    Simple Homemade Tortillas These tortillas come together so quickly and easily that you will be wondering why you ever bought them from the store. We were just talking the other day about how Aileen’s family goes through Tortillas like crazy which made me think…. “Why are we buying these things? They can’t be THAT hard to make.” We are both all for being able to make something that doesn’t have all the chemicals “unpronounceable ingredients” in it.

    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 actually…

When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 …get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. (But you need to ASK for your senior discount.) This incident prompted me to do some research,…

    Homemade Turkey Pot Pie

    Homemade Turkey Pot Pie Hey Y’all!! Here it is, the Home Made Turkey Pot Pie Recipe!! Well, it took me a bit to get this blog post out as things around here have been rather hectic these past couple of days. Now I want to say that there are two ways to do this. You can pick your vegetables from your garden and cut them up to use, which is fantastic. Or, you can grab a bag of frozen “mixed vegetables” from your local grocery store and use those. Both work just as well and we are well aware that there are those of you that work or don’t have…
