We love good food in our home. I love to cook and bake for my family. I have shared recipes and pictures of our yummy goodness on different venues. Many have suggested a blog to share the recipes.

*DISCLAIMER* I am not a professional cook, photographer or writer!

I will always try to give credit for recipes. Many I have collected over the years off of TV, various websites, friends and family.

Please leave comments if you try a recipe or share variations of things I post, I always love learning new tricks of the trade.

Marinated Cucumbers

Our local farmer's market is open for business and that makes this girl very happy!  I picked up some fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans and cauliflower this past weekend.  We had pot roast for dinner and I wanted something light and refreshing along with it.  I know cucumbers probably doesn't sound like a good combination but it was actually quite refreshing.  I know many people make something like this with onions but I don't enjoy onions and since I was the one that really wanted it, I made it to make my taste buds happy!

Marinated Cucumbers
4 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup cold water
2 tablespoons chopped dill
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash pepper

Combine sliced cucumber with all other ingredients; cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours before serving.
