Chicken Twist

Our dear friend, Sara, made this for both of us at a lunch 6 years ago and it's something that we both still remember.  It's just that good.  We adapted it slightly here by using a different kind of dough, but we were both so happy with how it turned out!  

Our kids loved it and it was a refreshing change to add into our dinner rotation.  Chicken, cheese, red bell pepper, and seasonings get stuffed into a Rhodes loaf and baked until golden.  

We're sharing the recipe here today

No-Bake Mini Samoa Cheesecakes

Cheesecake is definitely a favorite dessert for both of us as is evident here, here, here, and here...and a few other places.  

I don't know we could narrow it down to a single favorite, but this one is pretty near the top of the list.  It comes together fast, can be made ahead of time, is perfectly portioned so you can pull just what you need out of the freezer, and it's perfect for the warmer months because it is no-bake.  

There is nothing that is not to love about this coconut-y, caramel-y, chocolaty, bit of heaven!

Rustic Homemade Hashbrowns

We seriously have breakfast for dinner once a week. Why? Because is't easy, we always have stuff on hand, and nobody in the house whining, only eating!

But sometimes I like to go a little beyond pancakes and waffles with eggs.  And have an extra side.....hashbrowns.  These little gems are a family favorite. And my girls wouldn't touch potatoes until recently - and I told them these tasted just like french fries and that was enough to get them to try them.  My cute 3 year old said...."Mom, I can't stop eating these!"  If there are any words I love to hear it's when they enjoy something that I spent time making for them!

These are simple to whip up and make the perfect side to your breakfast/brinner meal!

Lightened-up Beef Stroganoff

We love stroganoff at both of our houses! It's been a classic comfort food since we were kids!  In case you haven't had anything but the boxed version - no worries. This can be made in 20 minutes. Choose ground beef or sliced round steak - mix a few pantry staples together and wa-lah! Dinner is served.  Our kids love it too, and when there are no complaints at dinner - all is well!

Blender Pancakes

We rarely have a pancake breakfast. Maybe once a month or so on a lazy weekend. But we do have Brinner usually weekly and these pancakes are usually made at least twice a month for those brinner nights.  We've made them with whole grain, wheat, kamut and steel-cut oats! All have been fabulous. If you are gluten-free make sure to buy gluten-free steel cut oats and you can enjoy a fabulous pancake breakfast!  

You'll start by blending the milk and grain in the blender - and when it's done you'll pluse in the eggs, oil, baking powder, and salt.  Pour them on a hot buttered griddle and cook til golden. Stack em' with butter and top them with syrup, fruit, yogurt, jam, whatever you like!  And devour! We usually serve them with some scrambled eggs and a side of fruit or fruit salad!  

We hope you'll enjoy these as much as we do! 

Whole Grain Blender Pancakes


1 cup + 1 tablespoon wheat berries (OR 1 cup + 2 tablespoons kamut OR 1 ¼ cup steel cut oats/oat groats)
1 cup buttermilk
½ cup milk
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons sugar
3 tablespoons canola oil
¾ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder


Combine your choice of grain and buttermilk in blender. Blend for 3 minutes*. Add some of the milk if necessary to keep things moving. Add milk and continue to blend for 2 minutes until texture is completely smooth. Add all ingredients except baking powder and pulse until mixed well. Add baking powder and pulse until evenly incorporated. Cook on a hot griddle. Serve with desired toppings.
