Ritz Lemon Dilly Sole

I was having some friends over for dinner last month and decided to have sole fillets, but wanted to try something different. I remembered I had some Epicure Lemon Dilly Dip Mix that I hadn’t tried yet and I LOVE dill!! I began to look up other recipes online to find something I might like, but none of them were quite what I was looking for. So I gathered a few ideas and created my own recipe. When I made {Read More}

Almond Tea Cookies

To continue with my Christmas cookie baking frenzy, I got this recipe for Almond Tea Cookies from my mom, and like the Coffee Fingers, she said she got it from an old church friend, this time named Marge Martens, and who knows if she was the original creator or if she also got it from someone else, but whoever created them, they are delicious!! When you read the ingredients on this one, you may just have to turn a blind {Read More}

Coffee Fingers

I’ve been posting some pictures of the Christmas cookies that I’ve been making this year on my Instagram and Facebook feeds and someone requested this recipe, so I figured I’d post it on my blog. This is my first year making my own Christmas cookies, as I’ve been content to mooch off of my mom until now. But now that I have kids of my own along with pregnancy cravings and nesting instincts, I’ve been on a baking frenzy the {Read More}

Homemade Tomato Soup

Homemade Tomato Soup is something I grew up with and which has always been a family favorite that my mom learned from her mom. When I moved out, I would always try and get a stash from my mom for my cupboard, but as I started my own family, I finally learned how to make it myself and now it’s a tradition for myself and my sisters to spend a day of making soup with my mom each fall to {Read More}

Baked Stuffed Pasta Shells

A couple weeks ago, I went through a bunch of recipes that I had ripped out of magazines that had been sitting in a folder for years, and I inputted them into my recipe program, MasterCook Deluxe (which I love!), and was then inspired to actually try to make them!  I think Joe was a little overwhelmed when I tried 3 or 4 new recipes last week, so I toned it down to only 2 new recipes this week.   But {Read More}

Cottage Cheese Rolls

I recently gave you all the recipe to my favorite cookies, but Cottage Cheese Rolls are my favorite dessert of all time!  They are so amazingly delicious, that I’m pretty sure they will be served at the marriage supper of the Lamb! 😉  Now, if like most people I share this recipe with, you think, “I don’t think I like the sound of cottage cheese in a dessert”, let me reassure you that you will never know there’s cottage cheese {Read More}

My Favorite Cookies

So, I’ve been wanting to post this recipe for quite some time because they are my absolute favorite cookies in the world and I feel that you are all greatly deprived if you have never had them!  Unfortunately for those with peanut allergies, you will have to remain sorrowfully deprived, but I will pray for your divine healing so that you can partake of their yummy goodness! Chocolate Peanutbutter Chip Cookies 1 cup margarine, softened 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 {Read More}

Spicy Sweet Potato and Smoked Sausage Soup

Since I’ve been off of dairy to see if it’ll help ease my little guy’s tummy pains, I’ve been searching for new recipes that don’t use milk or cheese, since many of my staple menu items use these ingredients.  I tried this recipe a little while ago for the first time and really loved it, so I thought I would share it with you all, with a few minor modifications that I’ve made to suit our personal taste.  I got {Read More}
