1) Don’t order filet mignon or pasta primavera at Waffle House. It’s just a diner. They serve breakfast 24 hours a day. Let them cook something they know. If you confuse them, they’ll kick your…

Homemade Crispy Fries

The Homemade Crispy Fries recipe is similar to the potato wedges/Jo-Jos that you can buy in delis and convenience stores. Because they are oven-cooked instead of deep-fried, they are even healthier.

Easy Crock-Pot French Dip

French dip sandwiches are one of my all-time favorite dinners and lunches, snacks, you name it. I can still remember the first time my mom served them. As you know, finger food is the best kid food! This is an extremely tasty recipe that I’ve fallen in love with. We usually eat them with my nummy home-made crispy fries.

My Bucket List

Whether people have actually written a bucket list down or not, I think most have one in their heads. At some point, most of us have said that we were going to do something before we died. Although, I doubt I’ll do most of these because of money, I can always dream – which is something I’m really good at.

Mom’s Enchiladas

This is one of my favorite dinners. If I start to think about it.. I HAVE to HAVE it. Even my picky teen-ager loves it. Serve it with Mexican/Spanish rice and re-fried beans. It couldn’t be any easier to make. You can make it as spicy as you wish and it’s cinch to add ingredients to it.

French Lick is located in the southern portion of Indiana and is the hometown of basketball legend Larry Bird. It has major small town charm.

We drove a little over 1.5 hours to arrive in French Lick. During our drive we passed bucolic country scenery, farms aplenty and charming historic homes. This area is also home to an Amish community, caves and a beautiful lake.Continue reading
