Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Ahhhh, finally fall! Although fall in Mississippi simply means we aren’t in the triple digit temps anymore. I’d love it if it would cool down even more than it already has, around 72 all day everyday would be about perfect for me. Seeing as how that’s not going to happen though (*sigh*), I choose to [...]

Nana’s Pear Salad

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

As a child, I absolutely loved pears, so my Nana would always prepare this salad for me. She’s a bit on the fancy side so she’d plate it up for me on lettuce leaves atop fancy china and let me use her real sterling silver cutlery. I’d eat up every bite that she ever fixed me and [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chess Squares

Monday, September 26th, 2011

You know how you find recipe after recipe online that you like, you bookmark them and come back to them looking for something yummy to make? Please tell me I’m not the only one out there with a Favorites folder jam packed with recipe after recipe. Anyway, I was in a baking mood one afternoon [...]

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 [...]

Butterfinger Trifle

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Here’s another one of the easiest, most delicious dessert recipes you’ll ever find. If you can bake box mix brownies, you can make this because that’s pretty much the only cooking involved here. I’ve been making this dessert since shortly after I got married and no matter how many times I’ve made it, I always [...]

Hamburger Steak

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Yesterday I posted on my blog’s Facebook page (check it out, if you haven’t already…that way you get notifications when I post new recipes!) and asked what type of recipe y’all would like to see today. The overwhelming vote was for a quick main dish. Far too often we all fall into the weekday dinner [...]

Lemon Surprise

Friday, September 16th, 2011

My goodness it was killing me! I am totally a sweets person and have had this recipe ready to blog for a few weeks now, but thought maybe y’all were getting tired of sweets so I’ve been trying to be more diverse with my recipes lately. I couldn’t take it anymore and had to post [...]

Doris Ann’s Chicken Spaghetti

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

If you didn’t know I’m living in the South just by knowing me, then you’d dang sure know it by the names of people that I mention. Most everyone has a double name, which as we know is almost mandatory down here. I myself don’t have a double name but a good many of my [...]

Quick Chicken Salad

Monday, September 12th, 2011

You know those days when you just want to throw together a meal and be done with it? Well this recipe is for those days. And to be completely honest it’s not so much a recipe, but more of a list of ingredients that you add to your liking. I actually came up with this [...]
