National Donut Day: I need gluten-free donuts

National Donut Day: I need gluten-free donuts

Friday is National Donut Day, and there are all sorts of free donuts being given away at various places.  As a matter of fact, the reps from the Butler County Donut Trail are supposed to be dropping off donuts for me as a thank-you for […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies: 1 dough, 5 ways

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies: 1 dough, 5 ways

I used to love making a bunch of different Christmas cookies…trying new recipes each year and making my favorites.  Then I had Jenson and that got more difficult, but I still managed quite a variety.  And then I had Marlowe, and two days before Christmas […]

Review: Jose Cuervo Margaritas in a can

Review: Jose Cuervo Margaritas in a can

I love margaritas.  A lot.  But I don’t like just any margarita…  I’m kind of picky and prefer higher end ones – rocks and salt, please.  The premade ones aren’t that great (I mean, I probably won’t turn one down), but when I saw these […]

Fantastic Costco Finds: Cake and cheese

Fantastic Costco Finds: Cake and cheese

We went to Costco because we were running low on chocolate chips a bunch of stuff.  We tend to go about once about every other month and buy specific items each time (plus an online order here and there), but I love cruising through the […]

Gorgonzola Salmon Burgers

Gorgonzola Salmon Burgers

Our fridge was more empty this week than it has been in a very long time…perhaps ever.  It wasn’t as dire as it sounds, because we could have made it work for another week or so, and if you count the cupboards and freezers, we […]

Simple Turkey Sausage Alfredo

Simple Turkey Sausage Alfredo

On one of my last grocery shopping trips before Marlowe was born, I grabbed a few packages of kielbasa and smoked sausages because they are easy.  Luckily these are good in the fridge for awhile, because I kind of forgot about them.  I was flipping […]

Gluten-free Waffle Donuts – No oven needed!

Gluten-free Waffle Donuts – No oven needed!

You know you can make donuts in a waffles maker, right?  Wonuts, I guess?  It’s a game-changer.    OR I’d been craving donuts, but it was during one of those high 80/90 degrees stretch of weather this summer and I didn’t really want to turn […]

Tony Roma’s Pulled Pork Review

Tony Roma’s Pulled Pork Review

I love having quick meal options when there isn’t time for anything else.  Just because I’m home now, doesn’t mean I made it to the grocery store or remembered to thaw meat from the freezer to prepare dinner.  And sometimes I’m just trying to get […]

liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites Review

liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites Review

A couple of months ago I bought the liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites at Aldi’s when they were on special.  I didn’t try them until last month when I was looking for a quick lunch to make while Jenson napped.  I was at the point […]

Apple Gouda Chicken Sausage and Corn Risotto

Apple Gouda Chicken Sausage and Corn Risotto

We almost always have AmyLu Apple and Gouda Chicken Sausages in our fridge or freezer from Costco.  They are so good…gluten free, few ingredients, nitrate-free, easy to prepare (i.e. fully cooked), and did I mention that they have gouda in them?  Sold.  They come in […]
