Green Chile Chicken Taco Casserole

I did it again – posted what we were having for supper last night on a Facebook Thread and half a dozen people asked for the recipe. This was basically a dump-what-you-have-in-the-pan kind of thing. I am in need of a grocery story trip, but have been putting it off, because I need to go […]

Slow Cooker Stew

We have FINALLY been experiencing some wet weather here in California.  And with rainy days, comes my craving for stew….along with a fire in the wood stove and a glass {or two} of a full bodied Zin.  We have quite a few roasts in our freez…

Potato pancakes

I love potatoes. In fact if you don’t like potatoes I’m pretty sure we can’t be friends.

There were plenty of request for the recipe in my Facebook page so I thought I would share it here for easier pinning and bookmarking! 2 bottles of white wine 2 cups […]

Pumpkin Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies

For a few years now I’ve wanted to make a cookie like this, but haven’t ever done it. This year I decided there were no excuses. I borrowed this one from this blog and made a few changes. Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt […]

Steak Salad with Goat Cheese and Coconut Rum

I’m not a big rum drinker. It’s generally too sweet for my tastes. However, I do love to use it when I cook – as a deglazing agent. It sounds so formal to call it an “agent”! One of my standby suppers is beef salad. I don’t, as a rule, lack for beef around here, […]
