Brown Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake

I have made this Brown Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake many times and even posted a picture on my facebook page.  Did I write the recipe down?  No!  Don't ask me why.  That tends to happen a lot.  I start something then have to stop....get to busy and totally forget to return and finish what I was doing to begin with.  You do know what I am talking about, don't you?

Snack recipes: White Chocolate Coconut Cream Dip and Cool Whip Cookies

Can you believe summer is over?  It seems like just yesterday, my boys were saying goodbye to their classmates and hello to summer.  In a blink of an eye, summer is gone and school has started once again.  My boys are excited to see their teaches, meet new friends and catch up with classmates they had not seen over the summer.  It's time to get back into the routine of things and part of mine is feeding my boys yummy snacks when they get home from school.

Dutch Oven Italian Pull Apart Bread

I have wanted to cook in a Dutch Oven for the longest time.  This summer, I decided I would wait no more and bought a Lodge Camp Dutch Oven.   What an amazing way to cook!  And this, Dutch Oven Italian Pull Apart Bread, using Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls, was the perfect recipe to start with!

Make it Your Way Overnight Casserole

Do you love the convenience of mixing everything together and having it ready to cook later?  If you do, this Overnight Casserole is just that.  You can easily make it your own by switching the soup, meat and vegetables.  Use all veggies if you know someone that is on a no meat tangent, like one of my twins.  Toss in some fresh herbs to make it pop with flavor.  Your meal...make it the way you and your family like it.

Baked Parmesan Zucchini Stacks

Don't you just love the bountiful vegetables of summer?  I certainly do!   Zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes and onions are stacked and baked ... yes!  I made a meal of this while hubby and my boys ate steak and onions I cooked in the crock pot.
























Blueberry Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Pecan

It's July and it is hot as a firecracker outside and in!  I don't know who in their right mind would turn on the oven in this heat!  Well, except yours truly.  I had a reason behind my madness.   Wanna hear it?  Good....I thought so.  I figured, if I turned on the oven and made this fantastic Blueberry Coffee Cake for hubby and the boys, I could get a couple of breakfast meals, or snacks, out of it.....no turning on the oven a second time!  Make sense?  Maybe not but it was reasonable to me.  A huge plus since I, one....used up all the blueberries in the fridge that were going to go bad.  And two ..... I have been wanting to make this for a long time!


Hot out of the oven!

Peach Mango Frozen Greek Yogurt

Sweet fresh peaches, honey and Cabot Greek Yogurt combine to make this amazing Peach Mango Frozen Greek Yogurt.  I opted to make this in the freezer.  As much as I like an ice cream machine...I cannot make a great ice cream, or frozen delight, with any consistency.  There have been a few....Cheesecake Ice Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream are two that I can think of.  Anywho,  I went back to my old ways.  Isn't that the way it goes?  Mixing the ingredients and letting the freezer work for me.  I made this in the morning and by afternoon I had a healthy frozen treat for my boys.

Cold Crab Dip

My hubby's new favorite dip!  It's a cold dip...which means no heating up the kitchen.  A huge plus in these, already steamy, hot days.   This delicious dip would be great with shrimp or lobster if you prefer.  Imitation seafood would also be great.

Apple Pecan Dessert Pizza

I am thrilled to be a part of Rhodes Pizza Month!  At our house, Friday’s are reserved for pizza.  While I occasionally make my own crust, I LOVE the convenience of using Rhodes Bake N Serv Frozen Bread Dough. Rhodes Bake N Serve White Dinner Rolls and White Bread Loaves are perfect for making any type of pizza crust.  Some nights are thin and crispy, others are hand tossed, deep dish and/or dessert pizzas.  Our new favorite is this Apple Pecan Dessert Pizza.

Chocolate Chip Bars made with a Cake Mix

I have to say, baking is my favorite part of cooking.  Whether it's from scratch or semi-homemade, I'm loving it. That is why you will find so many desserts on my blog. Don't get me wrong, I do love to cook meals.....just not as much..  Smiles are always plentiful when my boys smell something baking in the oven. These Chocolate Chip Bars are no exception.  They are so easy to make...which I definitely love, with the help of a boxed cake mix.

Roasted Okra

I haven't always loved okra.  I would eat it once in a blue moon roasted in the oven, the way my Precious Mama and Grandma cooked it.   However, for most of my life, I despised it.  The sight of slimy green pods just didn't make my heart sing.  Fast forward .. I now put it in stews, soups, peas and beans, loving the flavor and the way it thickens whatever it is cooked in.  I also love Roasted Okra!
