RECIPE: Homemade Catalina Dressing


Homemade salad dressing is SO easy to make and there's nothing fresher. It makes all the difference on a salad. Here's an easy to pull together recipe for Catalina Dressing, one of my personal favorites!

RECIPE Orange Chicken Stirfry


Mr Mom loves stirfrys and loves Orange Chicken just as much, so when a friend shared this recipe with me, I just knew I had to surprise him with it. It was a hit!

RECIPE: 7-Up Chocolate Cake


We've featured Dr Pepper and Coca Cola cakes so it's only fitting we shared this 7-up Chocolate Cake that I found via the Dollar General store. This cake is so very light and fluffy and the secret ingredient adds depth to the chocolate flavor. Check it out!

RECIPE: Gerard Steak


Thank you to Jacqueline Edwards Schuster for sharing this recipe from her homeland. She tells me she's been making it since she was 13 years old, and I can see why after having it for dinner tonight. It tastes wonderful!

RECIPE: Bananas Foster Monkey Breadb




I love Bananas Foster anything, so when I saw this recipe on a local news morning show, I just had to give it a go. That said,  this full recipe is just too much for Mr Mom and me, so I made individual ones with my mini bundt pans. Perfect!

RECIPE: Ham and Asparagus Trottole Pasta


We had a little ham left over from Easter, some fresh asparagus from a local Farmer's Market and gourmet pasta from Aldi's on sale this week for $1.69 a bag. It went perfectly with my new pasta serving platter. This is so simple to make, and if you can't find trottole pasta, substitute another hardy, large sized pasta.

Let Summer begin!

RECIPE: Salt Lick German Potato Salad



Driftwood, Texas' Salt Lick BBQ is world famous. I can't think of a better BBQ place, in a better location, anywhere. If you are ever in the area,  it's well worth finding, but remember - go with an empty stomach, because you're going to fill it up with some the best BBQ you've ever tasted. If you ask, they'll allow you into the kitchen area, to photograph the pit. Mr Mom always lives for that moment. 

Here is their amazing and yet simple German Potato Salad, that is served warm with every meal. If you're in Texas you can find the Salt Lick BBQ sauce at your local supermarket, and if you can't or you're out of state visit www.saltlickbbq.com and order it online.

Here's the Salt Lick's easy recipe for their German Potato Salad.

RECIPE: Green Enchilada Chicken Soup


A friend sent me this recipe in an email a while back, finally got around to making it, and I'm so glad I did. It is a quick soup to make, and makes enough for a couple of bowls, rather than a large stock pot full, which makes it perfect for single people or couples.

RECIPE: Brownie Refrigerator Cake



I know this looks sinful, but I lightened up the ingredients every chance I could. I used a sugar free brownie mix, light cool-whip, sugar-free puddings, low-fat milk, and sugar free chocolate syrup.

RECIPE: Carrot Casserole


Mom's Pantry friend Don Lynch sent in this favorite family recipe for us to try. He tells us his Grandmother would make this casserole every Sunday for a crowded table of relatives, and no matter how many showed up she always seemed to have enough food. Grandma's are definitely magical that way. I took this recipe for a test drive tonight and it was a hit! A definite "must" for the upcoming holiday dinner this month.

RECIPE: Cauliflower Potato Salad


Many people today are looking to reduce carbs in their diets, whether it be for weight-loss reasons or because of diabetic restrictions. But that doesn't mean you have to give up old favorites, as Sharon demonstrates with his recipe for potato salad made with cauliflower instead of potatoes.

RECAP for April 4 2014

Here is today's recap. I apologize for being so quiet today, between the weather events, a migraine and working on the new cookbook the day passed very fast. I'll have something new for you tomorrow. I hope all our Southern friends that were/are in the line of storms we had today are safe and sound tonight. <3

Important Information 

This is really important. We have almost 156,000 subscribers to our page, but Facebook only allows me to see the last few that have liked our page, and the ones I have had to ban. I am compiling three separate mailing lists to help reach you, when Facebook makes it so difficult. We all know Facebook may not last forever, (remember MySpace?) so let's try and stay in touch regardless. Some pages are reporting that Facebook is limiting them to 1% of their list now. I'd hate to lose contact with everyone. 

I have three mailing lists. I am working on them now. I will have to pay a fee every month for a new service but the MailChimp service's free 2000 members maxed out quickly for us and its unusable. I have transferred everyone from there on to the new service so don't fret - but if you have not signed up for anything you can do so here:
