All The Buzz

Last night we had a wonderful night with ladies in our women's church group. The theme was 'Bee Anxiously Engaged' based on an LDS General Conference talk by M. Russell Ballard (here). The summary of his talk: Great things are brought about and burdens are lightened through the efforts of many hands “anxiously engaged in a good cause.” My mother-in-law, who is better than an internet search on any subject, came and spoke about bee keeping and the lives of bees. If you've never really heard or learned about bees, I highly recommend finding some kind National Geographic or Planet Earth [...]

New Food Faves In The Bradford Home

Things are a little crazy in the land of Bradford. On top of that it's been super hot--until yesterday…thank heavens! We're talking several days of temps over 100. And thats not normal for end of June, first of July. That's usually end of  July, first of August weather. So we've been looking for some great recipes that don't involve a whole heck-uv-a-lotta cooking or using the oven. Here's what we've added to our list of faves here in our neck of the woods: One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Veggies Recipe + Photo Credit: Cooking Classy She suggests using asparagus or [...]

Chicken+Wild Rice Soup

A week or two ago I was on a quest for an awesome Chicken+Wild Rice Soup recipe. You may remember me asking about recipes on Facebook. I love that soup and it's so hard to come by. And to top it off, my favorite place to get it on rare occasions, Kneaders, wasn't making it anymore. So sad. So rather than try to find some place that made this most awesome blend of flavors in one great soup, I decided I would search to find my own so I could make it at my own will and savory pleasure. I didn't necessarily [...]

recipe  |  old fashioned apple cake

Well, yesterday was absolutely divine. We had 'First Thanksgiving'. A sort of precursor, if you will, for the big turkey day itself. You know, we just don't get to eat enough turkey dinners and that's what makes it so danged good. I've been craving it for some time now. Just couldn't wait any longer. And in case you are wondering, we are doing some things early this year because Jordan leaves for Florida on December 18. So yes, they decorated their Christmas tree last night after 'First Thanksgiving.' We only did turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes + gravy, rolls and green [...]

slow cooker white bean chicken chili

Goodness gracious me oh my! I made this last night for dinner--for us and for a neighbor that is battling cancer once again. She had two different kinds of breast cancer at the same time and did the whole mastectomy thing along with chemo and radiation. She'd be doing pretty good over the past couple years and now has lung cancer (never smoked). It's completely unrelated to her previous cancer. They removed a lower section of the lobe of her lung. That poor girl. Just breaks my heart that someone so kind and giving as her has to go through [...]

Although it does make a nice glaze on them. :) Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins 3 large bananas mashed3/4 c granulated sugar [...]

recipe | rumbi rice bowls

Okay, I think this by far my most favorite thing I've made recently . . . and I made it twice last week! I got it from favfamilyrecipes.com. Our family is kind of split on our feeling towards broccoli + zucchini, so I just put in a little of both. My favorite is the carrots and celery along with chicken+rice and that sauce! Yum! We also made our rice without beans. I dunno. That thought just seemed to ruin it for me. Also, after researching coconut milk, which really is good in the rice, I found out it's not exactly [...]

more ‘life additions’ | quick dinner idea

check. Did you hear that? I just checked that 'partly done' Life Additions kit off my list! Feels good! It's been sitting there waiting my attention for too long! This kit has some fun little tidbits to work with your Project Life. Some frames, some little doo-dads for the smaller pockets, and my favorite, the file folder pieces! This is something you can add to your journaling card or just use the file folder to put directly in the slot. But wait, there's more! There are titles you can add to it . . . or even just add them [...]
