These candied pecans are so quick and easy to throw together and are great for adding to salads or just to munch on! I always have several before they can make it to my salad. We loved them in our Pomegranate Pear Salad with Orange Vinaigrette Dressing.
If you don’t know what goulash is you are missing out! This was a family favorite growing up. I grew up with four brothers and we all gobbled this up. My kids LOVE goulash and are always happy when I make it, which is at least twice a month! This Instant Pot Goulash is simple to throw together and the flavors come together wonderfully in the Instant Pot. If you don’t have an instant pot, you can definitely make this on the stove top.

These framed pin cushions are so dang adorable, inexpensive and easy to put together. I made one a few years ago for my Mom for her birthday and she still loves it! She is an INCREDIBLE seamstress and I just knew that having a BIG, easy to find pin cushion would be useful to her. I made hers in an ornate 5×7 frame painted navy blue with a sweet floral print and matching navy button in the center. Right now I am working on making a TON of framed pin cushions for a craft show I am doing soon. I am selling furniture and decor at the show but wanted something inexpensive and cute for people to buy for themselves or for gifts.
Items you will need to make your own FRAMED PIN CUSHION:
- small frame
- sand paper, optional
- hot glue
- button, optional
- large needle and thread
I like to keep everything nice, clean and organized as I work. 😉

I always look at yard sales and thrift stores for frames. I was feeling pretty great about a few I got last weekend at a yard sale for a dollar or two. Then today I found some as cheap as 20 cents at a thrift store! SCORE!!! The largest ones I used for this project are 5×7 and I found some cute little ones as well!
THIS GRANDMA OF MINE IS THE BEST COOK EVER!
This PEA ‘n PEANUT SALAD came from her. Five years ago she came to stay with me for a week and I helped her put together a cookbook with all her BEST recipes. She gave a copy to all her kids and grandkids for Christmas several years ago. It took a lot of time and effort but was so worth it. I CHERISH THIS BOOK! This PEA ‘n PEANUT SALAD was the first recipe I tried from the cookbook because it was something different, sounded delicious and looked like I couldn’t mess it up. I was right! It was easy to throw together and so tasty. I took it to a BBQ with friends and was asked for the recipe several times.
Raise your hand if you love fresh berry pie!
I made this Black and Blueberry Pie for Ike’s birthday this week. Blueberry pie is his FAVORITE dessert and I try to make it for him for special occasions. My parents have AMAZING blackberries and they shared a bunch with us on our recent trip to Utah. They were the perfect addition to this yummy pie! Lemon and cinnamon in the filling makes it bright and delicious. If you want to show someone you really love them, make this Black and Blueberry pie!

This is kind of a copy cat recipe for Abuelos pork tenderloin. We used boneless grilled pork chops here, but the marinade is where the magic is. So…use it however you like…but you need this marinade/sauce in your life. When we lived in Texas and were blessed to be able to eat at Abuelos, my husband almost always ordered the pork tenderloin. We were excited when we found a similar recipe to make at home.
