Caramel Cream Cheese Apple Dip

Image

A few months ago my family attended a potluck gathering, and, while we were there, my husband stumbled upon a delicious apple dip made with caramel and cream cheese.  Now, my husband is not normally one for desserts, but this was different.  He couldn't stop eating it.  Or talking about it.  He begged me to find out how [...]

Easy Freezer Bacon & Blue Cheese Burgers

Image

Burgers are one of our spring and summertime staples, but I have to admit that we usually opt for the pre-made burgers rather than take the time to make our own.  Yes, I know they are more expensive, but in this case, convenience almost always wins out over cost. Not anymore! Not only are these flavor-packed [...]

How to Create a Gallery Wall

Image

Several years ago I wrote this post about the big giant (12’ wide by 16’ tall in the center—in other words, HUGE) wall, the focal point of our great room.  For nearly eleven years now, this space has overwhelmed me with its sheer big-ness.  And so, for most of the time we’ve lived here, I have [...]

Cheesy Potato Casserole

 Sometimes you just want comfort food. Cheese, potatoes, butter, sour cream....all baked together in one perfect dish.  Sure, it's not exactly health food, but it's not intended to be.  It's the dish you bring to potlucks and sick friends, the one you serve at home to take the edge of an otherwise bad day. The [...]

Creamy Mushroom Pork Chops

Ready for another easy-to-make, crockpot friendly freezer recipe? Pork chops in the crockpot can be slightly more challenging than chicken or beef, simply because it is easier to overcook them, which can make them dry and tough.  This delicious creamy mushroom sauce adds lots of flavor and moisture, but it is also important to cook them just enough.
