Grilled Chicken Salad

On the nights that life is hard and coming up with a meal is too daunting of a task we like to turn to salads. Green salads full of crunch and flavor have been a standard go to for us when we aren’t sure what to make for quite some time, soup being the other….

Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash

There is that part of me that recognizes the need for healthy foods and lighter fare.  And, for the most part, I wouldn’t call my cooking overly rich or heavy.  But it definitely hardy and meant to stick with you for a long period of time.  Not to mention the need for leftovers because saving…

Shepard’s Pie

We are getting ready for March here.  March means three things: Spring St. Patrick’s Day My Birthday In short, the celebration of all things green and Irish.  (Technically I am only part Irish.  I am also Welsh, German, English, and other.  Essentially, I am American.)  This is the time of year when I can really…

Bacon & Cheese Beer Bread

    Mr. Stacy loves a good beer bread, especially when it’s soft, warm, and full of all the little things that he enjoys like good beer, cheese, and bacon.  Can’t say I blame him.  I think I am right there with him.  It wasn’t until I moved to Germany where I found out what…

This morning I decided that I really should do that this year. I can get out. Meet people. Share my food. Plus, make a little money…

Beer Cheese Dip with Sausage

Flathead Cherry BBQ Sauced Chicken Wings

When you have a blog and an online cooking show, one of the things that you learn to cope with quickly is what the heck to do with all that food that you’ve made.  Mr. Stacy and I don’t have children of our own.  However, it doesn’t stop me from exercising my tendency to be…

The Dreaded Cold and Flu Season

As lovely as Montana is, it is not isolated from the rest of the world and cold and flu season has settled in horrifically.  The number of sick people at work seems to grow exponentially and even I have succumb to the horrors of the cold.  I spent a week marinating in cold and flu…
