Millionaire Fudge {Granny's Recipe Revisited}

Millionaire Fudge, the perfect old fashioned recipe that will make everyone want to go down memory lane for grandma's fudge recipes.  Millionaire Fudge is my favorite fudge of all time.  It is only the most incredibly scrumptious fudge you will ever eat. In the 1950s, marshmallow whip creme was introduced to fudge recipes by Mamie Eisenhower who changed the whole concept of how easy it is to make, not to mention how delicious.

Gingerbread Oreo Truffles , a mixture of crushed gingerbread Oreos and cream cheese, and then dipped in chocolate almond bark.  Simple to make and yet so decadent. My family is obsessed with Oreos, Double Stuffed ones to be exact.  This weekend we opened our first batch of the Gingerbread ones for this year.   Gingerbread Oreos  are seasonal, only coming out in the stores around the first of November.  As soon as I see them in the stores, the first thing I think about is making these decadent Gingerbread Oreo Truffles .

Crockpot Mexican Pot Roast {A flavorful roast that the whole family loved!}

Crockpot Mexican Pot Roast is a pot roast with a twist, made with spicy ingredients.

The holidays are just a few days away, and I wanted to share with you a great recipe to cook in a crockpot.

Stew in a Pumpkin {Baked and served in a pumpkin}

Baked Pumpkin Stew  is a flavorful beef stew cooked and served in a sugar pie pumpkin. When serving, raise the ladle up with the stew scraping the sides of the pumpkin being sure to get a generous serving of pumpkin.     A true taste of Fall! To celebrate the Fall, pumpkin is so hot these days, and almost anything can be made with it.  When I grew up in the 60s, pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread were the most popular recipes to make. These days that is not the case.

Old School Fried Biscuits {aka Camp Biscuits at our house!}

Camp Biscuits  have been around my house ever since I was a little girl, then I started making them for my children on Saturday morning.  We make them here at the house, when we are camping, and at the deer lease.    These make delicious and quick beignets! Just cut them in half, fry them, and dust with powdered sugar. Another great idea is when you serve Chinese, finish out your meal with some of these  Fried Biscuits  rolled in sugar only .  And you will feel as though you are at your favorite Chinese restaurants.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars {Jennifer's Recipe}

  My daughter, Jennifer   started a whole new dessert adventure with these  Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars . They are sweet and flakey with a  buttery cinnamon sugar crunch on top that melts in your mouth.  Some people like them warm, but my family prefers them cold. It takes few ingredients to make so I try to keep plenty of butter, cream cheese and crescent rolls in my fridge to easily be ready to make some when I need a quick dessert.   Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars   are the perfect dessert to serve with your next  Mexican theme meal.   Here are a few recipes  I like to serve them with,  Quick Enchiladas ,   Mexican Rice ,  Mexican Salad   Double Deckers .   All  of which are quick and easy recipes to  make.    You are going to want to take these to the next gathering you go to.    I really think they would be fabulous to take to a brunch!   I know they are a dessert, but who says you can't eat them for breakfast!  Enjoy!

Crockpot Roast New Potatoes and Carrots {Has The Flavors of a Classic Pot Roast}

Crockpot Roast New Potatoes and Carrots  are one of the meals I cooked a lot while we were in the hotel this summer as our house was being repaired. Cooking in the crockpot is more out of convenience for me than anything else, but in the hotel, we didn't have an oven so, the crockpot was perfect. I usually put my roast in the crockpot before I go to bed at night and cook it on low all night. Get up the next morning and turn it to warm. And two or three hours before serving it, I put the potatoes and carrots in and turn to high. Don't you just love these one pot meals!
