Snickers Apple Salad

Snickers Apple Salad

This recipe for Snicker’s Apple Salad was given to me by a client. He told me it was amazing. He wasn’t lying. This salad reminds me of a caramel apple coated in nuts, but buried in whipped cream. I’d never heard of Snicker’s Apple Salad before he shared this recipe. It’s decadent. It’s delicious. It should be illegal, but since it contains apples, a fruit, […]

Baked Oatmeal is an extremely frugal breakfast. Feed 8 for under two dollars.

Baked Oatmeal

I have been making Baked Oatmeal since the beginning of our Pantry Cooking Challenge. It’s my new favorite, pantry friendly, breakfast recipe. I love it fresh from the oven, but I also love that I can make a big pan of this and store it in the fridge. That way, everyone can serve themselves a chunk and reheat it in the microwave. It’s a truly […]

Corn Dog Casserole

Corn Dog Casserole

Corn Dog Casserole is the best solution to homemade corn dogs. I really don’t like deep frying foods, but my family really likes corn dogs. I occasionally purchase frozen corn dogs which we cook, but this Corn dog casserole is more cost effective, and it’s tasty, too. Don’t tell the children, but it sneaks in some vegetables, too. This doesn’t taste the same as a […]

Sue Chef’s Alfredo Sauce

This is a simple and fool proof recipe for Alfredo sauce that’s rich and creamy.  Sue Chef and Baker’s Man created it one day when we had no jars of Alfredo Sauce in the house.  This recipe creates a quick and delicious sauce, and once you’ve made this homemade version, you will never buy the Alfredo sauce in jars again.  Everyone thinks that Alfredo sauce […]

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake is another no bake dessert that’s simple and delicious and is sure to become a family favorite.  Creamy and delicious, this is the perfect decadent dessert.  This recipe is similar to the Chocolate Eclair Cake recipe that we published in December of 2015, but since we are making it in our 30 days of cans, we substituted canned evaporated milk in place […]

cheeseburger pie--a one dish entree

Cheeseburger Pie

Since making a Southwestern Cheeseburger Pie during my 30 days of beans, I have been thinking about making another plain cheeseburger pie, and I finally  had the chance today. The best thing about this pie is that if you use an oven safe skillet (like a cast iron one), the whole thing can be cooked in one pan.  Of course, I did need a bowl […]

Easy Nectarine Cobbler-a warm slice, fresh from the oven

Easy Nectarine Cobbler

Dessert is always a good thing.  This dessert is make from a simple combination of ingredients that go together quickly to create a sweet and delicious cobbler with minimum stress for the cook.  I used fresh fruit, but this recipe works just as well with either frozen or canned fruit.   It’s our go to cobbler recipe when we want something sweet. 

A piece of pressure cooker fried chicken fresh from the oven

Pressure Cooker “Fried” Chicken and Mashed Potatoes

The idea for this recipe came from two separate places.  First, the idea for the chicken came from Grandma Lynda’s YouTube Channel.  The idea for the mashed potatoes came from the cookbook which came with the electric pressure cooker that I received for Christmas.  I wanted to make “fried” chicken and mashed potatoes, so I decided to see if I could make both dishes in […]
