cooking

The first time I ever made meatballs, no one could eat them. I am not joking. Those things were hard as a rock and dry as a bone. I finally gave them to our big dog who wound up burying them and never eating them. Since then, I have been on the hunt for the perfect meatball recipe. I finally found it after some trial and error. Here is how you can make the best homemade meatballs on the planet.

Last week Kayla and I decided that we would try our hand at making homemade mozzarella cheese. We had heard how easy it was to make, and we both love fresh mozzarella, so we decided to give it a try!

I have been baking like a mad woman today — 3 pies (one of which I am sharing with you today — Chocolate Pecan Pie), sweet potatoes, one of my two turkeys, eggs for all kinds of things, cornbread for dressing — and the list just keeps going! AHHH! :)

My sanity will return sometime this weekend!

Kayla is really into baking now. She and a friend made these Chocolate Kiss Cookies during Christmas (that is why they are red and green). However, you can put whatever color sprinkles you want on them–red and blue for the 4th of July, pink and yellow for Easter, orange and black for Halloween–the possibilities are ENDLESS!

It’s fall, and that usually means pumpkin time in our home! We spend the first part of fall visiting the pumpkin patch to get tons of pumpkins, and then Kayla and I set out to create delicious pumpkin recipes from the puree and seeds we get!

I have been trying to fix homemade mexican rice like you get in a Mexican restaurant FOREVER — and I finally found the right recipe for it. Marcela from Mexican Made Easy really opened my eyes on how to make your rice fluffy and get it to taste like the delicious rice at my favorite Mexican restaurant.

My daughter is quickly becoming a rockstar in the kitchen. I had NO IDEA that she would love baking and cooking as much as she did. The other night she had a taste for chocolate, caramel, nuts, and deliciousness. She found this recipe in one of my old cookbooks so we got to work — in meaning I watched and supervised as my 14 year old created this scrumptious recipe for Chocolate Caramel Brownies.

I loving creating homemade Chinese takeout from home. It is so much cheaper and the taste is something you just wouldn’t believe. Before now, anytime I made Sweet N Sour Chicken, I always bought my sauce from the store because I thought it was hard to make. The other night, I made a sauce for my chicken that is TO DIE FOR. If you make this delicious Homemade Sweet N Sour Sauce, you will never go back to store bought again.

Cooking with children is a wonderful way for adults to spend quality time with a child while also teaching them an important skill that they will use for the rest of their life. Additionally, children are naturally drawn to cooking activities as they tend to appeal to their creativity and active personalities.
