When I need a meal in minutes, I often make 30 Minute Fajitas. They are fast, filling and very tasty. When I have fresh, homemade salsa and guacamole on hand, which makes a tasty snack served with tortilla chips, I like to serve it over fajitas.
Many people love the taste of freshly baked bread but are unwilling to devote the time to create it. Now, many have a bread machine to give a lending hand. I make French bread in my bread machine that is like none other I have ever tasted.
Bringing a brown-bag lunch to work can get very boring. It's always fun when I have something different packed in my lunch instead of the same old foods. Pocket sandwiches are a treat when you have access to a microwave.
Valentine's Day is a unique holiday set aside as a romantic day to share with someone special. Unlike Christmas, when we celebrate with family and friends, Valentine's Day is meant exclusively for your someone special.
I love Christmas and the whole reason we celebrate the holiday. Sometimes I think we allow Christmas to take on a purpose beyond the actual meaning. To me, Christmas is a time of family and goodwill.
It's that time of the year when flu bugs and colds are in the air. And, unfortunately, Gary and I had symptoms of one kind or another over the weekend. A bowl of hot soup is a perfect soothing meal when you're under the weather.

I have a tendency to over buy items that need to be frozen, causing my freezer to get too full and I forget what I have, which results in wasting food and money.
Rest-A-Lot Stew, doesn't that sound like the perfect dish to serve on a cold wintry day? It's one of those meals you can throw together in the morning and let it slowly cook all day while you're curled up reading a good book or watching a good movie.
With Super Bowl Sunday coming up, many football fans are planning Super Bowl parties with lots of good food.
