Smoked Cheddar and Blue Cheese Brisket Macaroni and Cheese

Smoked Cheddar and Blue Cheese Brisket Macaroni and Cheese

Last year, a restaurant dedicated solely to macaroni and cheese opened nearby. Shawn and I had heard about it months in advance and were so excited to try it. Once it opened, we were almost instantly there with the kids. The premise is genius — take a classic comfort food and make it a bunch […]

If I had to choose just two things to make in the slow cooker ever, it would be brisket and pulled pork. I’m a huge fan of these BBQ favorites and though I don’t have a smoker at home to make authentic versions, slow cooker variations are pretty good themselves. Especially now that I have […]

My husband says that there are things I don’t do simply because I refuse to — not because I can’t but because I won’t. Grilling used to fall high on that list. For a long while, I hid behind not knowing how to (read: not wanting to know how to) light the thing up. Not […]

For more than a year, I have barely eaten beef. While I like it, my body isn’t fond of it and I’ve found that avoiding it means that I can live with less bouts of my severe asthma – and less medication. It was a no brainer to eat less of it. That said, I […]

Family Meals: Poor Man’s Steak, Veggie and Mozzarella Sandwiches

  Do you eat your meals together as a family? The kids and I eat dinner together nearly every evening, usually around our kitchen table. Shawn’s not home for dinner often because he has to work late and has a lengthy commute, but when he is, we all eat together as well. I’m dying to […]

Homemade Corned Beef Hash (And Eating on St. Patrick’s Day)

St. Patrick’s Day is next week, so it’s almost time to break out the Harp beer and slice the corned beef. Not kidding. When Foodily asked me what we’ll be eating on St. Patrick’s Day, I giggled. As much as I am a firm believer in authentic foods, I am also a full-fledged, card-carrying, head-over-heels […]

When Will came home from school today, my house smelled incredible. The the lingering scent of slow-cooking beef mixed with red wine, garlic and more was mouthwatering and hit me as soon as we stepped through the door. I couldn’t wait until dinnertime. The stew, which the kids both ate a lot of, was hearty […]

Looking at this photo makes me wish I was making these again tonight. YUM. A bee has been trapped between one of my kitchen windows and the screen since early this morning when Paige and Will spotted it. We have no idea how it got into the house, and I have no clue what to […]

When I talked about cooking from magazines last week, I mentioned this recipe from Cooking Light. We liked it so much that I planned to make it again this week — totally a sign of a good recipe. (I didn’t make the suggested sides this time though … I was the only one who enjoyed […]

A few months back, Shawn looked at the ingredients in the Taco Kit that we always bought and found a few that we try not to eat. Scary. Who knew that such unnatural things could make their way into spice packets and crispy shells? Since then, we have switched to more natural, organic shells. But […]
