Oh no. Another new gadget to try! Just ordered this and can't wait to make one filled with Chili and cheese. Oh and maybe some scrambled eggs and ham. Maybe some chicken waffle tacos! Oh and some ice cream with chocolate syrup and lots of toppings..... what a cool new toy for me! And a great price too when you order it with the Welcome Home link! Watch the video on the comment...

OMG people.....someone posted a political anti-Trump post on my page and instead of questioning what happened and knowing me well enough to realize that this would be totally out of character for me...I was attacked and threatened and reminded that you come here for free recipes....not my political opinions. So much for friendship and loyalty....and giving me the benefit of the doubt. Out of...

I love this recipe. It's perfect for that elegant luncheon with friends. The shrimp are tender and succulent, the asparagus is perfectly blanched to keep that slight crunch and the walnuts are the delicious added touch! The Vinaigrette has a wonderful light and citrus flavor with just a touch of dill that goes perfectly with the shrimp. This is a keeper my friends!

Tender chunks of chicken with granny smith apples, grapes, celery and walnuts to give it the perfect crunch. Served on crisp buttery club crackers. So good this way but I made enough for later this week to serve on a nice soft buttery croissant or Kaiser roll. I love this salad and it's so easy to make.

I love a great salad and a chef's salad is one of my favorites. And what's a salad without homemade dressing. I like blue cheese but this time I went with my homemade ranch dressing. Oh Yum!

Because of you my friends, 30 homeless men and women had a wonderful breakfast yesterday morning. They had another hot breakfast this morning. And tomorrow they will all be served Cracker Barrel's Buttermilk Biscuits with Country Ham.

I want to say thank you to everyone that contributed to "The Helping Hand" mission that began on January 2nd and runs through next Monday, January 9th. Thanks...

Here's another wonderful soup that just says comfort food to me. I like my soup rich and thick and creamy with a vegetable now and then to make it somewhat healthy! LOL. I like to serve this in a hollowed out bread bowl too. So good and so easy to make!

What is it about winter that makes you want to get up early and put on a pot of homemade soup? Maybe all those times our Mom's told reminded us that a hearty bowl of soup would stick to your ribs? Maybe because you put so many great veggies and things that are good for you? Maybe it just says comfort. Maybe it makes us warmer and more cozy. Whatever it is, as soon as the first cold day...

I'm not into those thin broth-like soups unless I am having Won Ton soup or Egg Drop soup. I like my soups thick and chunky. So when I make a home made beef vegetable soup....it is very close to a stew. I am definitely a meat and potatoes... girl and I like to eat my chunks of vegetables and beef...not drink them!

This thick and creamy soup is the perfect solution to leftover chicken or turkey. Served with dinner rolls or homemade biscuits, it is the ultimate comfort food!

Use it to strip kale,collards,chard and herb leaves from stems in seconds with this simple little kitchen tool. I use it for all my herbs like oregano,rosemary,thyme, etc. Just insert the stem and pull through the...

I have a new friend and I'm crazy about her! She arrived at Christmas and I haven't stopped talking to her or about her since! Her name is Alexa and she will do almost anything for me. She is my own personal assistant and she makes my life fun.

Listen, I recommend a lot of things here at Welcome Home, but I have never been so enthusiastic about anything as I am this. I'm just baffled at how...

These little Roast Beef Sliders with Crispy Fried Onions are always a big hit when I need something simple and quick for a party or get together. The combination of tender roast beef on buttery sweet rolls with a little crunch is out of this world! You probably should make a couple of pans because they go fast! This is a keeper my friends!

Her Hands...

Her hands held me gently from the day
I took my first breath.
Her hands helped to guide me
as I took my first step.

Her hands held me close when the tears
would start to fall.
Her hands were quick to show me
she could take care of it all.

Her hands were there to brush my hair,
or straighten a wayward bow.
Her hands were there to comfort the hurts
that didn't always...

The Faded Rose

The park bench was deserted as I sat down to read,
beneath the long, branches of an old willow tree.
Disillusioned by life with good reason to frown,
for the world was intent on dragging me down.

And if that weren't enough to ruin my day,
a little boy approached me, all tired from play.
He stood right before me with his head tilted down
and said with excitement, "Hey!...

I am not into spicy hot wings. But I love sweet sticky wings like honey or honey mustard. Last year for the big Super Bowl game, I made the regular hot and spicy wings as usual, but I also came up with my own version of sticky wings with orange and honey and they were a huge hit!

I love making little pastries and freezing them for when unexpected guests arrive during the holidays. I just take them out of the freezer and in 10 minutes they are completely thawed. Don't be afraid to make French Pastries. They are all the same basic ingredients starting with puffed pastry and a cream custard filling. These are delicious and easy to make. Serve large ones or cut them into...
