Tasty Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you wonder why I have not published more recipes for vegetable side dishes, the reason is there is really not much of a recipe usually involved. I usually fix very simply prepared steamed, roasted, and sauteed vegetables. Brussels sprouts are one of those veggies that I usually fix the same way my mom made […]

Delicious Electric Skillet Fudge

There is no better sweet to me than good peanut butter fudge. However, I must admit that I am something of a peanut butter fudge snob. There are many peanut butter fudges sold in stores and market stands that I do not think taste good. To me a good peanut butter fudge is smooth, creamy […]

Coconut Macaroons

I love coconut macaroons, but I always bought them. This was my first attempt to make coconut macaroons. Turns out, they are fairly easy and very delicious. As they were not part of my family recipe collection or experience, they required some research. First, I went through many of my cookbooks, then I checked for […]

Easy Pepperoni and Pasta Casserole

Whether it is a quickly prepared meal for a busy weeknight or a dish needed to take to a friend who is ill or had a death in the family, casseroles are my “go-to” dishes. Besides being comfort food, they usually reheat well and can often be frozen…a great benefit when things are hectic. The […]

Simplify by Cooking Ahead: Chicken

I love chicken, but I also love quick meal preparation as well.  I do not love precooked, frozen chicken’s taste or price. I used to love buying rotisserie chickens for the same price as raw.  I also loved that they tasted better than what I made at home for cold chicken recipes.  I used them for […]

Chipped Beef Gravy

This is comfort food.  It is easy and quick to make. I keep dried beef as one of my emergency supply staples.  I have to go through and use it every once in a while, so it doesn’t expire if nothing else.   Plus, I love chipped beef gravy! My allergic-to-milk husband is away on business, […]

Never Fail Pie Crust? Well, Maybe

Okay, this pie crust is supposed to be an easy, never fail kind of recipe. Well, I will admit that when I did follow the directions given me by my aunt, my pie crust failed. In my family, we frequently leave out leave out directions that we always do but often don’t think about. In […]
