air fryer italian dunkers

We like to make Italian Dunkers for quick lunches, appetizers, and as a side dish to a pasta meal. For years I’ve made them the traditional way (in the oven), with a hearty meat sauce (now I use Beyond Meat or a can of well-drained lentils.) But there’s an even faster and easier way if…

my big fat greek potato salad

This potato salad is hearty and satisfying and could definitely stand alone as lunch or dinner. Isn’t it pretty? It has all of the amazing flavors of traditional Greek salad, but I added oven roasted baby potatoes and tofu “feta” for protein. You could use macaroni in place of the potatoes if you wish. It’s…

empty tomb easter rolls

Empty tomb rolls, also called resurrection rolls, are a fun way to teach children the story of Jesus’ burial and resurrection at Easter time. Throughout the baking process the marshmallow that is placed in the center of the roll disappears, leaving the roll like an empty tomb. Pretty neat, huh? Simplify the Easter story for…

easy italian air fryer calzone

An air fryer is a nearly perfect little appliance to have in your kitchen when you’re in a hurry. I made up this big, saucy, zesty Italian calzone for my lunch today using leftover pizza sauce, various pizza toppings, cheese, garlic butter, and Pillsbury Grands crescent roll dough. You can make a big calzone for…

Irish Colcannon

With so many Irish colcannon recipes out there to choose from, I thought you’d enjoy this one because it’s slightly different. Everyone seems to love the addition of leeks and garlic because they add so much flavor and depth to the dish. Cashew cream (or vegan cream cheese) adds additional richness to this colcannon. So…

air-fried peanut butter cups

I’m obsessed with my air fryer. It’s so much fun coming up with new, easy recipes to share with all of you. My latest creation was inspired by a Minnesota State Fair favorite. Fried candy bars. Fried peanut butter cups to be exact. You could use any fun-size candy bar you like. Snickers, Milky Way,…

easy air fryer donuts

I finally made air fryer donuts and donut holes! They’re so darn fun to make, and easy too! Only 4 ingredients. You start with a tube (or two) of Pillsbury Grands biscuits. If you want to make them vegan, be sure to check the packaging. Some contain dairy and some don’t These would be the…

campfire s’mores popcorn

Here’s something delicious and fun to make for your next movie night. It’s sweet, salty, and tastes like a campfire s’mores! This yummy popcorn is definitely sweet enough to double as dessert. Make a big batch because it goes fast. I’ve been having a great time coming up with gourmet popcorn treats. If you want…

meatball sub pizza

Hello! How have you all been? I’ve been good, but it has been CRAZY cold here in Minnesota. 26 degrees below zero today. It’s warmer in my refrigerator than it is outside. How did you all celebrate Valentine’s Day? On Friday night Jeff took me to the always beautiful Port of Red Wing (located in…

vegan cheesy broccoli soup

This soup is cheesy, rich, and smooth with big chunks of veggies added at the end. If you want it to be totally smooth, just puree all the veggies at once. It’s totally a matter of preference. What I love about this soup is that it’s healthy and cheesy even without adding any vegan cheese.…
