No Knead Skillet Rolls

Today was one of those rainy, dreary days and temperatures only went to the mid 60’s, even though it’s the second day of summer!  I made some ham and beans in my Instant Pot today and when I make ham and beans, I always make homemade bread, but today decided to make these quick and…

Happy Fall Y’All and Instant Pot

I can’t believe it’s September 22, 2017 already- First Day of Fall.  This past year has gone by so fast and it’s been 9 months since I last wrote a post. Holy Smokes! A lot has happened, in April I was diagnosed with uterine cancer.  That meant having a complete hysterectomy, which was done laparoscopically…

Here it is December 10, 2016 and 15 days until Christmas!  Have you started your Christmas baking yet?  I haven’t done any serious baking, but last night while it was snowing, I decided to make these quick and easy date balls.  I think these cookies are really my favorite. Either you love dates or you…

Monster Sandwich for 12

Yesterday was the first day of Fall and the weather was beautiful.  This is my favorite time of year, I just love all the colors, smells and activities that are associated with Autumn. I have been drinking pumpkin spice coffee for a few weeks now.  If you missed my post on my homemade Pumpkin Syrup…

Coconut Cream Pie and Easter Tradition

Easter is tomorrow and traditional in my home I make Easter bread.  It takes a lot of time because it makes 5 loaves and quite frankly,  I just didn’t have the time or maybe the energy to make it this year.  I did, however, decide to make a lemon meringue pie for my youngest son…

Caramel Heavenlies

It’s the Saturday before Christmas and I’m just now doing some of my cookie baking!  I almost didn’t bake any cookies, just because I know I’ll eat them if they are in the house and I don’t want to put on any more weight!! Can anyone relate with me?  However, Christmas only comes once a…

Provitica “Nut” Roll

Not too long ago, I saw an ad in our Sunday paper for Provitica Roll. It was mail order and cost per loaf was about $21.95 plus shipping.  I would never pay that much for one, but I loved the way it looked, especially the Poppy Seed one.  I love Poppy Seed rolls better than…

Are You Ready for Thanksgiving?

I don’t know about you, but I have been on Pinterest the last few days looking up recipes and ideas for Thanksgiving.  I like to try new things, but unfortunately, my hubby likes the traditional dishes I make every year. You know what I’m talking about, the turkey, the stuffing, sweet potatoes, cole slaw, cranberry…

Apple Pie

I’m sharing this basic apple pie recipe with you today.  I have been making apple pies for over 40 years (yes, I am that old) and I never was taught to cook the apples first.  Often, my pies would have hard apples inside or it would get too brown from over baking. This recipe will…
