NEW! 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>>
