Mae Mae’s Famous Vegetable Soup

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

I know I’ve mentioned my Mae Mae on this site many, many times and I believe I’ve even mentioned her famous soup before. My Paw Paw used to grow the best tomatoes. Matter of fact, I’d kill for one of them right about now. I have never in my life tasted one that tasted even [...]

Quick Roast Beef Wraps

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

One night about a month ago, I wasn’t feeling my best and quite frankly, just didn’t feel like cooking supper. Yes, even I have these nights. I love to cook more than anyone else I know but there are times when I just can’t stand the thought of fixing another dinner at home. So I [...]

Mississippi Roast

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

A couple months ago a sweet friend of ours from church made our family dinner to help us through a tough time. We had just returned home from Boston for my son’s 18th surgery and we were all exhausted round-the-clock. Let me just tell you that it completely made my day to not have to make [...]

Taco Soup

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

I know, I know…everyone already has a recipe for Taco Soup in their favorite recipe book. But mine is probably different. We’ve discussed my hubby’s pickiness before. Sometimes I feel like just walking away and not fixing my picky eaters anything at all! Making taco soup in my house used to involve making three different [...]

Hamburger Steak

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Yesterday I posted on my blog’s Facebook page (check it out, if you haven’t already…that way you get notifications when I post new recipes!) and asked what type of recipe y’all would like to see today. The overwhelming vote was for a quick main dish. Far too often we all fall into the weekday dinner [...]

Hamburger Sliders

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Before I tell you about this recipe let me just tell you about my hubby. He’s a super picky eater. He doesn’t like anything “weird” in his food, and “weird” in his mind qualifies as anything other than pasta, meat, or potatoes. He sure doesn’t like onions or peppers, and will turn his nose up [...]

Chili Mac

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

So many children are so familiar with throw-together meals like Hamburger Helper these days that they don’t know what “real” food tastes like. I’m not a fancy cook by any stretch of the imagintion, but I do like to prepare homemade meals for my family when I can. This is one of those meals that [...]

Tammy’s Meatballs

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

This recipe comes to you from my…well, I’m not really sure what to call her! She was once married to my cousin and although they have been divorced for quite some time, she still remains in contact with our family and we just can’t get rid of her. Just kidding, Tammy, we love you! Anyway, [...]

French Dip Sandwiches

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Do you ever have one of those days when you are in the grocery store, standing in the middle of the aisle and unable to think of anything at all to fix for dinner? This rarely happens to me because once a week I make a menu for my family and we pretty much stick [...]

Taco Meat My Way!

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Hamburger meat, as we call it here in the South (elsewhere you probably call it ground beef) is a staple on the weekly dinner menu. It’s easy to find, inexpensive, and cooks quickly. There are a gazillion different things to do with it, and this is one of my favorites. No matter how many times I [...]
