The Best Pork Ribs Dry Rub

Blogging is so tedious, and it’s just not my thing. I really like to tell people things to do, and not have to do them. But sometimes you just need to get information into the world. So throwing a post together on our best pork chops recipe combines this. Technically, the post is on the combination of spices we use …

Favorite Soups For Cool Weather Months

I’m a completely disorganized person, and that’s a hard thing to change. Otherwise, you’d see regular posts here instead of nothing for a couple years! Because I know this about myself and my lack of planning, I’m trying to chart out a loose dinner plan for the month. Now that weather is finally cooler, we’re finding that we’re throwing more …

Favorite Potato Soup

Our family’s favorite potato soup. This gets made probably twice a month in the winter, and the girl with a late August birthday usually requests it for her birthday dinner. It’s that favoritest. However, it started out as a humble attempt to replace the Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana now that 1) we’re not living near an Olive Garden and 2) …

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe

So mostly I put sewing projects up on my blog, but I’ll throw a recipe here once in awhile. Like if it’s something I think people may like, or I don’t want to lose the recipe.

Asparagus Quiche

Wow, did we have THE BEST asparagus quiche tonight. So good. There’s a tiny 1/8th of it left. That’s it. Even better than our previous favorite. The husband said it was his new favorite. Better yet, I didn’t have to buy anything at the store. That’s actually how we arrived at this quiche. Because who wants to bike to the …

Gluten Free Scones – Two Ways

Yeah, more baking. Gluten free scones again. I seriously love scones. They’re easy to mix up quickly, and they bake in less time than a muffin. I’m sharing two different new recipes that worked for me recently. Why two in the same post? Because I didn’t take a picture of the first kind- they went too fast! I was having …

Gluten-free chocolate scones

So although I mainly mean this to be a sewing blog, I crafted something else today and wanted to share it. We love chocolate scones around here, but I’ve been feeling not so happy after eating them lately. I tried a version of these a couple weeks ago and they were moist but still crumbly, so I wanted to tweak …

Fall Quinoa Salad Recipe

Today I did a little recipe post for a Corn Free Community site that I totally didn’t know existed. It’s part of a larger network of Corn Free sites. We have a Facebook group and a Blogspot site all run by the talented, dedicated Von Young. Being corn allergic or intolerant is rather stinky. Not only do some doctors NOT …

Creamy Tomato Sauce

I’ve previously posted a picture of this sauce at this post when I was attempting to do one of those Instagram photo-a-day things, just to get more regular about posting on my blog. Well, that’s not going to work for me. I’m too irregular. Maybe someday I won’t be. But I’m reposting with recipe today. Why? Well, contest entry of course. …
