Many delightful plans come to mind, with the first inkling of Autumn in the air, and this year has been no different for us. Baking is one of them, and at the top of that list, is always Apple Crisp! (With a scoop or 2 of vanilla ice cream, please!)
I admit, we are not above some Apple Crisp topping-help from a box. We’ve done that, and enjoy it! But this year, my friend Betty offered us her simple home made recipe for Apple Crisp. Betty is an awesome fellow photographer in Northern Virginia, Air Force wife, and inspiring Mama to 3. I
Recently, a very special breakfast was in order. It was our Trio’s 9th Birthday, and we always have a special breakfast on birthdays in our house. Usually, it is my husband’s specialty of ‘Birthday Number Pancakes’, which we have blogged about many times. But this time, I had plans. I really wanted to make French Toast, and just like the kind I had had so many times growing up, at a particular restaurant. The crazy thing is, I cannot for the life of me (yet) remember, what restaurant that was! It’s one of those questions I’d love to ask my Mom, but can’t. : ( I know she would know. I have searched
It’s a wonder, that our children have not turned into cucumbers, this summer. They love them, and our gardens have been so generous with them, that the kids have happily eaten them many days for lunch, dinner, and sometimes even as a snack. They’ve had them as spears, sliced the long way and added to their tomato sandwiches, chopped up in a garden salad, and as this Cucumber Salad, which we are sharing with you today.
We know. It’s not the most inventive recipe, if we can even call it that. The ‘recipe’ is actually more about the dressing it’s in. It’s one that I
I don’t remember exactly the last time I had a frozen chocolate covered banana, but I do know that I had one or 2 when I was a kid, and I loved them. I thought of making them many times since I’ve had kids of my own, but never quite got to that. So when a reader linked us up with this simple recipe for ‘Frozen Banana Bites’, I knew we had to try them. Not exactly the same as frozen chocolate covered bananas, but close enough. They were absolutely delectable!
*The actual recipe called for peanut butter, but with one of our kids having
If you live in a climate where summers can be hot & humid, than you probably have days like me when you can’t even think of cooking dinner, in a hot kitchen. You’re looking for a meal that is cool, light, and delicious. We probably all have our regular stand-bys, but I just discovered a new favorite, and I’m here to share it with you!
One of the best parts of having link-up party on Tuesdays, has not only been the simple home decor or craft ideas, but the recipes shared! This ’7 Layer Salad’ was a link-up, and I thought it was so enticing, we made it right
I was brainstorming about a good dessert to have for Father’s Day coming up,
when I came up with this idea: A Camp Site Eclair Dessert.
I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe with you yet, because it is definitely a family favorite!

Josh’s Double Chocolate Biscotti
Definition of BISCOTTO: a crisp cookie or biscuit of Italian origin that is flavored usually with anise and filberts or almonds —usually used in plural
A good friend of ours baked our family these biscottis, and we enjoyed them so much, we asked him for the recipe. (So we could have some more!). He very kindly sent the recipe to us, and he also suggested it as a Vittles post. We thought it was a great idea! It’s just not
There are times that the things we creatively do as a family, or the ideas we have, happen ON a holiday or special calendar day. So naturally they do not get blogged until after the fact. Since we like our readers to have the opportunity to take our ideas and find creative inspiration from them, or flat out borrow the ideas, I like to try and share (or re-share) those ideas the following year, so that you all can have time to use them if you’d like, while that day is upcoming once again.
Here in the Vittles section, I thought it would be
Not much says a down-home-cooked meal, like a homemade Chicken Pot Pie! Growing up, my mom always bought those little individual frozen pot pies, in either chicken or beef. And guess what? I loved them! She was not all that into cooking, as I’ve said, so I don’t think I had very discerning taste as a kid.
When I grew up and started my own family, those little frozen pot pies always sounded good, but I found the actual experience of eating them, was less than satisfying. I found the little meat bits in those pies….suspicious. I also found the individual
