Smoked Potato Salad

Smoked Potato Salad

A few weeks ago, we had a belated Father’s Day celebration with hubs’ family. Hubs smoked a brisket, so potato salad seemed like a natural fit. We also made some easy roasted broccoli for something green. But, the potato salad was a pretty big hit…probably […]

Easy Garlic Bread

This year, we were so excited to finally put in a garden. We were looking for a house in the spring last year, so we only had a few potted plants. We put in raised beds with a fence around everything. One bed is entirely […]

Easy Skillet Green Beans
