Fall is here and Halloween has passed. That means only one thing. Thanksgiving is on its way. I look forward to my cousin’s smoked turkey and the family’s cranberry relish and of course pumpkin pie. More importantly is family. Every year our family gathers together and celebrates together – stuffing ourselves with great food and good laughter. Each year I… Continue reading
Sometimes you just need something fast and yummy to serve. What’s nice about most of the meals presented in the Better Homes and Gardens Dinner on a Dollar magazine is that they are fast and easy prep. Even better is always the price.

One section in particular is their transformation of the ever staple, always present in a dorm room, Top Ramen Noodle package. One that caught my eye in particular was the Asian Egg-Noodle Frittata. I happen to love… Continue reading
Its no secret to anyone that knows me this is my favorite time of year. September first hits and my heart starts to sing. Growing up in North Carolina I loved seeing the leaves change – all the fiery colors that made the trees look ablaze. I adored the crisp morning air and the warm afternoons.

My stepson has an ongoing mantra these days. “I just want to get out of school.” I am more than certain he is not the only senior with senioritis setting in. Its kind of funny that he is so focused on getting out of school and at the same time working on getting into four more years of school. … Continue reading
The other day I needed a fresh and yummy lunch. And cheap would be nice. So I reached for the Better Homes and Garden Dinner on a Dollar magazine. Not dinner but definitely on a dollar.
