Sour Cream and Cheese Potatoes

17 years ago today our lives were forever changed.  If you are like me you are feeling a little unsettled today.  I can’t quite put my finger on it.  I keep tearing up.  We are a great nation and we have “recovered”.  We will just never be the same again.  I am sharing a recipe […]

Oven Fried Chicken

This is one of my “go to” meals.  In fact, I share this recipe on a regular basis at our store.  We celebrated our son’s Birthday last weekend.  The weather was a little iffy so we opted for cooking inside.  You can’t help but feel the love when you share this meal with family.  You […]

Banana Nut Cake

We celebrated our son’s Birthday this week.  Joe requested Banana Nut Cake.  The most difficult thing about this cake was finding bananas ripe enough to make the cake.  I hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Banana Nut Cake 3 bananas mashed (make sure they are yellow) 2 1/3 cups flour (I used […]

Christmas Fudge

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  The snow outside really makes it feel like Christmas is right around the corner.  My “Claim to Fame” at Christmas is my Chex Party Mix and my fudge.  Many people are intimidated about making fudge. Today I am sharing a recipe for “no fail” fudge. One batch […]

Chex Party Mix–Making Memories with Mom

I can always remember Chex Party Mix as being a staple in our home around the Christmas Holiday.  This year is no exception.  I have already made 2 double batches of this magical mix.  This year my Mom is 88 and she is not getting around like she used to.  She still loves the Chex […]

It’s Turkey Time!

It’s time to talk turkey–Thanksgiving Turkey that is!  Thanksgiving has come upon us suddenly this year. No need to fret.  There is really little preparation that can be made until the week of Thanksgiving so you are still right on schedule.   Take a deep breath and get prepared for the traditional feast. I use […]

Popcorn Balls

There is something about the cool weather that accompanies Fall that takes me back to my childhood.  We always enjoyed homemade Popcorn Balls.  Fall was always the perfect time to make this treat.  I hope you will indulge with me as I make a trip down Memory Lane.  Who knows, maybe this will start a […]

Smoked Pork Chops

Smoked Pork Chops are a great selection for dinner.  Why?  You might ask.  I’ll tell you why.  The Butcher has done all of the hard work for you and you will get all the credit.  That works for me every time!  I paired my Smoked Pork Chops with pork and sauerkraut, smashed garlic red potatoes […]

Blueberry Cobbler

It is hard to believe that July 4th is just around the corner.  I am not one to rush things but this summer is flying by at a record speed.  Blueberry Cobbler is a great dessert anytime; however the colors are especially fitting for the 4th of July. Blueberry Cobbler 5 cups of fresh or frozen […]

Oven Fried Chicken

This is such a gloomy day in May. I am feeling the need for some comfort food. I don’t have to go too far to feel the “love” when I make oven fried chicken. Put potatoes in the oven, make a salad and you have a meal fit for a king–or at least a Butcher […]
