Cherry Chip Texas Sheet Cake

A simple but delicious sheet cherry chip Texas style sheet cake is the perfect way to feed a crowd. It will be a hit at your next party, potluck or BBQ.



      Sheet cakes are the perfect way to feed a crowd.  The batter comes together so easily and you melt the butter, so there's no need to think ahead to let ingredients come to room temperature.  Plus the icing is dump and spread, no piping for fanciness.  Despite being easy, they are not short on taste and this cherry chip one is superb. Bright red cherries, a bit of vanilla almond goodness and a sprinkling of mini chips for a fun and chocolaty finish!

Orange Creamsicle Jello Salad

Creamy orange jello dotted with mandarin slices and topped with a fluffy vanilla topping makes for a perfectly refreshing and delicious orange creamsicle jello salad!



       I have been having a lot of fun cooking what I would consider vintage recipes lately.  So I tried to get some ideas for fun new things to try on Facebook, when the conversation turned to what qualifies as vintage? What would you consider a vintage recipe?  Jello salads scream vintage to me.  So I thought I would make a fun orange creamsicle inspired jello salad in celebration of my (not so) newfound love of old recipes.

Sheet Pan Sausage with Peppers and Onions

A tasty dinner that's full of flavor and short on dishes, this sheet pan sausage with peppers and onions is perfect tossed with pasta or served over rice.



      It seems we have been on a roll of quick and easy weeknight meals with Italian inspired flavors around here lately.  I do tend to go through phases of cooking where certain flavors just sound really good, do you have food phases too? Quick and easy is pretty much a constant out of necessity until either the time fairy arrives or a winning lottery ticket blows in the back door. 😉

One Pot Skillet Lasagna

All of the flavors of lasagna cooked in one skillet on the stove.  One pot skillet lasagna makes it possible to get it done on a weeknight and without a ton of dishes!



      If there's one thing I can almost guarantee is going to be a hit at our house, it's anything lasagna inspired. Or tacos. But mostly the lasagna thing!

Creamy Chicken and Gravy in the Slow Cooker - Guest Post by MiMi

Creamy chicken and gravy in the slow cooker is like making a plate of diner comfort food at home.  It is so easy to make and will make you feel are warm and full inside! 



     I really try to vary what we eat for our weekly family dinner.  With the weather warming up a bit I thought I would make one last slow cooker full of comfort food before we get the grill out.  Nothing says comfort food like gravy and biscuits.

Scalloped pineapple is a perfect slightly sweet side dish to go along with a salty ham dinner. It will feel right at home on your holiday plate!



   Have you ever heard about a dish and been so intrigued that you couldn't stop thinking about it, even months later? That's what happened to me when we were discussing Thanksgiving menus in my Facebook group.

Maw-Maw's One Pan Scalloped Potatoes and Pork Chops - A Guest Post by MiMi

Make your pork chops and scalloped potatoes in the same pan for even bigger flavor and fewer dishes! Maw-Maw definitely had the right idea when she started making this delicious dinner!



     Carlee and I have been after Maw-Maw to share some of her recipes with us.  We couldn't understand why we were receiving any.  It turns out that she didn't use recipes for the things she cooked.  She usually just cooked.
