Buttermilk Sausage Gravy

24 November 2020

This is my husband’s recipe that was handed down to him by his grandmother. His grandmother stated that you must use Farmer John® sausage and bacon drippings or it would not taste as delicious as hers. It was never written down, just a pinch of this and a handful of that. I finally got him to measure everything and this is the result.

Slow Cooker Candied Yams

17 November 2020

An easy and straightforward recipe for candied yams. Cooking in the slow cooker frees up your oven, especially during the holidays when you can’t decide what to put in the oven first. Can be made 2 to 3 days in advance and reheated in the microwave.

Sweet and Savory Sausage Cornbread Stuffing

10 November 2020

I have been making this dressing, minus the sausage, for over 30 years. This year I tried it with Jimmy Dean® pork sausage. The whole family just loved it. The sausage just took this dressing to another level of deliciousness. This will now be our family’s traditional dressing.

Devil’s Food Brownie Cake

11 October 2020

This cake is truly decadent and made with only 5 ingredients. It is chocolaty, rich, moist, and absolutely delicious. I top it off with an easy 2-ingredient ganache but feel free to top it off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, ice cream, whipped cream, or hot fudge.

Apple Clafoutis

17 September 2020

Clafoutis is a French dessert which combines fresh fruit and custard. Just like a souffle, it rises beautifully then it deflates once cooled. It’s best made in a cast iron skillet but any oven-proof skillet will work. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.

Peanut Butter Cream Cold Brew

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

7 September 2020

Every fall I eagerly await this iced coffee from that famous coffee shop. What I don’t like is that it can be pricey. So I decided to make my own pumpkin cream to be able to enjoy it year round.

Mojo Shrimp

31 August 2020

Cuban-inspired shrimp marinated in a mixture of orange juice, lime juice, and both zests to compensate for the hard-to-find bitter oranges. I serve it with white rice, crusty bread, a green salad, and the mojo sauce on the side for dipping.
