Wild Pear glaze/sauce

My in laws have a wild pear tree and every year I think surly there is something I can do with them and not let them go to waste.  Wild pears are super hard so they aren’t very good to just eat.  I had a big ham and wanted to do something with it so me and…

Pepper Beef Stir Fry

Recently I got a wok and now it is one of my new favorite things!! I have always wanted one and always kept an eye out for one.  When the shut down happened me and my family stuck pretty close to home so I decided to just go ahead an order one.  The day I…

Sausage Gravy

I love breakfast food, normally not at breakfast time, so every now and then my family and I make a ridiculous amount of breakfast food together for dinner.

Quarantine Shopping

This is such a strange and challenging time in our history…the fight of a virus and lockdown. Since grocery stores are still open I thought it would be a good idea to put together a shopping list of things that can get you through a large span of time. Keep shopping trips only once in…
