Roast Chicken with Tarragon Cream Sauce
Just when you thought that roast chicken couldn't  get any more delicious, I give you ~ Roast Chicken  with a Tarragon Cream Sauce .  Yes! Everything gets even more yummy  when you add cream. Such a simple thing. OK, I may be overselling this one because th...

Cinnamon Quick Bread
Quick breads are so easy and just the right  size for me. This is basically a coffee cake baked in a loaf pan. It's mixed up in just a few minutes. This cinnamon version is one of our favorites. I've used real buttermilk and I've also made it with the subst...

How To Make Money When Thrifting
Here's how to pay for your addiction. We all love to find those bargains when  shopping at Thrift Stores and garage sales. But even a bargain costs money. Those little fun finds can make you feel a bit guilty  because they are "wants" and not "needs".  I al...
Here's what I do. When I see something that's "too good to pass up", I buy it. Sometimes it needs just a "lick and a promise" to make it look better. It can't be too big because we don't have a truck. The 2 pieces I found on my last trip were a bargain! The kitchen island was only $20.

This large white turkey platter will make a nice appearance in November. I like to change the things I lean against the black tile behind the cooktop with the seasons. This 18" platter was $3.00. These are some of my past thrifting purchases. I buy white mugs for 25¢. I have a basketful ...

I used 2 boneless breasts and cut them in half because they were large. It also makes serving easier. Flatten them to a bout 1/2" if they are thick. Put them in a sprayed casserole. Season well with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Put into a sprayed casserole dish.

10 Uses For A Glass Pie Plate
The humble glass pie plate does more than  just bake pies. It's one of my favorite kitchen tools. I have several.  I keep them handy, stacked in the pots cabinet by the stove. I find them for $1.00 or less at my favorite thrift store. They are thick and can...
1 for flour, 1 for eggs. Less mess. 9. It's a nice shallow bowl for mixing and coating the bread for french toast. 10. Use them instead of a dinner plate when serving pasta, the rim prevents spill-overs. This makes it a good plate to use for children. Keep your eye out for these kitchen helpers ...
