Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread with Fresh Jalapenos

I caught your attention. Didn’t I! This is some DAMN fine bread, and I’m pretty sure I would not have made it had I not been inspired by Baker’s Secret. They approached me and asked if I would do a sweet and a savory dish with the two pans they provide me. It was ON!

I want to be a gardener. I REALLY do. I, however have a not so green thumb. Plus with moving from rental to rental, it almost seems like a waste to invest so much time and money into a garden. Luckily I have good friends who DO have gardens. YAY! This past weekend my friend

How Do You Pronounce Gyros?

How Do You Pronounce Gyros?

I know all my military friends can relate to this. Every place we have moved (and we have moved a LOT) there is always a restaurant or food we miss terribly. Our first move from Montana to San Diego, we missed burritos and curly fries with “white sauce” from TK’s in Hamilton. It took me

Everything is better with bacon. No. I do not exaggerate.  EVERYTHING. I just had to get that out in the open. I am a bacon addict. There. I’ve said it. Onward and upward. A few years ago, our family took a trip to California to visit my husbands side of the family. I truly consider

Ooooh, It’s like Buttah!

I have not posted in quite a while. Once again, my life had turned into chaos. Once again, things are beginning to settle. A little. In the past month I have moved out of one large house into a small house. We had to have a huge garage sale to help downsize and we still

Pasta Salad with an International Flare…it’s dreamy

Our household happens to be filled with food snobs. I am not afraid to admit, over the years we have fine tuned our taste buds to the point of turning us into massive foodies. So much so, that my family can tell INSTANTLY if I try to sneak in something that they are normally opposed

Top o’ the Marnin’ to Ya! Happy St. Patty’s Day Weekend!!

I have eaten pasties all my life. Pasties are meat hand pies to those not in the know. Here in MT they were made by wives for their husbands to take to work in the mines. Easy, portable, and hearty enough to get you through the day. My mom makes GREAT pasties. I have her
