Thursday's Treasures Week 110

Hello dear ones!  I'm so happy you stopped by to share and get inspired!  I'm sad to say, next week will be our last week of Thursday's Treasures.  This week is my 110th week and I am a little burnt out.  Ya know?   It's just time to take a break and focus on the family and holidays.  Hoping to come back next year!  Love and hugs!

Cranberry Apple Waffle Dumplings

My boys love to eat waffles!  When I don’t have time to make homemade, I pop Eggo Waffles in the toaster for their breakfast.   And Hey, did you know...Eggo Waffles also make great desserts, like these Cranberry Apple Waffle Dumplings!  A tiny bit of tartness, here and there, from the cranberries and apples that are mingled with spice infused sugary, syrupy, sticky greatness!  YES!  Oh, did I mention I entered this delicious recipe in The Great Eggo Waffle Off?  Here is the link to my Cranberry Apple Waffle Dumplings

Homemade Butterfingers

Why.  Oh, Why? Did it take so long for me to run across this recipe?  Really?!  Why?!  I always buy candy corn around Halloween except that one year I couldn't find any.  WAIT!  Now I know why!  Y'all were hoarding the candy corn, weren't you?!  Well, this year, watch out...I'll be the hoarder!  ~Smile and snicker as I take another bite of  Homemade Butterfingers!~

Sausage Gravy Stuffing Casserole

This breakfast casserole is perfect for brunch or company breakfast.  Easy to make and delicious to eat!  What could possibly be better than sausage gravy in a casserole?!  Hmmmmm, I can't think of anything, can you?   Although I didn't make it ahead of time, I think you could easily make this the night before and pop in the oven for a busy morning breakfast!  If you do, please let me know!

Crock Pot Pork and White Bean Stew

My hubby, before we were married, made this wonderful meal for me the first time we ate together.  Yes, he cooked for me first.  ~smile~  He cooked it as a casserole (in the oven) and Oh. My. Goodness!!! If I wasn't hooked already...I was then. This still brings warm memories and smiles to my heart each time I make it.

Giving Thanks for Giving .. #CookingPlanIt Let's Your Hero Shine

#contest #heros

Holidays seem to bring out the best in people.  Sharing and caring.  Helping others.  Collecting food, clothes, presents for those that need a little extra.   A person that goes that extra mile? Gives unconditionally?  An angel that is always caring for the person down the street, around the corner or a friend of a friend?  Volunteers more hours than he/she is at home? Someone that is always the first to step up and out to help a neighbor and/or the community?  An unsung hero that never asks for anything in return, gets pleasure in helping and keeps the holiday spirit of love, caring, giving and sharing alive year round? Did a face flash in your mind as you were reading?  A simple nod, know just that person?  If so, now is the time to honor them.  This is your chance to honor those that give.  As a Cooking Planit Partner (remember the fantastic T-Fal giveaway?!), I am thrilled to be able to offer you an opportunity to let your hidden hero shine.

Chocolate Pudding Cake

An old recipe passed down and around from generation to generation.  Old classics, from our parents and grandparents, are the ones that are dear to my heart.  Tried and true, they are truly amazing.  Withstanding the test of time to be made over and over and over, again.  Just reading an old recipe can make my heart smile with sweet and loving memories of years gone by.  ~heartfelt smile~

Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes

If you are like me, you need an extra oven to bake your holidays dishes.  I recently decided to cook sweet potatoes in the crock pot, since my oven was occupied with a pork roast,  I was very pleased with the results.  They turned out perfect!

Apple Cider Bubble Bread

I love using frozen bread dough to make appetizers, snacks, desserts and even meals!  Rhodes Brown-N-Serve White Dinner Rolls is the only one I use.  Don't you just love using them?  So convenient to use, the aroma and taste!  LOVE!   I wanted to make something for my boys and put half a bag of rolls. in a pan, in the refrigerator to thaw while I went shopping.  I returned home with a new apple cider caramel drink mix, by Alpine.  Have you tried this?  It is so good!  My thoughts then turned to the dough in the fridge.  I knew what I would make...Apple Cider Bubble Bread!  
(This is not a sponsored post..I just love this drink mix and rolls!)

Microwave Chili Beans Succotash

My middle son, my oldest twin and self proclaimed vegetarian (although will eat chicken strips and an occasion cheese burger) loves spicy food.  Anything with beans, chilies and a bite is just fine with him.  He even eats onions like potato chips, honest!  This recipe was thrown together for him..a little on the mild side tonight after eating raw onions by the handful!  He must have approved as he gobbled up two bowls.  Made in the microwave, this was a one dish supper.  You can easily cook this on the stove, in the oven or a big pot in the crock pot.  My advice...at least double the recipe.  You will be glad you did.


Apple Pecan Cinnamon Roll Cobbler

Hey Y’all!  If you have extra apples and pecans (pronounced Pah-cahns) sitting around – without any particular use in mind…this is definitely the recipe you are looking for!  You may need to visit the local grocery store for cinnamon rolls or, if you are feeling it, make your own.  I make them from scratch, biscuit mix, and frozen dough.  Hubby buys them in handy tubes to pop open and bake, which is what I used for this Apple Pecan Cinnamon Roll Cobbler,

Pasta Pizza Casserole

Friday night is pizza night at our house.  Usually.  Since my youngest son has been sick, I didn’t feel like making homemade pizzas but wanted to make something similar.   This Pasta Pizza Casserole turned out to be perfect.  Cheesy and saucy (if you add more, I didn’t) with your favorite pizza toppings.  Cooked in a casserole while you tend to more pressing things..like nebulizers and meds and making certain others are not neglected.

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

It’s Fall!  Hopefully, we will see a change in the weather, something other than rain and heat would be welcomed.  How is the weather in your part of the world?  Wishing you comfort and sunshine, wherever you are. 
I seem to think of using pumpkin when Fall is officially here and visual at the market.  Making me want to take them home to decorate, display and eat them.  I did buy a pie pumpkin a couple of days ago but ended up using canned pumpkin for this Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal.  This is the first time I have cooked oatmeal in the crock pot and very pleased I did.  It was like eating a Pumpkin Spice Muffin in a bowl.  Warm and soft and quite filling.  This is definitely a keeper and will be made often.

Alfredo Spaghetti Squash

Do you like spaghetti squash?  I have cooked it several times and ways, yet my boys would not eat it. ( They are getting so picky lately, something I definitely need to work on.)  I have tried salt and pepper, butter and parmesan, spaghetti sauce..nope, nothing from my twins.  This time, I decided to go with alfredo sauce.  Good news, my oldest loved it!  He pretty much likes any white sauce and white pizza, just like his Mom.  The twins, well, they were being pretty negative about trying a new dish.  I'll keep making it, next time..I'll start, making it simple with  a little salt, pepper, butter and parmesan.  Sooner or later they should like it, right?!
