Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas I’ve been looking for a really good and easy chicken enchilada recipe for a while now. I wanted one that was easy, fairly quick and delicious. Lately, I’ve been having these crazy Mexican food cravings (No family I’m not knocked up!) and homemade chicken enchiladas just sounded like heaven to me! I printed off a few recipes to try and pulled
A Bowl of Down-Home, Comforting, Savory, GOODNESS! It’s snowing! It’s snowing!! The only time I usually make up a pot of homemade chicken and dumplings is when it’s snowing outside! And today…BINGO WE GOT ACTION!!!! This homemade chicken and dumpling recipe is quicker than most, full of flavor and has that southern, old fashioned flair. If you prefer your dumplings cakey like the Bisquick kind
Margarita Beer Punch I’ve always wished I was a beer drinker. Beer looks so refreshing on those commercials being poured into frosty glasses. I’ve tried to make myself like the stuff so many times, but it does nothing for my taste buds. It’s just so…blah! Now Margarita Beer Punch recipe on the other hand!! Yes, ma’am! Pass Me My Dress!! because this is my kinda beer! The name may
Hot Buffalo Chicken Wings This is one of my all-time favorite buffalo, hot chicken wings recipe. It’s the one I make when I’m cooking for a large crowd of adults and kids. I adapted it from Todd Wilbur’s hooters buffalo wings recipe and just added a few tweaks. (I have a small crush on him by the way, don’t ask. It’s just a teeny, tiny
Homemade Potato Chips…From the Microwave! Fast, fresh, crispy, crunchy, seasoned homemade potato chips.!!! These potato chips are so addictive and so easy! It sure beats waiting for the oven to preheat. Thank God they are healthier than store-bought chips! Making homemade potato chips takes me back to my girl’s scout days…ahh the creative things we use to do. OK, so I wasn’t actually a girl
Bubbling, Buttery, Sweet, Juicy Peach Cobbler, What A Blessing!! I have had soooooo many requests for me to list an old fashioned style canned peach cobbler. And I’ve been saying I would since the beginning of this blog *hangs head down in shame* I am just now getting around to listing a homemade peach cobbler recipe and I feel so ashamed. BUT ALL GOOD THINGS
Old Fashioned Apple Crisp I LOVE apple crisp! I probably love it a lil bit too much and my gut can testify. I prefer my apple crisp to have a gooey, crispy yet chewy type topping but I have been getting sooooo many requests to do an apple crisp with a crispy type topping. Kinda like that old school kind that grandma used to make.
Southern, Soul Food Black Eyed Peas **see updated recipe below* Nothing says Happy New Years better than a pot of soulful black-eyed eyed peas & soul food collard greens! Whether you buy into the hype that eating these dishes will bring wealth & a slew of other good things, just enjoying them with family and being thankful that I’ve made it into another year is MORE
I was never a fan of ravioli as a child, especially that canned crap. As an adult, I absolutely love the stuff especially if it’s homemade but frozen suits me just fine! This baked ravioli recipe has to be one of my toddler’s favorite meals. I like it because it’s quick and easy. Something I can throw together and still have it come out tasting
Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Poppers Jalapeno poppers are normally an end of summer/early fall appetizer, but in my circle, they pop up year’round. These lil appetizers are so addictive and really should come with a serving limit! I found myself saying ” I’ll just have one more” several times. When I was first introduced to jalapeno poppers I wasn’t too thrilled to give them a try.
Strawberries & Champagne Punch I really like this version of Strawberry Champagne punch. In my family, we call it the “giggling punch” because it doesn’t matter if I use champagne or sparkling grape juice this stuff still makes people “jolly” for some reason. Actually, we have lots of “giggling punches” in my family lol. We’re silly! It’s lightly fizzy, fruity, crisp, refreshing and the champagne taste
Spicy Chunky White Chicken Chili *see updated recipe below* I was first introduced to white chicken chili through my mother-in-law and simply fell in love with it. It looked like such a complex chili that would take all day to make, but I knew that if she made it then that most definitely wasn’t the case. She is the queen of all recipes quick, easy
Classic Party Fruit Punch This easy fruit punch drink recipe has sooooo much history with me. A pure classic! It is the fruit punch that my mother made for EVERYTHING! Birthday parties, baby showers, holidays, school parties you name it and this fruit punch was there! Aside from this being one insanely quick & easy fruit punch recipe, it is very addictive. I can sit
Easy Blackberry Cobbler ***see updated recipe below*** I LOVE COBBLER! There is just something about its rustic appearance, simple ingredients & incredible taste that does it for me. This is the third cobbler I’ve made this week. (I’ll be hitting the p90X workout hard tomorrow) I’m going through a crazy cobbler crave and I just can’t get enough of them! I know fruit cobblers are
Southern Baked Macaroni and Cheese (Soul Food Style) Yes Please! I’m pretty sure you all know how hard it is to find a good, southern, soul food style baked macaroni and cheese recipe right? People tend to keep a tight grasp on their prized macaroni & cheese recipes. Well, imagine my shock when my sister sashayed in on Thanksgiving and casually placed this baked
