Momma’s Hushpuppies

These are one of Mr. Awesome’s absolute favorite things to eat when we have a seafood night. They are so much better than store-bought mix brand and you can make them to your liking. I couldn’t find my recipe box the other day so I just whipped up a batch of the storebought kind and Mr. Awesome knew right away that something was different.

I got this recipe a long time ago when I was working at a small restaurant. The cook was such a sweet old lady and she shared quite a few ‘secrets’ with me that have helped me over the years. I have since added a few touches to this recipe which have helped to make this a family favorite! Continue reading “Momma’s Hushpuppies”

Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks

This is a new take on an old recipe that I’ve had. The kids (and myself) love breadsticks. I especially love the Cheesy Bread from Hungry Howies. This may not be quite as good but my kids don’t complain and neither do I as it is much easier than driving 20-30 minutes one way for an order.

My mouth is watering just typing in this recipe. Continue reading “Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks”

Blueberry Oatmeal Bread

Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon Toast


  • 2 slices bread
  • butter
  • 1 T sugar (I have been using Stevia or Monkfruit in place of the sugar)
  • 1 t. cinnamon


Mix together cinnamon and sugar. Toast your bread, butter it, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture.

I usually keep an old, clean, parmesan cheese shaker full of cinnamon sugar.

Use 2 T cinnamon to every 1/2 c sugar to make it in larger batches.

Banana Crumb Muffins

We have muffins several times throughout the month. They are so easy to make and can be eaten for breakfast or snack throughout the day. This is a good way to use up those overripe bananas sitting in the fruit bowl too!

The kids really like this recipe and refer to it as them as Banana Cinnamon Muffins. I changed the original around a little as I was running low on supplies one day and surprisingly enough it worked out just fine. You could also add some chopped nuts to the batter if you like.
