Pioneer Woman Classic Pulled Pork – Adapted for the Crock Pot

Pioneer Woman Classic Pulled Pork – Adapted for the Crock Pot

Have you heard of the Pioneer Woman?  Okay.  Of course you have.  She’s basically the bees knees and has her own blog, several cookbooks, show on Food Network, a store, cafe and a line of home goods in Walmart.  I’d say she’s doing okay for herself. I have several of her cookbooks and I have loved everything I’ve cooked from them.  I also love that her cookbooks have a picture for almost every step.  A few weeks ago I set…

Sloppy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches {Simple Suppers}

Sloppy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches {Simple Suppers}

I’m all for simple meals in the summer time.  It’s hot enough in the South already without slaving over a hot stove! I’m still working Monday through Thursday so cooking on those nights is challenging anyway. I’m also always on the lookout for a quick and delicious recipe using ground beef.  We love ground beef and I cook it at least two times a week.  It seems like I alternate between hamburgers and tacos this time of year (and chili…

Best Taco Recipe Pinterest – Oven Baked Tacos

I wanted to pop in and share the absolute best taco recipe that I’ve found Pinterest so far.  What did we do in a world before Pinterest? There are so many ideas good ideas out there! I think I could pin all day long! I made these Oven Baked Tacos last night and they were delicious!  Even my little Avery likes them and she survives on a diet of green apples, peanut butter and Happy Meals. I found the recipe on Pinterest last summer and it…

Cooking En Masse

Cooking En Masse

You may have noticed from several of my posts that I’ve been attempting various strategies to try to pull myself together before school started back. This latest endeavor is no different.  I have decided to try my hand at…. you guessed it… cooking en masse. Okay.  You probably wouldn’t have guessed that.  But when I saw this pin on Pinterest I thought it might be something good to try. You can read the detailed instructions here. This is how it…

What I love about Summer…

What I love about Summer…

We’re finishing up our first full week of summer and the girls and I have had no trouble in easing into our summer routine.  Here’s what we’re already loving most about summer! 1.  NO LUNCH BOXES!  Have I told y’all how much I despise packing lunches?  I do.  When I wake up now I’m all like..”FREEDOM!!!”  And then I remember I still have to get up and go to work but at least I don’t have to take 10 minutes…

Lately

Wow! Time is flying and we’ve been busy as little bees getting our ducks in a row for summer! I count down the days of school in terms of how many more lunches I have to pack…5 more. I can do it. Here’s a peek at what we’ve been up to. We (naturally) had Tacos for Cinco de Mayo and I made this amazing No-Fry Fried Ice Cream. I followed the recipe except I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal instead…

Some Recipes

Me and food.  Well, we have a thing.  And sweets are my weakness.  I haven’t met a dessert I didn’t like yet.  So when I saw a recipe on Pinterest for No Bake Deep Dish Peanut Butter Pie with Salted Caramel, I decided to give it a try for Thanksgiving. Y’all.  It was so good.  Very rich…but good.  It was even delicious two days later for breakfast.  I (shamelessly) instagrammed it. (Is that a verb?  Southerners can make anything into a verb.) I…

Adventures in Pressure Cooking

Adventures in Pressure Cooking

Do you use a pressure cooker?  I got one for Christmas almost two years ago and used it for the first time tonight.  I cooked chicken breasts in it for chicken salad and chicken and rice soup.  If you have never used one make sure you read the instructions or have your Mom on the phone.  I used the second method.  They can be really dangerous!  And I’m not trying to get burned with scaulding water and steam!  You have…
