White Wine Ice Cream for an @GalloFamily #SundaySupper

Compensation was provided by Gallo Family Vineyards via Sunday Supper, LLC. The opinions expressed herein are those of the author, and are not indicative of the opinions or positions of Gallo Family Vineyards.



I was so excited to be chosen to participate in this week’s Sunday Supper with Gallo Family Vineyards. Not just because I love their wine and love coming up with ways to enjoy it in or with my recipes, but because I was going to get the opportunity to try their newest wine, a fabulous Riesling.

I also received a bottle of their Sweet Red. The Sweet Red is a smooth wine with the flavor of dark red fruits. It pairs wonderfully with all of the smoked meats we have been cooking up lately.

Do you remember what you dream about? Are your dreams vivid? I know a lot of people actually keep dream diaries so they can write down what they dream about as soon as they wake up.

Me? 

I dream in HD, Hi Def, and Smellovision!

Grilled Baby Romaine Lettuce with Parmesan Vinaigrette



I tend to be a it slow at times. I see things, or trends, that interest me but I drag my feet about trying them, for whatever reason. 

Maybe it is Mr Picky that I live with? Ya, let's use that excuse. 

Sometimes I just see something that makes me go "Oooh", but figure he will think it is strange. Why this even crosses my mind I have no idea. As I have said in the past, 99.9% of the time he likes what I make and he has never refused to eat something that I have put in front of him. But sometimes just getting that "look" irks the crap out of me and my evil twin wants to pop him right in the head......that evil twin, she can be crazy I tell ya!!

Fudge Brownies #SecretRecipeClub



I am so excited to be back with the Secret Recipe Club gang! With so much going on in my life I had to back away for a few months, but I always missed everyone. It is so exciting to be given a new blog every month, and then scouring through it to find just the right recipe to make. I love being able to find things that I might never think of making.

Make Ahead Waffle Casserole for Back to School #SundaySupper



This weeks Sunday Supper is all about Back to School, and even though my kids are grown, I can completely understand wanting some quick and easy breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners. 

With me working at home, and Kevin working nights, I tend to lose all track of time. So sometimes meals get completely forgotten about (yes I, a food blogger, forget meals), and by the time I realize it is time to make something I am at a loss for a quick meal. I will admit I used to keep some of the boxed foods in the cabinet for just those times, but I have gotten much better about keeping things in my pantry that are quick and healthy. 



Breakfast always seemed to give me trouble when my kids were at home. I hated just giving them cereal, but the last thing I wanted to do at OMG 30 in the morning was cook. Then I discovered make ahead breakfast casseroles and the skies parted and the angels sang.

OK maybe that was a bit of an exaggeration.

I did do a happy dance though!

I just threw the casserole together as I was making dinner, I mean it is no big deal to cook up some bacon, ham, or sausage while you are already cooking right? Then get everything into the casserole dish and get it into the fridge for the next morning. Wake the kiddos, pop the casserole into the oven, and you are rockin' and rollin'!

The best part of make ahead breakfast casseroles, minus the whole make ahead deal, is that my kids loved them and were so excited to see the different variations I would come up with. A couple of them are Make Ahead Sausage Breakfast Casserole, and Make Ahead Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole Really there is no wrong way to make this. Pick a bread, meat, cheese, and eggs....BOOM breakfast!!
