A Day of Cooking Failures…

We all have them right? Recipes that we completely destroy and have no reason why? I know I have that happen. Last Sunday, I had an entire day of cooking failures. Yes, and entire day! First up was dessert and next was dinner. For dessert I wanted to make fudge– I even had a recipe that said “fool proof.” I… Continue reading

A couple weeks into the New Year. How are you doing with your resolutions? I’m staying fairly on track– gym this morning, and I am currently still full of energy.

Chicken, Asparagus, & Quinoa Bake

  I am a sucker for a good casserole dish. I love to mix things together even when I cook them separately, so why not cook it all together? And— this has bacon in it! A big score for the hubby. The casserole was a huge hit, and was actually pretty healthy too I used a recipe from Krafted Koch as my… Continue reading
