Sausage egg & cheese biscuit

Today I updated our biscuit recipe to remove the goat yogurt since we recently learned that Shelton can no longer have table sugar and lactose. Previously we were told no cow dairy and now it seems no goat or sheep dairy either. This morning we had chicken sausage, egg & cheese biscuit! It was a…

Mexican Chicken Soup with Black beans & Rice

When a cold snap reminds you that it’s not quite Spring it’s time for a pot of soup. After being at a swim meet I really didn’t think ahead much for dinner. I grabbed a whole chicken from the frig, veggies in the crisper, beans and tomatoes from the pantry. We were so hungry it…

Cafe and {Canned} Chili

We play Cafe almost every night lately. Shelton loves to rearrange the playroom and set the tables for a cafe. She delights in picking out plates, napkins, and making it beautiful. She usually writes the menus and serves the meals. While this is fun we are teaching her manners, how to pay the bill, and…

Super Simple Allergy Friendly Potato Soup

Church, Sunday naps, Mary Poppins, and yummy soup refreshed us this February day. I love potato soup and growing up loved Huey’s potato soup until we realized I couldn’t eat it due to the return of my infant allergies. I learned to replicate the thick creamy soup by puréeing half of the potatoes broth mixture…

Cowboy Beans

When I’m asked to bring baked beans I show up with my version of “cowboy beans” my mom made in a bean cooker growing up. They were delicious and filling with the ground beef. A meal in themselves. She cooked them in a brown McCoy bean pottery pot. The funny part….my mother did not and…

Christmas Eve Brunch

For us Christmas is not what is under the tree but more importantly what is on the plate and who is around our table. We love sharing time, food, and fellowship from Thanksgiving to New Year’s in our home. Don’t get me wrong we love to go out to as well but worrying about food…

Then add a pound of meat, frozen veggies (or canned), broth ( or water) and seasoning! This recipe is so forgiving and adaptable! I’d love to hear your favorite version! Tonight’s…

Chili Time

This morning was the first cool blast in the Delta this Fall. A cool 45 degrees sent me thinking of chili and muffins! So this afternoon I started making chili with what I had on hand. So this is what I came up with. Chipotle Sweet Potato Black bean Chili Serves 8-10 2 Tablespoons olive…

Meatball Pho

I was first introduced to Pho 🍲 on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. We loved watching on Sunday nights to see where Anthony would be and more importantly what he would be eating. On a particular episode Anthony was in Vietnam eating Pho. I was on a mission. I went to the Vietnamese grocery in Memphis,…

Sunday Night Supper

Sunday night is the time to enjoy dinner and catch our breath before the work/school week. I originally planned shrimp scampi for dinner but changed directions when I realized I was missing a few ingredients and clearly did not want to run to the store. This turned out to be the best dinner in-spite of…
