Crockpot Venison BBQ Bourbon Meatballs

Last year we were without power for New Year’s Eve, so we made up for the amount of food made this year.  These venison bourbon meatballs are from a couple different recipes, but the ingredients I used are found in the link at the end.  The one I found the time to cook these in…

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bars

Original recipe is at the bottom… wasn’t really a Pinterest fail, but lessons learned are below. 🙂 I used a large cookie sheet that is about 16″ x 17″ to make these. For the tin foil, I’d suggest using the size that is much wider than 12 inches. If I made these again, I would…

Crockpot Chili

Chili is one of those dinners that are nice to have on a chilly day. It is not cold here today, but I wanted to share this for when that cold weather does hit us again. The original recipe is found at the very bottom. This one you can easily put in the crockpot to…

Beef and Broccoli with Rice

If you are a fan of beef and broccoli with rice, this is a great one to have. With the exception of hamburger, I marinade pretty much any meat that is cooked. The longer it’s marinating, the better, in my opinion. Marinades that I make include a beer or whiskey that isn’t the best, red…

Mushrooms stuffed with cheese & pasta sauce

Recipe straight and to the point… I had a vision of what I wanted to do with the mushrooms and put this together. Ingredients: Mushrooms Cheese (any kind) Pasta Sauce (I used a full regular sized jar) Spinach or Kale (full frozen bag is what I used, after it thawed) Anything else that you want…

Deviled Eggs

Easy deviled egg recipe – no vinegar needed! Ingredients: 9 hard boiled eggs (add water to a pot and put on stove; turn on high heat and as soon as they start boiling, turn off burner and move pot, with a lid over it for 15-20 minutes, then put in ice water).  I used 9…

Wheat Pita Pizza

Make these ahead of time for a quick pizza fix (and to save time), or make just one and skip the freezing part. Ingredients: Wheat Pita Bread Pasta sauce (you pick!) Cheese Any toppings you’d like (pepperoni, banana pepper rings, onions, etc.) Instructions: Take a cookie sheet and line with wax or parchment paper.  Place…

Ingredients: 2 packages crescent rolls For Filling: 2 – 8 ounce packages of cream cheese (softened!) 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla For Topping: 3/4 stick butter (melted) 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/4 cup sugar Instructions:…

Egg Muffins

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be starting a new workout program, so what better thing to do on a cold, very windy, snowy day here in the UP of Michigan than look for those healthy recipes?  The title of this recipe is Healthy Egg Muffin Cups and here is the link – https://showmetheyummy.com/healthy-egg-muffin-cups/ I did modify this recipe…

“UP” Sushi!

For those of you that are not sushi fans, this is a post worth reading because I used to be one of those that refused to eat it.  It seemed as if every one of my friends loved sushi so I became a rebel and would say ‘no’ every time since I thought it was…

Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

It’s definitely been a transition to the U.P.  Tonight I ended up cooking jambalaya and Baked Parmesan Tomatoes with leftover asparagus.  That side is definitely better with a main fish dish like salmon, but I’ve been wanting to try these tomatoes for about a week. When making recipes, it is very hard for me to…
