norske nook banana cream pie

My husband and I discovered this awesome restaurant while on our two week honeymoon road trip back in 1995. They serve hearty, delicious meals, and the most amazing pie! The Norske Nook in Osseo Wisconsin. Isn’t the name adorable? Definitely stop by if you happen to be in the area, and if not, get a…

bad girl treats

What are “bad girl” treats? Buttery cream cheese frosting and homemade sugar cookie stars to dip in the frosting. Pretty naughty, right? Oh well, we all need to splurge every once in awhile! I like to make these for parties and gatherings with my girlfriends. It’s such a fun, pretty dessert! Everyone loves them, (and…

glazed strawberry tart

This is a beautiful, delicious, free-form tart that showcases perfectly ripe, sweet, juicy strawberries! It’s so simple to prepare, and it’s quite a showstopper! The crust is flavored with just a hint of almond, and it’s the perfect accompaniment to the yummy berries! Almond flour can be found by the natural foods at most grocery…

KFC Biscuits {copycat}

If you’ve been looking for a biscuit recipe that tastes exactly like KFC biscuits, then you’re search is over. These taste exactly, I mean exactly, like the original KFC buttermilk biscuits! I worked at a KFC for a summer when I was a teenager, and once in awhile I had to make the biscuits. I…

crock pot hawaiian pork chops

We enjoyed these amazing Hawaiian pork chops for dinner this evening. They are easy to prepare and so tender! The sauce thickens on it’s own as it cooks so there’s no need to thicken it after the pork chops are done cooking. I eliminated a common step in slow cooker cooking by adding quick cooking…

creamy crock pot porcupine meatballs

Tender, rice-filled, beef meatballs in a rich, creamy, sauce! This is an old, comfort food recipe that was common in my house growing up. I know a lot of people are used to porcupine meatballs made with tomato sauce, but we like the creamy sauce even more! These little meatballs look like little porcupines when…

amish strawberry rhubarb cobbler

So I’ve made a big pan of Amish Rhubarb Dream Bars, a Rhubarb Picnic cake, and two loaves of rhubarb bread (recipe coming soon.) And I STILL have two giant Ziplocs FULL of fresh rhubarb. I guess it’s a good problem to have, because everyone in our house adores rhubarb desserts. I suppose I can…

country club smoked almond chicken salad

Reminiscent of a chicken salad sandwich I enjoyed while visiting a country club for lunch a while back. Tangy, sweet, smoky, and crunchy! This chicken salad has it all! Amp up the smokiness by using smoked chicken, along with the smoked almonds, if you have access to it. 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, smoked…

amish rhubarb dream bars

I received a giant bag of fresh rhubarb a few days ago from a friend, so I’ve been busy in the kitchen baking up some rhubarb magic! This is another favorite, Amish recipe that I discovered in a bunch of recipes I bought at an estate sale in Harmony, Minnesota. It’s one of the best…
