Cheddar Broccoli Potato Mashers
     Sometimes, I try a new twist on a standard dish and think to myself, "Self, why have you not tried this before?"  And then I wonder if I can ever go back to the standard.  Well, ladies and gentlemen, behold, Broccoli Cheddar Potato Mashers.  This twist...

Cherry Almond Vanilla Cupcakes
      I am the first to admit that I am not a fan of cupcakes.  Or, most sweets for that matter.  My mind has been changed after trying these Cherry Vanilla Almond Cupcakes.  I love cherry flavoring (but not real cherries. Weird, I know). Especially around ...

Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Lil' Smokies
      Oh. Sweet. Mama.  I long for these babies.  Luckily for my waistline, I only eat these once (maybe twice) a year, although I crave them much more often. They are by far my favorite New Year's Eve indulgence and I so look forward to inhaling them.  I'm...

Amazing No-Knead Rolls
      When I first got hitched to My Giant, I kept trying a bunch of new roll recipes.  Most of them were epic fails.  I always wondered if it was the recipe, or the fact that I didn't have a fancy mixer to make the rolls in.  Or if it was just me, making t...

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
      I love me a good soup.  And I've always loved chicken and wild rice soup. My Giant, however, has shot me down every time I wanted to put it in our weekly menu.  He was of the opinion that rice didn't belong in soup.  I finally convinced him to let me ...

Slow Cooker Pot Roast
             Today, we are talking comfort food.  And specifically, my comfort food.  Besides a soda, (could totally go for one right now) nothing brings me more comfort than meat and potatoes.  We often had a pot roast for sunday dinners growing up, but of...

Oatmeal Pancake Mix
            I am in trouble.  Like, serious trouble.  My Little Giant is eating us out of the house!  And he is only 2!  He seriously eats more than I do at almost every meal, and has other snack times throughout the day.  Most of the time, I have to cut hi...
