We love Ore-Ida products and this isn’t the first time we’ve eaten them and been happy with the outcome. I love that Ore-Ida uses 100 percent real potatoes that are already scrubbed, peeled, chopped, and ready to steam and mash. I love the taste of Ore-Ida products and you’ll frequently find their products in our […]...

Last night, I made yummy Coho Salmon! We have neighbors that own a fishing company and we bought some salmon from them and their last trip. It was a pound of Coho Salmon and was really good! I can’t believe how simple and yummy it was!  Even my boys loved it.  I kind of wish […]...

We recently made pancakes using our Stainless Steel Pans. Before pouring the pancake mix on the pan, we sprayed it with oil. The oil, unfortunately, left behind a sticky and yucky residue. I tried soaking it, but no luck. My husband had the idea to use Bar Keeper’s Friend. See what happened!...

I recently had the opportunity to review a Cooking Journal in Avocado, as part of the “Write It Down” Series from Journals Unlimited, Inc.  I love it!!  I have been using it since I first received it.  Have you ever made a recipe, loved the way it tasted, and then forgotten the ingredients or portions […]...

So, I want to apologize for not posting recipes every day this month.  I made a few recipes that I wouldn’t wish upon anybody to try (we ate out or ate leftovers on those days), but I’m going to post the Mexican recipes as I use them for the rest of the month.  I’m even […]...

I LOVE Wilton Products! As a family of 5 living on one income, it can be challenging to purchase store bought cupcakes and cakes for birthday parties, school events, and church events. Plus, it just doesn’t taste as good as homemade cupcakes, cookies, and cakes! This is where Wilton comes in. You can purchase tools […]...

I had the opportunity to watch an interesting video about canned food – how it goes from field to home. This video was brought to us by Mealtime.org and the Canned Food Channel’s Alliance. Many of us use canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned meats, canned juices, and more! I found it interesting that a farmer […]...

OK, so this isn’t a genuine Mexican dish, but I would classify this recipe under the Mexican Recipe Category.  There have been a few days this month where we had Mexican food leftovers, went on a date, or had food from the Taco Truck.  So, I’m filling in a few of my recipes with some […]...

We are continuing with our month of Mexican food on The Mommy-Files.  We have had a Mexican dish of some sort almost every day so far this month.  I’ve switched it up for the kids a few times, including DiGiorno Pizza, Spaghetti, and yes…classic Mac & Cheese.  But I’ve found that they really love plain […]...

This is one of my favorite dishes! Last week, things got a little chaotic and we actually ate from the Taco Truck a couple of times. It is so good, if you order the right things – lol! I ordered a Torta (recipe to come), the boys ate Quesadillas, and George ordered Tacos. So, here […]...
