Smoked Sausage Cabbage and Sprouted Lentil Soup

It was a cold and dreary day here yesterday. The kind of day that just begs for a bowl of hot soup and some homemade Skillet Cornbread. Apparently, my husband was thinking the same thing because that’s what he asked to have for lunch. […]

Quinoa Salmon Cakes with Creamy Dijon Sauce

Quinoa Salmon Cakes

This recipe came about because I didn’t have my usual gluten-free crackers I needed to make my usual salmon patties one night. I did have some quinoa in my pantry though, so I decided to see how well that would work. Turns out, it worked great and we really enjoyed them. […]

One-Pan Mexican Chicken Quinoa

One-Pan Mexican Chicken Quinoa

Hurrah for easy one-pan meals! I made this for the first time last week when I really didn’t feel like cooking. I kind of just threw everything into the skillet and hoped for the best.

The Pioneer Woman Mercantile

Mercantile Exterior

After leaving The Lodge, we drove back into town and headed for The Pioneer Woman Mercantile. I just love neat old downtown areas, and I think it’s so awesome when someone restores the old buildings. […]

Ree Drummond’s Ranch and The Lodge

Tempie in Pioneer Woman Cooks Kitchen

Last week, my husband found out he would have to make a trip up to Oklahoma for business. My immediate thought was “I wonder how close the job site is to The Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile?” Turns out, it was a little over two hours away. Not super close, but close enough for me! […]
