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…

Lemon Rosemary Loaf

Hello to all the readers! If you caught today’s Home on My Range broadcast, thanks for watching.  If  not, that’s okay too.  Just click here to check out today’s and previous live shows. I have had a life where I have moved around quite a bit and got to know all different climates, experienced different…

Looking for a Few Good Cooks

Good morning everyone! It did nothing but snow yesterday and it gave me the most perfect excuse to stay at home and start a rather ambitious project that I have been wanting to do for some time, write a cookbook. I spent the day categorizing, sorting, and determining which recipes would go into the book…

Taco Salad

One of my readers recently asked about some food ideas that were tasty, filling, and fit into their dietary restrictions. No problem. Mr. Stacy and I have been making taco salad since we have been together.  It’s really one of his specialties.  Because it’s very tasty, fairly simple, and quite an ingredient flexible dish it’s…

Rolled Sugar Cookies

I am going to be completely honest, I hate sugar cookies.  I enjoy eating good sugar cookies, but I hate making the damn things.  These things were just a mystery to me with the mixing, chilling, rolling, getting them cut without sticking to the counter.  Let’s not even get into the baking with the spreading…

Crushed Garlic Paste

Is there anything better than garlic in cooking?  Well, I guess butter.  So…. next to butter is there anything better?  Did someone say alcohol?  Oh my gawd, making this hard tonight. Okay, okay. Next to those other two things, is there really anything better than garlic?  You better be thinking “No!” just this once.  Now…

Once in a Blue Moon Mashed Potatoes

Potatoes don’t have to be basic. Creamy pale classic is good.  However, sometimes different is good. The first time I saw blue potatoes, I had a real “What the hell?”  I bought a few out of curiosity and cooked them up for dinner like any other potato.  I found, other than the coloring, they tasted…

Honey Garlic Green Beans

Green beans don’t have to be blah.  Mr. Stacy is not a fan of green beans.  If given a choice, he’ll go without vegetables, which is saying something from someone who still loves vegetarian cuisine from time to time.  However, when made with right amount of tang and flare, it meets with the approval of…

The Gourmet Ingredient Gallop

Today the weather was the warmest it’s been all week.  In honor of our second week as a blog we went on a gourmet ingredient tour of Bozeman.  (I do say we because my husband, while not an author, does quite a bit to help me out.)  A good time was had by all and…

Streusel Pumpkin Pie

So, it was this last summer when my husband and I had our 10th wedding anniversary.  We like to keep things simple, oh so simple.  Simple like pie simple.  While I can fawn over about any sweet treat, my husband is a different story.  He prefers goodies that aren’t too sweet, but are quite tasty. …
