Trying to live life with a little bit of grace and dignity. Never too proud to laugh at myself, either. :) I'm 53 years old and I've been married for 34 years. We have three great children, although they're not babies anymore, as our youngest is 27! We also have gained 2 sons-in-law and a grandson in the past 9 years, as well as 3 precious grands! :) Even though I am now disabled and home almost all of the time, cooking on weeknights is still rarely planned. I guess I thrive of cooking on the fly ... LOL!

Power-Packed Fruit Smoothie

I came up with this concoction knowing that I wasn't getting nearly enough protein in on a daily basis. Of course, fresh fruit can be used, but I encourage you to freeze the fresh fruit prior to making this smoothie, as ice will water down the yumminess of this wonderfully healthy drink.

MamaMarcie's Quicky Quiche

This is a combination of two different quiche recipes I've used in my 33 years of marriage, and I've tweaked it into my own semi-homemade creation. My family absolutely loves it, and I hope yours does, too!

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Vegetable Soup

I was down to a few basic staples and some hamburger in the house, so decided to throw it all together, and this is the result. It's so good to have for supper with hot, toasted French bread on a cold fall or winter evening! This can also be made on the stovetop if you're in a hurry after a busy day.

Cheese Log

A blend of green pepper and pineapple give this cheese log its wonderful, unique taste.
