Kyleighs Cinnamon Cookie Bites

My Great Granddaughter Kyleigh recently came for a end of summer visit with my Granddaughter Tiffany. We thought it might be fun to create a new recipe and do a little baking. Kyleigh is 15 years old and although she is a native daughter of Texas she has lived most of her life in New York. She lives about 1-1/2 hour from New York City. She will be a sophomore in High School and a star soccer player. When she gets home from soccer practice and school she usually has very healthy snacks, however you know what happens at Grandma's (Gigis, that's me) house, sure thing you get cookies if you want them!


Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

I can't think of to many recipes that bring as much comfort as Chicken and Dumplings. This recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings gives the same flavor as old fashioned Chicken and Dumplings without the labor intensive preparation of that recipe. Just put this in the slow cooker and later in the day the magic happens, just add the dumplings and before to long you have a bowl of delicious goodness! This is a perfect family meal and goes great to a covered dish event.


Whats For Dinner Next Week,9-15-19

I get to sit on the screen porch today in a nice cool breeze to make this meal plan. Not only is it cooler we got RAIN and I am so excited about that! It sure helps to get in the mood for fall when it starts to cool off a bit and more of a taste for some awesome fall meal plans. Even Max got excited about the rain and found the nearest mud whole to inspect, keeping in mind that Max is all white, yes it was fun. I need to get busy on this meal plan or I won't have it ready for you!

Thanks so much for coming to the party, I can't wait to see what you will be sharing with us today, I look forward to our party every week, we have such a special Thursday community, each one of you are very special to me!


Apple Zucchini Bread

Apple Zucchini Bread gives me a chance to use some of the beautiful Zucchini from our garden and mix with some apples, makes this wonderful recipe. This bread is very moist and we added some pecans to bring in that nutty flavor to make this a very rich bread. This is a delicious garden to table recipe that will be a hit in any season, but is a great transition into fall and winter. Make an extra recipe for the freezer, it will keep for about 3 months.


Slow Cooker Asian Broccoli and Beef

This recipe for Slow Cooker Asian Broccoli and Beef is a perfect Asian dish for a very busy day. I have been a meal planner since my early days of homemaking and publish our cottage meal plan every week on this blog. I can look at my calendar and know that on a certain day I will need a great recipe like this one to lighten the load in the kitchen and have dinner on the table for my family before midnight. We serve our flavor filled recipe in one bowl which makes it even better.


Whats For Dinner Next Week, 9-8-19

Welcome September and it is coming in with a hurricane and a very busy time. All the kids are back in school now and Friday Night Football will be underway this week, a really big event in our part of the country. Just like the calendar change, our menu's begin to change as well with a little more of a taste for those warmer spices and cozy food. The calendar say's fall is here but our temparture says it is still summer. I can't wait to have some of the old favorites this week as we move into a new season.

Cheesy Potato Bake

My Cheesy Potato Bake recipe is made from the boiled potatoes that I keep on hand in the refrigerator. I love to keep products like boiled eggs, chopped fresh vegetables, boiled potatoes and other ingredients prepared and ready to go in the refrigerator. It sure helps speed the recipes and meal preparation time along. This recipe is so easy to prepare and is just delicious with a cheesy and crispy outside and a nice soft inside. This is a dish that will make a great side for any meal, just be sure and make enough because they will all want seconds.


Retro Pork Chop Dinner

This was one of my Mothers favorite Sunday recipes. She would put her recipe together in the heavy dutch oven. bake it then it would be ready to set on the table when we came home from church. I can still remember the smell when we would open the door, it was wonderful! It is the ultimate one pot meal with all the flavor of a delicious blend of ingredients. As time went along I made this dish for my family and I still make the recipe, it is just one of those Retro meals that we grew up with and passed on to our family. We recently had dinner with our daughter and guess what we had, it was the Pork Chop Dinner, I guess you could say it is a favorite at our house!
