Swedish Meatball

This swedish meatball recipe is a favorite easy appetizer! Form into mini meatballs and serve on toothpicks smothered in a swedish meatball sauce recipe made from the pan drippings. Happy New Year! We had a wonderful party with friends for our New Years Eve party last night. We ate great food and played a very entertaining game of Bingo with prizes. The best prize of the night was a Star Wars calendar that both most boys and girls wanted! One of the appetizers was Swedish Meatballs. ...

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

My Grandma came into town this Christmas and make these Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts. I love spending time with my Grandma and my kids love playing with their Great Grandma as well. She is willing to try just about anything! My Dad got her out snow shoeing! How great is that! Grandma made these as part of a dinner one night instead of an appetizer, but either way it is an easy recipe with 3 ingredients; bacon, water chestnuts and honey BBQ sauce. A few years ago my Grandma made a cookbook ...

Ham and Cheese Potato Soup

When the weather changes and starts to become cold soup is always one of those comfort foods we enjoy. This easy recipe, Potato Soup, is also great to have the day after a big ham meal such as Thanksgiving or Christmas. The leftovers can be chopped and added in to create a delicious soup. My girls always ask for more ham!  Just a few tips: When I cook bacon I save the bacon grease to use for later. I always have a stash in my freezer! For this recipe I pull out some of that saved ...

Pork Carnitas

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. While this recipe was not designed for that purpose, because I forgot, it is good timing though that I finally found a recipe I love for pork carnitas! The best thing I love about this recipe is everything goes into the slow cooker at night and by morning it is done. I can shred the pork before the day really gets crazy. It makes dinner super fast which is necessary on some nights! A pork shoulder (or pork butt roast) is necessary to use. Yes it has ...

Kahula Pork

Spring has come and we are starting to get very involved in after school activities. Kahula Pork is a good meal option because you prepare it the night before. When we come home from the activity of the night the house smells good. The rice is started right away and dinner can be on the table in the time it takes for everyone to wash up, set the table and cut some fruits and veggies. The first step is to poke holes in your 6 pound pork shoulder or pork butt roast. Don't worry about ...

Danish Puff Pork Chops

I remember eating Danish Puff Pork Chops when I was young. My Little Chefs enjoy this meal occasionally at family dinner with Grandma and Grandpa, cousins...the whole gang! I recently learned my Grandmother used to make this for company when my mom was little. She even made it for my other set of Grandparents when they had a meal together when my parents got engaged. This recipe has history in my family so I wanted to teach it to my Little Chefs. Making danish puff pork chops with my ...

Honey-Balsamic Lamb Chops

It's another Giada recipe day! Little Chef A likes pork chops. She found this recipe in her cookbook she received for Christmas, Giada at Home: Family Recipes from Italy and California. We have never tried lamb chops, but  decided we could switch out the protein and it would still work.       I got out the food processor for her to use. I really should teach her how to put all the parts together so she can do it by herself. She put in the balsamic vinegar, garlic and honey. ...
