Recipe Redux – Potato Rolls

This month’s Recipe Redux theme, in honor of Thanksgiving, is a food memory for which we are thankful and then a healthy “redo” of that recipe. This was pretty easy for me to come up with an idea as one memory and food jumps out at me this time of year. My family has always made potato rolls […]

Recipe Redux: Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onion, Kale and Pesto Pizza

What a most lovely mouthful – to say and eat! This month’s Recipe Redux challenge is all about pizza, one of America’s favorite foods. We love pizza night at our house and make it quite often. I love to do a pizza bar and set out a variety of toppings so that everyone can make […]

Pumpkin Apple Breakfast Cookies

I don’t know about you, but our mornings are often chaotic trying to get one or two little ones off to school (depending upon the day) and my husband out the door to work. Luckily I don’t commute very far to work most days! But having time for more than a quick breakfast on the […]

Recipe Redux – Honey Whole Wheat Sandwich Buns

It is finally great to be back participating in the Recipe Redux. I had to take a hiatus while I was on bedrest and then had my little girl 10 weeks ago. This month’s Recipe Redux challenge was to use natural sweeteners, either honey or maple syrup, in a recipe. This was a tough choice […]

Menu Plan Monday–February 20

I got quite off course again this past week. I made my planned meals for Monday and Tuesday and then changed my mind for the rest of the week. I actually used the leftover flank steak meat and some leftover shredded chicken (I made another slow cooker rotisserie chicken one night) to make fajitas on […]
