Have you ever tried a turkey burger? What did ya think? I’m asking because I’ve never tried one, and truthfully I’ve never even been tempted. Until now. The lure of the new Jennie-O Jalapeño Jack Turkey Burgers was too much for me. Let me at ’em! They’re packaged in individual pouches, and each burger can […]
I love experimenting with herbs, spices and seasonings and combining them with simple comfort foods, so I made a cider-sage-molasses barbecue sauce for pork and chicken.
Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes…I have lots and lots of Red Gold premium tomatoes. What better to do with them than start cooking?! Sloppy Enchilada-Style Burritos The enchilada sauce will still be quite soupy after baking, so don’t worry. Spoon it over the tortillas as you serve them…the sloppier the better! Enjoy!

I don’t really care about the NFL, but I love me some college ball! It has heart and it still has purity. It’s football for the love of the game. Go Big Ten! So when football season rolls around, I can’t help but get fired up again. I root for my daughter’s alma mater and […]
August is National Panini Month! But since I’m fairly obsessed with paninis (the most magnificent sandwiches ever created), every month is panini month at my house. You have tried a panini, right? If you haven’t, DO IT. Paninis are grilled, pressed sandwiches from heaven. Trust me on that. During the cooking process the ingredients are […]
Earlier this year, I showed you how I cooked pork chops with KRAFT Fresh Take, and I pretty much followed the package directions. But last night, I wanted to use it in a more creative way, so I came up with the most delicious casserole! I used the Southwest Three Cheese kit (my absolute favorite), […]
