Mmmmm, Carrot Cake

If you ever stopped to look at the carrot cake mixes at the store, you would quickly realize that carrots are more of an afterthought in the ingredients rather than the main event. Those bits of orange in that cake, yeah, they aren’t carrots. They are carrot flavored pieces of corn syrup. If you are … Continue reading

She took the recipe to the grave…

As Thanksgiving neared, I saw several posts lamenting the loss of a favorite dish because the maker of the dish would never give out the recipe and took it to their grave. I understand about having family recipes and keeping them close. I also acknowledge that without the wonderful sharing of recipes, we wouldn’t have … Continue reading

Parmesan Fish with Cheddar Biscuits

It’s recipe time! Today I’m serving up Parmesan Fish with Cheddar Biscuits. I know, I know, some of you are saying, “Ewwww, Talapia!” for reasons. Some may not like it for the taste, some may not like it because it’s supposed to be a dirty fish or some such. But, I’m feeding a family of … Continue reading

Busy Spring!

Spring has sprung at our place! Things have been pretty busy around here since the beginning March. My middle son turned 16 (where did the time go?) on the first. Inara kidded twin bucklings on the second. So of course bottle feeding began. Kaylee kidded twin bucklings on the 7th in a rather difficult delivery … Continue reading

Fried Mushrooms

This recipe was requested after I posted the pic of them on Facebook. Fried mushrooms are an often requested treat here at my house. Once upon a time, many moons ago, I could find good, already breaded mushrooms in the freezer section of the grocery store. Alas, that was not to continue. So, what to … Continue reading

Halloween Traditions

While most people are gearing up for the Halloween holiday by creating or buying costumes, getting things ready to either trick or treat or receive trick or treaters, we are doing something different. It started years ago when my oldest two boys decided they didn’t want to trick or treat anymore. They were around the … Continue reading

Potato Soup

I posted about making potato soup the other day on social media and had several requests for the recipe. The first time I ever had potato soup it was at a little coffee shop and where it was just okay, I knew it could be so much better.  So I set about making my own. … Continue reading

Homemade Bread Recipe

Okay, things finally settled down long enough (and I finally quit working on my next book long enough) to post the bread recipe numerous people asked for. It’s quite simple and easy to make.           Bread 1/3 cup warm water 1 package yeast (I prefer Fleischmann’s but use which ever floats your boat) … Continue reading

Gommy Rolls

I know, another food post. Things have been incredibly busy for me lately, but when we made these tonight to go with dinner, I thought maybe you all would enjoy them too. This recipe was one of my Gram’s, she was a fantastic cook and this recipe deserves to be shared by many. I know … Continue reading

Recipe for Homemade Buns

I shared a pic of dinner last night and had several requests for the recipe I use for making buns. I found the original somewhere on the internet back a while, though I can’t remember where. However, I did change it a bit, because following the original didn’t make them come out quite as nice … Continue reading
