Shrimp & Mushroom Scampi

Lately, I’ve been trying some new recipes, food that we enjoy when we eat out, but some that I’ve never made before. Beef Pot Pie was one I recently made. I’ve been cooking since I was 9 years old (with my mom’s supervision) and I can’t believe I never made pot pie before. It’s become…

Instant Pot Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

It’s been a while since I made cabbage rolls since the price of cabbage has been sky high.  It was $1.45 a pound at one of our local stores last week.  I hadn’t heard of why there was such a price hike, but I am noticing the prices are coming back down and more reasonable.…

Grandma’s Meatball Vegetable Soup

I thought maybe the Groundhog was right and we were going to have an early Spring when temperatures reached into the 60’s last week, but we got about 8″ of snow over the past 2 days, along with some high winds and ice. We didn’t even bother snow blowing the driveway yesterday, but it was…

Hello February!!!  It’s snowing here today as we just experienced some of the coldest weather in decades!! We had a low of -8 F with windchill of -24 F, but that was nothing compared to the -60 windchill in some of our Northern states. Since I’m kind of snowed in today and it’s Friday, thought…

Instant Pot Christmas Ham

A quick visit here to post my recipe for an Instant Pot Christmas Ham.  I bought a half a shank ham…only 69 cents a pound with a $25 grocery purchase, so I figured I would try making it in the Instant Pot.  If it failed, then I still have time to run to the store…

Faux Primitive Old Fashioned Peppermint Sticks

A couple months ago, I started making mesh wreaths.  Something I always wanted to try doing and after watching several YouTube videos I decided to give it a try.  One video I was intrigued with was the Dollar Store Mesh Wreath, being the “frugal” person that I am, if I’m going to screw up making…

Instant Pot Chicken and Vegetable Soup

A little over a week ago, I decided to try a new diet plan to lose weight. I think more than a diet, it’s a new way of learning to eat the right foods. Avoiding anything with preservatives and high fructose corn syrup. You can have honey, maple syrup and coconut palm sugar but avoid…
