NEW! COUNTRY-STYLE BABY LIMA BEANS

There’s a local meat-and-three restaurant chain here in my neck of the woods called Lizard’s Thicket that we go to a good bit. It’s the perfect place to go when you’re craving country cooking… especially vegetables! They offer over 25 vegetables and side dishes every day which is why it’s my go-to when we need to... >>READ MORE HERE>>


CREAMY CUCUMBER SALAD

A few years back I was planning my menu for Christmas and needed another green vegetable (which is what I call anything that isn’t a casserole and isn’t a starch) and decided to make a cucumber salad. Well, I had eaten plenty of creamy cucumber salads in my day but I’d never actually made one so I started looking at my... >>READ MORE HERE>>


PINEAPPLE & BACON BAKED BEANS

Every time I share one of my baked beans recipes, people always tell me I need to try making them with pineapple – that they’re FANTASTIC with it! I’d never run across any baked beans with pineapple before but it sounded good to me so I thought it was about time I tried it! And y’all! Oh my goodness! I’m so glad I listened because... >>READ MORE HERE>>


JAILHOUSE RICE

You’ve got to have pretty thick skin to have any sort of public presence on the internet. You’d think a leelittle ol' food blogger could share a few recipes without getting treated like a Kardashian. But… you’d be wrong. Social media has made people downright mean, y’all! I mostly just laugh at the stuff I get but I’ve had to... >>READ MORE HERE>>


PAULA DEEN'S BANANA PUDDING

OK, so this is a little weird. I'm sharing a popular recipe with you and I’m not changing a dang thing. Some food bloggers would tweak one ingredient by a 16th of a teaspoon and pretend it was a brand-spanking-new recipe they just invented but, y’all... there’s no two ways about it… this recipe is absolutely perfect and shouldn’t be altered... >>READ MORE HERE>>


CHICKEN & STUFFING CASSEROLE

One of my VERY favorite recipes is Mama's Squash Casserole. You know the one with the Pepperidge Farm stuffing and sour cream? UMPH! I could eat the whole thing by myself! So I got to thinking… since I love it so much, why not use the same recipe to make a main dish casserole with chicken (instead of squash)! Which is exactly what I did..... >>READ MORE HERE>>


SAUSAGE & RICE CASSEROLE

The Sausage & Rice Casserole is one of my all-time favorite recipes. We have it for supper regularly (especially now that AB is old enough to help with some of the cooking) and it’s one of my go-to recipes to make when I need to bring a covered dish. Because we love it so much I decided to change things up a bit and try it with ground beef.... >>READ MORE HERE>>


PINEAPPLE CASSEROLE

Man, DANG, I wish I’d gotten this recipe out to y’all before Easter! I can’t believe I’ve never shared it with you before because it is a huge favorite with my entire family. When we have ham, we MUST have Pineapple Casserole with it. We MUST. It’s the RULE. Period. Even my meat-and-potatoes husband has to have it. There’s just something about the sweet pineapple and cheddar cheese that just goes with ham....  >>READ MORE HERE>>


SUPER EASY SCALLOPED POTATOES

Y’all know what a rice lover I am. I rarely cook potatoes because, well, I’d rather have rice. Husband has come to love it too… though, that might be because he hasn’t had a choice. Either learn to love rice or you’ll go hungry at my house 😁. Every now and again, he’ll ask for potatoes. And since he rarely asks for anything special, I try to oblige him when he does....  >>READ MORE HERE>>


PECAN CORNBREAD COBBLER

The last time I was in Texas I was introduced to something I’d never heard of or tried before: pecan cobbler. It was obviously a local favorite and one bite made it a favorite for me too!I’ve searched a bit online over the years for a similar recipe but have never been able to find anything like the pecan cobbler I had tried on my trip...  >>READ MORE HERE>>


BUTTER-BRAISED SLOW COOKER PORK ROAST

The “Mississippi-style” chuck roasts are all the rage right now. Ya know, the ones where you dump a packet of this and a package of that over a roast, slap a stick of butter on it, then arrange pepperoncini peppers around the top? And they’re delicious! But I got to thinking two things… one, let’s add that butter to.... >>READ MORE HERE>>
