Southern Sweet Corn Spoonbread {"It's one of those dump, stir and pour recipes we all love!"}

This recipe for Sweet Corn Spoonbread is a Southern dish from Stacey over at The Southern Bite .    I could make this stuff every night for supper.  As soon as we take it out of the oven,  we can't wait to dig in.  The recipe is so easy to make.  As he says, "it's one of those dump, stir, and pour recipes we all love."  

Queso Macaroni and Cheese {Made from leftover queso.}

This recipe for Queso Macaroni and Cheese came about from having leftover queso that I made for a family get together.  It was just enough to spice up some macaroni and cheese.   The queso is the classic Velveeta and Rotel tomato recipe that is always a crowd pleaser.  I love having leftover queso to add flavor to breakfast casseroles, vegetables, and meat dishes so I usually make more than we are going to eat.   I hope the next time you make queso you will make this recipe for Queso Macaroni and Cheese.   It is easy and quick to prepare not to mention yummy too, and was an excelent accompaniment to the Baked BBQ Country Style Pork Steaks .  Enjoy!

Baked BBQ Country Style Pork Steaks {Ribs} + how to get them to taste like they are grilled outside!

Last week we were in an ice storm here in Texas much like the east coast was in.  Around my house, we have been trying to hurry up Spring so we can get started grilling outside, but with the weather in the 20's and 30's here there is no way my husband is going to be grilling outside.  

Strawberry Shortcake Bread with a Chunky Strawberry Sauce

Strawberry Quick Bread  will get you in the mood for Spring.  It is full of fresh strawberries and covered with a simple glaze. We love this bread for breakfast, but who says you can't have it for dessert with a dollop of whip cream and some Chunky Strawberry Sauce?   I can't wait for Spring to get here in East Texas!

Mother's Meatloaf {Granny's Recipe}

Cream of Mushroom Meatloaf,  simple ingredients, cream of mushroom soup, Lipton Onion Soup mix, oatmeal and lean ground hamburger.  Cook in an iron skillet and it will give the most wonderful juices to make a creamy gravy! Cream of Mushroom Meatloaf is a meatloaf recipe my Mother use to make as an alternative to the traditional meatloaf recipes made with tomato sauce or ketchup.

Baked Texas Style Chili Dogs {Granny's Recipe Revisited}

When I was in high school, I remember my mother would make these Baked Texas Style Chili Dogs sometimes on Friday nights just before we went to the football game. This was a quick way to serve chili dogs without having to set out all of the fixings, and clean up is quick.  What I like most about them is when they come out of the oven, the bun is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside along with the hot dog and chili. They are so yummy good! I made these with some of my Blue Ribbon 8-Hour Chili and served them for a quick Sunday lunch. We had some leftover, and I cut them in half and served them as mini chili dogs at our Life Group Meeting Sunday evening. They were a great hit with the children.

German Chocolate Cake Balls

German Chocolate Cake Balls are just another addition to my long list of German Chocolate favorites.   If you have not made cake balls before, this recipe is a good one to start with.  Typically, you can make them with cake mixes, canned frosting, and dipping chocolate.   How easy is that?  Only 3 ingredients! Valentine's is just around the corner, and these would be a wonderful treat.    These are fun to make with your children and Grandchildren like I did.   We had so much fun making them, and dipping them was the best.   For some more wonderful Valentine's treats, look to the right on the sidebar.

Lunch Lady Brownies

Lunch Lady Brownies , a lunch lady from Idaho, introduced these perfectly rich, fudgy chocolate brownies more than 50 years ago. The Lunch Lady Brownies are my new favorite brownie.  I am obsessed with pinning every brownie recipe that comes across the Pinterest boards.   How did we ever discover new recipes before Pinterest?
