Baked Chicken and Dumplings


My husband loves my Chicken and Dumpling recipe, and he was a little hesitant when I told him I was going to make Baked Chicken and Dumplings.  He could not imagine how they would turn out, and I must say I was a little intrigued too.  

I have been seeing several recipes going around, and some were a little different from others.  Like my husband, I love the homemade dumplings recipe I make and did not want to vary from it.  

The recipes that I have usually seen call for self-rising flour, baking powder and milk, so I wanted to see if I could use my recipe which calls for flour, eggs and milk.  I tried my recipe, and we LOVED them.  I am still intrigued on how they came out like dumplings.  Oh well, just trust me---they are delicious!

Hobo Dinners


Hobo Dinners are a favorite around our house during the cooler months. I have meant to post this recipe, but it just seems other recipes get in front of it.  Around this time last year we were visiting our niece and she served these delicious bundles for dinner.  She is a wonderful cook and hostess.  I just loved sitting at her table and enjoying her taste in food.

Pumpkin Toffee Muffins


When fall comes around, I love to make muffins.  These deliciously moist Pumpkin Toffee Muffins are perfect for breakfast or a take along snack.  We even love them for dessert.

Chili Smothered Burritos {Using El Monterey frozen burritos}



When my children were school age, Chili Smothered Burritos were on our monthly menu rotation a couple of times.  We would have them on a weeknight that was going to be a busy one. We would have them before a football night or a Wednesday night before church.  I always serve them with Mexican Salad and Spanish Rice.  That was what you might call a ritual.  We couldn't have one without the other.  

I remember when my son was going to Baylor, and he would call home, and before I got off the phone, he would ask what were we having for supper.   I would say Chili Smothered Burritos….and he would say…with Mexican Salad and Spanish Rice?  He knew the answer.   

He still request this menu when he brings his family home for a visit.  Recently, I have added Sopapilla Cheesecake for our dessert.  Keeping the Mexican theme going!
