and occasionally, in my spare time, I can be found reading a cookbook like some people read novels. Specific things entice me, and I

Ahhhhhhh…..Spring in Iowa….I’ve waited for you for so long! It is my favorite long awaited season as we slowly experience warmth and longer days after the coldness of the winter months. The past few months have been extremely eventful for my husband and I. We welcomed an adorable new granddaughter

Silky chicken soup

The cold wind seems to cut right into my bones. There is a low gray ceiling of clouds, and it would be easy to give in to depression at this time of year. I find I need a big pot of comforting, silky soup! This recipe uses frozen ravioli for
