Minnesota Wild Rice Soup – Teach Me Tuesday 40

My Featured Favorite… Is this Minnesota Wild Rice Soup from Carrie over at A Mother’s Shadow. Doesn’t this soup look hearty, delicious and WARM?  I’m not sure if you’ve noticed or not but my features the past couple of weeks have been soups. I know tons of people in the Northern States are about to go…


Carrot Cupcakes with Orange Glaze

Oh my goodness, you guys! Have I got a yummy treat for you! I have been wanting to make Sigrid’s Carrot Cake recipe from The Pioneer Woman but have been putting it off because I didn’t want to use the cream cheese frosting that topped the cake. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE cream…


Classic Deli Wraps

This classic deli wraps recipe is great for those nights that you just don’t want to cook. I had one of those nights last night. It literally took me about 15 minutes to whip these little delicious bad boys up and pass them around. Served them with a banana, an apple and two store bought…


Chicken Taco Rice

Have you ever had the Crunchy Taco Hamburger Helper? We have. But not anymore. I created this chicken taco rice recipe for my youngest daughter because (1) that specific flavor of hamburger helper was her favorite, (2)it’s way cheaper to make it homemade-I even use my own homemade taco seasoning- and (3) it only takes…

Reese’s Spreads Muddy Buddies

I must say that when I took a small spoonful of this Reese’s Spreads Peanut Butter Chocolate to see what it tasted like, I literally moaned! Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is one of my favorite candies and it tastes JUST like it only smoother and without the wrapper.  Now don’t get me wrong, this Reese’s…

Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

Here is a recipe I like to make when I have leftover sweet potatoes.  The recipe (below) has you boiling whole potatoes. You definitely can if you don’t have any leftover but I like to wait until I have already cooked potatoes to make this. Now don’t get me wrong, this sweet potato shepherd’s pie…


Spinach and Cheese Dumplings

Here is a meatless meal that is so delicious that you won’t even miss the meat. And that’s saying a lot for my family. Its spaghetti and meatballs, minus the meat, add in spinach and cheese…well you get the picture, MEATLESS and yummy and filling. It’s not too often we eat a meatless meal around…


Blah Blah Blah… New Year New Me and Teach Me Tuesday

Turkey and Cheese Meatballs w/ Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

I started to label this recipe as “spicy” but it’s just not (to me, that is). My family says it’s a tad bit on the spicy side but I can’t tell it. With the addition of ground red pepper in the honey mustard sauce and the use of pepper jack cheese in the turkey meatballs…
