Blueberry Banana Bread

Banana Bread has been a staple in my kitchen for more years than I can count but, somehow this never occurred to me. It’s really an obvious move because who doesn’t love blueberries and banana’s together? And the end result is this delicious Blueberry Banana Bread! I can’t take credit for the idea since I was in bed with the flu doing what I always do when I have time on my hands…

Oatmeal Raisin Brown Sugar Cookies

These Oatmeal Raisin Brown Sugar Cookies were originally inspired from a recipe by Ree Drummond of Pioneer Woman fame. Her Brown Sugar Oatmeal cookies are slightly thin and crisp and are absolutely DELICIOUS. I have made her Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies 100 times and loved every bite but, this is just a different kind of cookie with a few small changes…

Tortellini Soup

This blue ribbon Tortellini Soup is truly comfort food at it’s best. I discovered this soup many years ago when my good friend Sheryl invited me over to her house on a cold Sunday night for dinner. We were single mothers at the time, trudging our way through schedules that were busting at the seams and Monday morning was looming…another week of work demands with kids in high school at that particular time of my life…

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I swiped this creamy chicken tortilla soup from Tricia Yearwood’s Food Network Show a couple of weeks ago because it looked so good. When I read the reviews online a couple of days later every single person who had tried it after they watched the show gave it a thumbs up and a 5 star rating so I knew it had to be a winner…

Classic Chocolate Pie

There’s nothing very fancy or complicated about a Classic Chocolate Pie recipe. There’s also nothing better than a slice of real, honest to goodness, made from scratch chocolate pie. A frozen variety or even one from the bakery just isn’t the same and to make the original takes little if no effort. Spoiler alert: I do not make my own pie crusts so that certainly saves me some time…

Schlap Happy Bars

I found this recipe for Schlap Happy Bars in a new cookbook that was written by Kimberly Schlapman of the band, Little Big Town. Reading cookbooks is one of my guilty pleasures and these Schlap Happy Bars can certainly be added to the list since they are as sinful as they are delicious! They are full of chocolate, butterscotch chips and chunks of toffee bars…
