Green Chili Vegetable Enchiladas

Our family loves this recipe and is a great dish for a meatless meal. Our Green Chili Vegetable Enchiladas are full of Tex Mex flavor and take no time to get them on the table. I have also used the filling for these Enchiladas in a casserole and it is delicious. Once baked these Enchiladas can be frozen for up to 3 months, a great dish of Enchiladas right out of the freezer for a busy day.

Strawberry Dessert Chalupa

I wanted to create a new Tex Mex dessert for some upcoming Mexican themed parties. Of course my official taster is my husband and he says this is his new favorite and I agree, it is delicious. This is a recipe that you can prepare all the ingredients ahead of time then put it together right before you serve. These flavors are amazing with a creamy filling and a crunchy base, to serve one or a crowd.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 4-22-18

When I make my meal plans one of the first things I check is the weather, especially in the spring when we have so many storms. We love to cook outdoors but the weather does not always cooperate with our plans. This week looks like I will have to bring my grilling indoors for just a little longer. Sometimes I notice folks walking up and down the supermarket isles saying Whats For Dinner, I hope that is not you and we can inspire you somehow to start making meal plans.

Texas Wild Flower Chest

Some years ago we had house guest just about every weekend during the water sport season. When you live at the lake folks just love to come see you. Although we had plenty of space for sleeping, I found we needed a special space for the weekenders to have a space for their personal items that would be out of the way. That's when I had the idea of the chest and a different drawer for each person. I started with a raw wood chest and the project had it's own life  after that. It was such a rewarding project that is still enjoyed to this day.

Old Fashioned Carrot Cake

I was walking from the garden to the house the other day with handful of fresh carrots that I had just pulled from the garden and I thought about my Aunt and her love of carrots. She loved carrots and made the most delicious Carrot Cake so I decided to make an updated version of my Aunts Carrot Cake. Our family loves this cake and it never last very long. This recipe is very rich and moist with great flavors.
