Teriyaki Glazed Salmon

Terikyaki Glazed Salmon

As a child, fish was possibly one of the worst punishments my mom could dole out. Maybe it was because we didn't eat it very often so it was new and therefore GROSS! I know a few people who still feel that way (ahem, Jen Jen.) At some point in time, I realized that I like fish and now that I am a busy, forgetful mom, I love fish. It is quick to prepare and in my book that is a huge bonus! Besides being quick, fish is really good for you. And sometimes I try to remember to fix healthy foods for … [Read more...]

Super Bowl Worthy Buffalo Wings

Superbowl Worthy Buffalo Wings

I love the Super Bowl for one reason, okay maybe two. I mostly enjoy eating appetizers, bean dips, crackers and cheese, guacamole. It also gives me the perfect excuse to make Super Bowl Worthy Buffalo Wings. It is simply a match made in Heaven-hot wings and football. Don't get me wrong, I make them other times also, but I feel justified eating them during the Super Bowl. The Strongman (aka my husband) loves anything buffalo flavored. We go through a lot of Frank's Red Hot Sauce at our house. … [Read more...]

Chicken Pot Pie Crumble

Chicken Pot Pie Crumble

I have discovered that my daughter loves chicken pot pie. Who knew? I think it is pretty yummy too. She skips around the room when she finds out that is what is for dinner. I like it because I can make it earlier in the day, put it in the refrigerator and then my husband can throw it in the oven for the nights when I'm at work. I have a thing with pie crust, though. I just don't like it. Well, I like the top of a pie crust, but the bottom layers is always soggy. And that is gross! This recipe … [Read more...]

Banana Bread

Banana Bread

Do you have some of those yucky brown bananas lying around. So do I ... or so DID I. Once they start to turn a little brown and spotty the kids won't touch them and I actually just keep them around until they turn really brown and gross looking. It is only when they are brown and gross that their potential to make really fantastic banana bread is unlocked. I like  a little chew to my banana bread. So many recipes are like  heavy and sometimes greasy cake and some people prefer that, but I like … [Read more...]

Inspired Gerbera Daisy


While at work last week, one of my patients had a beautiful vase of flowers. I see lots of flowers and always comment on how nice they are. But on this night,  I was so impressed by a particular flower, the yellow and orange Gerbera Daisy.    I asked if I could take a picture because I knew that it MUST BECOME A COOKIE!  Pardon the iPhone photo in a hospital room, at 10:00 pm, in the middle of winter! :)  How do you think I did? I gotta say, I'm pretty impressed with myself sometimes. … [Read more...]
