Blueberry Belgium Waffles


Last October we took a road trip to New Mexico to visit our friends Carole and Edana. On our way there we stopped for lunch in Amarillo and decided against the standard burger and fries.  Instead we opted for a late breakfast at Waffle House.  I know, I know...... but they really do know how to make a mean waffle!   Jimmy ordered a regular waffle and bacon and proceeded to do this to it........


Those of you who are "Breaking Bad" fans will get a kick out of this. In fact we had quite a "Breaking Bad" weekend as you will see..........

Fast and Easy Firecracker Chicken



This Firecracker Chicken is one of my new favorite recipes.  It's fast and easy to throw together for a weeknight meal instead of stopping for Chinese take-out.  It's amazingly similar to my Buffalo Chicken Salad that I make at least once a week pictured below.  I used to use Membersmark Chicken poppers but can't seem to find them at Sam's any longer so now I use Tyson Crispy Chicken strips and cut them into bite size pieces after cooking.  I always keep these on hand!  In fact right now I have 5 packages in my freezer.  You can do so many things with them!

Sunday Morning Popovers




Years ago when I was dating my husband Jim, I had him over for lunch to show him my "mad cooking" skills, hoping to impress him a bit.  I remember I made a recipe for dill chicken salad with whole wheat popovers from one of my Southern Living Light cookbooks.  Well, considering we celebrate our 24th anniversary next month I guess that chicken salad/popover lunch worked it's magic on him.

State Fair Inspired Homemade Corn Dogs



Sunday was the last day of the State Fair here in Oklahoma and being that it was a beautiful day we all piled in the car and went.  We walked around a bit before deciding what calorie laden treats we wanted.  Isn't there something about the Fair that just makes you feel like a kid again?  The sights, sounds and smells....amazing!  I love it and especially the food!   The one thing I always get every year is the Dan's Famous Indian Taco.  Unless you make one at home like my Indian Taco with Cheddar-Jalapeno Waffles they are hard to find in a restaurant.  Jim always gets a pork sandwich (boring but good), roasted corn and a nutty bar.  I wanted a corn dog all day but didn't end up getting one.  I whined about it on the way home and Jim said....let's just make some for dinner.  Brilliant!

Easy Tom Kha Kai Soup and some Fall Knitting



My son Tyler is home from Oklahoma State this weekend and somehow it just ended up being the two of us for lunch today.  I have been eyeing this recipe for some time over at ourbestbites.com and decided today (the first day of Fall) was the day to try it.  As he does every weekend Ty was skyping with his friend Kari who is 1/2 Thai and  telling her we were having a Thai Coconut Soup.  She texted back......TOM KHA KAI!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL!  So........here is our Easy Tom Kha Kai Soup.  I can't tell you how flavorful yet easy this soup is.  This one's for you Kari!

Chocolate "Skillet" Cake


Monday is my son Tanner's 19th birthday!  I seriously can not believe he is already 19!  Here is a picture of the two of us at his high school graduation a couple of years ago.   He is a  now sophomore at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater and doing great.  I'm a very proud mom!

Asiago Cheese Bread Boats with Pesto and Bacon


Awhile back our friends Kevin and Jennifer came to spend the weekend with us.  I love when they visit and I always try to think of something extra special for breakfast.  This gorgeous bread boat that I found on Pinterest (but tweaked into my own recipe) was delicious and definitely company worthy!  

Luckly I have a Panera Bread not too far away because I adore their breads and their little asiago cheese demi was perfect for this.  I was tempted to try the regular sized loaf but I'm glad I resisted the urge. Once cut into pieces the size is a perfect serving for breakfast.  I served it with my Stain Glass Fruit Salad and it paired together wonderfully!
