Honey Lime Enchiladas

A guaranteed hit at my house is any type of Mexican dish. The kids love slightly spicy foods, and Mexican fits the bill nicely. One of our family favorites is Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas. The combination of honey and lime is delicious! While I generally make this recipe using the mild green enchilada sauce, I do like kicking it up a notch with medium heat sauce from time to time. Be sure and taste as ingredients are mixed. If you {Read More}

Freeze Now for Huge Fall Savings

Fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes, sweet peppers, corn, and okra are among my favorite veggies. Right now they are in plentiful supply, but come October those $1.25-larger-than-my-hand sweet red peppers shoot up to a whopping $3.99 each! Forget tomatoes in the fall and winter–they may be reasonably priced, but they lack any kind of flavor. Take advantage of summer vegetables and fruit  now while in season, and stock your freezer for fall and winter months. The savings will be substantial and, as for {Read More}
