Black Pepper Corn Muffins

Black Pepper Corn Muffins, Southern cornbread muffin using creamy corn folded into self-rising cornmeal and coarse ground black pepper with eggs, and a small amount of buttermilk to bind it all together.  

Many a meal when I was a girl growing up consisted of a plate of summer vegetables and cornbread.  Some people thinks this meal is poor man's meal, but for us, it was spectacular.  Add some sliced garden tomatoes and garden onion, a little chow chow (a southern relish) and we were in heaven.

Stuffed Bell Peppers + a Low Carb Option {Granny's Recipe}

Stuffed Bell Peppers, succulent red, orange, and yellow bell peppers stuffed with a flavorful ground beef and fluffy rice, topping them with ketchup or a sweet, tangy sauce.

My mother enjoyed making Stuffed Bell Pepper as much as she enjoyed seeing my husband eat them. I only remember my mother using the green bell peppers, but the different colored ones are so readily available now that I usually use them along with some green ones too. The yellow, red, and orange ones are a little sweeter, and my daughter, Jennifer prefer them over the green ones.

Southern Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Southern Cream Cheese Pound Cake, a vintage pound cake recipe, moist tender cake, perfectly dense with a lovely sweet golden crust that melts as soon as it hits your mouth. 

My family is a huge fan of pound cake in any flavor.  We adore the rich, dense texture of pound cake.  I think a huge reason we love them so much is that you can quickly cut a slice and keep doing what you are doing.  You might say -- It is a one hand holding piece of cake.  Haha!

Cabbage Roll Skillet Casserole {with a low carb option using cauliflower rice}

Cabbage Roll Skillet Casserole, made on top of the stove with all the ingredients of the traditional cabbage rolls with a low carb option using cauliflower rice.

Traditional cabbage rolls take time to make.  You boil the cabbage leaves and then roll the leaves up with meat and rice mixture.  They are truly delicious and worth every minute making them, but sometimes I just want them to make themselves...grins.

Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Creme Pies

Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Creme Pies, two soft, chewy oatmeal cookies sandwiched with homemade marshmallow creme frosting.  A copycat of the beloved Little Debbie Cookies in lunchboxes across the country. 

A box of these classic cookies never stayed long around our house much less for lunches.  Everyone in the house also loved them for an after school snack.
