Pizza Casserole

This dish tastes as good as it looks. I make it with Rotini Pasta. Then I add hamburger, pizza sauce, cream of mushroom soup and all the pizza fixings you want like bacon, onion, pepperoni, green pepper, mushroom etc. It is also a meal that can be made up ahead of time so that all you have to do is put it in the […]

Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet Cake is one of my favorite chocolate cakes. It makes for a great dessert for a family, a potluck or just about any type of get together. I have been making this recipe for about 35 years now. I’m not sure where the recipe came from but probably my mom. When I was growing up it was a sin […]

Chicken Lazone

Another fun day with the grandchildren. My granddaughter turns 6 in a few days. Today she asked me to pull out her loose tooth. It was so small I couldn’t get a good grip on it. I wrapped dental floss around the base of the tooth and pulled it right out onto her lap with no pain! Although she was very happy to get the […]

Taco Salad

Here is my version of Taco Salad. I used ground beef in this picture, however, if you want to make it even healthier trade off the ground beef with ground chicken or ground turkey. With the taco flavoring in the meat, you can’t even tell it’s not ground beef. If you wish, you can break up taco shells and sprinkle them […]

Easy Beet Pickled Eggs

I have always wanted to try Beet Pickled Eggs. I love pickles and I love beets so I knew I would love Beet Pickled Eggs. I made them using the juice of Pickled Beets. Terry does not like beets and would not try these so I only made a few. I use to can my own Pickled Beets and ate them […]

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 […]
