Chicken for Cheese and Mushroom Lovers!

Chicken for Cheese and Mushroom Lovers!

Today I had a friend over for lunch and was inspired to whip out one of my go-to recipes for a quick and delicious meal. I’ve also made this as a special birthday dinner for my mother, so shout out to my mom! What I’m going to describe today is a no-fuss chicken the starts […]

From My Mom’s Kitchen: A Tasty Spamwich?? Yes!

My family has always enjoyed taking day trips to discover and re-experience all the local fun and sights available near or around our town.

Lemon Bars You Say?

Lemon bars always fascinated me while I was growing up. It’s not that I believed the combination of lemons, flour and sugar could magically transport me to a 60s era, where children were allowed to play out in the street with no supervision and families could go to bed with their doors unlocked. It’s more […]
