Pancakes have always been a family favorite in the Roe house. It's a simple, but must-have, basic recipe. Experiment with adding chocolate chips or blueberries and of course, making the three-circle, Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes.
1-1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
Beat the eggs; add remaining ingredients and stir well. Heat a dab of vegetable oil on a griddle or frying pan. Pour 1/4 cup of batter on to hot oiled pan. Flip after bubbling.
Serve with butter,... Continue Reading

I didn’t date much and I wasn’t voted Homecoming Queen, but I was involved in just about everything else while in high school.
My senior portrait
I loved being a cheerleader for both basketball and football for all four years, jumping up and down, doing the splits, hooting and hollering for our team and wondering if any of the jocks would ever ask me out. They didn't
I also loved to sing! I was in the school choir and competed at a lot of music contests. I also sang in two different high school singing groups from my church that toured around the Midwest, ministering at vari... Continue Reading

I recently found a couple of huge tubs full of family photos ..... tubs that probably haven't been opened in a decade or so. My plan (during my spare time ;)) is to go through those tubs and put together scrapbooks and photo albums. It also made me think about my family, my life and who we all are. It made me teary eyed and happy all at the same time and I have decided to start blogging about my family. My blog will be called, "Mary Beth's Memories" and here is my first in the series.
By the time I came along, the house was already full. But, as usual, they made room for one more.
It was... Continue Reading

Valentine’s Day holds a special place in my heart for obvious reasons, but did you know Mark and I actually met on Valentine’s Day? Yes indeed, and we were married just a little over one year later. And I can honestly say, I am just as much in love with him today, if not more, than I was more than three decades ago. Now, I’m not saying it is perfect, no marriage is, and it’s not always that crazy turn-your-stomach-upside-down kind of love after all of these years. However, it is comfortable like your favorite blankie kind of love!
Mark is my best friend, my confidant, ... Continue Reading

1 lb bacon
2 lb sea scallops
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Cut bacon in half. Wrap a half slice of bacon around each scallop. Depending on the size of the scallops and how much bacon you like, you can either leave them like that, or take one more half slice of bacon (like I did) and wrap it around the opposite side of the scallop to create a criss cross. If necessary, secure with wooden toothpicks.
Combine olive oil and spices. Pour over the scallops wrapped with bacon and cover with saran wrap.... Continue Reading

Chili is a great dish for making ahead, so when dinner time comes, you have more time to spend with your loved ones rather than spending it in the kitchen. It is easy to prepare and there are so many different variations. It's a great dish for the beginner cook, as it doesn't have to be prepared perfectly to taste perfectly delicious. Plus, you can experiment with chili powder and/or hot sauce to make it as mild or as hot as you like.
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1/2 Tables... Continue Reading

Did you know today is 'National Soup Swap Day'? It's similar to a Cookie Exchange, but instead of exchanging cookies, everyone exchanges soup. What a fabulous idea during the colder months. The article I read about a soup swap suggested 6 to 8 participants, exchanging 1 quart each of soup. You could even make a night of it bringing an extra quart to share together during a girl's night with dinner. Sounds fun to me!!!
However you decide to make and share my "Cream of Potato Soup", I hope you will love it as much as my family and I do. Let me know what you think if you do try it.
Cream of Pot... Continue Reading

My mom used to make this soup often when my siblings and I were growing up. It always tasted so good, especially since it was so cold in Minnesota. Perhaps it has a more formal name, but we always called it, "Mom's Cheese Soup!" and that's just fine with me! :)
