RECIPE: Mini Corn Dog Muffins


I've been eyeing this idea on Pinterest for awhile and today was the perfect day to try to it out because I had an extra pair of little hands to help me prepare them. We had a lot of fun making them, and even more fun eating them. I had mine with mustard and he had his with ketchup.

Karen Emerson shares this recipe for German Pancakes. We have a local restaurant here that makes them as a specialty. They drizzle theirs with lemon juice, or offer fruit such as apples with them. Wonderful!

RECIPE: Pasta Salad Seasoning Mix



It's almost Summer! It's time for backyard BBQ's and salads for dinner!  We go through a lot of pasta salads during the hot months here in Texas. Here's a great mix to keep on hand that I found in an old church cookbook from somewhere in Tennessee. You can add to it (I like parsley flakes in mine), or take away (I leave out the cayenne). You can vary up your pasta salad by adding some vegetables or chopped chicken, but the this seasoning mix is a great base.

RECIPE: Jacquie's Meatloaf


Meatloaf is such a simple meal, and yet a good recipe for it is elusive to many. Jacqueline kindly shared her recipe with me that she's tweaked over the years. She uses a Hawaiian BBQ sauce in and on hers and thankfully I had some in my fridge. It added a great smoky sweet taste to the savory meal.

RECIPE: Root Beer Float Pie


This recipe has taunted me for awhile, and I just never seemed to find the time to work it into my schedule, but I finally found the 5 minutes it takes to make it, this past weekend. So glad I did. Its light, both in taste and content/calories.

RECIPE: Chicken Pasta Casserole


Earlier this week I shared a recipe for a bulk spaghetti sauce, that you can make and keep in your freezer when you need a quick meal. Tonight I proved how easy it us to make dinner when you have this sauce on hand. Mr Mom and I were busy grocery shopping and gardening today, and so dinner needed to be easy. Thanks to the sauce in the fridge, it was!

RECIPE: Spaghetti Sauce


A big thanks to Jacqueline Edwards Schuster for this great recipe. I just made a meatless batch for my freezer so I can thaw it out and use it in any way I'd like. It made about 9-10 cups of sauce. I will never buy jarred sauce again. This is just THAT good!

RECIPE: Poor Man's Pecan Pie


Let's face it -- buying pecans is an expensive proposition sometimes, and unless you're lucky enough to pick your own as they fall from a tree, you sometimes need to substitute or go without. Unfortunately pecans, especially in the South, show up a lot in recipes. This Poor Man's Pecan Pie, captures the same great taste without the expense. Give it a go...

RECIPE: Cake Mix Pie Crust (Red Velvet)


Mom's Pantry friend Sharon Jackson sent me a link the other day on how to make pie crust from a cake mix. The possibilities seemed endless as far as combinations go, and I decided to try a red velvet version to go with a chocolate mousse filling.

Mandarin Pork Chops


Every week our local grocery store (Albertson's) has three different choices in their meat department for Buy One Get Two Free specials. They often have pork chops and I end up with 3 packages for about $6. I used one of those packages to make tonight's dinner, which when all totaled fed the both of us for $3.50.  Can't beat that!

Summer is just around the corner and that means cook-outs, bbqs and family reunions. A solid potato salad recipe is always a welcome addition to the food spread. This one is easy to pull together and will have you coming home with an empty bowl. It's also easily doubled.

RECIPE: Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Tenderloin



I can tell when Mr Mom likes something I've made because he wants to know every ingredient that went in it, so he can remember to describe it exactly when he wants me to make it again. Last night I was rattling off the recipe for these pork tenderloin chops before I could finish my first mouthful.

You can make it in the oven or crock pot. I chose to do it in the crock pot so they could cook long and slow and become fall apart tender.

RECIPE: Avocado Buttermilk Dressing



This dressing has the creamy smoothness of the avocado and buttermilk, with a little zest added to liven up the tastebuds.  A winner!

RECIPE: Mom's Pasta Sauce


I love pasta sauce. It's so versatile from the types of pastas you can use it with, to  the types of protein you add to it. I've added ground beef this time around, but ground turkey, and diced chicken breast would work too. 

Easy to make, and if you make a large batch (or two) it freezes well to make those busy day meals even better!

RECIPE: Blueberry Pudding Cake


When I was a little girl, I spent many hours picking blueberries. If we picked enough my Granny would make us a pie. It was always what she did with blueberries, and she made the best for miles around. At least as far as I was concerned. She would have loved this recipe, I think. A wonderfully easy recipe, that has the blueberries making its own sauce. Sweet, but not overly, and best warm from the oven -- with ice-cream if you have it!
