No Knead Bread

I’m on a bread kick. I can’t help it. Nothing’s better than home baked bread. We haven’t bought a loaf of bread from the store in weeks. I’ve made Beer Bread, White bread, Garlic Bread Sticks, Hawaiian Honey Bread, rolls, Chocolate Swirl Bread. And others that I never thought to take pictures of before I […]

You know my motto, Chocolate makes everything better! And it does! And you can put it on practically everything. Well maybe not spinach or peas, but you know what I mean. And it’s so easy to do, and fun, and it’ll impress your friends. The easiest way I’ve found to cover almost everything is using […]

I love to bake bread. And I love getting things for free. A few weeks back, on Facebook, Red Star Yeast had a post about a free yeast giveaway. All I had to do was Like them, which I already did and share their post about the giveaway. So Blah, blah, blah, about a week later I […]

So it’s finally cool enough to have soup again, yay! Here in Georgia we seem to have really long summers. It starts getting warm in March, then by June we are complaining about the heat. In July we are complaining about the heat and the electric bill. By August we are so done with summer. […]

Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownie Bars

Busy weekend, son’s birthday on Saturday, Hubby’s birthday on Sunday….. And neither one wanted a cake! What’s wrong with them?

Breakfast Tartlets

I love quiche. But the problem with quiche is you make a large pie (quiche) and everyone has to eat what you put in it. And in my house, someone’s not going to be happy. I don’t want sausage, or I don’t want tomato, or onion, green pepper, blah, blah, blah. I’d call them all whiners but I […]

Cream Cheese Squares-The flavor of a cheesecake, but in a bar and with a yummy crumb topping! I love Cheesecake but the family is just so-so with it. They’ll eat it if I make it, but only because it’s the only sugar offered. And I’ll be fair, I love a slice of cheesecake, But two […]
