Mae Mae’s Christmas Ambrosia

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

This is another one of those recipes that floods me with memories of my sweet grandmother, Mae Mae. When thinking of Mae Mae and the many things she always made at Christmas time, you can’t leave this recipe out. I remember boxes of fruit being at her house, but I don’t remember where they came [...]

Gingerbread Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but last year during the Christmas season I went a little nuts. I bought six packages of gingerbread cookie mix because they only sell them during Christmas season, and well…what if I get the hankering for a gingerbread cookie in July? I personally have never made gingerbread cookies [...]

Cheese Grits

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Are you guys making your list of all the things you want to make for Christmas yet? I am! Then again, that’s probably no surprise to all of you. I usually do the same thing every year for breakfast on Christmas morning, homemade cinnamon rolls and sausage balls. My kids love it, it’s easy, and [...]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

I had hopes of making a pumpkin roll sometime during the Thanksgiving holidays, but time just got away from me. November was such a crazy busy month that I never got a chance to make it and I was so disappointed! I know it’s almost December and it’s time for Christmas goodies and all kinds [...]

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Monday, November 28th, 2011

I am so ready for Christmas that I just don’t know what to do! My family has been through so many trials and tribulations this year that I have made a promise to myself to enjoy this Christmas season as much as possible, no matter how tough things are. This is a time for family [...]

Turkey Pesto Panini

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Are you folks sick of turkey yet? I’m not! I could think of a million ways to use leftover turkey but this recipe I’m sharing today is one of my absolute favorites. I’m a self-proclaimed sandwich addict. I could probably eat nothing but sandwiches for meals the rest of my life and still be a [...]

2511 Rolls (Cloverleaf Rolls)

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and I’m sure you are all planning out your menus. Except those of you that claim you can’t cook…you guys are probably wondering which place is the best to buy an already cooked casserole or dessert. I got you, didn’t I? I’m not making fun at all, I truly stick by [...]

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 [...]

While she’s away she’s asked me to guest post over on her blog, so please click over (www.myheartsdesireblog.com) and visit her to see the delicious recipe I’m sharing. And be sure to leave her some blog love while you’re there telling [...]

Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Please forgive me, but I’m going to do it again. I’m passing you all another muffin recipe that is pretty much just an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast. Chocolate is good for you, though, right? At least that’s what I’ve read (I throw away the magazines that say otherwise, don’t you?). Those are the kind [...]
