Oilfield Cafe: Easy Peach Cobbler

When it comes to my Oilfield Cafe posts, I tend to talk about a lot of main dishes or appetizers but never really desert. Which, if you ask me, is the best part of a meal. So when I decided to make a peach cobbler the other day, I thought I’d share it with y’all! […]

Preschool Party Idea

  This year for my three year olds Valentine’s Day Preschool party I needed something quick, easy, and healthy since Daddy is out of town on his hitch! I decided for my preschooler this year I was going to skip the packaged sugar cookies and bypass the temptation of festive mini candy treats, and instead get creative with “yogurt […]

Oilfield Cafe: Kentucky Burgoo

If you’re like us here in Kentucky, that is, getting pummeled with weather that you are not at all used to and entirely unprepared for, you’re probably feeling pretty frustrated by now. I know I am. Unfortunately, until old man winter decides to release his stranglehold on this part of the country I guess we […]

Oilfield Cafe: Super Fast, Super Easy, Super Quesadillas

When my Hot Oil Man is gone, I don’t like to spend too much time in the kitchen.  Actually, between home school, housework, the kids’ extracurriculars and everything else going on, I just don’t have time to spend in the kitchen. When dinner sneaks up on me and I need something quick (quick and kid […]

Oilfield Cafe: Crock Pot Taco Soup

I just have to share this recipe I got from my wonderful mother-in-law, Jonise. It’s a simple and tasty taco soup that can be thrown together in minutes and leaves your family extremely happy. My favorite part of this recipe? It involves the crock pot. I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: […]

Oilfield Cafe: Creamy Crawfish Dip

Being a true Louisiana man, my husband loves crawfish. He doesn’t just like it and eat it occasionally; he loves it. Normally we eat crawfish in etoufee or, if I’m lucky, we have it flown fresh from Louisiana to North Carolina and have a big boil and party. Either way, it’s usually in at least […]

Not Your Grandma’s Crock-Pot Potato Soup

One of my very favorite meals when I was a little girl was my Grandma Harper’s Potato Soup. She always made it so effortlessly and no matter the time of day or time or year it hit the spot! Today, even at 27 and as a wife and mommy Potato Soup is still hands down […]
