It is truly fantastic what wonderful things can be made from cheese and tortillas. My favorites to make at home are breakfast burritos and quesadillas. Yes, they are extremely simple, but they are also extremely versatile and delicious. We often have them in the same week because I like to use leftovers. First, I make […]

Craving Skyline Chili

This cold, rainy day makes me want some good chili. The result of that craving combined with my desire to go to Cincinnati leaves me wanting Cincinnati-style chili. It is said to be an acquired taste. Well, I have acquired it. My favorite is the chain, Skyline Chili. I love their 4-way chili, their Coney […]

Tasty Skillet Green Beans

My little sister came up with a fantastic green bean recipe as an alternative to the much beloved green bean casserole at Thanksgiving one year. Hers was cooked on top of the stove and included pan “fried” onions and mushrooms. It was a huge hit. I did not have any mushrooms, but I found some […]

Delightful Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

I have gone and done something totally crazy. No, I mean really crazy. I decided to make Cream of Mushroom soup. What is crazy about that?  It is one of those dishes that my mother-in-law makes, everybody loves, and often requests her recipe. It is bad enough that I once again tried to replicate her […]

Hearty Vegetable Beef Soup

Delicious Baked Oatmeal

When reading my new cookbook, 55 Years and Still Cookin’: Lehman’s Anniversary Cookbook, I noticed six recipes for baked oatmeal. Although we had never even heard of baked oatmeal, my husband suggested we give it a try. I figure an item must be good if it has multiple recipes in a compilation cookbook. It was […]
