    Best Roast Beef Ever

    Two Southern Sweeties Best Roast Beef Ever When I was growing up, my Mama used to make a nice roast beef dinner at least once a month. Now I’m not talking a pot roast, I’m talking about a delicious, medium rare roast beef. She would make mashed potatoes and a delicious au jus to go with the beef. Of course there was always either a salad or some other vegetable served with it, however, I was never a huge veggie person when I was younger. The prize of the dinner was this mouthwatering roast! Over the years, this recipe has completely intimidated me! I don’t think that I have ever…

    Butter Ball Cookies

    Two Southern Sweeties Butter Ball Cookies Our Butter Ball Cookies are buttery mounds of goodness with chopped nuts inside and rolled in powdered sugar. They are fantastic for tea parties, Christmas cookies and even just everyday treats. These have been a traditional Christmas cookie in our home since I was a little girl. I used to love helping my Mom roll them in the powdered sugar when they were still warm out of the oven. Of course, a few always managed to pop into my mouth. One of the reasons I love making these at Christmas is that I always make dozens of cookies and candies to mail out to…

    Instant Pot Split Pea And Ham Soup

    Two Southern Sweeties Instant Pot Split Pea and Ham Soup This split pea and ham soup is so easy and delicious. You can make it using either a pressure cooker ( I use an Instant Pot that I love), slow cooker or in a soup pot on the stove top. Thick, creamy and hearty, this soup is truly a meal that everyone will love. Comfort food at it’s best. If y’all are like me, whenever we make ham I put the bone in a Ziploc bag and put it in the freezer. This helps me to always have a good base for many different types of soup, however, my favorite…

This recipe comes from my Mama, or Nonni as my children call her. She is the absolute best cook I have ever met. So when she told me she had this recipe for Snickerdoodles I KNEW they…

    Easy Baked Brown Rice

    This easy baked brown rice is a staple that everyone should have in your refrigerator. Ok, I admit it, I am a carb fanatic!!! I have been trying to eat a bit healthier and these past several years, I just haven’t been able to¬†wrap my tongue around “brown rice” …UNTIL NOW!!! This is very flavorful and almost tastes like white rice. It works well with everything, including eating it plain right out of a bowl (one of my favorite ways, truth be told. When you keep a pan of this in the fridge you can easily add it to a soup or a stew. It is also great to warm…

    Fruity Cookies

    I know, “Fruity Cookies” sounds a bit funny. I am really not sure where the name came from, possibly my Mama, but I just love saying it. These have been a tradition in my family at Christmas time since, well since I can remember. Fruit Cake is one of my very least favorite Christmas treats, although my husband absolutely loves it. These little cookies resemble them ever so slightly, however, I don’t believe I have met someone yet that has not loved these. They are also terrific to enjoy while dipping into a hot cup of coffee. I really hope that you will make a batch and try them. I…
