Lazy Man’s Cherry Cobbler

Friday, February 25th, 2011

My dad is a huge cherry dessert fan. Every time I think of him eating a cherry dessert, I am reminded of a hilarious story my mom once shared with me. She was pregnant with my big brother and had been put on bed rest due to hypertension. It was my parent’s first anniversary and [...]

Fruit Pizza

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Not many people nowadays are lucky enough to meet their great grandparents but I was. Actually, if I remember right I knew four of mine and treasured each and every second I had with them. I remember them so fondly, in such loving ways. Well this recipe reminds me of one of them…my great grandfather. [...]

Restaurant Style Salsa

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

My husband is EXTREMELY picky when it comes to his salsa. At every Mexican restaurant we go to, he has some complaint about their salsa. It’s either too chunky, has too many onions, isn’t salty enough, etc. Well for Christmas last year I bought myself a food processor. Hard to believe that as much as [...]

Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Raise your hand if you are the type of cook that likes to just throw a couple of items in a pot, turn the button to on, and walk away knowing you’ll come back to a delicious, home cooked meal? ME ME ME! Don’t get me wrong, I am one of those people that absolutely [...]

Double P Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Quite a catchy name, don’t ya think? I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t enjoy a good pork tenderloin. It’s one of the easiest meats in this world to cook, after all. It’s cooks quickly, and is just so tender and juicy. And to top it off, it’s not all that expensive. It’s a [...]

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Monday, February 7th, 2011

I am probably the world’s BIGGEST chocolate chip cookie fan on the planet. I could literally live off of them, and I go into withdrawals if I go longer than a couple days without one. Due to this serious addiction of mine, I’m always making fresh cookies (from scratch, of course) to ease the cravings [...]

Layered Tex-Mex Dip

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

This recipe is yet another that is somewhat of a mixture of several recipes that I liked, but I kicked them up another level by adding my own twists. This is probably one of my absolutely FAVORITE dips of all time. No traditional Mexican layered dip comes close to the flavor that you get out [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Paradise Bars

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

OHMYGOODNESS! If you love the ever-popular peanut butter/chocolate combo as much as I do, then these little bars of heaven are for you. I found this recipe one day while at my moms house. When I’m over there I usually pull out some of her old cookbooks and go through them while we chat. When [...]

Jalapeno Popper Dip

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

We all know the big game is┬ácoming up this weekend, so I thought another dip recipe would be most appropriate for today’s post. Recipes for Jalapeno Popper Dip are floating all over the internet right now, but I have never found a recipe that suits my taste just right. So I put together all of [...]
