Remember Sunday dinner–gathering with loved ones or friends to share a delicious, home-cooked meal that was savored slowly?
Can you hear the conversations–the puns your grandpa would make, the chatter of aunts and grandmas, the antics of your favorite uncle? How about the smells of real, homemade food–grandma’s fresh bread, homemade apple pie, the family recipe for roasted chicken that had been passed down for generations?
Close your eyes. Think back to mom or grandma’s kitchen when you were a kid. Imagine the aroma of buttery, sweet, yeasty homemade bread wafting out of the oven and curling towards you.
Picture the soft, fluffy bread–still hot from the oven–with a dollop of sweet cream butter slowly melting into the pillowy bread. Remember the hot, buttery deliciousness of the fresh bread as you took your first bite. Feel all the feels. Now, imagine that this is happening in YOUR kitchen.

What is better than warm, cinnamony, syrupy French toast?
Ok, probably not much. Seriously, who doesn’t love French toast? As I am typing this I can almost taste the buttery, mapley, yumminess! Mmmmmmm! My kids LOVE breakfast food too! French toast, pancakes, waffles, you name it! Unfortunately, sometimes there just isn’t time to make it the old-fashioned way.
Sometimes you just need a good recipe–something simple and tasty to make on a weeknight. Bonus if it is an instantpot recipe! I am a great fan of the Instantpot and I frequently use it as both a slow cooker and a pressure cooker! The beauty of the Instantpot (or any slow cooker) is that you can put your ingredients in and then just leave it! Do what you got to do. What woman doesn’t love that?
This delicious and simple soup recipe is one of my favorites for a cold day! It is creamy, savory, delicious and perfect with fresh bread or a nice grilled cheese! I like to make this soup with sausage, but it can easily be vegetarian as well!!
This is not the Tuna Noodle Casserole your mother made you, it is so much better!
I have always loved Tuna Noodle Casserole (really any casserole, or “hotdish” as we called it in Minnesota). There is something just so comforting about its creamy, cheesy goodness. As I have grown up and my palate has matured, I started tweaking my favorites. This recipe is a slight twist on the old classic. It maintains all the tastiness of the original with a bit of sophistication. Incidentally, this is also the only way my kids will eat tuna. Enjoy!
Need an easy recipe for dinner? Look no further!
Stuffed peppers are definitely one of my favorite dishes to make. They are so versatile, so fun, and so delicious. Over the years I have made several variations on this recipe. The possibilities are nearly endless. All you need is a bell pepper of your choice, a meat (Or not! Go ahead, make ’em vegetarian!), a starch like rice or couscous, salsa or diced tomatoes, cheese, and a few seasonings. You can choose a theme and build from there–Italian, southwest, Greek!
Awww the memories . . .
Hungarian Mushroom Soup–so creamy and delicious! To me, this recipe is so much of my childhood. Every birthday, special dinner, family event, I requested to go to my favorite restaurant—Sibley Station in Pequot Lakes, Minnesota. I always ordered the same thing—Hungarian Mushroom Soup. In fact, when I first started ordering this soup as a pre-teen, I didn’t even like mushrooms. I just loved the taste of the broth so much. I would drink all the broth and leave the mushrooms. Over time I grew to love mushrooms as well—you could say this soup taught me to love mushrooms.
Easy Weeknight Meal
Looking for a simple dinner? I usually am. This is one that I have made few times, and it is always a hit. What I love about this recipe is that it pretty much cooks itself, but the end result is yummy and homey! It’s also fast—ready in only half an hour!
