My husband grew up on a ranch and eating a big breakfast before the day begins on the ranch. I really enjoy making this Ranch House Breakfast Bake for him before he begins his day of work in the cottage gardens.This Breakfast Bake is light, fluffy and full of flavors that you would expect to find on the ranch. I recently made this recipe for him and his friends for a weekend breakfast right before they were heading out for a hard days work on the golf course, oops, did I say work?

I love making a special dessert for my Husband or just making an old favorite just for him. I am very blessed because my Guy is not a picky eater and will generally love whatever I set in front of him, but he sure does have his favorites. Of course on special occasions I love to pamper him and then the most fun is just to make it his special day, just because he is such a special guy! I am excited to share with you 10 of his all time favorites.

What a fun week ahead, how many times do we have 3 big events in one week. This week we have Super Bowl Sunday, Chinese New Year and Mardi Gras all in one week, wow! It is fun to make a food plan for such a busy week and enjoy the different ethic foods that make life interesting. It has been a tradition in our family that we try and have a special meal that represents that holiday. Our kids always looked forward to the surprises and they still do. We have some favorite recipes that are always a family request for certain holidays and be sure several have already made their request. I really can't wait to get started on this week and am very excited that you are here to help me.

Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather
It's official now, Full Plate Thursday has just passed the Five Year mark. Wow, it is hard to believe that we have posted this party 260 times and now we are posting number 261. When I started Full Plate Thursday one of my goals was to show up every week at the same time and with Gods help and your encouragement I have been able to do that. Another goal was to leave a comment with each of you who would come to the party, and although the blogging community has moved away from that protocol, I still try to visit as many of you as I can, I love visiting all of your wonderful blogs. I want to thank each of you for your faithful participation, support, friendship and blog love through these years. YOU are Full Plate Thursday and without YOUR fabulous food we would not have the wonderful party that we have today. From the bottom of my heart Thank YOU So Much, ya'll are so special to me, love and hugs to all!

From Garden To Table
We are coming to the end of our winter garden and the cold bins that we keep our potatoes, onions, and squash are getting down very low. This is about the time I really try to use those things up because the spring garden vegetables will be coming on very soon. Today I am using a Butternut Squash from the cold bin and I gathered some Turnips Greens and Collards to make this wonderful Roasted Butternut and Greens into a lovely Gratin. Winter Greens and Roasted Vegetables combined in a well seasoned gratin, a delicious main or side dish.
We love this recipe and sure hope that you enjoy it!

The Super Bowl 2016 is just around the corner and we are co-hosting a party with some friends. Our team (Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs) did not make it this year, but we will all have so much fun watching some other team win this year. One of the fun things about a Super Bowl Party is the food and our party will have lots of wonderful food. These are just a few dishes that we may have at our party and some great ideas for your party. Let's have fun and may the best team win!

When I looked at the calendar I thought how can this be January is almost over. We had a busy week here at the cottage with a little break in the weather we were able to get the rest of our spring onions planted, with a little help from Max. I stewed a couple of chickens from the freezer yesterday so look what we are doing with them on the menu this week.
