The Great American Cheeseburger…and a Giveaway to see Brad Paisley!

I love lots of things.  Food, of course. Family. Music.  Fun. Sometimes…these things all coincide, creating a cosmic happening that blows my mind. Like The Kraft Great American Cheeseburger and Brad Paisley. Brad Paisley. You may not know this, but I grew up in West Virginia.  So did Brad Paisley.  Sure, we were separated by […]

Mother’s Day Bouquet…of Cheese. Win it!


  Okay, maybe it’s because I am a foodie, but I don’t think that’s the entire reason I am so enamored with this concept…a Bouquet of Cheese.  Cracker Barrel Cheese, at that.  Have you had it?  It’s kind of a staple around here, and I know my Mother-in-Law buys the heck out of it – […]

Barbeque Pork & Macaroni Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


My husband has deemed this the PERFECT sandwich, the sandwich he could eat every day, from here on out. That, my friends, is saying a LOT.  This man does not enjoy eating the same food more than once in a row, so if he would eat this forever, well, it’s bound to be amazing.  And…it […]

Zesty Cheesy Chili Mac, a #NewTraDish


  Growing up, we had spaghetti a lot.  My mom worked fulltime, and as working moms know, the last thing you want to do when you get home is make anything other than an impression on the couch. So spaghetti is kind of a savior.  It’s a quick and easy dinner, and everyone likes it.  […]

Kentucky Derby Round Up…Everything You Need for the Perfect Derby Party!


Everything you need for the perfect Kentucky Derby Party this weekend, save for the fascinator or giant hat.  You’re on your own for that. Most of us won’t be making the trek to the Derby, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and party like the fine folks stomping around in the centerfield, cheering […]

Gruyere Philly Cheesesteak Mac & Cheese


I know, that’s a mouthful. Gruyere Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese. Three very good things are listed in that title:  Wisconsin Gruyere – about the best cheese on the planet if you ask me; Philly Cheesesteak – there’s a reason they are so well known; Mac and Cheese – the ultimate in comfort food.  The […]

Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole


I don’t do casseroles.  Have you noticed? Don’t ask me why…I do like to eat them. I just don’t MAKE them. Why? Beats me.  I’m a strange bird. For Christmas, Jon got a wild hair about him that he was going to make a turkey for lunch and a breakfast casserole for, um, breakfast.  So, […]

Parmesan, Onions and Mushroom Pasta with Peas and Truffle Oil


I’ve never met a pasta I didn’t like. You? Tomato sauce. Alfredo. Truffles. Pesto.  Cheese. Cream. Top a bowl of pasta with just about anything – I will eat it. Oh yes, I will eat it. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t love a GREAT pasta dish.  I had one of the best ever just […]

Pizza Popovers


I rarely surprise myself. But here’s the thing…when I do, I REALLY do.  For example, these Pizza Popovers.  They shocked the snot out of me.  What started as an experiment using what I could find in the fridge turned out to be something I will be making time after time.  They were ridiculous, in the […]
