A declaration from the Ranch. This is, in fact, our new favorite pasta casserole. We loved it so much that I found myself feeling anxious while waiting to tell you about it. Jumbo Shells! How long has it been since you’ve cooked with those big graceful shells? Aren’t they fun? They’re easy to cook. Easy
Our non-stop craving for soup continues. We’re currently living in typical Colorado January weather.

Deviled Ham Canape Appetizer Recipe. Easy-Peasy and a flavorful bite-sized treat from Tweet. Before Christmas a group of ladies in the neighborhood arranged reservations for high tea at Cherokee Castle just a few miles south of Highlands Ranch.

Cream Cheese and a Can of Chili. Yes, easiest appetizer recipe ever. And very tasty! After spending hours preparing and arranging food this December, on this Monday before Christmas, I can actually say that I’m feeling “cooked out”.
