Frito Fruckies


I got this recipe from my sister-in-law. Be warned. Addicting.

Turkey Potpie


I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website. It’s an old Cooking for 2 recipe that I converted to make one pot pie. My husband doesn’t get really excited about food, so I was extremely excited when he told me that this was VERY good and said I need to make this more often. It’s a great recipe and the flavor is wonderful.

Cheese Tortellini Pasta Salad


I found this recipe on The Chickpea Chickadee blog. It’s very similar to another cheese tortellini salad I make, but I think this one has a slight edge.

Rhubarb Custard Bars


This recipe is from the KFYR Radio 75th Anniversary cookbook. It sounded like a lot of work, but ended up being quite easy to make…and the result is DELICIOUS! FYI…I consider this more of a dessert than a bar.

Taco Bake


I found this recipe at via Pinterest. It’s a great recipe…simple ingredients, easy to make, quick preparation, and most importantly, we all liked it! I served with shredded lettuce, sour cream, and salsa. Taco rice or Spanish rice would be great on the side as well.

Spaghetti Salad


This is a salad a family friend made when I was just a kid. It’s continued to be a favorite of mine over the years. Sometimes I’ll make this with rotini or tri-color rotini, but spaghetti is still my favorite way to make it.

Captain Russell’s Jambalaya


I found this recipe in the Feb/March 2011 issue of Simple & Delicious. I’ve made it a couple times and it is absolutely delicious! I love the sausage and shrimp, but I’d seriously be happy with just the rice…it’s that good. This recipe has great, great flavor with just the right amount of heat.

Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars


I love frosted sugar cookies, so when I found this recipe on Pinterest I knew I needed to try it. The recipe didn’t disappoint – these bars are great and I really love the frosting. Note: I found another recipe on Pinterest that was basically this same recipe doubled and baked in a 13×18-inch pan.

Broccoli Grape Salad


This is one of my favorite salads. This isn’t really a ‘recipe’ yet, but I want to at least get the general idea down in writing since I generally have to do a google search every time I want to make it. I also love that my son, who ‘doesn’t like broccoli’, devours this stuff.
