This recipe for Green Chile Stew comes from my father-in-law, Jim…he’s a bonafide soup master. Print Slowcooker Green Chile Stew Prep […]

I love autumn, it’s my favorite time of the year.  The crisp, cool air just begs for a mug of warm soup or hot apple cider to accompany the beauty of the surrounding fall foliage. Well, in theory anyway.  My leaves are still green here in the desert southwest! You can find my recipe for […]

Gluten Free Halloween

Gluten Free Halloween Punch

I pretty much flarped on Halloween this year and haven’t done nearly as much as I typically like to.  I think I have had a serious case of “spooky block,” not having artificial colorings to fall back on, LOL!  That’s okay though, I will just look back at this as my “deprogramming” year. It’s funny, […]

Lunchbox Fun: Inside Out Sandwiches & Homemade “Panera Bread” Tomato Soup

LunchboxFunInsideOutSandwiches

The inspiration for this nifty little concoction came from the Taste of Home Magazine.  I thought this would be a great introduction to the joys of sandwiches for my kiddos, who are meat-sandwich adverse.  I really don’t get it, but they will only eat a nut butter & jelly sandwich.  Deli meats must be cubed […]

Sausage and Bean Ragout

I made this “soup” the other night and was very impressed, especially by how my children gobbled it up even with the “green” stuff (spinach) in it.  Sam totally embraces new foods and he really likes knowing when a food is good for him. Luke on the other hand, is a tougher nut to crack.  […]
