Welcome to the Rotation

  I love to try new recipes. I love finding things that I have not tried before and branching out to taste new flavors. I would say that on an average week, I make a given 5 new recipes…sometimes more, rarely less. The internet recipe sites, all of the published cookbooks and magazines out there […]

Really…We Are Still Sick

  I know… I am a horrible kid/family blogger. I am sorry I haven’t been keeping this part of the blog updated. Truth be told, sickness is still going around in our house. Jacob, knock on wood, is healthy but has to visit a specialist on Friday about a possible hernia he may have, which […]

From Disaster to Divine

  The first time I ever made clover rolls it was a kitchen disaster. To this day I have no idea what went wrong. The rolls that I had such high hopes for were hard as a rock. My husband and I had a fun time kicking them around the kitchen. I tried to give […]
