Blueberry-Rhubarb Tartlets

I will be completely honest. Today was not my best day. I had too much on my plate, as usual, not to mention people judging me. So, I decided to treat you to a treat I made for an honors ceremony for child #4’s school. They are delicious! Make the pie filling: 6 cups frozenContinue reading “Blueberry-Rhubarb Tartlets”

Ham and Potato Casserole

In our home everyone takes turns making dinner. A few days ago it was child #3’s turn. I realize she has many mental issues, but she is still capable of making a nice dinner with some direction. So, here I was, laid up on the couch, as I have been for the last over aContinue reading “Ham and Potato Casserole”

Luscious Lemon Frosting

Today was the day! We have had quite a few lemons hanging around, looking pretty. Well…maybe not so pretty by now! So today child #2 decided was the day for juicing lemons. Now usually we would zest the lemons before juicing them, therein making sure to get all we can from said fruit, especially ifContinue reading “Luscious Lemon Frosting”

Totally Tomato Soup

Cake Ideas

We then added about 3/4 of a cup of tart cherry jam as filling between the layers. OurContinue reading “Cake Ideas”

Mama’s Fried Chicken

Don’t you miss it? That wonderful crispy, flavorful, mouth-watering chicken? It irritates me no end to go into any deli that sells fried chicken and smell the wonderful smells of it and know that I will be violently ill if I eat it. Frustrating. Having celiac disease is no joke. It is so not worthContinue reading “Mama’s Fried Chicken”

Groundhog’s Day Dinner

First, I want to say, “Happy Groundhog’s Day! What is Groundhog’s day? It’s this crazy thing we have in North America that a rodent foretells the weather. As the story goes, if the groundhog sees his shadow, Spring is right around the corner. However, if the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, we will get sixContinue reading “Groundhog’s Day Dinner”

Leftover Turkey – BBQ Style

Now we have all had leftover turkey at one time or another. Whether it’s after Thanksgiving, or another time where you only made a turkey breast, but the leftovers seem to multiply. The other day, the lunchtime after we had had a big turkey for dinner, I was racking my brain to figure out somethingContinue reading “Leftover Turkey – BBQ Style”
