Happy Dance, Happy Dance!

Tonight I didn’t feel like making a big dinner.  Then my husband remembered that he had a meeting tonight.  (We had both forgotten.)  So, while he rushed out the door, I tried a new recipe. I’ve been intrigued by Amish cooking lately.  In fact, I’d like to do some research, purchase a good Amish cookbook…

Pizza Last Night – Cinnamon Rolls This Morning

Yesterday I posted a blog entry that talked about our family night and homemade pizza.  It was so good. I complain a lot about my camera, but I have to make do for now.  Below are pictures on the final results.  The color is off on one (with orange tones) even though all three pictures were taken…

Family Night Tonight!

Friday nights are Family Night at our house.   Tonight we’re having homemade pizza.

My Father-in-Law used to make Mulligan Stew every once in a while.  What that meant was that he took all the leftovers in the fridge from the week and made a soup out of them.  I was told that when they had been warned that it was Mulligan Stew night, my sisters-in-law would make sure…

Tropical Fruit Bread

Last night I had a burst of energy and only a few slices of bread left.  So, I decided to make some bread for today.  It started off being 1 loaf white bread (for sandwiches) and 1 loaf raisin bread (for breakfast).  But, as I was looking for the raisins in the pantry, I found a…
