{Recipe} 15-minute Lasagna

Congratulations to Lindzee for winning the signed copy of The House at Rose Creek by Jenny Proctor! I’ve been a little MIA lately due to Disneyland, Memorial Day, a birthday tossed into the fixings and then this wonderful teasing thing called Summer Vacation. We start soon…I can taste it! But we still have a couple days filled with award ceremonies, blatant flash photography and trying to get out the door on time. In the meantime, I had to share a little something with you. Last night I made a dinner I think needs to be in your hands. It’s DELISH and even though we ate it like a herd of rhinos on stampede (grabbing a bite before rushing out for the preschool graduation) it was amazing and simple. How many times do those descriptors come together over a LASAGNA...

Obsessed {Recipe}

Does anyone else have a compulsive pumpkin issue? Marrying my hubby only made mine worse. Before I met him, I was a fan of pumpkin recipes, but throw in his tendency to love pumpkin desserts and…well, you understand. Now each time I see a pumpkin recipe out there I immediately pin it to try in the future. Since school began I’ve been the best mom ever, preparing a snack every afternoon for my cute and often ravenous kiddos when they get home. I really do this for my own safety. The goal is to avoid having them munch through a wall or take down a leg of ham or something…though I don’t have a leg of ham around so you can understand the urgency to have something ready for them to sink their teeth into before the walls are in danger. I cannot...

Testing – testing

Have I mentioned my propensity for trying new recipes. For parties, or when guests are coming for dinner or I’m bringing something for a dinner swap? I just can’t help it! I see something that sounds delicious and I know it will be…I just feel it! The other day it was this: Okay, so I made my Dinner Swap friend my guinea pig this time, but she wasn’t alone. I made it for us too, in my nice big slow cooker. Can I rave about how easy it was, how I had almost everything right on hand, how I swapped Swiss for Provolone and it was still mmmm-mazing? Oh my! It was so delish! It got thumbs up from all my little rascals! These lovely ladies have also published a brand new cookbook and you might need to check it out. At least hop over and grab this...

Freeze

Let’s be honest. I have a problem. (Why does this not surprise anyone?  😉 ) When I don’t know how I want to proceed, I usually freeze. In October I went to an amazing conference for bloggers and the news was intense, interesting, deliberate. And I froze. Because as fabulous as the information was, I was processing from a different perspective than ever before. In my past lives I’ve been a crafty blogger, spinning off designs and recipes with my dear friend Heather of WhipperBerry. It was a lot of fun – but always in the back of my mind, I was a writer: Secretly seeking Christene Houston…{the author}. When the time came and my book was out, I was blogging like it was business. I posted every. single. day. I wrote in advance, two weeks at a time. I...

Texas Caviar { Recipe }
