Wedge Salad

Wedge Salad Wedge Salads have always been a favorite of mine to order at restaraunts. After ordering them weekend after weekend on date night I decided one night to whip up my own. I did not realize how simple and potentially cheap and fast wedge salads were to make! They are a type of salad that can be customized very easily and made within minutes. Wedge Salads are really a personal preference (mine and my husbands are completely different) But here is what my husband and I put on our wedge salads   Wedge Salad Head of Iceberg Lettuce toppings: tomatoes, …

Yummy, but Easy Potato Salad

I spend a lot of time cooking with my mom. She owns a catering company and also does gift baskets and different treats for professional offices around Arizona. I am her right hand person and I love it. One of the benefits to working along side my mom is that I get to spend a lot of time with her and her friends and neighbors that stop by through out the day! A few years back she had a neighbor named Kjersten that I absolutely love. She would come over and hang out with us while her kids were at …

Cuban Black Beans

My oldest son, who is now 6, has always loved black beans ever since he was a baby! He will not eat pinto or pork in beans. He just loves black beans.

You can spice these up by adding more cayenne pepper or if you need them family friendly try just a pinch of cayenne pepper to give them flavor! Cuban Black …

Coconut Rice

After I did my meal planning for the week I went to the grocery store. It was then when I realized that I had 3 recipes with coconut in them on the list. I must have been on some coconut kick when I sat down to meal plan. But since both the husband and I are coconut fans I don’t think he minded it either! We don’t have rice very much in our house. We are more of a pasta family. So I rarely venture out and try new rice recipes. I made this and served it up the cuban …

Mom’s Knotted Rolls

My mom taught me to love cooking from a young age. I remember always having hot meals on the table almost every night! I remember her spending countless hours in the kitchen and slowly teaching all 4 of us girls how to cook. Not until after I was married did I realize the joys of cooking. Not everyone experiences those joys of cooking. But luckily I am one of them! Every Sunday my mom has all of us over to a nice Sunday dinner. And let me tell you these meals are gourmet! I look forward to them every week! These …
