Hi all!

Are you into the full swing of your New Years Resolution? Are you keeping to them?

One of my goals (not resolutions) is to try to blog more and to make more videos and post more recipes. Its very challenging with MN weather where it gets dark by 5pm. I literally get to work in the dark and get home when its dark. That leaves little to no time to take pictures.

As you can see in this video I ran out of light towards the end as well. But I did promise to share this video with you a month ago. It looks time consuming but if you gather your ingredients and try to go in order its actually not bad.

And this is one of those that you can prepare ahead of time and bake the next day. This Rigatoni pie was so delicious though. The red meat sauce you can use on anything! If you have any left over, you can serve it over the pie and its breadsticks.

Remember if you like this video Subscribe to my YouTube Channel and give it a thumbs up. Thats how I know you like what you see. And that will inspire me to make more.

Can you believe its already 2018! I rang in my New year with a bang! Like major partying. I made dinner (one of which was those rolls) and played some Yahtzee and totally kicked someone’s butt and he got so jealous because he thought he was the king of Yahtzee, especially since it was my first time playing ever!

Then I patiently waited for 2018 and promptly went to bed! I told yah…I celebrated in full force. It was way too cold to go out anywhere. We had been in the minus range for a few days and still is, so I definitely was not leaving my warm house.

Everyone will be at the gym for the next 2-3 weeks, trying to lose weight, while I am here showing you a fully loaded carb recipe. I am not making any resolutions because honestly I never stick with it. I started a 4 day juice fast and I am on my 3rd day right now.

I don’t want to divulge too much as I plan on sharing my plan and what I did during those four days, but I do want to say…I have literally started to fantasize about food. Not gonna lie.  Juicing is tough as heck. I don’t believe anyone who says you get adjusted and a burst of energy on the 3rd or 4th day. All lies, according to my tummy that has been rumbling like thunder the last 3 days.

That makes it all the more hard to be sharing this gorgeous looking Dinner Roll recipe with you today. I just want to dive into my computer and take a big bite. I feel like I could still smell it baking in my oven, slathering on soft butter and eating it with melted cheese and homemade ham!

OMG…my tummy is rumbling like thunder I said!

I made this Dinner Roll recipe 4 times over the holidays, just trying to perfect this recipe. If you follow the video and the recipe you should not have any problems. What I noticed is that one time I added literally 1 tablespoon of flour more and that caused the rolls to be a little more heavy. I prefer mine to be light and fluffy.

As usual if you liked this video stop on by my Youtube Channel and give it a thumbs up and subscribe.

Chat with you after I make it though this 4-day juice fast.

With just 14 days to Christmas, people scrambling everywhere to finish their Christmas shopping, going to their office parties, trying to throw their own parties and I am here chowing down on this awesome Rigatoni Pie! Oh year, I said Pie.

Its not the pie you are thinking of though, this pie did take some patience to put together, but it was well worth it. Layered with a white sauce and topped off with a red meat sauce, sprinkled with cheese melting…what is not to like about that!

If you are looking for something to WAW your guests for your Christmas dinner, this is the dish to do it with! Just think about bringing it to the dinner table, removing the round sides from the baking pan and TA -DAH! You have this fashionable…yes I said fashionable pasta dish filled with ricotta and ground beef…Think about the Oooohs and the Ahhhhhs you will get.

I did make a video of how I did this, but I will post that on my Youtube Channel later on.

So head on over there to check that out.

Hi there! Welcome back.

Last weekend I had the most excited pleasure of baby sitting my little cousin. He is 18 months old and to me that is the perfect age! I wish I can keep him at that age forever because they do eventually grow up into moody teenagers staring at their phones 23 hours a day.

He is at that age where he is now learning to say words and he is still waddling around on unsteady legs. While my monster was into dora and sponge bob, my cousin is into Elmo. So I spent the last 3 nights watching every episode of Elmo ever made! Brings back memories of when the monster was younger and we had to sit through hours of sponge bob one Christmas Day! I do not miss that at all and don’t want another repeat of that.

Even though we have Thanksgiving well behind us, every time we open the fridge there is all that left over turkey staring at us saying eat me. Yet your tummy is like…not the same old turkey again! Well I have just the solution for that. I made this Turkey Veggie Noodle Stir fry and used up my left over turkey with just veggies I had on hand in my fridge.

This is a great way to clear out the fridge and to use up left overs without wasting it. After all we must get ready for Christmas.

Oh and guess what? I made a video of that too! Yup I sure did.

Did you survive your Thanksgiving Holiday? Did you venture out into the Black Friday abyss of chaos?

I managed to survive two Thanksgiving holidays this year. The first being mine and the second with the Kubes family.

I am going to show you my two turkeys that I did this year. I am really hoping to actually share this recipe sometime in the future. But there is only so much turkey I can eat! Especially since I don’t even like turkey.

The first Turkey is baked and the second is deep fried. Both tasted fantastic and they were both juicy. However we ate most of the fried turkey before we even sat down to dinner. So I am going to go out on a limb and say that was our first choice.

And honestly after eating all that Thanksgiving food I just wanted something normal to cleanse the palette. I had a sudden craving for Beef Chow Fun! NOT to be mistaken for pad Thai.

This Beef Chow Fun is usually served with white sticky rice, but I added in wide noodles and it was fantastic. I wanted to share this with someone who loves Thai Food and drove all that way to deliver it while it was hot, but I was greeted instead with a Crabby Pants! So no more Thai Food for him.

But if you like Beef Fun Chow when you go to the restaurant, here is your chance of making it at home! And I even made a video for you, how sweet is that.
