When I lived in Salt Lake City, Utah, my dear friend Kerri introduced me to her version of Shredded Beef Enchiladas. I have been making them ever since. This recipe is especially good for groups, parties, teams, or hungry boys. You can make a ton and freeze them. I always have a pan of these waiting [...]
Mud pie for birthday dessert is a strong tradition in our family. Every year I ask the kids,“still want mud pie?” “YEP!” they answer without an ounce of hesitation. Mud pie is easy to make, but requires days of preparation. First, I bake the Oreo crust that has been run through the food processor, and mixed [...]
This is a perfect meal after a day on the slopes, or to feed a hungry crew. A sure crowd pleaser. I also love this meal because I can freeze it and then throw it in the crock pot. It’s warm and waiting for us when we get home.

Healthy, flavorful, and easy, this meal is a great family dinner option.
What’s not to like about this dish??? Cream, pesto, chicken and pasta. DONE!
This meal is my all-time favorite picnic fare. You will love the texture of the bread, chewy with an herb explosion on the inside, and crisp on the outside. The chicken is tender and flavorful. When I make this for people, they go on and on about it, but it really is so easy to [...]
