Potato Salad

I am kind of particular about potato salad.  I have never been a fan of grocery store potato salad…what do they do to that stuff?  Ick!  And, I have tried a few potato salad recipes and never really loved them, but on a whim I found this one online at a food site called aspiceyperspective.com …

Wedge Salad

The temperature is rising, and I am still homeschooling my kids! Also, I still have just a few dyed eggs left over from Easter that were screaming to be used. The thing that seemed absolutely necessary to me was to chop those eggs up onto a Wedge Salad. Now, I love blue cheese and blue…

Citrus Salad

This is a Cooks Illustrated find. I feel like those always turn out amazing. This is a great, sweet, fresh salad and the dressing is mostly just juice from grapefruit and oranges so nice and light. CITRUS SALAD Ingredients: 2 red grapefruits 3 navel oranges (tonight I just used 2 or each) 1 tsp sugar…

Crumbl Cookie

My kids took a cooking class last summer at the Provo rec. The theme of the week long camp was local favorites. One of the recipes they came home with is a Crumbl Cookie Copycat Recipe. Olivia particularly loves to make this recipe on the regular. Especially now, with all the time we have at…

Grilled Chicken Satay

I can’t even remember which magazine I clipped this recipe from a few year ago, but I have been craving Chicken Satay with a nutty dipping sauce, so I dug this out of my pile of clipped recipes this week. There has been been slight chaos going on lately with all the coronavirus craziness. I…

Alfredo Sauce

I made the best alfredo sauce on a whim and had to save the recipe.  I have attempted to make alfredo by following some online recipe many a times, but never thought any noteworthy.  Tonight though, this one I found on wholesomeyum.com was really good.  After dinner I told my husband I thought it was…

Navy Bean Soup

We had ham over the Christmas holiday and thus, we had a ham bone and hock left over which I intended to make into a soup. I decided to see if one of my favorite go to food bloggers, A Bountiful Kitchen, had a good recipe because I was bored with my go to (split…

Candied Cherry Cookies

One year when I was serving in the primary presidency, we hosted a teacher training meeting on an evening in December. Each of the presidency members brought a batch of cookies for refreshment. Barbara Higinbotham brought these super fun Christmasy cookies that I thought were so good. So, I asked for her recipe and she…

Orange Fruit Dip

Kabri Bishop brought around fruit dip to all the neighbors for neighbor gifts this Christmas.  My family totally enjoyed it.  I have had it before, and it was delicious so I was excited to have some on my hands again.  Olivia begged me to get her recipe, and she shared! KABRI’S FRUIT DIP Ingredients:   1…

Chinese Chicken Salad with Asian Peanut Dressing

I had left over rotisserie chicken in my fridge today that was calling to be used. I googled what to do with left over rotisserie chicken for the win and wound this great recipe. Derek and I loved it. The kids complained that it was a little spicy (so if you can’t take the heat…

Instant Pot Fajitas

This is the recipe that finally got me to see what all the instapot craze is about. I decided to make this on a night when I had to drop my daughter off at dance at 4 pm 10-15 minutes away and pick her up again at 5pm, and then scarf down dinner before getting…

Baked Brie

This is literally one of my all time favorite things to eat and it’s fairly simple.   Great for a party.  I like to serve it with sliced pieces of baguette, pears, celery, apples, crackers.  And you can honestly use any type of jam you like.  I often choose a lingonberry jam (a little sweet and…
