    Posted on August 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    My grandmother got this recipe somewhere, and it fast became a family favorite. It’s about the only dessert My Cowboy will eat. You can use any flavor of pudding you have a hankerin’ for. Guess what My Cowboy likes? — one box of banana flavor, and one of butterscotch — he calls it Bananascotch. I […]

    Posted on July 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    This salad is not only pretty to look at and very delicious, it’s actually quite healthy for you! And it’s a good one to take to picnics because there’s no mayonnaise in it. It can handle sitting out for a bit without poisoning any attendees — always a plus, right? 1/2 cup extra virgin olive […]

  • Swiss Beans

    Posted on February 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    My favorite side dish. Ever. My kids even like it. It’s definitely not the healthiest way to eat your green beans, but they sure are tasty. But isn’t everything a bit tastier when you add sour cream and cheese? Or is that just me? 2 tbsp. butter, twice, melted 2 tbsp. flour 1/4 tsp. pepper […]
