Red Velvet Cookies

When it comes to cookies, I’m always looking for something new and delicious.  The last cookie recipe that I threw together was the Oreo Chunk Cookies, soft sugar cookies packed with Oreo chunks and topped with Oreo crumbs.  Those were a big hit. Soon after the last cookies, I came across a recipe for red velvet cookies, andRead More

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

For those of you in the Southeast, you’re probably familiar with the lack of snow that we get around here.  The last time we had significant snow here was three years ago, and it’s something we don’t even get on a yearly basis.  So, naturally, when we know it’s coming, the grocery stores get insanelyRead More

Peanut Butter Fudge

As I’ve mentioned before, my family is a bunch of peanut butter nuts.  A lot of times, the in-laws in our family either chuckle or roll their eyes when yet another peanut butter dish comes into the house, and this would be a good example. The first time I made this was several years ago,Read More

Chicken Noodle Soup

Well, it’s a brand new year…AND it’s cold outside.  So, how about starting out the new year with a healthy, delicious, warm and satisfying classic comfort food?  Okay then, let’s do it! After making the chicken and corn chowder, I had to make more soups.  You can actually use the same procedures with this soupRead More

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

Lately, I’ve been thinking about different trifles to make.  Several years ago when I couldn’t find a recipe for an Oreo Trifle, I made one up myself…and it was amazing.  So, I’ve been brainstorming about different types of trifles to put together.  As I was thinking about strawberries and cheesecake, the though of having theseRead More
