Apple Fritters

My husband rarely requests anything from the kitchen, so when he asked for apple fritters, I started doing my research immediately. I came up with 2 or 3 recipes that sounded good using Bisquick. I love Bisquick because I really like the way it tastes and it makes cooking with dough super easy. I added lemon zest because that was always the secret to my Mother’s apple pie. When I made these…

Short Ribs Are Where It’s At

Finally, gloriously, at long last, FALL has arrived in Texas. It officially arrived September 21st but I think it was around 112 that day so who noticed? But, now we have settled into what is known in the south as that time of year when you may still break a sweat around noon but by evening there’s a hint of chill in the air.

Oven Fried Chicken In Panko & Parm

I’m really not much of a baker and certainly not a bread maker but you can’t mess up beer bread, and the smell is like heaven. As I was throwing a batch together one night I thought…

Killer Mexican Lasagna

This Killer Mexican Lasagna is amazing, folks! There are simply times when I want a one dish meal and a mexican recipe seems to fit the bill perfectly. It’s so easy to blend all the ingredients of a Tex Mex dinner into one dish and have it turn out great and this recipe is no exception. I love pulling out a hot, bubbly casserole and putting it on the table with simple sides for everyone to finish off…
