taco seasoning

Packaged taco seasoning usually has traces of gluten in it. I have frequently made my own seasoning mix to try and avoid the gluten. But, also because I have forgotten to pick up a packet a few times at the store! Use this on all of your favorite taco recipes.

grammy’s lasagna

Lasagna. One of my favorite foods of all time. My mother (R&R’s grammy) makes the absolute best lasagna. For our wedding, she laminated a bunch of recipes written by the women in my family and put them into a recipe box. The lasagna recipe card is always in front and […]

guacamole: simple, a little extra, fancy

Avocados are by far one of my top 5 favorite foods. When you can mush those up and put them on chips and tacos or slice them up for salads, or eggs – SOLD! The possibilities are really endless. I have come up with 3 easy guacamole recipes. Each has […]

A full chicken?! It is FAR easier than you realize to cook a whole bird and you get a ton of fantastic meat out of it. It can be cheaper than buying an already cooked rotisserie chicken from the store and you can experiment to make it taste how you […]

My husband is asked quite frequently what he likes most about my cooking – cuisines, recipes, ingredients. He is my biggest fan and most considerate critic! Luckily, he says he can count on ONE hand the number of meals he hasn’t enjoyed in 8 years of marriage. I consider that […]
