Homemade Sugar Cookies:

I’d like to begin by sharing with you that I made the cookies  featured above, with the intention of decorating them, so I wanted them to be a flatter cookie. When I want flatter cookies for decorating, I gently flatten the dough balls with the bottom of a small plate (or glass). When I want them fluffier, I leave them rounded on the sheet before baking. This recipe only calls for 5 ingredients, and is really easy to make, it’s a great one for letting the kids help in the kitchen. Continue reading »

This Sopapilla Cheesecake recipe is perfect for a Cinco De Mayo Dessert, or for any other day! It’s delicious and easy to make.

Just after Thanksgiving, we had some friends visit us, and one of them was celebrating their birthday. Well, since they were staying in a hotel, they couldn’t very well bake a cake, and you know we can’t let anyone NOT have a cake on their birthday, it just isn’t right. So, I asked what kind of cake they wanted, and the reply was a Sopapilla Cheesecake. I had never made one of these before (though I’ve made MANY since by special request!).  Continue reading »

Homemade Sweet & Sour Chicken Recipe:

My family loves to eat Sweet & Sour Chicken, but there aren’t any Chinese places close to our house (that I am aware of) and it gets expensive to purchase enough to fill up these growing boys. I went on a mission scouring the internet for recipes, so I could try to re-create this at home. I found one that looked like something I could manage over at Joyful Momma’s Kitchen. It was just very recently published (yay for my good fortune!) as part of her 365 recipes in 365 days journey. I can’t wait to see what else she tries! Continue reading »

I saw several friends over the course of the fall football season discussing their love of Mississippi Sin Dip. Some like it served stuffed inside a french bread loaf with croutons, others bake it in a bowl and serve it with chips, and some use it as a topping for baked potatoes or burgers. I was intrigued, so I scoured the internet to find the recipe for Mississippi Sin Dip in a French Bread Loaf to try it for myself, and found one at Plain Chicken that I modified to meet our preferred taste choices.

We were going to a party early in January, and I bought the ingredients to make this. Due to some allergy complications, I wasn’t able to get the recipe prepared in time, so I made an executive decision to wait and make it for dinner, with some other appetizers, on Sunday while we watched some Football.
