Late one night, Hubby and I decided we wanted peanut butter cookies. I didn’t feel like dealing with refrigeration, shaping, and all that other work that comes with cookies. So I took the lazy route and I made some dough instead. What’s better, I use banana in place of butter (you can sub the same

My family was never big on beef, but my in-laws totally are. As a result, over the past several years, I’ve gradually learned how to cook cow, and, with practice, I’ve gotten a bit better. Most of my beef dishes (that aren’t stew or chili, because we know at this point I can make those

I’ve been meaning to make some kind of soup in my pressure cooker. I was initially going to make some kind of corn chowder, but somehow, I ended up here instead. Corn chowder will almost certainly still happen, as it is delicious and I haven’t had it in forever. Today, though, we have broccoli soup

This is one of my favorite simple recipes. My mom used to make this granola for me when I was in high school (and occasionally when I was in college). It’s delicious, quick, and incredibly easy to make. You can also do a lot to personalize it by adding in seeds, nuts, fruits, or anything

Banana bread is one of my favorite treats. It’s just cakey enough to make my body think I’m giving it a real dessert, but it’s ever so slightly healthier for you. It’s high in fiber and a classic baked good in any American kitchen. In the past, we’ve had banana pumpkin bread, which had a

Somehow, I’ve managed to spend six years of my life with an Idahoan and almost two years living in the potato state without adding a mashed potato recipe to my blog. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t because I have some vendetta against mashed potatoes — they’re probably my favorite way to eat potatoes —

During the Great Depression, food was scarce and people had to make due with what they could get. Canned goods were extremely popular because they had long shelf lives and were inexpensive. For some people who grew up during the Depression, canned goods remained a staple in the pantry. As a kid, I remember my

Unpopular as the opinion may be, I’ve been a fan of organ meats since I was a little kid. My grandparents used to eat them on the regular, and I spent a lot of time with them. So, thanks to Nana and Poppa, I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for something most Americans
