Orange Creamsicle Bars

I posted this recipe in June of 2016 but it’s so good I wanted to share it again. Being an adult has its advantages but being a kid is a lot of fun! Summertime means long evenings playing outside and getting special treats. Orange Creamsicle Bars take me back to long ago summer evenings and there’s no baking involved!  I think they’ll be a summertime favorite for your family, too!

Aunt Millie’s Hungarian Goulash

My parents had a very close group of friends and I grew up thinking they were relatives. It was Aunt Penny & Uncle Reggie, Aunt Wanda & Uncle Bill, Aunt Millie & Uncle Dave… I was shocked to learn that they weren’t actually aunts and uncles. But they were loved as much as any blood relative and they taught me so much. One thing I learned was how to make Aunt Millie’s Hungarian Goulash!

I was feeling a little adventurous last night while thinking about what to make for dinner. When I mentioned my idea to Mr. Comfortable he was a bit uncertain.

An Inadvertent Recipe Thief

Not long ago I posted a recipe for my  Cheddar Lake Biscuits. I’ve been making them forever and I was quite sure I’d come up with the recipe myself. But a couple of days ago I pulled out a box of Bisquick™ and noticed a recipe for Cheddar Bay Biscuits on the back of the box. So now it’s time for the confession of an inadvertent recipe thief.

Since Andi brought me that big bag of asparagus I can’t stop thinking about it. I made Simple Roasted Asparagus the other day but I had asparagus left and still wanted more! Just to jazz things up I listened to a suggestion Margaret from Soul Food 101 and made Parmesan Lemon Roasted Asparagus.

Dried Cranberry & Candied Pecans

After making homemade croutons a few days ago I had a hankering for another salad topper we enjoy. Mr. Comfortable picked up a bag of dried cranberry & candied pecans a while back. We loved them. In fact I loved them not just on salads. I snacked on them until they were gone. Oops. So I made a big batch of homemade Dried Cranberry & Candied Pecans. Now there’s enough for salads and snacks!
