Caramel Apple Dip

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

There are some people out there that always mention this blog and how much they use it every time they see me. A sweet friend of mine, Leslie, is one of those people. She always makes it a point to tell me how useful she finds the site and how many times she uses my [...]

Super Bowl Recipe Round-Up!

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

There’s a pretty big game coming up this weekend, and I know most of you will be watching. And one of the most important things about the Super Bowl is the food that is served during the game. It’s all about manly football food (DUH!) so I thought it would help if I rounded up [...]

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 [...]

Homemade Feta Sauce

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

There’s this restaurant in Jackson, MS, which shall go nameless so that I don’t accidentally infringe on any kind of copyright or tradmark issues, but I tell ya what…they have the BEST pitas that have ever been made. And judging by the huge crowd there every single day at lunchtime (I’m not brave enough to [...]

Cheese Wafers

Friday, December 16th, 2011

I thought maybe y’all were sick of sweet recipes and could use something different for a change. Don’t you go gettin’ too comfortable with the savory recipes though because tomorrow I have some more sweets to post for you. It is Christmas after all, the season of eating chocolate for breakfast and it being completely [...]

Peppermint Crunch Bark

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

Nothing says the holidays quite like this yummy, crunchy, pepperminty bark! I make this bark every year and package it in pretty little containers to give away. It makes great gifts for office friends, bosses, customers, teachers, and friends! It’s also something great to take to holiday parties. And to make it even more appealing, it’s [...]

Reindeer Chow

Friday, December 9th, 2011

This delicious recipe was shared with me by my sweet friend Robin. That girl can make me laugh like nobody’s business, and my kids think she hung the moon and stars just for them! Making this recipe is one of those things that my kids look forward to every year around Christmas time, and they look even [...]

Pistachio & Cranberry White Chocolate Bark

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Can you say heaven on earth? Because that’s what these little bits are, little tiny pieces of heaven right here on earth! I actually made this recipe last week and the day after my mother-in-law came over to keep the kids for me while I went to run an errand. When I came back she [...]

Seasoned Oyster Crackers

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Nothing on the face of this planet reminds me of my Nana at Christmas time more than her seasoned oyster crackers. There was never any question about whose house we went to on which day at Christmas time growing up. We always went to my dad’s family on Christmas Eve after our Christmas program at [...]

Tri Delt Trash

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

When I tell you this story, you are going to have to agree not to commit me for being a crazy food fanatic, okay? Promise? So now that we’ve all agreed on that, here goes. Way back in the day when I graduated high school (I’m officially an old lady today, as today is my [...]
