Recipe for Easy Chicken Fajitas

Lately, Rob and I have been eating chicken fajitas like nobody's business. They're easy to make, taste good and are pretty healthy.

I've blogged before about making fajitas from leftover steak. This version is similar but calls for fresh boneless, skinless chicken breast. So, I figured they deserved their own post.

Card-catalog longing a reminder to be happy with what I have

A while back, I wrote a blog post about antiques I'd buy if I could only find them - even if it took some finangling to figure out where to put them in our tiny house.

Working on a colorful stitch-sampler crochet baby blanket

I usually try not to blog about homemade gifts before they're delivered to the intended recipient, but I'm making a baby blanket I love so much, I can't resist.

Using galvanized tubs as planters

I turned my calendar to April yesterday morning, but am still wearing my winter coat to work.

The cold temperatures can't keep me down though, because Pinterest has me looking at oodles of adorable galvanized tubs serving as planters and other pieces of garden art.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Vital wheat gluten and how I use it in baking

Yesterday, after writing about half whole-wheat pretzel rolls, a coworker called me with the question: "What's vital wheat gluten?"

I thought I'd blogged about it before, but it turns out, I've just mentioned it a lot.

How I made half whole-wheat pretzel rolls

I bought pretzel salt a few months ago and had big dreams of making all sorts of soft pretzel creations with it.

I always feel slightly guilty when making all-white-flour baked goods, though, so I made one batch and then put my pretzel salt away.

How to make these gorgeous fabric pomanders - perfect for pew decorations for a wedding

My best friend, Samantha Schwartz Greiff, got married a few weeks ago. In the weeks preceeding the wedding, I helped in the best way I knew how: by showing up with my glue gun.

Recipe for Sausage and Cabbage One-Pot Dinner

Like so many others I've created, I came up with this recipe out of a desire to cook, but not necessarily grocery shop first.

This weekend, I swore I'd use that head of cabbage in our fridge. I thought I'd cook it up with some smoked sausage but couldn't find the package I could have sworn in was in the freezer. Instead, I pulled out a roll of regular pork sausage and went from there.

Recipe for Snowed-In Snack Mix

I created this recipe when Rob and I got snowed in a couple winters ago, shortly after we got married.

I submitted this recipe to Gooseberry Patch, my favorite cookbook company, and they published it in a cookbook called "The Christmas Table."

Recipe for Ranch Chicken Enchiladas

Here's a recipe that ran in my column yesterday for Ranch Chicken Enchiladas. It's from Ann Nogle of Savoy.
