Chocolate Pumpkin Magic Cake

Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Cake

It was so much fun to make up a recipe today for our friends coming over tonight from church. I have always wanted to try this and I figured before my first heart attack or before all the butter and cream cheese went to my head and caused dementia, I needed to do this. Just … Continue reading

Pumpkin Spice Scones

Mushroom Chicken With Asparagus

This evening I was wanting to make something that I had never made before. We ended up with this really great Italian dinner.
