Why this blog??

Why this blog?? I often find myself stressing over what to make for my family for dinner. We live a busy life and some meals need time to prep, cook and let's not forget shopping for everything you need. I love cookbooks and websites, but there are so many recipe's at times it is overwhelming. The recipe's I will be posting are things I actually made. I will tell you if they are easy or more time consuming. I will also tell you if they are good. Most of these are recipe's I have made for years and continue to make because they are easy or quick and my family loves them and i know yours will too! I will also try to at least once in a whlie try a new recipe I've found on line or in a book and honestly rate it. I always encourage others to send me their favorite recipe's as well! I am a mom... not a chef. But I am a mom who enjoys cooking for her family and making a somewhat healthy meal (some days more healthy than others:) ) In each recipe I will share how I recommend serving it, any substitutions I can think of that are also good, or ways to prepare ahead of time to make the cooking part seem quicker! I am not a photographer, as you can see... most of these pictures are taken from my phone camera, so may not be the best! I love to hear from others who have made these recipes and what they have done to change the recipe... please post comments! Thank you! To "like" me on facebook, go to this link...

S'more's Brownies

I made these the other day and they were a HUGE hit! Actually I made 2 batches since the first one I burnt to a crisp!!! (Tip: when they are done... Don't put them under broil to toast marshmallows more and then walk away and forget about them for 5+ minutes... your house will be full of smoke and the smoke alarms will wake your kids up from their naps!)

*Brownie Mix (and any ingredients that the brownie mix calls for)
*2 cups mini marshmallows
*8 1.5oz Chocolate Bars, chopped into about 1/2 inch squares
*6 Graham Crackers broken into 1 inch pieces

*Prepare Brownie Mix. Pour into greased 9x13 baking pan and cook at 350 for 15 minutes.
*While Brownies are cooking, toss the marshmallows, chocolate chunks, and Graham crackers pieces in a large bowl.
*Sprinkle the S'mores mixture over brownies evenly
*Continue to cook for another 15 minutes. Marshmallows should be slightly golden.
