    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 a soup pot on the stovetop. Thick, creamy, and hearty, this soup is truly a meal that everyone will love. Comfort food at its 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 is this…

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!!!

    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…

    Can’t Eat Just One Gingersnaps These Gingersnaps are absolutely AWESOME!!! You can’t eat just one, honestly, you can’t!! We even call them “Crack Cookies” LOL.
