Stacey’s Quick Sausage & Pepper Dinner

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

One day while over at Mimi’s (my mother-in-law’s) house she was making this yummy looking dinner. She said that it was a recipe that my sister-in-law Stacey had made for her a few days earlier and that it was so good that Papa (my father-in-law) had already requested it again. Even my three kids were [...]

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

I know, I know…y’all wanna drop-kick me to next week for going MIA on  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 [...]

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 [...]

Sweet Potato Snack Cake

Monday, November 7th, 2011

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never really been much on sweet potatoes. I think it all comes from a yucky, stringy baked sweet potato I had about 18 years or so ago. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since, thereby avoiding sweet potatoes since that very day. That is…until [...]

Corn Chowder

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

It’s finally cooling off down here in the South, although we are still much warmer than the rest of the country. Still, it’s cool to me and you know what that means? I am craving soup! It doesn’t matter what kind, I’ll try anything as long as the weather is cool. My 5 year old [...]

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 [...]

Mae Mae’s Sliced Potatoes

Monday, October 10th, 2011

This is yet another recipe from my sweet, sweet Mae Mae. She used to go through phases with these potatoes (actually, with every recipe she used). She’d make them over and over for a while and then go for months without making them. It’s like she’d forget about them and then once she remembered them [...]

Southwest Chicken Wraps

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Being that I am a stay-at-home-mom, I very rarely get to go outside of the house for a meal. Which completely okay by me, because I could survive on these wraps alone. I kid you not, they are that good. I usually make up the filling for these wraps (corn, black beans, chicken, rice) on [...]

Homemade Alfredo Sauce

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

In honor of my hubby whose 30th birthday is tomorrow, I’m posting his favorite meal of all the things I’ve ever made. And wouldn’t you know it would be something simple like alfredo sauce? Time and time again I realize that my family is so simple, that they really just prefer basic meals to eat [...]

Mae Mae’s Sweet Garlic Pickles

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Let me just start by saying that I’m posting this recipe, which will (next week) be followed by another recipe that uses these pickles as an ingredient.  You don’t want to miss out on that one! It’s super easy and delicious so don’t forget to check back for that one. Now, on to the pickles! [...]
