Gluten Free Crepes!

My late father in law always made the best crepes – we loooove them and have them every Christmas morning (tradition).  But I wanted to try the recipe with Gluten Free flour to see if there would be any difference.     So I made crepes the regular way for the family and this new way for me….and if you want the truth – you can’t tell the difference. Seriously. I had my husband take a bite of mine and he…

Delicious Homemade Tomato Soup

Ah yes…one of my favorites. Often my mom and I would have grilled cheese or tuna  sandwiches and tomato soup on Sunday afternoons….we loved it. There was something really cozy about it and felt to me like one of those bonding moments. One of those memories that sticks. So naturally I’m pretty excited that my daughter also loves tomato soup – ah and so the bonding continues. 🙂 Several years ago, while visiting family in Utah, my cousin made us this…

Orange/Almond Salad

This is probably my favorite salad of all time. I love making homemade dressing and being able to have a pretty salad to put it on just makes it even better….and more delicious! For the dressing, blend together: 2 chopped green onion stalks 1/3 cup vinegar 3/4 cup sugar 1 tsp prepared mustard 1 cup vegetable oil (added slowly while blending)…Mazola, Canola, or Crisco…though Olive oil can be used as well And, to make a pretty salad to put it…

The Ultimate Taco Dip

Several years ago I couldn’t decide whether to make my usual taco dip or have a taco (I had leftover taco meat in the fridge)…so I decided to mix the two. And oh my heavens….the result was absolutely scrumptious and became a repeat *offender* in this house!!! I took it for a girly night and got rave reviews – it is seriously soooo good! My usual taco dip recipe – Layer: Refried Beans Guacamole (recipe linked below) Mixture of 2…

Bruschetta Chicken

I pulled chicken out yesterday because I knew it’s what I wanted, but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to prepare it. So I pulled out a cookbook I love (one from my aunt’s church group) and looked through the chicken recipes. Though I don’t like tomatoes, the recipe for Bruschetta Chicken just sounded awesome. I didn’t follow the recipe, but instead made up my own. I remembered buying cans of Aylmer Garlic and Olive Oil diced tomatoes and thought…

The GM Diet/Cleanse {My *long winded*thoughts}

I’ve been wanting to try a cleanse for years now….The store ones don’t appeal to me, and I know enough about myself to know that I’m not good without food. I need something to sustain me or at least keep me committed. So the Master Cleanse and juice or water cleanses weren’t really at the top of my list either. I just figured I’d find one I was  happy with at some point and try it out – which is…
