|I posted the recipe for Crash Hot Potatoes a while back…….and honestly, it’s the best potatoes recipe of all time. OF ALL TIME! I will accept no argument on that. They’re so good, they’ll make you slap your mama. But then, oh my…….I came across Crash Hot Sweet Potatoes from Dlyn. Oh. My. WORD. Honey, if the regular ones make you slap your mama, these might end you up in prison. They are my favorite! I can eat the whole pan. Barry prefers the regular ones, and I like these best…..but we’re not turning down either of them. And strangely, I never have any leftovers. [Read more…]|
|Man cannot live by bread alone………….but Annie can live by only eating apples. Seriously, this child will eat me out of house and apple. If I’m feeding her apples, I can’t do it fast enough. I ate a lot while I was pregnant, so I guess this is what I get. At least it’s not marshmallows or Snickers. Our house goes through a lot of apples – I usually buy in bulk at the produce market. So, I bake with them a lot. We love baked apples around here, and they are so easy to make! You’ll wonder why you’ve never done it after I show you. They make a great side dish for the Christmas table. And, they make your house smell divine. [Read more…]|
Ahhhhh, fall. It brings an abundance of fresh produce. I love green beans! I could be happy with an entire pot of green beans all to myself. Sometimes I’m not very good at sharing. Taste of Home put out a recipe for how to roast green beans in the oven, so I decided to try it. I’m always looking for a different way to prepare things, especially when we have an abundance. These were so good that Barry and I ate the entire batch….which was supposed to be enough for 6 people. Oops. We were popping them like M&Ms. I think it was a contest to see who could eat more.

Y’all know I love me some Pioneer Woman. Every single one of her cookbooks is one of my favorites! When I first read this recipe, I started to drool and I knew I just HAD to make it. And there is no maybe about it. These potatoes are delicious. This is the way potatoes were meant to be cooked! For the perfect crash hot potatoes, you just need four simple ingredients: baby (new) potatoes, good oil, salt, and whatever herbs/spices you’d like. Get creative pepper, garlic, cumin, parsley – you can’t go wrong! [Read more…]

Fresh corn makes me want to sing! Ahhhhhhhhh!!! And I’m a huge fan of grilled corn on the cob. If you haven’t tried grilled corn yet… please do! Because y’all, it’s life-changing.
My husband loves avocados. Annie likes avocados. Me, not so much. The texture is weird. But because I want to keep my husband happy, I buy avocados. I love to buy them when they’re in season and I can get them for $.68 each. Did you know avocados make guacamole? It’s true! And you thought guacamole could only be bought at the store in the specialty section. Well today we’re going to make it together. It’s so easy you’ll start making it all the time! Your husbands and wives will write me love letters. [Read more…]
Barry and I love salsa. LOVE. Salsa is serious business at our house. Sure, we use the canned stuff but we like homemade the best. And it needs to be hot. If your nose isn’t running, it’s not hot enough. Making your own salsa is so easy! So, take a trip with me and let’s make some shall we? [Read more…]
Are you like me? Were your years marred by the fact that when you cooked rice, it always turned into a big ole blob in the pan when the water was finally gone? I hated cooking rice. The instant rice always stayed nice and pretty, but didn’t taste nearly as good as cooking regular long grain rice. Just how did Jackie Chan do it?
While scouring the internet for recipes one day, I came upon a different method for cooking rice. It sounded odd, but I was willing to try. It worked great! This will be my method for cooking rice from now until the Lord returns or I kick the bucket. I’m here to walk you through it so your life can be enlightened like mine! It’s so easy you’ll say “Well duh. Why didn’t I think of that?” [Read more…]
