• The Perfect Stuffing Recipe

    1 year ago

    I made this Perfect Stuffing Recipe using Johnsonville® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #SausageFamily.

    Johnsonville® Italian sausage is one of my favorites. I use it to prepare the Zuppa Toscana soup; we make it at least once a month. Using this Italian sausage to prepare the Stuffing Recipe for thanksgiving, was a no-brainier. I used to find stuffing very boring, but...

  • Simple Baked Duck Recipe

    We love Simple Baked Duck, this is why I am sharing a third duck recipe here on the blog. Yeah, what blogger has three duck recipes? Discover how great it is and love it with me. :)

    This is a very basic recipe I use, the duck comes out perfectly flavored and looks fancy. It does taste more flavorful if you do let it marinade overnight.

    I've found ducks sold at Cash & Carry,...

  • Stewed Buckwheat and Beef

    1 year ago

    Oh my, there is new found love for buckwheat at our house. We don't eat enough grains, so I have been experimenting with more recipes. I want the family to start eating grains that benefit. Beef and mushrooms spiked up the flavors, making the perfect addition to this recipe.

    What I love about this recipe is that it is pretty much all done in one pot. You combine it all together and...

  • Creamy Shrimp Scampi

    1 year ago

    I wasn't used to be much into shrimp or seafood for that matter. However, I got married to a seafood fan, and within years started appreciating seafood a lot more. And now, we have another fan of shrimp in our home, our 7 year old Jacob. He can eat a whole pack of them all on his own. I love watching him enjoy it with such an appetite, I don't know if I am the only one that just loves when...

  • Quick Mac and Cheese

    2 years ago

    Creamy Mac and Cheese is all that a kid can desire. I don't mind the pre-boxed mac and cheese once in a while, but the flavors are really not that great. A few months into our marriage, I started craving the homemade version of mac a cheese and my coworker shared her mom's recipe. It turned out to be just the way I imagined and it became our home staple. I don't make it often, but when I do,...

  • Creamy Mushroom Tortellini

    2 years ago

    Tortellini are great on their own, but in this creamy mushrooms sauce, they are completely on another level. Your plate will look and taste like a fancy restaurant dish.

    With the summer months being hot, this dish will not hold you to the kitchen for hours. My kitchen has a sunroof and it gets beyond hot in there, so I try to stay out of it during the summer.

    My favorite...
