German Chocolate Sheet Cake

We are so excited to have friends coming in from California who have become like family. When we began to plan when they could come, I immediately knew what we would be having for dinner their first night here….chicken fried steak! So after deciding on the main course, and knowing the only things you MUST … 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. The recipe is from a Diner in Sevierville, TN and is called Black & Blue … 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
