Tuna Macaroni Salad

Tuna Macaroni Salad is one of my favorite salads from when I was young. I’m sure everyone has a tuna mac salad recipe, but I chose this to be my first post because it reminds me of summer. Ahh…Summer…As I sit here and the temp is hovering  just barely above and mostly below zero, it […]

Chicken Fajita Soup

It was the Polar Vortex here in Minnesota this last week, temperatures of 25 below zero with wind chills in the 52 below zero range.

Cajun Chicken Alfredo

I love Alfredo! Everything tastes better in a creamy butter and Parmesan cheese sauce. The Cajun seasoning adds a spicy kick to the sauce and there is nothing much better than that. This is one of my very favorite recipes of all time, and since it is the season for over indulgence, I thought it might […]
