Sloppy Joes are a family favorite around here, so I couldn’t let a month of vegan meals pass without creating a vegan version of my homemade Sloppy Joe recipe. The funny thing about Sloppy Joes is that even most of the canned sauces are already vegan, so technically, this could be a two ingredient recipe, but since we’re trying to challenge ourselves this month, I […]
This Vegan Easy Blueberry Apple Crisp is a re-make of one of my oldest dessert recipes. I love to make my Easy Apple Crisp because it’s simple to prepare, and it’s a family favorite. This recipe is very easy to modify, too. I’ve already created a gluten free version of this apple crisp for a friend with gluten intolerance. That version also happens to […]
Baked Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops are a sheet pan dinner style version of an American classic. Both Baker’s Man and I grew up eating pork chops with apple sauce, so this combination wasn’t unusual at all. The final result was tender, delicious, and very easy to prepare. In fact, after some initial resistance to the recipe, Baker’s Man has approved this recipe for regular rotation […]
The slow cooker is a wonderful tool for helping prepare dinner on a busy weeknight, but most recipes are only for the entrée. I love this recipe because it’s for a complete meal in the slow cooker that takes care of itself while I’m at work. All I need to do is come home and serve it. Actually, there’s other one step that makes the […]
Have you ever reached into the fridge to get barbecue sauce only to discover that there isn’t any? You have a few choices in this situation.
My Easy Apple Crisp recipe is very popular here at Patty Cake’s Pantry, and we eat it often. I have a friend who can’t tolerate gluten, and we needed to bring a dessert to her for dinner. I decided to see if I could modify my original Easy Apple Crisp to make a gluten-free version. It turns out that the modification was also pretty easy. […]
Polynesian corned beef is one of our favorite ways to have corned beef. The recipe gets its name from the pineapple juice in the glaze that is spread generously over the corned beef both before and halfway through the baking time. It’s also so named because Mustard-Pineapple Corned beef just didn’t have the same ring to it. Baker’s Man is not a big fan of […]
This recipe is for a sweet potato casserole that is so sweet and delicious that it’s almost like eating dessert. The secret is baking the sweet potatoes before making the casserole because baking makes sweet potatoes taste even sweeter than usual.

When you make it yourself, you can ensure that there are no unwanted ingredients, and you can create many different variations on your sauce. This barbecue sauce […]
I decided to finish out my 30 days of beans with another dessert recipe, the Navy Bean Pie. This pie recipe is not something made by the Navy, at least not to my knowledge. It is, in fact, made from navy beans which are reported to have been a staple food of the US Navy in the early 20th century. This pie has its roots […]
