Angie’s Homemade Herbed Salt

by Angie on December 5, 2013

This year for Christmas, I’m giving some non traditional home made goodies. One of my favorites is the herbed salt. It’s inexpensive to make, and I’d like to think functional and yummy. Plus now my house smells wonderful! Angie’s Homemade Herbed Salt Preparation Time – 35 minutes Cooking Time – 0 minutes Ingredients Coarse Kosher […]


Angie’s Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

by Angie on October 3, 2013

The deliciousness of the recipe is my 2nd favorite thing about it! Mostly I love that so many of the items can be substituted. Such as the crust; I used crushed cornflakes some fried onions & parmesan cheese.  You can use panko, bread crumbs, crushed funions, whatever you have! For the cream cheese mix, I […]


Angie’s Blackberry Quick Bread

by Angie on September 5, 2013

It’s the time of year when jams and jellies are in abundance at farmers markets and roadside stands. Or you can make you own jam like Erin does! She used blueberries & strawberries in her recipe, but it would work the same with blackberries!  When you stock up on jams, go ahead and grab some […]


Angie’s Wonton Taquitos

by Angie on August 1, 2013

I started telling my husband about a wonderful recipe I was creating using wonton wrappers as taco shells. I thought the kids would enjoy some baby tacos. (Everything tastes better when it has baby in the title). He replied, “You mean taquitos?” I said “What? That’s a thing?” and after a google search, sure enough, […]


Angie’s Mess Free BLT

by Angie on July 4, 2013

Nothing beats a good BLT. Only, it can get frustrating when the bacon pieces fall out and you have to put them back in for each bite. I have devised a plan to thwart the escaping bacon.  I weave it. First of all you have to bake the bacon so it’s flat. Fried bacon gets […]


Angie’s Baked Mac & Cheese Balls

by Angie on June 6, 2013

There’s a small family owned restaurant near my house called Philly’s. I am addicted to their mac & cheese bites and needed to find a way to make them at home because Philly’s isn’t open 27/4. I also try to bake instead of fry and these mac & cheese balls are perfect. I suppose they […]


Angie’s Beef and Blue Cheese Bites

by Angie on May 2, 2013

I love a nice tender steak topped with crumbled blue cheese. That got me thinking about how to make a recipe to get close to that flavor yet enjoyable for the kids and used what I had on hand. By the time I got it in the oven, I was really craving that meaty blue […]


Angie’s Vegetable Cheese Balls

by Angie on April 4, 2013

This is an easy little appetizer that’s quick to whip up and light on your wallet. Even more so if you have access to a garden! I’ve also used these as a side dish with some ranch dressing to dip them in! If you can handle some spice, chop up a small chili to throw in the […]


Angie’s Stuffed Italian Loaf

by Angie on March 7, 2013

The other night my 5 year old Liza wanted to “cook” dinner by herself. I thought for a minute, and decided yes with appropriate supervision, of course. The easiest recipe I know is also pretty darn frugal. Just use whatever meat, cheese and dressing you have on hand! And, yes, Liza made the entire thing, […]


Angie’s Slow Cooker Chicken Lettuce Wraps

by Angie on February 7, 2013

I love my slow cooker. I love coming up with new recipes to put in my slow cooker. I love the compliments I get for great dinners, but secretly I feel guilty because I know most of the tender goodness was done by the crock pot. That said, the Chicken Lettuce Wraps turned out fantastic. […]
