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”

Sprinkler Saturday

What do you do when it’s hot outside and you need to keep the troops entertained??? Go outside and play in the sprinkler!!! And Garen got out his fancy lenses to capture a few quick photos. I think they turned out pretty cool, don’t you?!?

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”

Brunswick Stew- Instant Pot Style

This recipe was Garen’s request for me to make in the Instant Pot so it was the first recipe that required more than 3 ingredients. I was a little leery since I’d never had Brunswick Stew and didn’t even know what to expect. As I always do when cooking something I don’t have a go-toContinue reading “Brunswick Stew- Instant Pot Style”

Sweet Saturday: Salted Carmel Pretzel Brownies

Today I’m gearing up for Nacho Night. More on that in a separate blog. I had some boxes of Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie mix that have been calling to me. Judge me if you must but if you’ve not tried this mix, found at Sam’s Club, you are missing out. They’re super easy and everyContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: Salted Carmel Pretzel Brownies”

Repurposing Food: Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle 

This is another repurposing recipe. When I say recipe, I really mean more like guidelines for making something you need to get rid of look good. See another post for another similar trifle.  I had some leftover pound cake in the freezer and wanted to fix something with it and incorporate cheesecake….because who doesn’t likeContinue reading “Repurposing Food: Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle “

Icebox Oreo Pie

This is another one of my “throw together what you’ve got” recipes. A few weeks back I bought a couple of chocolate pie crusts off of the clearance rack and put them in the freezer.  Cheapskate, frugal, thrifty. Call me what you want. I was glad I had them the day we decided to haveContinue reading “Icebox Oreo Pie”

Baked Parmesan Crusted Zucchini

I love zucchini any way it’s cooked. Growing up, my Grammy made the best fried zucchini. My mouth waters just remembering it.  I rarely make it because the frying isn’t all that healthy and it’s also kind of a pain. I decided to take a stab at doing an oven baked, slightly-altered version with some freshContinue reading “Baked Parmesan Crusted Zucchini”

Spicy Zucchini Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs

I’ve been planning to cook zucchini spaghetti for two months and never have actually done it, despite it being on the menu. Tonight I finally did since I had plenty of zucchini in the fridge to be used.    I went into this not having a plan but I  knew that I had to useContinue reading “Spicy Zucchini Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs”

Grilled Sriracha Honey Chicken

  Because I knew Garen Grillmaster was already going to be grilling Cilanro Ranch Chicken for us last night, I went ahead whipped some sauce up for him to cook some Grilled Sriracha Honey Chicken.  Garen loves Sriracha…He puts it on an estimated 40% of his food, so when I saw the pin of Sweet Sriracha Chicken from KaceyContinue reading “Grilled Sriracha Honey Chicken”
