A rich and creamy Bacon Pierogi Casserole dinner recipe. I am a big fan of Costco (and no, they didn’t pay me to say that!). I love all the natural light, I love the prices and that I can buy in bulk, and most of all, I love that they serve snacks (ahem… samples) while you shop. I had never had pierogis when I noticed that my local Costco was carrying them. If you’ve never heard of pierogis, they’re basically ravioli stuffed with mashed potatoes and cheese. I kept waiting to get to try a sample, but I’ve never seen
Autumn Roasted Sweet Potato and Arugula Salad has great fall flavors. Many of the ingredients are in season during the fall. It gives you a healthy way to enjoy the flavors of autumn. My diet has recently become very limited. I have had to cut out dairy, beans, nuts, and carbonated drinks. Some days it’s hard for me to find something to eat. I was hunting for a salad that used what I have ready in the garden and was something I could eat. I stumbled upon a picture and a description of the perfect salad. It didn’t have a
Delicious Crock Pot Dr. Pepper Baked Beans with caramelized onions and bacon! Many years ago, before having kids, I took a dutch oven class. I was in college, and I needed an elective, and I thought dutch oven cooking would be fun. In the class, we were put into groups of 3-4 students. Each week we would have to come up with a recipe to make, and then we would make that recipe in a dutch oven, and when all the recipes were finished we would put the dutch ovens in a line and dish up. It was a really
A fun and delicious layered salad with something for everyone! My mom has been making this salad for as long as I can remember, and it’s always been a hit with crowds! It’s great for a potluck, barbecue, or any get together! I love that this is a salad that I can throw together pretty quickly, it goes a long ways, and I always get asked for the recipe. When my husband and I started dating, I was surprised that he didn’t hardly eat vegetables at all. His idea of salad was some iceberg lettuce. My mom had always pushed
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is a sweet and savory side dish. Ready in 30 minutes and perfect for dinner tonight. Enjoy asparagus season! My friend Brooks’ nickname for The Hardworking Husband is Bacon. As you may have guessed he gets this nickname because he LOVES bacon. He would eat bacon every day if I cooked it. We always have bacon in our house. And I often buy 15 lbs of bacon at a time and freeze it. When I came across a recipe for Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, I knew I had to try it. I made it for a dinner party.
Chicken BLT Taco Salad is great for summer time when you want food that isn’t so heavy and it doesn’t require using your oven. In the summer, we light to eat lighter. The heavy food just doesn’t sit well when we are hot. In fact it doesn’t even look appetizing. Back when I lived in Texas, I often would eat half a watermelon for dinner. That doesn’t really fly when you are married. Husband usually want a real dinner. This Chicken BLT Taco Salad is perfect for feeding hungry husbands when it’s just too hot to eat. Since we’ve been
Nutty Broccoli Salad is the perfect BBQ side dish. It has great flavor and textures. The dressing gives it a little bit of creaminess. Today has been one of those days. I had a plan for the day and then my boss called. She had a different plan for my day. And that’s the job that pays the bills, I needed to go with her plan. But after working like crazy all day, I am feeling a little nutty. Some software I was using wasn’t working with me and would crash about every 15 minutes or so. Thankfully, I got
Creamy Baked Ricotta Dip with Bacon is a great appetizer. I love cheesy dips, but I wanted to try making something I hadn’t ever made before. As I was thinking about what to make, I remembered some ricotta cheese in the fridge from making lasagna soup. So I decided to try making a hot dip using that ricotta. I also had some bacon in the fridge, and it wasn’t enough for the whole family, so I thought I’d use that as well. And so the idea of Baked Ricotta Dip with Bacon came into being. Baked Ricotta Dip is creamy
Cheesy Hashbrown Bites are a wonderful appetizer with cheese, bacon and potatoes. Great for an appetizer dinner or a party. If you don’t know Lucy, Jamie or I and haven’t read our about us page, you may not know that we all live in Idaho. Yes, the state with all the potatoes. Now if you were to say that to a Northern Idahoan, they would be irritated. They grow paper up there. Well really trees that they turn into paper. But Southern Idahoans grow potatoes and lot of them. Many of my friends growing up grew up on potato farms.
Mini Cheese Balls are a fantastic variation of a favorite appetizer. These Mini Cheese Balls have bacon in them which make them a big hit. Last week I shared that the Hardworking Husband and I will be having appetizers for Thanksgiving. We will be spending the day with one else besides each other with which we are happy. I am looking forward to sleeping in. I spent a week in Texas and it is so nice to be back in my own bed and to not have an alarm clock is going to be fantastic. I also love watching the
