Venison Stroganoff

Yesterday afternoon I had a nice little cat nap, which was fantastic. But then it was already time for dinner. And what was I going to make? That never happens, right?!? I’d already thawed some of the ground deer meat in preparation for prepping a few meals tomorrow so I threw a pound into aContinue reading “Venison Stroganoff”

Instant Pot Veggie Soup with Venison

If you hate the idea of hunting, please don’t read any further but, please know we do shoot things to eat vs. killing just for fun. With that out of the way, I’m happy to say that Garen killed a deer this year. It had been a few years and my freezer was jonesing forContinue reading “Instant Pot Veggie Soup with Venison”

Mommy Review Monday: Dyson v8 Animal Vacuum Stick

This vacuum really sucks! Ok, ok….I’ll cut out the cheesiness for now. But really, this vacuum has been worth every penny.  It’s so great we named it:  Mike Dyson.  I know, I know….I said that I’d cut out the cheese.  I couldn’t resist though. Is there anything sexier than a man doing household chores?!? Ladies,Continue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Dyson v8 Animal Vacuum Stick”

Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust

I love blueberries….any way you fix them. Growing up, my Grammy made a lot of blueberry muffins, blueberry cobblers, and, occasionally, a blueberry pie. For quite a few summers in a row, one of my Uncle Mo’s good friends provided a steady supply of fresh blueberries.  Grammy always froze them and we had (almost) freshContinue reading “Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust”

Wellness Wednesday: Eating Healthy on the Road

I’m on the road a lot for work. Eating healthy on the road is hard. Extra hard when you love food and you use food as a way to keep you entertained and/or you have a 3-4 hour drive. Here’s what I’ve been doing lately to make it work: Pack my lunch and snacks when IContinue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Eating Healthy on the Road”

Snacking Healthy: Salted Chocolate Coconut DeLight

My adventure on Noom and my new healthy lifestyle continues. (if I was saying this out loud I would’ve used air quotes around healthy lifestyle) And as I continue to Noom right along, I’m learning how to better use my very limited calories to the ensure I’m satisfied from not only a hunger standpoint butContinue reading “Snacking Healthy: Salted Chocolate Coconut DeLight”

Wellness Wednesday: Nooming Right Along

Yesterday, I was scanning Facebook and I ran across Noom….again.  I’ve seen it about a dozen times on my feed.  I guess their paid ad worked because I finally clicked on it, opened it up, and decided to give it a try. I’m on day 2 and so far, so good.  Being a Weight WatcherContinue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Nooming Right Along”

Mommy Review Monday: Member’s Mark 14 Inch Non-Stick Fry Pan

I love my Member’s Mark 14 Inch Non-Stick Fry Pan. I bought my first one about 10 years ago from Sam’s Club. In the last year or two it hasn’t been sitting evenly on my stove-top. I believe, between Garen and I, one of us probably washed it before it was completely cool, causing itContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Member’s Mark 14 Inch Non-Stick Fry Pan”

Hippity Hop-pity, Easter’s on It’s Way: Easter Bunny Garden with Peeps

My Mom always sang us the “Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail” song around this time. And, between her and Grammy, we were sure to have plenty of candy, including Peeps! I honestly don’t think you can have Easter without these sugary, marshmallowy, packages of cuteness. Yesterday, I needed to make a run for some labelsContinue reading “Hippity Hop-pity, Easter’s on It’s Way: Easter Bunny Garden with Peeps”

Mommy Review Monday: Ceramic “Non-stick” Instant Pot Bowl

After the first two times cooking in the Instant Pot, Garen, who usually cleans the kitchen after I cook, suggested that we look for a “non-stick” version.  Sooooo….I went to Amazon.  Where else? Here’s what we found and purchased:  Genuine Instate Pot Ceramic Non-Stick Interior Coated Inner Cooking Pot- 8 Quart. Positives: It is lightweight. Continue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Ceramic “Non-stick” Instant Pot Bowl”
