My husbands favorite comfort food, my mother-in-laws recipe!
Sunday, June 20, 2010
This is a funny "lite" summer dessert! I made this for Father's Day. The only thing that would be a nice alternative would be Coconut Jello (but they don't make that).

Grandpa's Vegetable Beef Soup Recipe
Saturday, June 12, 2010
Tonight after going to the grocery store, Jason and I looked at each other wondering what we would have for dinner. We got tons of groceries, and I planned meals for the rest of the week but had not thought about tonight. We were so hungry it was hindering our ability to decide on dinner, then Jason suggested a good comfort meal - Mac and Cheese.

When Jason and I started talking about having children, there were a couple of things
that we knew for sure we wanted to do. One thing we both agreed on from the beginning was homemade baby food. For the last year I have been doing a lot of research on homemade baby food, what equipment I would need, recipes, when to start making it, etc. I have acquired several different baby food cookbooks and found lots of websites. Since Lucas is now 4 months old and we are getting close to introducing baby food, I have started the cooking process.
Equipment that I decided to use:
They make these very nice (read - expensive) baby food cookers/steamers -
Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker. However I decided that before we made a purchase like this I would see if I could get the results I was looking for with kitchen equipment that I already have. So I will be using :
- Large Pot and lid
- Steamer Basket
- Ice Cube Trays
Foods I plan to start with:
- Sweet Potatoes
Each are easy to make and are recommended 1st foods. I will blog as I make each food.

Tonight's Menu :
Pan Fried Pork Chops
This is one of Jason's favorite meals and one of my favorite - cause it's simple and yummy.
A couple of weeks ago Pork Chops were on sale at our local grocery store. (I stock up and freeze meat when it's on sale, then menu plan from the freezer.) I pulled 4 pork chops out of the freezer last night and put them in the refrigerator to thaw.
Once the pork chops were thawed I seasoned each one on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
