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. The recipe is from a Diner in Sevierville, TN and is called Black & Blue … Continue reading

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

Kentucky Butter Cake

On Face Book this morning, this cake showed up and instantly I went to the fridge and took out butter to soften so I could make it later in the morning. All I can say is WOW…it is just amazing and you can make it in one bowl, which is always a plus. The glaze … Continue reading

When Words Fail You, Pies Never Do

I just saw those words in a Taste of Home magazine over an advertisement for Lucky Leaf Blueberry Pie filling. As I sat there and pondered (and yes, I know, I need to get a life more than dissecting and trying to find meaning through recipes) that statement, I remembered that all the years growing … Continue reading

Skillet Apple Pie

All I can say is this….it was the best apple pie we had ever had and our friends who share it said the same thing. The brown sugar-butter sauce in the bottom of the skillet under the crust just oozes the best buttery flavor and you just stand there and scrape all that sauce out … Continue reading

Chocolate Creme Pie

Ok, Eric, here it is….my mother’s chocolate pie we have been making for over 50 years. My son-in-law just called for my chocolate pie recipe and I discovered I had never posted the recipe. This is an old fashioned chocolate cream pie that is always a crowd pleaser, topped with whipping cream, you cannot find … Continue reading

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

The pumpkins are out and am excited to find new delish ways to make use of them. I do remember the first year that Peter Pumpkin and I were married, I ask him to take me to the pumpkin patch down at Farmer’s market to pick out the perfect pumpkin that would adorn our porch. When … Continue reading

Grandbabies & Gluten

In the last few days I have learned several things. First of all I learned that you cannot substitute gluten free pasta when making one pot pasta casseroles. They end up like a pot of mush. Secondly, yesterday we learned that no matter how many grandkids you have, there is always room in your heart … Continue reading
