I usually try to make this the day before we need it or at least a few hours ahead of time so that the flavors can meld together but if you need to use right away it’s still delicious.
This makes a big batch… about 2-3 cups worth… so you may want to half it if you don’t need as much.
We reuse some old squirt bottle from other condiments to store this in once it has cooled down. I have also kept it in glass jars but they are a little more difficult to control when pouring.
This is great on sandwiches and can be used as a salad dressing as well. My family has put it on a variety of different foods and even used it as a dip for chips or in place of ketchup on their fries!
Tip: blend your onion in the food processor or blender and add a bit of the water to it so it gets smooth!Continue reading “Sweet Onion Sauce”
Oh my! How did I not know that fried squash blossoms were a thing?
I just happened to search for ways to use squash blossoms the other day as we have several veggies starting to ripen and it seemed such a waste for those big beautiful blossoms to just wither away. That’s when I found out that fried squash blossoms were a thing and I had to give them a try.Continue reading “Sourdough Battered Squash Blossoms”
This recipe is pretty easy to make and I’m sure you could adjust it in many ways to suit your taste. I love that this is full of fiber, protein, and lots of healthy fats that little bodies and brains need!
I’m not sure how long this will keep in the fridge as I need to make a new batch every 3 to 4 days because my kiddos just gobble it up! Little miss loves this for breakfast or a snack.Continue reading “Easy Chia Pudding”
Chemo Round 6: Day 1: Final Round!
It’s been a long while since we’ve posted any recipes but here’s one we tried out this morning… we started it last night because it does take a little prep but the kids thoroughly enjoyed them. Mr. Joey said it ranked in the ‘Top 20’ of his all time favorite breakfasts.Continue reading “Sourdough Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls”
We celebrated our Thanksgiving yesterday as Shyanne is scheduled to be admitted tomorrow for Round 6 of chemo. This should be her final round and we are praying she gets through it smoothly and that we can hopefully be home before Christmas! Yay!Continue reading “Happy Thanksgiving… just a little early”
This is a family favorite that is so easy to adapt to make your own unique fudge flavors. You can add crushed cookies and/or candies to this to make it extra special as well as adding colorings to customize it for different holidays or occasions. The possibilities are endless!Continue reading “White Chocolate Fudge”
How are y’all doing?
I’ve started feeling a tad bit better this week… not having constant nausea like I previously had although it still hits and still knocks me down from time to time. I have managed to make all of our ‘normal’ breakfasts for the week… yay! The kids were happy to have French Toast and Pancakes again. I had cheated and bought quite a bit of cereal over the past few weeks… they like cereal but they missed their hot meals.
I had used up all of my freezer meals and was forced to cook this week… dinner was not always on the table at the usual time but it did get made. Sometimes dinner didn’t quite make sense as I was just pulling things out of the cabinets in the order I found them… lol.

I love to bake and decorate cakes for my family. This is great on carrot cake! Continue reading “Cream Cheese Icing”
This recipe is similar to one the I found when I was pregnant with my second son. I suffered from some horrible morning sickness and this syrup and some homemade ginger tea really helped get me through those first few months. I later delivered a very healthy baby.
This can be used to sweeten drinks like tea and/or lemonade or used in a variety of other ways. I like to take the strained, sliced ginger root and let it dry for something similar to candied ginger. It is a little spicy though so be prepared if you pop a piece in your mouth. Continue reading “Simple Ginger Syrup”
I love mushrooms of every kind and I am always trying to add them to so many dishes because of their amazing health benefits. This is one of my favorite mushroom recipes.
I don’t like that you don’t use all of the mushrooms and a whole pepper but those can be frozen and used later.
