I have always loved cobblers. Fruit mixed with a crunchy crumbly topping is just divine. The one thing that did bother me was how much sugar and butter was in a cobbler. I always felt like it was making my healthy train derail.
My brother loves lemon, always has. When we were growing up, he always wanted a lemon meringue pie for his birthday. He would always scoop the meringue off of the pie and devour the lemon custard. I haven’t ventured into making a lemon meringue pie, yet. However, I have attempted lemon bars with little success.
I know it may seem a little early for a St. Patty’s Day recipe, but it is just around the corner. It’s one of those holidays that I always wish I enjoyed a little more than I do. Last year was the first year that I’ve made corned beef and cabbage, ever. I plan on doing it again because I loved it and it was way easier than I’d anticipated to make.
I enjoy baking and will spend hours baking on my days off, but my good friend and coworker hates it. In fact, she doesn’t even keep flour in her house. The only way she will make a pie is to buy a frozen one from the store and reheat it. I on the other hand, will make both my filling and my crust from scratch.
It’s been a full year now that I’ve been on my kick to build a healthier life for me and my family. I didn’t make any drastic changes but slowly swapped some less healthy foods for healthier ones (most times unbeknownst to my family). I also made an effort to get outside every day and exercise a few times a week. I also swapped movies and TV time with my kids for walks in the woods and bike rides on our local bike path.
I was looking for something for dinner this weekend and ran across this recipe. I thought the recipe was a little plain the way it was, so I spiced it up a little bit. I was sure my boys would like it since it had tater tots, but was really surprised when my husband loved it.
This recipe is a little twist on the classic potato soup. My mom always cooked with kielbasa, whether it was in a nice cold pasta salad during the summer or in a hot stir fry, it was a staple in my house growing up. However, it hasn’t been something I’ve cooked with much since I’ve been married, mainly because my husband is a huge hunter and we mostly eat game meat. Every once in a while I like a change of pace and will buy kielbasa. It’s almost considered a treat in my house since we have it so rarely.
I’m not a big football fan. However, if I’m going to force myself to watch one football game a year, it’s going to be the Super Bowl. There are only two good things about the Super Bowl: Food and Commercials. If it wasn’t for those two things my life would be blissfully free of football.
I know it may seem a little early to be discussing Valentine’s Day but it’s coming, ready or not. I thought I would do a public service and help the gentlemen of Missoula out a little bit by letting them know what not to get their ladies. I figure if I can give you guys enough of a heads up, you will have enough time to find her something that she won’t be disappointed with.
Although I don’t look much like the moms in this commercial, I am scared that I’m going to turn into one of them soon. I have a 12-year old that is right on the verge of becoming a teenager and I’m absolutely terrified of what is to come. I think mainly because I know that means he is growing up and he won’t need me anymore.
Since we all live in Montana, most of us drive our own vehicles instead of using public transit. It could be because we live a good ways out of town, or because we don’t enjoy riding bikes in Montana’s long winter months. No matter what you drive, or the reason you drive it, vehicle ownership comes with getting yourself into some sticky situations.
