Fresh Tomato Pie

This is another recipe that includes mayonnaise, which I do not like at all, and is amazing!  Fresh tomatoes and a convenient biscuit mix (homemade), result in a pie that is pure comfort in it’s simplest form.  Go on outside and pick some tomatoes,  beg your neighbors, or head out to the farmers market, do whatever you have to do to get fresh tomatoes to make this Fresh Tomato Pie!

Thursday’s Treasures Week 103

This is the last Thursday’s Treasures Joan, Chocolate, Chocolate and More, will be hosting.  Bittersweet feelings flow as Joan continues to move forward and grow her fantastic blog.  There is no limit, how far she will go.  I am honored to have had her with us.  Thank you, Joan, for being a lovely and gracious host.  It has been such a pleasure to share each week with you.  You will be greatly missed.   Love and hugs, sweet friend! 

Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

I saw my sweet friend Michaela, An Affair From the Heart, make 2 ingredient Pumpkin Spice Muffins.  Awesome!  I knew I had to make them for my boys but opted for a different cake mix.
My youngest said these are yummy, moisty and delicious!  Yes!  Another score!

Potato Gnocchi

I have never made gnocchi before.  Ever so often, I will get a whim to make something new.  Actually, it happens quite often.  I'll get a light bulb moment and I just have to make that special something.  This, was one of those moments.  Certainly, they can 't be that hard, can they? The making part of the recipe was not that difficult.  When it came to the pattern, you know, the little lines, it was a bit hard.  I used a fork to go around the little pieces and that did not work well for me.  I then made little balls and indented with a wooden spoon handle.  Those shapes were easy enough to make.  The end result was the same ... light potato and cheese pillows topped with a simple tomato sauce.  Perfect!

We love the way these bars turned out!  A dense yet soft cake, gooey filling and satisfying peanutty topping!  Yes, we are happy about this one!

Cornmeal Shrimp and Cooking Planit

If you have been around my blog lately, you know I am hosting a Cooking Planit T-fal Giveaway. September 2-8, 2013.  I was gifted a set of T-Fal to review and I absolutely love.   Have you heard of Cooking Planit?  It is a great website, and app, to use when you want a complete meal ready at the same time.  There is also a shopping list available to conveniently check what ingredients you have on hand and what you need to purchase.  I use Cooking Planit website (my review), since I don't have an iphone or ipad and cannot access their free app.  I am happy to say, an android app is in the making and will be available in the near future!

On Labor Day I was looking on Cooking Planit to find something fast and delicious to make as an appetizer while waiting for our meal to cook.  Did you have a great Labor Day?  Did you Barbeque?  We ended up cooking indoors since the clouds were gray and the weather not promising for grilling, as planned.  There are so many wonderful recipes to choose from.  I typed in shrimp in the search bar and narrowed it down to recipes only instead of meals. There I was offered 17 recipes to chose from.  Awesome! While they all looked amazing, I picked the Quick Cornmeal Shrimp.  Fast...oh is!

I made these delicious Quick Cornmeal Shrimp for a fast snack to share with my family this Labor Day.

Southern Skillet Green Beans with Ham

As a Southerner, food is about the seasoning.  Seasoned with love and pork is just about all there is to cookin’ a great meal.  Y'all know, everything is better when there is pork in it.  Beans of every sort have a hunk, or pieces, of ham, bacon, salt pork or hog jowl.  This dish is a skillet stir fry of a Southern classic…Green Beans with Ham.  I used my new T-fal skillet, I received as a gift to review from Cooking Planit, to make this comfort dish.

Biscuit Donuts

I remember as a child…watching my precious Mama as she stood at the stove cooking these sweet biscuit donuts.  A paper towel lined plate and brown lunch bags were close at hand.  The ingredients inside held different varieties of sweetness.  Powdered sugar, my favorite,  cinnamon and sugar, and plain ole granulated sugar could be found inside.

Thursday's Treasures Week 100 Amazon $60 GC Giveaway

Woo Hoo!!!! I am so excited! This is the 100th party of Thursday’s Treasures! To celebrate .. Joan, Christie and I are having a $60.00 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway! How fun is that?

Lemon Raspberry Cobbler

Making this cobbler has been on my mind a lot lately and I just needed to make it.   I bought fresh blueberries and tucked them in the back of the refrigerator.  However, when I went to gather the ingredients, the blueberries mysteriously disappeared and were nowhere to be found.  Well, maybe not so much a mystery.  I pretty much know where they went.  One of my twins just loves them and I'm pretty certain he is behind the missing blueberries.  Since I no longer had the main ingredient for my cobbler, I had to find a substitute.   What to use?  I rummaged through the freezer and found a bag of raspberries.  Yes, they would do.  How did it turn out?  Perfect!  Crackles of sugar top a melt in your mouth lemon cake and saucy sweet, and a bit tart, raspberries underneath!  Yes, I am so glad my son ate the blueberries!

You love saving money, don’t you?  Yes, I knew you would.  I love to clip coupons and this .50 Philadelphia Cream Cheese coupon  ( for a 2 pack no less!) is a fantastic one to use at Walmart.   The two pack of philly cream cheese is a great price already and even more so when paired with the coupon.  Click, print and save.  And then, do it all over again.  Yes, you can print two coupons!  I did!  To view the digital coupon, you must be within a 5 mile radius of Walmart.  Not a big deal, you were going shopping anyway, right?
