This quick and easy tapioca pudding was the result of a baaad craving. You know me – I get a craving… I must have it! When I was little, tapioca pudding was my absolute favorite, but the boys are not pudding fans. It’s a texture thing?! But I wanted it, and Chris really likes it […]

Beef Stroganoff

Growing up, beef stroganoff was a meal my Mom use to make us, but it was a meal I didn’t learn to appreciate until I was older. Now, it’s one of my favorites. This recipe takes a little from my Mom’s recipe as well as some input from my Auntie Jo. My Mom uses wine, […]
