6-Week Raisin Bran Muffins

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Life has a way of taking over at times, doesn’t it? During the last two months, our family’s lives have been in a whirlwind of happenings. It’s been one thing after the other. We sold our house, moved to the bordering county, my husband accepted a new job (14 hours away from home) and started [...]

Easy Caramel Brownies

There are about a million different recipes out there for these brownies. This recipe has been around for as long as I can remember. You can choose any one of your favorite community cookbooks around here and you’re sure to find some version of it. And there’s a reason for that…because they are just that [...]

Ranch Dressing

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

There just are no words to describe my love for ranch dressing. I have always liked it, but my obsession with it started back in school when my best friend suggested I dip my french fries in it. At first it sounded awful, but needless to say, I was immediately hooked. Then I began putting [...]

Lizz’s Double Chocolate Cookies

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Geez louise does life ever get so nuts when my hubby is away! He’s gone for 6 weeks at a time to his job in Alaska now and I’m here to tell ya…taking care of a house and three kids all by yourself is quite the job. I barely have time to do anything these [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Nutter Butter Balls

Monday, December 19th, 2011

You remember the Oreo Truffles that I posted last year, right? If not, here’s the recipe again http://www.thesupermomchef.com/?p=405. Don’t even think about not making them because you will immediately fall head over heals in love with them. So, I was thinking what else I could mix up with some cream cheese, roll into a ball, [...]
