Dad’s Meatloaf

In this bleak season when the skies are the color of granite and the cold unrelentingly grips your toes, I feel the need for good comfort food. And in my mind, there are few better comfort foods than meatloaf.

Easy Oven Fajitas

All of the taste, none of the cast iron skillet burns!

Enjoy Life Haul!

The other day, my wife opened the front door. When she did, we were surprised to find this on the doorstep!

Daiya Cream Cheeze

Some things are easy to replace in recipes. Other things, though, are a bit of a challenge. Cream cheese is one of those.

Enjoy Life Grain & Seed Bars

Y’all, Enjoy Life has done it again. It’s no secret that we love Enjoy Life products in our house. For Halloween, we ordered some of their Halloween Chocolate Minis and took them to people in our neighborhood beforehand so Reese would be able to get treats when we went trick-or-treating. We even ordered some to put…

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

My world has been turned upside down.  2+2= yellow and I’m totally ok with that. I’m pretty sure that I’m one of the only people in the country that doesn’t like avocado.  I know all the health benefits, and I know it’s super popular, but I just can’t get over the taste. Blasphemy, I know….

Crescent Cinnamon Rolls!

A delicious breakfast, and you don’t even have to go to the airport! It seems to be general knowledge that you should bake cookies if you are trying to sell a house.  The smell of baking cookies evokes a feeling of home.  If you ask me, though, you would be better off making cinnamon rolls….

Watermelon Pineapple Ice Pops

So simple…. and so delicious! You guys.  Seriously.  These ice pops…… Ok, so it’s summer in the American Midwest.  If you aren’t familiar with Midwest, let me clue you in.  It’s hot.  I mean, HOT.  Now, I know we’ve got nothing on Arizona or New Mexico in the heat department, but they cannot compete with…

Chorreadas (Costa Rican sweet corn pancakes)

Un desayuno costaricense muy rico! By day, I am a high school Spanish teacher.  One month ago, two other teachers (good friends of mine) and I took a group of 24 students on a week-long trip to Costa Rica.  It was an amazing trip!  I had been twice before, but as a student.  This was…

Sunbeam Igloo Snow Cone Maker

The other day, Michelle had an idea.  It was a great idea.  Snow cones. I love snow cones!  When we were in college, there was a snow cone place near campus called Ice Deli where I was regular customer.  Any time it was a nice day, I would strap on my roller blades and head down…

Cherry Blueberry Ice Pops

Who knew cherries and blueberries could be so good? We just got back from a family vacation to the western part of Michigan (specifically Grand Haven and Muskegon).  The kids had a blast.  I’ve been to Lake Michigan before, but I had forgotten how beautiful that area is. Two things Michigan is well-known for are…

Cinnamon Rolls!!!

At the time of this post, I am on my way back from a trip to Costa Rica.  I’ll write more about that later, but because I have been out of the country for a week, I don’t have a recipe for this week.  Instead, I wanted to share one of our favorite products.  Let’s…
