Lemon & Garlic Butter Salmon

Super easy weeknight salmon supper coming right up!  I just happened to find a filet of wild salmon in the freezer along with a stick of my trusty herb butter that I keep frozen and on hand. Digging through the pantry last night I pulled out garlic powder, lemon pepper and garlic & herb Mrs. […]

Easy Corned Beef Recipe

It’s not St. Patrick’s Day at our house without corned beef & cabbage.  In excess.  Meaning, we have to have enough for dinner, enough for 2nds, enough for Reuben sandwiches, and if I’m feeling generous, enough for corned beef hash the following morning. I know corned beef isn’t traditionally Irish, but it’s traditionally Irish-American and […]

Pot Roast Recipe

Day 5 in Sickville quarantine and I’m tired of crackers, water and grapefruit juice.  You’d think I would have lost 10 pounds by now, but my winter stores have fared me a little too well.  Joel is about over this flu and being the good wife that I am, I figured I would throw down […]

English Toffee Recipe

English toffee is one of my all-time favorite Christmas treats to make and share. Once upon a time, long, long ago, a dear family friend shared her recipe with me…back when I thought I could remember everything FOREVER…so I abbreviated here and there.  Back when thought that awesome memory of mine would never forget where […]
