Eggless Lemon Curd

Wednesday, March 23, 2016
This filling is the perfect solution to getting that lemon fix without eggs in it.

Eggless lemon curd can be used for filling cakes, pies, cookies and more!

This makes great gifts in mason jars and also freezes perfectly for later uses. Best of all, it keeps in the refrigerator a lot longer without eggs in it so you don't have to worry about spoilage!


Leftover Venison Stew Pot Pie Recipe

Friday, March 18, 2016
In my collection of Venison recipes, I decided to try a pot pie with the leftovers. The venison pot pie was a huge hit. The crust, filling, and ease of this recipe will win your hunter's heart for sure. I have a great collection of Venison recipe links you can try below. The pot pie is such a delicious addition. It was made with a wonderful old fashioned stew recipe and a hunter would swoon over this delicious meal along with your pot pie fans!

Guinness Irish Recipes and More

Wednesday, March 16, 2016
Any meats made with Guinness tenderizes them, the beer is also amazing in so many desserts and of course a great Irish beer to drink!

Through the years and holidays, I have tested and tried many beers and always come back to Guinness Beer for the flavor and best results.

These are some of the recipes I made for St. Patrick's Day to celebrate the Patron Saint Frances.

We have a special love for Slow Cooker Guinness Corned Beef and if there happen to be any leftovers, we make some simple Reuben sandwiches.

Each recipe is delightful in taste and I am sure there is something for everyone to try below.

Even if you're not Irish you can be for a day making some of the delicious recipes made with beer.

Deviled Eggs

Sunday, March 13, 2016
I just love Deviled Eggs.

I really make them all year long, however, it's a must to repurpose Easter colored eggs that are leftover.

We usually have leftover hard-boiled eggs from Easter bread to use up also.

Here is an easy Deviled egg recipe that literally flies off the plate when I make them. Everyone loves them.

Ditalini with Pork and Peas

Saturday, March 12, 2016
This is Italian comfort food at its finest. I remember growing up having this many times during the month.

Money was tight and this fed many. We still love it. Sop this up that Italian bread and you have a fabulous meal in one pot!

Really old fashioned Italian style food right here.

Comfort food, especially in the cooler months.

My grandmother would make this with the leftover Sunday tomato sauce during the weekdays.

If there was beef left then she would use that meat, sometimes even sausage or meatballs.

Whatever was leftover in the Sunday sauce was much time added to this dish, meat wise.

This is an easy meal to feed a large family very economically.
