Pizza Dough

First off, Happy New Year everyone!  Hopefully no one over did it over the holidays?  I tried my best and didn’t eat too too much. Of course, my older son’s birthday was just after the New Year, and my mom had bought us a Yule Log to have for Christmas (it was so amazingly good…

Ready For Christmas

Today I had my family over for Christmas brunch.  There was lots of food (way too much), along with cookies and treats that I had made a week ago, and of course a cake!   I didn’t actually take any photos of this cake while it was being made, but it’s such an amazing cake…

Fudge

Again, another staple for Christmas baking is fudge.  I believe I started making fudge shortly after my husband and I first moved out together when I was 18.  One of my husband’s friends girlfriend told me just to melt chocolate, pour in a can of sweetened condensed milk and voila – fudge. Now, my mom…

Peanut Butter Balls

For years I would make peanut butter cookies, and push a mini Reeces Peanut Butter Cup into them.  But a few years ago I decided to try making these. My husband and my younger son both agree that these are simply the best.  These do not last more than a week in this house.  Which…

Soft Gingersnap Cookies

I know, it’s sort of incorrect to call these Ginger Snap cookies, as there is no real snap to them, but it’s what I’ve always called them.  They’re one of my favorites (I know I have a lot of favorite cookies – I have a problem that I’m willing to admit when it comes to…

Cheeseburger Macaroni

I am willing to admit when my husband and I first moved out together wayyyyyy back in 1991, I had no clue how to cook.  Even taking cooking classes in school, the only thing I really learned was how to have a good flour fight.  Our “go to” meal was either Kraft Dinner, Ichiban soup,…

Perfect Roasted Chicken Breasts

Normally I would not boast about something being “Perfect”, but these truly are perfect!  And super easy as well. I actually will bake off a pan of chicken breasts at the beginning of the week, to have them on hand for dinner for the week – or I will even bake them off when I…

Parmesan Crusted Dinner Buns/Breadsticks

Have I mentioned we eat alot of bread in our house?   I make bread or buns on a weekly basis, sometimes 2 or 3 times a week.  Although we do buy bread as well, otherwise I would be constantly baking.  We go through at least 1 loaf of bread a day, although I believe…

Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Muffins

I absolutely hate getting bored, so when I do I start to bake.  My poor husband, like he isn’t busy enough with work, then he comes home and sees what sort of mess I’ve made.  Although he does eat most of what I bake or takes it to work for the guys that work for…

Parmesan Accordion Potato Casserole 

We are carb lovers in our house – bread, pasta, potatoes – you name it, we consume it.   This is one of those recipes that you can make and have for a few days. These potatoes reheat well in the microwave, although honestly my husband eats them cold from the fridge. He has also…
