I realize that most of what you see in this picture is cheese.  I may have been a little heavy handed with the cheese as I have been lately.   Oops.  Really, melty cheese on top of chili is so delicious, who can deny that?  I can honestly say it’s especially delicious now that I’m pregnant […]

This polenta lasagna is so delicious!  It’s so quick and easy to throw together once the polenta is made and cooled.  With premade polenta, and pasta sauce this is such a quick meal to throw together! I love polenta.  Like really, I absolutely love the stuff, but it has to be made right.  Honestly, you […]

If you’re bored by gardening stuff, feel free to skip past the next picture…  So I’ve been ignoring my garden.  It’s been wet enough here that it hasn’t needed watering.  I think we’ve only watered it once this year.  And I’ve gone out to weed it a few times but I’ve been eaten alive by […]

I love these two recipes and use them all the time.  In fact these pictures are old enough that I’m craving this kind of meal again already.  Can you tell we’re big fans of burritos?  Quick and easy even with all homemade ingredients(and I promise, all homemade ingredients really do make a difference).  Everything can […]

I thought I should drop in with a quick recipe today.  We’ve had a busy weekend so far and my sister in law has been staying with us.  We spent the afternoon yesterday baking and had so much fun 😀  Hopefully I’ll be able to post something from yesterday in a couple days.  It’s also […]
