Adorable Chicken Cakes

I know I’ve posted these pics before but I thought I’d share some of the progress pics when I was making these… I forgot to take pics while making the second cake and the cupcake but they were super simple! These were inspired by Pinterest!

I made these for little miss’s birthday but these would be super cute for Easter as well!

I also forgot to take an up close picture of the picture of the little caterpillar but it was just some green fondant balls with a couple of candy eyes and antennas (flower stamens) added. I probably should’ve use red but Isabella picked out these pink ones.

Creole Spaghetti

This is another recipe that I’ve had since high school… it has always been a big winner in our home. I’ve come a long ways since Home Ec class and I rarely measure anything anymore but it’s a good thing I’m putting these recipes online as this one is getting so worn that the ink is smudging badly. I also like using a little bit of minced garlic in mine as well. You might also like this recipe: Mama’s Secret Spaghetti Sauce.

Mrs. B’s Good Easy Pizza

This is a recipe I’ve had since my high school home economics class. It was always a hit with my younger brothers and sisters as pizza was a rare treat for us when we were growing up and being able to make it at home was a blessing!

Homemade pizzas are always so much fun because everyone can make their pizza the way they like it… yay! If you don’t care for the tomato sauce you could probably give this a try with some Easy Alfredo Sauce.

Banana Bread

This is another recipe from the old recipe box… who knows how long I’ve had it for sure? I do know it is a great way to use up any old bananas that might be hanging around your kitchen.

This also works great for the freezer. Just allow the bread to cool completely before wrapping in plastic wrap and placing it in the freezer.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

This is a recipe that I’ve had for a while but haven’t made for quite some time! You can have fun and experiment with different flavors and seasonings to find your favorite. We want to try them with some maple syrup one time!

Roasted pumpkin seeds have a lot of different health benefits as well. You can read more about them HERE.

You can also use this recipe for seeds from winter squashes, like spaghetti squash and butternut squash, as well. Continue reading “Roasted Pumpkin Seeds”

Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

The other day I made a quick errand run to Sam’s Club to pickup up a few essentials and grab something for my sister-in-law to be. The kids and I then met up with her and exchanged her items and I got a camera that my brother no longer needed… yippee! Y’all know I have been talking about getting a new camera… new-to-me is new enough!

This actually happens to be the same camera that was used at my daughter’s wedding so I know how well it works and I’m excited to play with it and start taking some awesome photos!

By the time I got home, I was so ready for a nap and EVERYONE was starving. I decided to make a quick sheet pan dinner with some Super Yummy Caulitaters. This meal was so simple!

This particular day I also made a simple cheese sauce to go with it as Mr. Awesome can’t have broccoli without the cheese.

I should have doubled the recipe as EVERYONE DEVOURED it.

Susie Q’s Simple Cheese Sauce

This sauce is so simple to make and can turn a good meal into an extraordinary one with just a few simple ingredients. You can put this on almost anything from meat, veggies, and pasta for a creative dish. Once you see how easy this is you won’t want to go back to store-bought cheese sauce!

This is one of those recipes that I just have in head and I don’t normally measure so I tried my best to estimate the amounts. I’ll really try to remember and measure the next time I make it so I can adjust the recipe accordingly. Continue reading “Susie Q’s Simple Cheese Sauce”

Momma’s Green Bean Casserole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before now. I wouldn’t have realized it if my oldest daughter hadn’t asked for the recipe. I figured I might as well share it with everyone because things are getting a little hectic around here as we have packed up a few things as we prepare for our new home and who knows where this recipe might end up?

One of my fondest memories from when I was little was sitting on the back porch with my Mom-mom helping her with the beans and other goodies she had harvested from her garden.

As I got older I did this with my kids as well. I can still remember when we had a Doberman, named Mac, who loved green beans. The little stinker would run right up to the washtub and steal the beans every chance he got! Continue reading “Momma’s Green Bean Casserole”

If you don’t care for lavender oil you can use just about any other oil that you prefer.

Super Simple Egg Salad

This is such an easy thing to make and so delicious… I just boiled some eggs so I think I might just whip up some really quick and have a sandwich as it is way past lunchtime! I like to eat mine on toast but maybe I’m just weird but it is good just as it is too. Continue reading “Super Simple Egg Salad”
