Chilies and Queso Skillet

I love this Chilies and Queso Skillet , it is easy to put together and stays in the same skillet for serving. South of the border Mexican flavors from a special blend of peppers and season set this dish apart from the average Tex Mex recipe. If you don't want to use it as a dip, just put it between two tortillas, warm in a skillet it makes a fabulous Quesadilla. Serve it on the top of chicken or steak, these flavors will make any dish special. We love this versatile skillet full of goodness and hope you will too.

Spanish Rice Casserole

My Mother made the best Spanish Rice and growing up it was one of my favorites. When I went out on my own and married I began to make my Mothers Spanish Rice and I just kept adding to it, so today it has become Spanish Rice Casserole. I still love this casserole it is so full of flavor and it freezes for up to 3 months. This casserole is still one of my favorites and sure hope that you enjoy it.

My fantastic designer Elle Ay Esse from Pink Flame Designs made these awesome changes for me. I would love for you to look around and enjoy all the new features that we have installed. I had so much fun working with her, she is such a gifted and talented young woman. Now you know now why I have been so busy, getting this surprise ready for all of you.

I am sharing my Sunday Roast with all of you today and sure hope you enjoy our old family recipe. I can't wait to see what you have in your basket today so lets get this party started!

Rosemary Potato Casserole

Rosemary Potato Casserole is a great casserole that can be made with fresh mashed potatoes or left over mashed potatoes. It has a great flavor and is a real comfort dish. I have taken this potato dish to many covered dish functions and don't recall bringing home any left overs. Through the years we have used different herbs and seasons but the rosemary is one our favorites. I am very happy to share one of our favorites with you today and sure hope you enjoy it.
