Mixed Berry Scones
It’s the week of Fourth of July, which means I’m scrambling to get the cow poop out of my yard, I’ve got to power wash my porch, I need to start juicing lemons for the millions of gallons of lemonade I need to make, and I’m looking for any way possible to use the metric tons of blueberries and ...
Alex’s Favorite Foods
Today’s my oldest child Alex’s eighteenth birthday, and starting here in a little bit, the day will be all about her! Just after she helps her dad haul some hay. Ha. Alex loves food. She is my child in that regard. So in honor of her birthday, I thought it would be fun to share some of her very ...
I love lemon bars, but they often fall by the wayside and get forgotten for months at a time in our house. We’re much more of a chocolate chip cookie/chocolate pie/chocolate sheet cake/chocolate ice cream/chocolate potato chip/chocolate everything household, followed by fruit cobblers and crisps…so
My family loves—I mean loves—Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, otherwise known as “Freddy’s.” A location opened about an hour from the ranch a couple of years ago, and whenever we’re passing through for a soccer game or a grocery trip, it’s a treat to be able to stop and chow down on what
I think marinara sauce is one of life’s simple pleasures, and there’s nothing complicated about making your own pot of the stuff. The only thing it requires is a pot, a few ingredients, and a healthy dose of patience; the longer it simmers, the better it is! Here’s how I made it yesterday. T’was ...
Crunchy French Toast
I just have one word to describe this French toast: Oh my. And okay, that was two words. But that’s how good this French toast is. It causes me to lose complete track of how many words I’m using. It also causes me to stop what I’m doing and reflect on each and every bite of what I’m eating, which
Memorial Day is Delicious!
I usually share a roundup of Memorial Day-friendly recipes on the Friday before, because Memorial Day is the kickoff for summer holidays. Restaurant Style Salsa. Make it by the gallon! Truly the best salsa in the universe. Grilled Corn Guacamole. Dangerously addictive. Watermelon Pico
The first time I ever tried peach salsa was in 1993. Don’t ask me how I’m able to remember these things. Honestly, on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of daily forgetfulness, I would say I rank upwards of 8 or 9. It’s only because I now faithfully use a to-do app on my phone that I am able to function
Homemade Chicken Nuggets
Chicken nuggets. What can we say about them? They’re so simple, so ubiquitous, such a steady component in the diet of American kids. And okay—American kids’ parents. And the choices—they’re abundant! From fast food restaurants to big bulk bags in the freezer section of the grocery store, there are
I love ice cream. (Duh. I’m a human being walking this earth, after all!) Unless bananas are involved (yuck! blech! ugh!), I will pretty much inhale any kind of ice cream put in front of me. Add a luscious sauce of some kind and I’m a total goner. Hot fudge, caramel…I’ll take it all. And I’m ...
