White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese

White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese has always been one of my favorite foods. And now that I have kids, I often get requests to make it. No one complains when I make the boxed version, but it really doesn’t take much more effort to make from scratch. […]

Clam Chowder

Clam Chowder

Clam chowder is serious business around here. I’ve been instructed to always make way more than necessary so there’s enough for seconds. And leftovers. It really is that good. I love that I can make a whole pot for about the same price as one […]

Spinach Salad with Marinated Onions

Pork Egg Rolls

My daughter suggested making egg rolls for dinner one night since she found a recipe for them in her kids cookbook. I love that she’s reading a cookbook. And of course, I’m the one that got it for her. 🙂 As my big girls have […]
