Tips for a Tip….Sirloin Tip that is….

When I was grocery shopping over the weekend I found the price of cheap ground beef per pound to be only $.10 cheaper than a sirloin tip roast per pound. I decided not to settle for the cheaper meat, most likely with additives, and get the roast. We don’t eat very much red meat here … Continue reading

Garden Update-Four weeks later

I can’t believe how much my garden has grown in just four weeks! I have already been using some of the lettuce, spinach and herbs for salads and recipes in my kitchen. I’ve learned how to care for all of the plants I have so I am expecting great results. I put some plant food … Continue reading

My 2012 Garden

My 2012 Garden

I finally went out and bought seeds and plants. Monday I was able to get most everything in before a nice rain fell saving me from having to water. And it’s been raining a bit daily so I haven’t had to worry about that part of gardening, so far. Here is what I put in: … Continue reading

Spaghetti Bruschetta

It’s hot and we’ve had a busy day. I needed a quick and cool dinner idea. I took the kids bowling using free coupons from AMF lanes. Kids can bowl free all summer long when you sign them up for the coupons, not too bad of a deal. With the heat and being tired,  I … Continue reading

Classic Italian Roasted Chicken

I think all cooks should know how to roast a whole chicken. It’s so incredibly easy and much tastier than those little rotisserie chickens you can pick up at the local big box grocery store. Whole roasting chickens usually go on sale for a price that is comparable to the pre-made version but you get … Continue reading

Rosemary and Garlic Chicken

I adapted this recipe from Real Simple’s recipe of the day from Jan. 11, 2011. I made a few minor changes but otherwise kept to the instructions. We loved this!  I decided after reading the amount of vinegar (1/2 cup) that went into the recipe we might be turned off by the flavor and ended … Continue reading

Herbs and plants

Don’t be shocked because I have blogged several times this week but I guess the mood hit me to blog. I have been lamenting over the pitiful state of my one surviving basil plant from the summer that I decided it was time to buy a new plant. Look at this awful sorry state of what … Continue reading
