Bacon candy

Bacon Candy

Bacon candy is sweet, salty, spicy and crispy. When I first heard of it, I wondered if it was an appetizer or a dessert. That just shows how limited my thinking was. It can also be crumpled in a salad, placed on a hamburger, or used to garnish a Bloody […]

 
Grace's Egg Muffins

Grace’s Egg Muffins

Loaded with veggies, cheese and nuts, egg muffins can be eaten warm out of the oven or reheated in the microwave. With this make-ahead meal, you can get several breakfasts and have only one pan to wash.  Store extra muffins in a baggie or food storage container in the refrigerator […]

 
Sausage, Kale and Potato Soup

Sausage, Kale and Potato Soup

Sausage, kale and potato soup has a yummy combination of flavors. I make it in an Instant Pot. If you don’t have one, you can use a large soup pot. The potatoes may take longer to cook. In the weeks leading up to a motorhome trip, I prepare several dishes […]

 
Ginger Pear Martini

Ginger Pear Martinis

Are you looking for a new cocktail for the New Year?  Ginger pear martinis are my current favorite. They are made with just three ingredients: Absolut Pear Vodka, King’s Ginger Liqueur, and Kevita Lemon Ginger Sparkling Probiotic drink.

Swedish Meatballs over Zucchini Noodles

Swedish Meatballs

Jim and I have this silly tradition (I love it, but it does get a bit ridiculous at times). We call it the 12 Hours of Christmas.  It starts out like many traditional Christmas celebrations. First, there’s Christmas Eve services, followed by dinner with the family (several generations when our […]

 
barbecued shrimp

Barbecued Shrimp

It’s hard to say what I like best about this recipe: the barbecued shrimp itself or French bread dipped in the savory, buttery sauce.  Twenty years ago, this was one of my favorite ways to cook shrimp. In 2003, after I eliminated gluten from my diet, I quit making it […]

Turkey Nachos with Cranberry Salsa

What do you do with all that leftover turkey after Thanksgiving? Turkey Nachos with Cranberry Salsa, that’s what! I found this recipe in a Whole Foods flier years ago. I changed a few ingredients, then down-sized it for my one-butt kitchen.  I’ve never attempted to cook a turkey in our […]

Lobster grilled cheese sandwich

Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Lobster! Who doesn’t love lobster? We’ve had three memorable lobster meals in our motorhome in Utah (what?!), Maine, and Colorado. I’ll tell you about all three, and share the recipe for the last one, a lobster grilled cheese sandwich.  When we got our first motorhome in 2002, our first RV […]

 
Guacamole with Pomegranate and Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds

Guacamole with Pomegranate and Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds

Oh, happy day! Pomegranates are in season. When I made this for the first time during the holidays, I called it Christmas Guacamole because of the colors. I like it enough that it’s not just for Christmas anymore. Peeled pomegranate arils (fancy name for the seeds) are available in the produce […]
