Sour Cream Cucumber & Onion Salad

So, I know this seems like a rather summery side dish, but it’s in the 80’s in Florida, so we’ll be eating this in December. Why not? I found this recipe on Deep South Dish. The only downside to it is that you really do have to let it chill in the fridge overnight, or […]

I’d put my cookies out for Santa and promptly take my pink, bubble-gum-tasting Amoxicillin before heading to bed, hoping to hear sleigh bells through my double ear infections.

We typically buy fresh veggies, but we’ve had a couple of bags of frozen broccoli and a veggie medley in our freezer for a while. So, I decided it was time to try something with the broccoli. If successful, I figure it will become a nice side for some of the meals I pack for […]
