Baked Potato Soup

     Well, 2013 is in the records and 2014 is well underway. Sorry for our lack of activity lately. If you’ve been paying attention, it’s been about a month since we’ve done a post. I’m sure you’ll forgive me. Holidays can be quite a busy time and we spent quite a bit of it out… Continue reading Baked Potato Soup

The Only Stew I’ve Ever Liked

Beef Stew with Sherry and Mushrooms      For those of you outside of the DFW area, if you saw the news, you saw that we got hit pretty bad this past weekend. Not as bad as some areas of the country that get it every year on a weekly basis, like Colorado or Wyoming or… Continue reading The Only Stew I’ve Ever Liked

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

     It’s not very often I stumble on a recipe (actually Mrs. G stumbled on this one), try it out and immediately think to myself, “I’ve got to share this one with my readers.” See, the thing is we are not real good at following recipes.

Even  better, they are a great way to get rid of use leftovers. Like that Smoked Spiral Sliced Ham we cooked… Continue reading Smoked Ham and Cheddar Soup

Taco Soup

     Soups. Not something we’ve tackled a lot of here on this blog. In fact, this is only the second one we’ve done. Not really sure why that is. Soups are generally easy, cheap and comforting. So maybe we’ll try and do some more this year as we move from summer into fall and then… Continue reading Taco Soup

BLTs on Home-made Bread

 Sometimes simple is better, and sometimes its nice to have a classic. It is classic after all. And what’s more classic than a BLT? To make it a little more “special” though, a little more “fancy“, I decided to make up some fresh home-made bread for these BLTs. I love the way the aroma of… Continue reading BLTs on Home-made Bread
