Cheddar Potato Soup

This one goes out to Amanda, my former pharmacy technician, who was always on the hunt for a good potato soup for lunch. I used to make a big pot of this soup almost every Sunday afternoon. When my kids were little I used to feed them leftovers for lunch…

Me Oh My It’s a Blackberry Pie!

What is the best dessert ever? I suppose if we asked 50 people that, we would get 50 different answers. But no matter, because I’m sure I am correct when I say that Blackberry pie is the best dessert ever! Maybe I feel this way because it never…

Fruit Crisp

I love a nice warm apple crisp! But why stop there? Why not make a peach crisp, or a cherry crisp? I have made all three with this recipe, and it works great! I do add a little extra sugar on the cherries, simply because they are more tart. This…

Biscuits

I used to read to my son a lot when he was little. One of the books we read together was, “The Magic Thief”. (The Magic Thief). At the end of the book there was a recipe for biscuits. My son loved the book and decided he would…

Crab Cakes

Ok, so I love crab cakes! But a good crab cake is hard to find. Most restaurants use too much filler (cheaper to make this way), and you have to break the bank to be able to afford them. Even if you make the crab cakes yourself it is not…

Key Lime Pie

I called this recipe key lime pie, but I have to confess that I do not use key limes.  I used them the first time I made it, but key limes are so tiny it took a lot more time and effort to get enough juice, so I decided to…

Pop Corn Balls

Nothing says fall to me like home-made caramels and popcorn balls. When we were little we used to go trick or treating, and we always made sure to go to Merle Eastham’s house. She always gave out her homemade popcorn balls and we loved them! I never…

Meat Loaf

I was in the mood for meat loaf today. Another great food you can dip in ketchup! When I make a meat loaf, I usually buy enough hamburger to make two.  One for now, and one to freeze for later. I learned two things today about meat loaf. One is…

Garlic Flavored Popcorn

My family and I were lucky enough to get to go to Ireland a couple of years ago. When we were there we went to a restaurant that served garlic flavored popcorn as an appetizer. I loved it! When I returned home I decided I would try it. Now I…

Moist Chocolate Ganache Cake

My Daughter and I used to go to a cake shop named “Betty Cakes”.  We would always order their spider cake. It was a chocolate cake, with a buttercream frosting, and a chocolate ganache poured over the entire cake.  They would always decorate the top with a white…

Easy Cheesy Rotini

Around here I often need a quick easy side dish to round out a meal.  This is one of our favorites.  I like to use the rotini that is made with vegetables.  When my kids were little it was a good way to sneak in a few vegetables on the…

Salmon Patties

I always keep a couple of packages of salmon in the pantry.  It is a quick easy meal for those nights when you forgot that you would probably want to eat supper that day.  Those nights when you realize that you have no meat in the house, or that it…
