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.
  • Sweet and salty - oh, what a delicious pair
    If you want to tantalize your taste buds, pair up something sweet and salty for a delightful dessert. Chewy caramel and crunchy pretzels are a unique, mouthwatering combination.

    Those with a sweet tooth understand the need for treats, and if you add just a touch of salt, your sweets will be even sweeter. 
  • Casseroles: Brimming with comfort, easy to prepare
    What says comfort food like a casserole? There's nothing homier than sitting down for dinner and sharing a hot dish with your family. 
  • History a mystery, but savor the barbecue sauce
    The exact origin of barbecue sauce is unknown. However, historians have a few leads. Prehistoric chefs found they could add flavor to meat and help preserve it by basting it with wine and vinegar seasoned with salt and seeds. 
  • Roll-ups: A delicious break from traditional lasagna
    Take a break from traditional lasagna and try lasagna roll-ups instead. They are fun to make, simple to prepare and you won't be stuck with a whole pan of lasagna. 
  • Give spaghetti sauce a delicious twist
    The key to great spaghetti is a delicious sauce that's been allowed to simmer for hours as layers of flavor meld together. 
  • Red, white and blue - and barbecue
    Fireworks and food are the best parts of the Fourth of July. If you're planning a backyard dig out the red and white checkered tablecloth and prepare a patriotic feast bursting with pride. To celebrate America's birthday, be sure to add some red, white and blue to your menu too. 
  • Hurray for summer: Gak, slime, pizza, kabobs
    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. 
  • For the new school year, meals that get top marks
    If you've been out buying school supplies, school clothes, shoes and backpacks, you are getting ready to begin a new school year. The much anticipated school year brings much excitement for children, but a new level of stress for parents. 
  • Secret ingredients add surprise to your foods
    Everyone loves the element of surprise, and what better way to surprise your family than with food? If you don't try something new now and then, your family would be stuck eating the same boring food time and time again. 
  • Homemade marinades add tasty, tenderizing touch
    A good homemade marinade not only adds flavor to your meat, but it's also healthful. Ditch the bottled stuff and make your own at home. Marinades are simple to prepare, and they will keep your meat moist and tender as you bake, roast or grill. 
  • Get creative with burger recipes
    Burgers taste great any day of the year, but they taste even better in the summer when they're grilled in your own backyard and eaten outside. 
  • Make summer sweet, juicy, healthful
    The hot temperatures are here to stay. The beginning of summer isn't officially until June 21, but my family has already been enjoying outdoor festivals and swimming in the outdoor pool at our fitness center. 
  • Cooking for a crowd: Delores Schaeuble shares the recipe
    The hustle and bustle of a busy household was the norm for the Schaeuble family of Carroll. In the late 1960s they built a house on North Main Street. The doors on their home swung open and closed on a regular basis, as two parents and 10 children went on their way to school, work, errands and activities. 
  • It's easy to add pizazz to pork chops
    Instead of grabbing a package of ground beef or chicken breasts for dinner, reach for pork instead. Pork chops are an effortless way to add pizazz to dinner time. Take the time to add a little flavor to pork, and it will go a long way. 
  • Dessert bars: Sweet and easy-to-make
    Everyone has a weakness, and one of mine is dessert bars, specifically the corner piece. I love bars because of their simplicity. A pan of bars is much faster and easier to make than batches of cookies. Bars are also easy to slice up and store, and bars are ideal for transporting to potlucks and picnics. Once you're at your destination, just grab and go, no forks needed.
