Sausage & Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Sausage & Mushroom Quiche

Zucchini Pizza Casserole

I don’t have a garden.  If I did, I wouldn’t know what to do with it.  But I like the idea of a garden, and having a plethora of fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs in my back yard (and fewer trips to the grocery store).  Recently, some of the families in my neighborhood put together…

No one in this house is in Back-to-School mode, thank goodness!  Just thinking about Owen’s first day of pre-school (yes, in two years) could make me cry.  I’m so glad we’re so far from that.

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Graham Cracker Squares

I sat and thought about what to call these for at least an hour. Graham Crackers on Crack…. Loaded Graham Cracker Squares…. White Chocolate Peanut Butter Grahams… Candy Graham Bars…. Even Brett chimed in…. “Dang-You-Woman-Why’d-You-Have-to-Make-These-Crazy-Good-Cracker-Things!”After which he said, “I could eat a thousand of them.”   In the end, I just decided to go with White…

Lime Cucumber & Watermelon Kabobs

I’ve never been a huge fan of cucumbers.  In fact, they used to make me gag.  Something about their texture and lack of flavor.  I still don’t understand how people eat them plain. I have however, discovered a few ways to eat cucumbers that I actually really like.  For starters, the cucumbers always have to…
