Meatless Monday-Shiitake Maple Bacon Grilled Cheese and Tomato

So my Nan is in town!  She often comes for the weekends, but sometimes stays a few extra days so I can take her for doctor’s appointments and things like that. For Meatless Monday I wanted to come up with something simple that Nan could enjoy with us. Sarah and I […]


Sunday Night Dinner-Citrus and Beet Salads

As I was chopping and prepping the veggies for this Sunday Night Dinner I was listening to the sound of dripping water into a bucket.  We currently have water dripping into the kitchen through our lights.  Sigh.  I bet if I could ask for a show of hands how many […]

Springdell Spicy Sloppy Joes

This recipe adaptation has been in my arsenal for many years.  I think the original recipe came from the winner of a Better Homes and Gardens contest, and since then I’ve played with the ingredients quite a bit.  The only thing consistent is the use of coffee and apple cider in the […]


Ice cube trays, don’t throw yours away!
