Spiced Wine Jelly

I know, I know ... who has leftover wine sitting around? Well, I did. I needed to open a bottle of wine for a dessert I was making, but it was about 10 in the morning ... not time to have wine, for me anyways!  So, the rest of the bottle just sat there all day and by the time dinner rolled around, I completely forgot that I had opened it. I'm not a huge fan of leftover wine. Even when stored properly, I just can't seem to enjoy it. It always seems to have a sour taste to it. ...more
It looks quite appetizing I m going to try this weekend.more

Sloppy Joes- Bagel Style

Sloppy Joes-Bagel StyleI must give credit to my beautiful mama. She always has the best dinner ideas when I fail to let my mind come up with...well anything. I have many days where coming up with a dinner "idea" is challenging for me. Those are also the days I love to sleep in, lay in pj's all day and watch romantic movies and not clean an item in my house. :)Anyway, my mom brought this idea to the table and we devoured it. It was so delicious and a quick last minute option....more

Sage Pesto

Sage is an herb that I love but I don't have many uses for until Thanksgiving rolls around. Besides making sage smudge stick ... how much sage can one really consume? This year, my sage is absolutely crazy! I planted regular sage this year, usually I do purple or golden sage and the plants grow well but not as huge as this year. I don't know if it was the weather conditions or if it's just this type of sage that loves my garden. Regardless, I'm not complaining. ...more

Oven Baked BBQ Chicken

The second I saw this recipe by the Pioneer Woman, I knew I needed to make oven baked BBQ chicken. It's funny that we've been to about a dozen barbecues this summer, but we haven't had anything that is actually covered in delicious sweet tangy sticky finger-licking-good BBQ sauce in ages. It was time to change that....more
