My Adventure with Minnesota Pork's Oink Outing My Adventure with Minnesota Pork's Oink Outing By The Realistic Housewife 05/24/12 16:52 I was invited on an Oink Outing for Minnesota Pork. I was really excited - I have been a bit obsessed about pigs lately. I've always wanted a "pet" pig. When I went to the farm to get my chickens, there was a pot belly pig named Gracie. She came when she...
Lemon Cake with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting and Chocolate Espresso Cake with Nutella Frosting: Cake Pops Lemon Cake with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting and Chocolate Espresso Cake with Nutella Frosting: Cake Pops By The Realistic Housewife 05/01/12 01:14 One of my first posts here was a Lemon Berry Cupcake, so it shouldn't be too much of a surprise to you that when I went to make Cake Pops for a Bake Sale that I turned to that same flavor profile. I tweaked it a bit here and there this time, but the key...
Asian-Style Pork Sliders with Slaw Asian-Style Pork Sliders with Slaw By The Realistic Housewife 03/30/12 19:56 Asian flavors are a family favorite here. They can really transform any typical American meal, like with the Asian Style Meatballs. Here, I took a typical pulled pork and jump kicked it onto a whole new level. You will be addicted after one bite. My whole...
Homemade Crackers Homemade Crackers By The Realistic Housewife 03/21/12 01:51 So, this weekend I went on a rampage through my kitchen and threw out every prepackaged boxed good. I'm over it. Done. I have 2 small kids, so it was a bit daunting. Most of the food they consume every day is a basic snack - pretzels, wheat thins, cheese...
Asian-Style Meatballs Asian-Style Meatballs By The Realistic Housewife 02/23/12 21:33 One of my first go-to meals before I really knew how to cook was Asian-Style Meatloaf. Well, I've tweaked my recipe here and there and switched it up into meatballs. They're easier to freeze, eat and control portion size. Whenever I want something like...
Valentine's Day Mini-Heart Soft Pretzels Valentine's Day Mini-Heart Soft Pretzels By The Realistic Housewife 02/14/12 21:29 I'm a sucker for a good soft pretzel. Regular old pretzels? Not so much, but a warm, doughy soft pretzel really hit the spot. Whether you go for one sprinkled in coarse sea salt or cinnamon and sugar, dipped in aioli or queso, you can't go wrong. These...
Rosemary and Thyme Roasted Whole Chicken with Teeny Tiny Potatoes Rosemary and Thyme Roasted Whole Chicken with Teeny Tiny Potatoes By The Realistic Housewife 02/12/12 21:00 This dish is so elegant, you would never know it was so inexpensive and easy. All you need is a small whole chicken, a bag of Trader Joe's Teeny Tiny Potatoes, a generous handful of green beans, some simple seasonings and voila! No one would ever know you...

But, reality strikes, and hey! At least I've been cooking up some fantastic meals and treats still. New Year's Eve Dinner was epic. Ideas of grandeur danced...

Pull-Apart Herb and Garlic Bread Pull-Apart Herb and Garlic Bread By The Realistic Housewife 12/28/11 21:28 These last couple of weeks here have been beautiful and cozy. I love this time of year because I am always constantly inspired. The autumn smells, changing leaves, the crackling and rustling of the leaves, just all brings on an air of mystery and intrigue....
Grandma's Peanut Butter Balls Grandma's Peanut Butter Balls By The Realistic Housewife 12/20/11 00:47 This year my cousins and I gathered the family together to make Christmas cookies for the first time. We realized that over the last couple of years the sweets offered at our family Christmas dinner were lacking in a big way. Our favorite treat was not...

Baby Bello Mushroom and Chicken Pot Pie Baby Bello Mushroom and Chicken Pot Pie By The Realistic Housewife 12/15/11 21:22 If you haven't noticed already, I love me some hotdish. My favorite category of such being The Chicken Pot Pie. And I do it many ways. It's almost never-ending, the possibilities... I get swept away, it's true! If you haven't already tried my Honey Mustard...

Cranberry Jalapeno Chutney Cranberry Jalapeno Chutney By The Realistic Housewife 12/05/11 18:38 I'm going to go ahead and call this a chutney. Since this blog is kind of a confession, I will admit to you this - I'm not sure if it would traditionally be called a chutney, but from what I gather from the Food Network, I'm at least not far off. And it...

French Onion Soup with a Kick French Onion Soup with a Kick By The Realistic Housewife 11/15/11 23:49 I am not a French Onion Soup connoisseur. I rarely order it in restaurants. It's odd. You would think with my love of caramelized onions and cheese that it would be one of my favorites. Well, now it definitely is. I had to make some executive decisions....

I'm glad I waited since this year I had Ann to help me plan it and we came up with the perfect menu. Part...
Sausage, Squash and Apple Chili Sausage, Squash and Apple Chili By The Realistic Housewife 10/26/11 16:27 Yes, I said Apple and Chili. I like my chili sweet. It's no secret in my house that I'm a fan of the spicy/sweet combination, and chili is no different. I usually add a tablespoon of brown sugar or honey and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Some people even put...
