Inside: These pickle dip roll ups are a quick lunch or appetizer, perfect for days when it’s just too hot to cook.
Do you ever just need a quick and easy recipe for lunch or maybe to take to a party?
Of course you do!
There are some days when it’s too hot to cook anything, but you really don’t want another PB&J. Roll ups can be a fun way to change it up a bit. And you can make them out of just about anything.
Inside: Tons of tried and true easy meals for large families. Make meal time less of a chore!
Waaaaay back in the day, I was a young girl in 4-H. My goal was to take every single cooking project. I did well enough to compete at the state level more than once, and even won an “Outstanding of the Day” award there for my bread. Which I probably work into more conversations than I should.
To this day I maintain that I learned more usable life skills in 4-H than I did from my school. Which may or may not be true, I guess. After all, I’m using the writing abilities I got from school right now.
Anyway, I have always enjoyed cooking and baking. But those competitions are a lot different from creating a meal night after night. Especially when you’re cooking for a large family.
I catch a glimpse of the time as I swat at the obnoxious noise coming from my alarm clock. That can’t be right…I overslept again?
Quickly I rush around to wake up kids and make sure they have everything they need. Backpacks. A packed lunch. Clothes for gym class. Oh, and breakfast.
With so many delicious Thanksgiving pie recipes, how to choose? All of these will be hits!
I didn’t realize that I had 36 million friends, but anyone who claims apple pie as their favorite can’t be bad! Pie is the classic dessert that must end our Thanksgiving meal. No matter how you protest to Grandma that you couldn’t possibly eat another bite, you know she’s going to cut you two big slices.
Now, you could stop at the store and get one of those boxed pies. But I have a feeling that the pies I’m about to show you will change your mind.
Inside: Learning how to freeze sweet corn is simple when you use this method! Forget about boiling water and peeling tons of silks. This year, take the easy way.
There are lots of reasons to learn how to freeze corn. Maybe you were blessed with a windfall like us. Or you grew your own great crop. Or maybe you even happened upon an amazing deal at a farm stand or supermarket. Don’t let it go to waste!
Freezing corn is simple and requires little equipment. Today I’m going to teach you my little “cheater” tricks to freezing corn the easy way.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of potlucks. It’s such a great way to entertain guests without spending a fortune. I never mind bringing along a dish when my family is invited to a party.
And each time I throw a party, most of my guests will ask what they can bring. I’m not sure if that’s good old midwestern politeness or if it’s just that I have great friends and family.
