Rhubarb Sweet Potato Salad: Summer Supper Ideas

featured potato salad

This is a recipe that I created kinda by accident. I have a suspicion that most recipes that call for celery could actually use rhubarb, instead, since they’re both stringy, fibrous, and have a ‘tang’ to the taste, so I’ve been experimenting with that. My husband doesn’t like potato salad very much, so I thought if I threw some sweet potatoes ... Read More »

I think that I’ve mentioned that I LOVE eating breakfast for dinner. And for breakfast. And lunch. Maybe even for snacks, too. Screw it.

I wanted ... Read More »

Spicy Sausage & Pepper Penne Skillet


This was a meal that I distinctly remember eating (& liking! rare, because I didn’t like pasta when I was growing up) when I was living at home. I didn’t think of it for years until a friend on Facebook said one time, “I need help! I need a recipe for dinner that involves spicy sausage & pasta!” And boom. ... Read More »

Tortilla Pinwheel Christmas Tree


I’ve always loved tortilla and cream cheese pinwheels.  I’ve seen the Christmas tree layout a few times on Pinterest, so I thought I’d give it a try for our New Years’ celebration with the kids.   I just made a basic mixture of 1 package cream cheese, 1/4 c. cranberries, 2 Tbsp. walnuts and about 1/3 c. shredded cheese.  I ...

Ingredients:6 Tbsp. cocoa1 c. sugar1/2 c. flour1/8 tsp. salt1/3 c. melted butter1 egg1 tsp. vanilla 1. Preheat oven to ... Read More »
