Banana Caramel Cheesecake Pie

Paula Deen has just hit a home run with me. Just received my new PD magazine and every page is filled with either recipes for fried green tomato recipes, which included a BLT with the FGT or amazing summer ice box pies. If she had not been my favorite cook, she would be now. Every … Continue reading

Oatmeal Cake

Last evening at dinner, Randy and I were sitting at the table and since I had devoured my food way before he was finished, as I usually do, I began to tell him about a chicken and rice dish my mom use to make. Getting up to go get the cookbook that I believed had … Continue reading

Blackberry-Blueberry Cobbler

Saturday I remembered I had fresh blackberries in the freezer that we got last summer. When I saw this recipe on the back cover of a Paula Deen Magazine, I quickly got the blackberries out and proceeded to make it.

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

I know I said I would post two healthy recipes before going into desserts, but…I’m thinking that because these have peanut butter in them, that should count for something. After seeing this recipe in my old Paula Deen magazine from 2008, it amazed me that this had slipped by me for 8 years.  Since some … Continue reading

Cappuccino Crinkles

Looking for a new cookie recipe, I came across this one in Better Homes & Gardens Bars & Cookies recipe book.  Since I didn’t have any yogurt, I substituted sour cream. What I can tell you is that Randy and I ate so many of them as they cane out of the oven that I … Continue reading

Rodelle Gooey Fudge Brownies

If you are looking for a deep, rich brownie that really steps it up a notch or 5 from box brownies, this is your brownie. I made these the other day for an open house and they were a hit. Of course, the fudge frosting that was swirled on top probably added a couple of … Continue reading

Southern Pecan Pie
