Carsten and Kellan have fun in the kitchen making their very own slime.
Summer has arrived, and that means kids need things to do. My boys are thoroughly enjoying summertime, and so am I. I don't miss the hurried schedule of the school year and my hectic commute. Instead we are able to relax and make our own schedule each day.
  • Make a cool holiday treat: Melting snowman cookies

    The weather outside is frightful, but holiday baking is delightful. There are exactly two weeks until Christmas Day. It’s not too early to begin baking cookies. You can freeze them or give some to friends and neighbors.

  • For Butterfinger lovers, a luscious dessert

    If you have someone in your life that loves Butterfinger candy bars, whip up this dessert for them. They will love you to pieces.

    Take a break from the chaos this holiday season and make things easy on yourself by cooking simple, hearty dishes that will satisfy a hungry crowd.

  • First, remember to give thanks

    Last week at my school we had our annual Thanksgiving feast. Staff members signed up to bring food to share at lunchtime. As a member of the social committee I distributed papers asking staff to complete this sentence, “I am thankful for ...” Most staff gave thanks for family and friends. Others were thankful for their colleagues.

  • Treats add sweet addition to your Thanksgiving feast

    Have you started to daydream about sitting down with family to enjoy a golden turkey and all the trimmings? There’s only 10 days to wait until Thanksgiving Day.

  • Easy recipes for beefing up your menu

    Beef is what’s for dinner with easy and inexpensive ways to prepare it. There’s plenty of ways to cook up ground beef and for me, the easier the better. Take the time to brown a few or several pounds of ground beef at once, depending on the size of your family, and the options are endless.

  • Treat yourself to spooky-good Halloween dip and dessert

    Halloween is upon us. It’s time to serve up some spooky, fall-inspired fun.

  • Once in a while you feel like you’re stuck in a recipe rut. You don’t know what to cook because you’re tired of the same old thing, but you don’t have enough time or energy to try something new. The next time you’re at the store, grab the ingredients for an easy casserole that’s not only tasty, it’s nice enough to serve to company.

  • Make Pork Month a savory celebration
    Traditionally October was known as Pork Month because it was the time of year when hogs were brought to market. Today, October Pork Month serves as a time to thank pig farmers and for farmers to connect with consumers.
  • Savor sweet fall favorite: Caramel apple cookies
    Oh, how I love fall. I love the weather, the changing colors, the seasonal foods, and most of all going to fall festivals and pumpkin patches in the area with my family. In the fall it seems there so much to do and so little time before the cold weather sets in and gorgeous fall days are gone.
  • Jalapeno poppers pack an irresistible combination
    Jalapeno poppers will have your next party guests going wild for the irresistible combination of jalapenos, bacon and cream cheese all wrapped up into one bite. If the thought of spicy jalapenos scares you, be sure to scrape out all the seeds and look for peppers with a round end. Pointed peppers tend to contain more heat.
  • Chips and dip a tailgate winner
    Whether you choose to tailgate in a parking lot or camp out in your living room, chips and dip are the perfect for game-day snacking.
  • Pumpkin spice makes everything nice
    Pumpkin Spice Latte Season is in full swing. Baristas across the country are ready and armed with the fall favorite flavored by pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
  • Red wine sauce gives beef roast a special Italian flair
    Pot roast is one of the easiest and most popular dishes to serve. It’s so easy you don’t need to save it for Sunday dinner. Make your next roast extra special by adding an Italian flair.
  • Go bold with pesto recipes
    Jarred pesto is a quick and easy way to turn boring into bold. When you are short of time turn to pesto to get the job done, but be sure to stir the pesto first, as it settles over time.
