Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad

Standard

Looking for a great dish to take to your weekend BBQ,
and one that’s easy to fix?

This dish is it. It’s delicious and it’s fresh.

I made it a couple of weekends ago for a BBQ
and had some requests for the recipe.

Of course you know my answer was,

“I’ll be sure to put it on my blog.”

Yummy Monday: Banana Blueberry Muffins

Standard

My mom shared this recipe with me a while back, I think she may have gotten it from my sister.
It’s an extremely quick and easy recipe to make, and the muffins are naturally moist.
It is also wonderful to use for those couple of bananas that have gotten a little too ripe.
The only thing you may not have on hand are the blueberries but worth buying some!

Yummy Monday with Holiday Leftovers

Standard

Turkey and Stuffing Casserole

What to do with the leftover turkey? I’m sure most of you have already gone through your turkey and stuffing leftovers.

I used mine in a casserole the other night. It was so good I ran and got my camera, snapped a picture of what was left in the pan, and decided I should post the recipe for our Yummy Monday.

If it’s too late for Thanksgiving leftovers, you may have something to look forward to come Christmas!

Hope your Thanksgiving was full of good memories, and blessings to be grateful for . . .

Remember our “Christmas in July” post?

Standard

Back in July we posted some Christmas ideas, in my case – changing to a new theme entirely,
and in Amy’s case – adding some fun new things this year. You can see our post of ideas here . . .

 And then it was never mentioned again . . . until now!

The problem was I knew exactly what I wanted. And at the same time I was stumped as to what exactly I wanted.

It’s confusing I know, but this is how my mind functions 🙂

 It took me quite some time to pull my thoughts and ideas into something I could visualize and then carry out. This, at times, is quick and easy and other times can be a slow and frustrating process for me. Needless to say this was one of those slow arduous processes.

I have finally completed some decorations that I can show you. I will post more as I get them done – don’t be surprised if it’s after Christmas and well into next year. I went into this knowing it was going to be a gradual change over the next couple of Christmases as my time is quite limited!

2 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

Standard

I made the 2 ingredient pumpkin cake recipe made into muffins this morning and just wanted to share it with you!

I had sent a piece of the 2 ingredient pumpkin cake I made the other day in my kids’ school lunches. My oldest son shared his with a couple of his friends. They liked it so much that they suggested I use it for his birthday cake this weekend (and keep them stocked up on cake indefinitely.) We didn’t do a traditional cake with candles this year (as he is 14 now and not bothered by not blowing out candles, besides the fact that we took them out for pizza and ice cream instead.)

Anyway, He had his friends sleep over last night so I decided to make the recipe into muffins for breakfast this morning. They were perfect and gobbled up right away!

Pumpkin Chili! Pumpkin really is versatile :)

Standard

As Amy explained yesterday, I was having some difficulty finding canned pumpkin. I finally found some in a small local grocery store because I couldn’t find any in the big, main local grocery stores, or Wal-Mart, so thank you Sunflower Market! You saved my behind in blogland!

Apparently Starbucks and Einstien Brothers have the monopoly on purchasing canned pumpkin before October!

Amy actually found this recipe and pinned it for me on pinterest. What a great friend she is to have created a board just for me! I thought it sounded promising and wanted to try it out. I made it for dinner last night (just couldn’t get it posted until now) and I am here to tell you that it was very delicious. Not a strong pumpkin taste at all, very subtle. I am also including a recipe for Creamed Corn Cornbread.

So click on the picture below and try out the recipe!
