Homemade Granola

IMG_2243

I love granola. Just love it. I’d been seeing on many blogs about how to make it and I felt like it was troublesome – and also figured that it would take a long time to make it taste good. However, my husband demolished half the batch, and he doesn’t even *like* granola. He kept …

My Favorite Frugal Cookies: Oatmeal (Chocolate Chip)

Growing up, if we had cookies, 90% of the time if I didn’t scrape something out of an interesting cookbook and make them myself, they were usually this cookie. Occasionally we had other cookies; I can vaguely remember tries at molasses cookies and gingersnaps. The more I bake, though, the more I realize that these …

IMG_1608

I keep forgetting about this, but I had a head of cabbage, and not wanting it to go bad (I am doing my best to stop the food waste from spoilage), I decided to make a stir fry. We both needed some protein so we added chicken. I used chicken breast which I cut off …

Spiced Spinach Chicken with Almonds (Dairy Free)

IMG_0925

I loved this meal. It was inspired by a few different sources, when I got desperate to use up my fresh spinach, which I purchased before going dairy free and wanted to initially use for spinach alfredo sauce. Ingredients: 1 lb skinless, bone in chicken thighs (this makes a lot of sauce if you use …

Pineapple Cake

IMG_0513

This is so classic, but sometimes you just really need a super sweet, super quick dessert… I’ve had all sorts of variations of dump cake, and I try to stay away from the processed stuff. I didn’t have any nuts, and I never have pie filling on hand, so I took a can of pineapple …

Applesauce

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to post – life got pretty crazy around here after I started working, and got the babies on the way. Every year that I can remember, in October we have gone to the Apple Harvest Festival and spent the weekend at Graves’ Mountain in Syria, …

Tortilla Pizzas

IMG_0581

This post written in advance of a internet-free week. — Coming home from church on Sunday and looking toward lunch, everything I was thinking about kept coming back to pizza, which was disappointing because we were way too hungry to wait 2 hours for pizza dough + baking. So, the suggestion was “Why can’t we …

IMG_0604

Today’s dinner was inspired by the fact that we are doing a week-long disconnect in Gatlinburg, and I had things in the fridge that were going to spoil. I would definitely repeat this recipe though… I will admit, I really licked my plate!! Print Spinach and Mushroom Crock Pot Chicken Author: Alice Brosey Recipe type: Entree Prep …

Flautas: Episode 2

IMG_0600

Yesterday, I experimented with myFlautas recipe and came up with an equally good, but different taste. First of all, I added some mushrooms (about 1/3 cup, chopped) to the mixture when sauteeing the onions. Then, instead of using all regular salsa, I used half regular salsa and half salsa verde. I still think I need …
