Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes

Although it was not that long ago that I posted a very good recipe for oatmeal pancakes, I decided to post another recipe from the same cookbook for a slightly different version of oatmeal pancakes in honor of National Oatmeal Day (October 29). This recipe creates a fairly dense pancake with a slightly sweet, almost […]

Wilted Lettuce Salad with Bacon Dressing

Wilted lettuce salad used to be something that I would only have in the spring, early summer or early fall when I could harvest the leaf lettuce from our garden. However, today I can buy great leaf lettuce almost year round at a hydroponic grower in our region making wilted lettuce salad a year-round treat. […]

Scrapple and Apples

The fall seems to always bring out the desire in me for comfort food.  Perhaps, the cooler temperatures have me wanting something more hearty than my preferred light summer cuisine.  Perhaps,  wonderful memories of fun family-centered falls of the past have me wanting my Mom’s cooking.  Whatever it is, my husband must have some of […]

Homemade Vegetable Alphabet Soup

What kid doesn’t love vegetable alphabet soup? Okay, I guess there are a number who won’t touch anything that looks like a vegetable. In fact, I was surprised as a child that not all my friends liked it because alphabet soup was my favorite. I loved making words and was always excited to see what […]

Crescent Chicken

I have been working on creating some new chicken recipes to enter Pilgram’s 22nd Annual Winning Taste Recipe Contest. My family, of course, are my taste tester and worst critics. However, I think I may end up with a couple of new recipes to submit. I am very excited about the contest. Pilgrim asked me […]

A Better Breakfast Sandwich

I believe the English muffin breakfast sandwiches I make at home are better than those I can buy at a fast food restaurant. Why? My sandwiches cost me less and I control what I put in them. The money saved may not be dramatic but it can add up. Locally, I spend around $2.00 at […]

Smoked Salmon Omelette or Omelet

I can’t believe that I ran into a problem writing this post over how to spell the dish. First, my husband walks by the desk and tells me he did not think I had it spelled correctly. So, I checked it by writing it in the body of the post and the spell checker flagged […]

Indian Fry Bread and Taco

When crossing South Dakota this summer, we had the good fortune to be able to stop and drive through part of the Badlands National Park. Although the park had amazing vistas, I never thought I would be writing about the food I ate there. We were hungry by the time we made our way to […]

Oatmeal Pancakes

I had no idea when I saw the recipe for these pancakes in my Lehman’s Anniversary Cookbook that these pancakes would be such a big hit with my six-year-old. She loved them! I guess I should of known she would considering she likes pancakes and loves oatmeal. I must confess that I normally do not […]
