Not My Mother’s Chicken Salad

Not Your Mother's Chicken Salad - sheerheart.org

From leftovers to chicken salad. Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to turn leftovers into a practical meal that doesn’t feel like leftovers. Holidays are great for fun, family and food. But sometimes you find yourself left when a heaping amount of leftovers. Labor day, yes it has almost been two weeks since, and yes, I have been MIA on the blog since, but we’ll discuss that later… Anyhow, on the Sunday of Labor day weekend, we had a cookout. Beef and chicken fajitas, rice, beans, guacamole, homemade…

August Favorites

August Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Whew August was wonderful, and this post is about to be full of my August favorites! Being my birthday month, August is always one to look forward to, even though it marks the endish of summer. Not only did I have many favorite things, but I also had a blast making memories. Whether it was spending the weekends at the lake with family and friends, working and hauling cows from sunup to sundown, or hanging out with the family and “old peeps”, August brought me so much to be thankful…

Weekend Recap – 8.28.2017

Weekend Recap 8.28.2017 - sheerheart.org

It’s time for a little weekend recap action on the blog today. Hurricane Harvey has made its impact across Texas. However, it didn’t impact me quite as much as we thought/hoped for. Nonetheless, I’m sending up my prayers for all affected. As terrible as it has been to see the damage and pain caused, it has also been a beautiful thing to watch people helping others no matter who they are. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see all of these good deeds and efforts publicized for weeks, months and years…

Beef Stir Fry – A Weeknight Dinner

Beef Stir Fry - Weeknight Dinners - sheerheart.org

Beef Stir Fry ended up on my menu a couple of weeks ago after lengthy discussion about our weeknight dinners. As many of you could relate to, I felt like I was in a rut when it came to dinnertime during the week. One can only take baked chicken and veggies for so long! After growing up surrounded by beef cattle, I have always worked it in to my menu more than perhaps the average girl in her 20s. Beef is tasty. And knowing where it came from makes it…

Time to Celebrate: National Ice Cream Month

Time to Celebrate: National Ice Cream Month - sheerheart.org

Hip-hip-hooray, it is National Ice Cream Month! As many of you may know, I not only love ice cream, but I love to make ice cream. Years ago for Christmas or my birthday, I can’t quite remember, I was gifted an ice cream maker. It was one that looked like a wooden bucket that required ice and rock salt to thorough chill the ice cream mixture inside the canister. Needless to say, I wore that sucker out in a year. Being in college, proves the perfect atmosphere for ice cream…

Baking Cookies Like a Pro

Baking Cookies Like a Pro - Tips from sheerheart.org

Baking cookies has never been one of my hobbies per say, that is until lately. Over the last several weeks I have really been busy baking in the kitchen. Although not unusual considering how many desserts he can go through, I have been stepping outside the ole comfort zone and trying my hand at some new recipes. Once I have done a bit more testing, I’ll reveal my thoughts on my new cookbooks I have been breaking in. So far, LOVING them! But during this time, I have come to…

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle Cookies - sheerheart.org

Snickerdoodle cookies, yum. I may not have grown up on snickerdoodles, but I sure have found myself making these often over the few months.Β On top of how great these cookies are, the best thing about this recipe is that you most likely have all of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge. Well maybe not the cream of tartar, but do yourself a favor and the next time you are at the grocery store, buy yourself some so you will be ready! Snickerdoodle Cookies I’m not sure exactly what sparked…

June Favorites

June Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Before I get to my June favorites, I want to wish you a Happy 4th of July!!! Holidays that fall during the middle of the week make work so interesting. I had off this past Friday, but worked Monday and then we have today off. So it has made for a weird week. Actually it has felt like a long vacation. Especially since most of my time has been spent at the lake over the last few days. No better place to be this time of year! June was one…
