Corn Casserole or Bread

Corn Casserole is a great dish to make for a home meal, brunch or any type of “bring a covered dish” get together. It can be whipped up in a matter of minutes. You can cook it a little longer, as I did, to make it more of a cornbread consistency or you can cook it less for a more […]

Cincinnati Chili

I have never made Cincinnati Chili before I met my husband…..and I still haven’t! When we got married my husband had fixed Cincinnati Chili for me….and he still does! I was not only in love with him, but his Cincinnati Chili too! What is Cincinnati Chili you ask? Chili over spaghetti noodles with cheese on top. It is so good! […]

Cheesy Bacon Hasselback Potato

When I make these potatoes, I pop them in the microwave. It only takes about 8 minutes for two medium potatoes. They can also be baked in the oven for 40-60 minutes. You can add anything you like to these potatoes or change them up by using a different cheese like fresh parmesan or one of your favorites. Wash your potatoes with […]

It has a great combination of flavors with the sweetness of the pineapple, spiciness of the BBQ sauce and the touch of salty soy sauce. It’s hard to believe there are only four ingredients in this recipe with all the flavor. Place your […]

This was very time consuming and not exactly easy to do. He only complained a little but kept saying he hoped they tasted awful so he […]

Chex Mix

I have always loved the store bought Chex mix. It is so much cheaper to make your own because once you purchase your ingredients, you get multiple batches of Chex Mix from them. I have tried other recipes that I found on line for Chex Mix, but they have never tasted just right for me. I finally came up with […]

Loaded Baked Potatoes

Who doesn’t love baked potatoes filled with cheese, bacon, sour cream and onions? When I make these for dinner, they are our meal. I think these turn out so good because of the bacon and bacon grease. I save all my bacon grease and use it many times while cooking. Everyone thinks bacon grease is so bad for you. But […]
