Many people have told me that I make the best scrambled eggs recipe. Recently my husband was making himself a scrambled egg sandwich and asked me how I make my eggs taste so good. I had never really thought about my eggs being any different than your standard run of the mill scrambled eggs.How Are These Eggs Better? So - I asked my husband what was different about MY eggs vs other people's eggs. He said that they were simple and most importantly they were the perfect consistency. . . .
I have to admit, when I first heard about yogurt making I shunned the idea. Why would I spend 16 hours creating yogurt at home when I can easily purchase it at the store? Then one day, I just decided to go for it. I had read many people's experiences in various forums and decided I needed to give it a try, even if I didn't know if it would turn out. I went with the cold start yogurt method because it seemed the least painful. To my surprise - it did work! And it was creamy and delicious and . . .
I get a lot of questions about what kind of camera or lens I use to take my food pictures, so I thought I'd spill the beans about what is in my camera bag. My wish list is longer than my arm, but these are my go-to's.1. Camera Body When it comes to a camera body all of us here at Oh So use a Cannon 70D or 80D. The camera has some really nice features including wifi, a touch screen, and really great video quality.Canon EOS 80D Digital SLR Camera 2. Lenses As far as lenses, I . . .
Around my house we take Halloween pretty seriously. We have more Halloween decorations than Christmas, we start planning costumes in July, and we always have a big adult Halloween party. We really look forward to some rare alone time with our friends sans kids. It gives us a chance to laugh and talk without being interupted and allows us to have tons and tons of fun!My husband and I have been throwing this party for about 11 years - so we have this down to a science! I want to share a . . .
We've shown you how to make a mean turkey, creamy mashed potatoes and now you need the rich gravy to compliment both. Making gravy is incredibly simple and fast. There are many ways to make a creamy gravy, but for this post I'll focus on making gravy from turkey drippings. Just what would be expected at a Thanksgiving dinner!In my family we grew up on Sunday pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy and homemade rolls. The gravy was always my favorite part. Well maybe the rolls were but the . . .
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving with out mashed potatoes. The turkey is of course the star, but mashed potatoes play a quiet and important role of best supporting actor. I mean really, with out the mashed potatoes what would you make gravy volcanos with? What would those fully rolls or turkey be dipped in? With out those creamy potatoes, a Thanksgiving feast just wouldn't be the same. So today I'm going to show you have to make some bomb mashed potatoes. They are so easy! Really, it is hard to . . .
The Rotisserie Chicken is one of my secret weapons! I use them as a shortcut to creating delicious meals without cooking a chicken. I love to eat one of these for dinner with a side salad, but I love them even more as an ingredient in a delicious recipe. The meat is perfect for soups, casseroles, enchiladas, salads and more! My Costco sells them for $4.99 - and they are so good! They are moist, they are flavorful, and cooked PERFECTLY. When I make a Costco run I buy 2 or 3 along with . . .

Who else buys those applesauce squeeze-packs in bulk from Costco? My kid loves them, and I love that he's basically eating an apple while I'm grocery shopping, driving, at church, or this past weekend, at the lake. What I don't love (well, more what my husband doesn't love) is the cost of those things. And when you really start to think about it, it's quite a bit of environmental waste for something you could be reusing.Enter Laura, our Healthy Mama this week. She and her husband came up . . .
There are few things I enjoy more than a perfectly grilled steak. I love grilled meals period. Fast, tasty, and easy! My husband and I use a gas grill. We started off with charcoal, but converted to gas because of the convenience. No pre-heating, no waiting, just turn it on and go.Another thing I love about grilling is it give the family a chance to hang out outside while dinner is being cooked. Here's my oldest little goofball cruising' the patio in his cozy coupe after church while . . .
This year getting neighbor gifts out the door turned out to be a challenge...and truth be told they still haven't been delivered. The day after Thanksgiving I gave birth to the my second child - another perfect little boy. He arrived a few weeks early, so all of the last minute items I had planned on doing before his birth either got pushed to the back of the list or simplified. Because I'm sleep deprived and too busy staring at a perfect little baby face - I knew I would never get a . . .
