So, life has been pretty hectic lately and though I won't go into details, it certainly has been a trying period for my new year. Some days I woke up feeling like it was the worst day ever and some nights you couldn't even sleep well to get to wake up. We all have those… Continue reading When Life Grabs You
That's right! We're going DOUBLE pecan pie since I believe that pecan pie should actually have a fair amount of pecans in it and not just a bunch of custard jelly topped with a few little slivers. I got this recipe years ago from Allrecipes and it's written by IHART44, So thanks, IHART44, for sharing… Continue reading Irresistable Pecan Pie

There are literally hundreds of recipes for Salisbury Steak out on the internet. I've tried a few over 2017 and I found one that I altered slightly that was amazing. Of course, when I went back to find it, I could not, for the life of me, remember where it was, so I did what I could, from memory, with some things tweaked I'm sure, and came up with this recipe for it.

So, I had 3 boxes of cake mix, two red velvet and one vanilla and so I decided to try this 'cake mix cookie' thing that people just rave over. I did the crackle cookies which is where you mix the cake mix with the eggs and just some melted butter, roll it into balls and dip it into a powdered sugar/cornstarch mix and bake. Don't get me wrong, they weren't gross, they just weren't COOKIES! They were more like little, rounded cake bites.
