    Sweet Heat Candied Nuts

    Sweet, spicy, and nuts! Those are 3 of my favorite things!! You may have seen these fancy candied nuts in stores in malls, the smell wafting throughout the halls, drawing you into the store or kiosk. When you arrive, your mouth is drooling, tummy grumbling, craving whatever it is that is making this delicious aroma, willing to sell an arm or a leg to just to get a taste. These places know this and that is when they charge you the proverbial “arm and a leg” for a cone of sweet and spicy roasted nuts. Well I’m about to change all that!

    Stained Glass Candy

    Stained Glass Candy was always a tradition when I was growing up. To me, it always looked like the big stained glass windows in Church. You can make this any flavor or color you want, I just happen to make 2 batches. One batch is Cinnamon and colored red and the other is Wintergreen which is colored green. I actually had to ask all of my family this year to see if they wanted Peppermint or Wintergreen, it was a resounding vote for the Wintergreen. This recipe is so very simple. You will only need a couple of specialized things which are easily found. The first is a large non-stick…

    Sour Cream Coffee Cake

    There are some foods that remind us of our childhood, this Sour Cream Coffee Cake is one of those foods. My Mama used to make this every month or so. When I would come home from school and inhale that beautiful smell, I knew we must be having company over or we were celebrating something. This really is such a simple coffee cake but I think because it was done in a beautiful bundt pan, it seemed more difficult than it actually was and of course I’m sure that is why I thought it was only for special occasions when I was younger. Well y’all, I’m here to show you…

    Creamy Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing

    Creamy Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing Cooler temperatures have us craving warm, creamy comfort food. I wanted to be able to have something that would fit that bill, not take all day to cook and was still jam packed with flavor. This recipe fits that bill and was a lot of fun to come up with. Creamy Crock-Pot Chicken and Stuffing came to be by looking at what I had left over in the fridge as well as what I had in the pantry. As I explained yesterday, I always have chicken on hand either cooked and shredded in the freezer or in this case, left over from our Really…

    Rockin Red Beans and Rice

    Red beans and rice, originated in Louisiana and in the old South, was typically made on Monday’s. This is because on Sunday there was usually a big supper after church and it usually included ham or beef which gave left over bones and a bit of meat. Monday was typically wash day. Of course, back then they didn’t have washing machines so washing clothes took a great deal of time between using a washboard and tub, then ringing the clothes and finally hanging them. Supper needed to be something that didn’t take a great deal of attention, hence, Red Beans & Rice! I know these days we don’t have to…
