Carla’s Chicken Casserole

Friday, March 16th, 2012

I’m a sucker for a good chicken casserole. What better way to use up leftover chicken than to throw it in a big pan with lots of creamy goodness? And this chicken casserole is one of my favorites. My mother-in-law claims that she can’t cook as good as she used to, but every time she [...]

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

I know, I know…y’all wanna drop-kick me to next week for going MIA onĀ  you, right? Well at least I have a good excuse. A short while ago (about 7 weeks to be exact) my hubby took a job working in Dead Horse, Alaska (Prudhoe Bay). Since he left, sickness has taken ahold in my [...]

Strawberry Chess Squares

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Let me just go ahead and get this out there – I’m a huge chess square fan. I’ve never met a dessert with the word “chess” in it that I don’t like. Chess is code word for “awesome stuff”, if you ask me. I have had this recipe idea in my head for a long [...]

Ham, Swiss and Poppyseed Sliders

Friday, January 27th, 2012

In the past, I’ve admitted my undying love for sandwiches of all kinds. If it’s meat (or even veggies for that matter) between bread with some cheese, I’m likely to fall head over heals in love with it upon first bite. These little sammies are no exception. I tasted these for the first time at [...]

Peanut Butter Fudge Cake

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

I read online somewhere today that it’s National Peanut Butter Day? Peanut Butter is reason enough for me to celebrate, how about you? Peanut butter is one of those things that I couldn’t live without if I tried. It’s so creamy (or crunchy), sweet, nutty, delicious. I just can’t get enough of it, especially when [...]

Christmas Recipe Round-Up

Saturday, December 24th, 2011

I hope that you and yours are having the merriest Christmas of all! I plan to spend the next two days thoroughly enjoying and taking in every single second with my little ones. The joy on their faces this time of year is so magical and only lasts for a short time, soon they’ll be [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

I hadn’t planned to share this recipe with you, at least not this year. I made them for the first time last weekend during our marathon baking/candy making day here at my house and after the first taste I told myself there was no way these babies weren’t going on the blog. Each year my [...]

Peanut Butter Fudge

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

A sweet family friend of ours, Mrs. Doris, was kind enough to share her grandmother’s Peanut Butter Fudge recipe. I’ve longed for a good peanut butter fudge recipe for years, and this one is it! It’s simple, creamy, and delicious…just what you want in a fudge recipe. I feel sure your guests would love a [...]

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Growing up, my family always went to my uncle’s house for breakfast on Christmas morning. It was one of my favorite times of the season, a time when we could go show off all of our new toys from Santa while enjoying time spent with family and diving into a delicious omelet made just to [...]

Fran’s Sugar Cookies

Monday, December 19th, 2011

This recipe is another one that goes way back. My sweet aunt, Fran, has been making these cookies for our family every year for Christmas for as long as I can remember. Fran is married to my mom’s brother, Buster, and they have lived away from home more often than not over the years. Even [...]
