Today I’m posting the recipe I use for making rolled sugar cookies. I have used many different recipes, but this one is far and away the best. The flavor is not too sweet, and not too flour-y. To me, they are just right. Hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do! 😀 This recipe…… Continue reading Perfect Sugar Cookies
I found myself with a pack of chicken wings on my hands that were expiring on the same day, but I wasn’t in the mood for wings. So, instead of letting them go to waste, I decided to make some homemade chicken stock to freeze for use at a later date! I plan to use…… Continue reading Homemade Chicken Stock

Today I’m posting how I made Dusted Chipotle BBQ Wings (Quaker Steak & Lube style), but you could use any flavor. I ordered the sauce and seasoning shaker from their website, but I’m not trying to plug them, so you could use any BBQ sauce and/or seasoning. Please note that I will usually not be…… Continue reading Quaker Steak & Lube Chicken Wings
There are few things in life that I love more than Mexican restaurant-style salsa. The Mexican restaurant near our old apartment in Glasgow served the best salsa I’ve ever had, and I experimented for months trying to find the perfect combination of flavors. I really started to panic when I realized we would be moving…… Continue reading Salsa!
