Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

One of my favorite things to make are cinnamon rolls and having a bread machine makes it even that much easier! My mom and grandma both made good cinnamon rolls, but even my mom admits this recipe beats hers hands down! I’m sure you could make it without a bread machine, by mixing with a…

Hello February!!!  It’s snowing here today as we just experienced some of the coldest weather in decades!! We had a low of -8 F with windchill of -24 F, but that was nothing compared to the -60 windchill in some of our Northern states. Since I’m kind of snowed in today and it’s Friday, thought…

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!

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…

Salt Dough Cherry Pie

On January 27, I celebrated my 60th birthday!  The worst part of turning 60 is I have to go get my photo taken for my drivers license!  Why is it those photos always look like mug shots??  I celebrated with my hubby, and my son and his fiance. My grand-daughter who lives in Texas made a…

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…
