NEW! NAVAJO CORNBREAD

Two years ago we had a potluck dinner at work for Christmas. As I always do, I skipped right past the bread when I was fixing my plate. I don’t skip the bread because I’m low-carbing it or because I have a gluten allergy, I skip it because... >>READ MORE HERE>>


SLOW COOKER CHICKEN & MUSHROOM WILD RICE CASSEROLE

A delicious casserole recipe with wild rice, chicken tenderloins and mushrooms made easy in a crock pot. Growing up, we ate Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice all the time. Like, all the time. Maybe because Mama’s not a native Southerner so we... >>READ MORE HERE>>


TACO RICE SKILLET WITH QUESO

A one-pan skillet dinner recipe made with ground beef, taco seasoning and Mexican style rice drenched in an easy queso cheese sauce. My baby boy’s absolute favorite type of food in the world is Mexican. When the family’s going... >>READ MORE HERE>>

HAMBURGER & POTATO CASSEROLE

Our house used to be the default party house. Husband and I both love to entertain and we have a pretty cool backyard for kids (pool, basketball, trampoline, cornhole, etc.) so everyone always seemed to land at our house on the weekends... >>READ MORE HERE>>


S.O.S. CASSEROLE

Growing up, Mama made a Tuna Casserole that I LOVED. Reading that sentence really puts into perspective for me how much times have changed… at least one of my kids would saw his toe off with a plastic spoon before he tried tuna casserole... >>READ MORE HERE>>


CHICKEN & RICE CASSEROLE

If you’ve been with me very long you know how much I love rice. It is my verrrrrry favorite food of all time! Not plain rice, mind you (though I like it too), I mean savory dishes made with rice. My baby boy asked me the other day what one food..... >>READ MORE HERE>>


PIGS-IN-A-BLANKET CHILI CHEESE DIPPERS

We finally had a weekend off! WHOOP! WHOOP! We didn’t have any plans and weren’t playing baseball so I decided to enjoy a day of college football! We’re one of those weird families in South Carolina who root for both Clemson and USC.... >>READ MORE HERE>>

IMPOSSIBLE 5-INGREDIENT CHOCOLATE CAKE

I’ve mentioned them before, but we have two families that we spend a lot of time with. We’ve all sort of become family to each other over the years and it’s great because none of us has much family in the area. Anyway, we got together one night to celebrate a birthday and my friend, Amanda, had made a chocolate cake... >>READ MORE HERE>>


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>>


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>>


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>>
