Pure Vanilla Extract

I use a lot of Pure Vanilla Extract in baking. How many of you knew it was made with alcohol? In my opinion, there is not a Pure Vanilla Extract that tastes or smells as good as homemade. You won’t want to purchase Imitation Vanilla again once you see how SIMPLE it is to make Pure Vanilla Extract. There are only two ingredients, 70 […]

Orange Chicken Over Rice

  Terry, my wonderful husband, wanted to surprise me with a dish he has never made before. It was very easy and quick to make. Since he does the grocery shopping (lucky me) he bought frozen chicken pieces that were already cooked and breaded along with frozen stir fry veggies. He found the bottle of Orange Sauce in the Asian food aisle. Sounds pretty easy doesn’t […]

Pickled Beef Tongue

When I was a kid, my parents always encouraged me to try many different types of food. I think the only food I didn’t like was onion and green peppers. When my mom made stuffed green peppers, she always made me a separate pot of the stuffing with the green pepper left out. I still do not like green pepper today. Dad was […]

Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

Fixing Chicken & Dumplings in the slow cooker is another easy and delicious meal. Dumplings can be made homemade or you can buy a can of home-style biscuits from the store and cut each biscuit into four pieces. This way is very easy and they turn out like  dumplings, not biscuits. There are many different types of dumplings so pick your favorite as they […]

Tortilla Chips

How many times do you have left over tortillas and just throw them out? I decided to turn mine into seasoned Tortilla Chips and were they yummy! Not to mention we had them with Chi-Chi’s Medium Salsa, our favorite. They were so good warm, right out of the oven, and the perfect snack. You can add any spices you would […]

Crab Rangoon

I can never turn down Crab Rangoon! I love how this recipe turned out. I bake a big batch of them and freeze them uncooked.   They are ready to eat in 30 minutes from the freezer to our plates. When I’m ready to fix dinner, I put them on a cooking tray to thaw for about 15-20 minutes and bake them in the […]

Giant Chocolate Filled Cookie

I made this delicious cookie for my husband. Ok, so maybe I ate just as much as he did. I decided to try a giant chocolate filled cookie in my cast iron skillet. I wanted to make it taste different from the regular chocolate chip cookies that I usually make so I used milk chocolate chips instead of my normal semi-sweet chocolate chips. […]

Beef Sticks

Every year for Christmas I buy my husband a beef stick from Hickory Farms. It’s kind of funny because I don’t usually care to eat any, however, these were amazing! Never in my wildest dreams did I know how easy they are to make. I don’t understand the process in which the ground beef turns into the beef stick consistency […]

Spaghetti With A Twist

I always look forward to Sundays. My grandchildren (age 2 & 5) visit for about 14 hours. Now keep in mind, I am not a morning person! Yet when the alarm goes off at 6:15 am I have no problem getting up to see their smiling faces at my door. Feeding them throughout the day is no problem, they eat […]

Jam Diagonals

I have been making these sliced cookies filled with jam and topped with lemon frosting for years. This recipe was given to me at my wedding shower many, many years ago. The guests were asked to write on a recipe card with their favorite recipe. This quickly became one of my favorites too. They look elegant, taste great and are easier […]
