Tater Tot Casserole

By Thursday, March 10, 2016

Remember back when I blogged about my hoarding problem? Well, almost three years later... I have news. I'm not a hoarder anymore! I'm the opposite - a minimalist! It all started when I read Marie Kondo's book. I went through my clothes and chucked tons of stuff. Then ...

Loaded Supper Nachos

By Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Bacon, Mushroom & Swiss Chard Linguine

By Wednesday, June 10, 2015
