Watermelon cupcakes that are super quick tomake!

Watermelon cupcakes that are super quick tomake!

I refuse to believe that summer is over.    I know that most kids are back in school, but I am unwilling to give up my summer just yet.  My hubby and I walked into Costco the other day and my husband saw winter coats and he made a point of making sure I saw them.  (He LOVES winter!) I told him that he better stop talking about it or else I would start crying and have a mental breakdown right there  in the middle of Costco! He politely shut up. I still have barbecues planned, I'm not ... Read more

Labor Day Roundup

Happy Labor Day!   It dawned on me early this morning that tomorrow is Labor Day. As I prepared this post I also realized that I look at patriotic holidays differently since marrying my husband. Both of his parents immigrated from Holland to the US in their early 20′s. My father-in-law came over first and […]

The last hurrah. That is what we call our Labor Day weekend. In our area, schools begin the day after Labor Day. Every year, we go away for the weekend and sort of tip our hats to the last of summer. It’s bittersweet. And a little bit hectic as we try to get everything done […]

Coconut Peanut Chicken Satay Stri Fry - 30 minutes to a flavorful, healthy dinner that tastes amazing!

Coconut Peanut Chicken Satay Stir-Fry

Want to know how to get picky eaters to chow down healthy vegetables? You could try psychology. I hear it takes 25 introductions to new foods before kids will take to it. You could try making a game of it. We used to call broccoli “trees” and cauliflower “clouds”. My daughter loved french fries when […]

Two Two Easy Peach Cobbler - This recipe calls for two of everything. So simple, you will want to make it again and again.

Two Two Easy Peach Cobbler

I love food. All kinds of food. One of my favorite kinds of food, is down home, southern cooking. Right now, right this very minute, I am sitting on a screened in porch over looking a beautiful lake in Southern VA. And I just saw a hummingbird flit by. It is the perfect way to […]

Revolution Cookies are a cookie the Founding Fathers would have been proud to eat. With oatmeal, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries and blueberries these red white and blue all American cookies are truly fantastic! #Cookie #Cookie Recipe

Revolution Cookies

Mrs. Travers had a bone to pick with me. Mom and Dad weren’t so happy either. But a lot of it was Tracy’s (the middle sister’s) fault for teaching me “the trick”. Only I can’t really, solidly put full blame on her for teaching me, because I learned it from her by eavesdropping. That is […]

Mediterranean Skillet Chicken - Bold, fresh, delish, one skillet, 30 minutes, dinner done!.jpg

Mediterranean Skillet Chicken

I recently shared this recipe for Mediterranean Skillet Chicken that has become a staple weeknight meal in our household at My Kitchen Escapades. Right now I am a little obsessed with the Mediterranean. Can you tell by the beautiful colors and flavors here in the photo? Artichokes, olives, tomato, garlic, basil, and feta combine to make […]

Crockpot Cream Cheese Taquitos - Use your crockpot to make this moist flavorful creamy chicken. Fill flour or corn tortillas with cream cheese chicken and cheese, bake and enjoy! These are fantastic!

Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos

I love these Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos because you make the chicken filling in the crockpot. Walking in the door to the smell of this flavorful creamy chicken filling was heaven! Right away my kids wanted to know what was cooking in the crockpot. I love pretty much everything about crockpot cooking. It’s easy, the […]

Magic Felted Wool Dryer Balls - use up to 20% less drying time = 20% less electricity, chemical and dye free, natural fabric softener, earth friendly, natural static remover and they are low maintenance, just leave them in your dryer. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to each Magic Felted Wool Dryer Ball for an amazing fresh smell in all your laundry. They are also a great gift idea!

Magic Wool Dryer Balls

DIY Wool Dryer balls? What are they and why would I want to make some? Those were my thoughts when I found this pin from  Holly Gray at Caleigh’s Corner.  My second thought was, loving the idea of not having to purchase dryer sheets, even better, I like the idea of not finding used dryer sheets on […]

Super easy trick to stop your bathroom mirror from fogging!

Stop your bathroom mirror from fogging!

Today I am going to get real. Like in real pictures of my real master bathroom. And my real master bathroom is real small.  But it has a real large mirror. That means that whenever I take a shower, the whole bathroom fogs up and my hubby can’t see in the mirror to shave. So […]

No Clip Chip Bag Flip Fold

Okay, so…it was me. It was totally me. But at the time I just didn’t want to admit it, because I really wanted them to like me. My in-laws. At our first family reunion after getting married I still felt new to the family, and was wanting to make a good impression. And I didn’t mean to […]

How To Peel An Egg With a Spoon

How to Peel an Egg With a Spoon

One dozen eggs. That is how many eggs my kids went through one Mother’s Day when they were trying to make me Belgian Waffles. My favorite recipe for Belgian Waffles calls for egg whites whipped to peaks and folded into the batter. First my kids could not figure out how to separate the eggs. Then […]
