Family Friendly Chili Everyone and their sister’s neighbor have a chili recipe.  I have more than a few myself. This one however is special for two reasons, first for how easy it is to make (I had this in the slow cooker and cooking in 14 minutes.)   And secondly this is a great family friendly chili that’s not too hot, nice and thick with powerful...

Maple Sausage Gravy Biscuits and maple sausage gravy, what’s not to love?  When you make these the whole house will be filled with the smell of love, and maple sausage.  This sausage gravy is so easy to make and so good that you’ll find yourself and you’re family wanting it for breakfast all the time. Let’s give credit where credit is due....

I intended to have this post done before the holidays but the website was going all wonky so I had to wait until that got straightened out. You don’t have to wait until the next holiday to have these wonderfully light and fluffy German pancakes.  These are great for breakfast or brunch I’ve even done them in a dutch oven while camping!   Try these;...

English Toffee!! This is the ultimate candy. It’s got it all; sweet, salty, crunchiness, and melt in your mouth goodness. I have to apologize right up front for making you read so much. Candy making is a pretty particular kindof thing, just one thing can be off and the whole thing will fall apart on you. Don’t let that scare you off, this is a really...

Some people love leftovers and others hate them.  I’ve got the solution right here with macaroni and cheese that you make from scratch and add in some leftover chicken (or turkey since this is right after Thanksgiving).  What you have is a great new meal. Any time you buy a rotisserie chicken from your local market, fried chicken from your favorite fast...

Thanksgiving is coming up  and either you’re going to someone’s house to celebrate, you’re having guests over to your house.  Either way, make this pecan pie the day before and it’ll be sure to be a crowd pleaser.  After all, on Thanksgiving, man does not dessert on Pumpkin Pie alone. There are two camps when it comes to pronouncing pecan....

When I was growing up, it wasn’t dinner unless meat and potatoes were being served. Now that I’m older I know that there’s lots of other options but sometimes, when you’re really seeking comfort food,  you just can’t deny that there’s any better comfort food than getting back to basics with pot roast. This pot roast is very easy...

What’s your favorite dessert?   I’ve got two that I can’t resist.  First are chocolate chip cookies, and the second thing I can’t pass up is ice cream. I’ve always been partial to chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream which combines both of my favorites. That is until I learned how to make mint chocolate chip ice cream.  It’s...

Camping..  who doesn’t love camping?  Well if you’re one of the few that doesn’t continue reading and scroll to the bottom, I’ll share a way to make this wonderful breakfast at home. One of the very best things about camping is breakfast. If you’re like me you’ve had everything for breakfast while camping from dry cereal, scrambled...

Real men don’t bake. Or, maybe real men do. Either way, this time you won’t have to with these no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. And as an added bonus they’re gluten free, so I’d call them healthy too. I was first introduce to these cookies as a kid by my cousin Carol. She was my age at the time (okay, okay, just a little younger) so...
