• Peanut Butter Cookies

    Posted on December 3, 2009 by in Recipes

    My best friend has a granddaughter that we call Miss Miranda. When she was little and liked something yummy she would say: Dee-rishus! So now, we all still use the term . . . and it definitely comes to mind when these little gems come out of the oven. It’s a miracle My Cowboy doesn’t […]

  • Apple Crisp

    Posted on November 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    I got this recipe from a young girl that My Cowboy and I used to work with. I discovered it when she brought it to a department potluck dinner one time. In September, when I buy apples by the box, I make this a lot. I supposed you could serve it with whipped topping or […]

  • Chocolate Sheet Cake

    Posted on October 28, 2009 by in Recipes

    This right here is my favoritest chocolate cake recipe in the entire world. I swear I could eat a whole one of these all by myself! I like it with the pecans in the frosting, but if you don’t like nuts, or are allergic, you can leave them out, and it’s still just as delicious. […]

  • Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

    Posted on October 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    Another recipe from my grandmother that I am so glad she found and passed down. A kid who used to work for me absolutely loves these cookies, and once told me that they’re the best chocolate chip cookies he’s ever had. I passed the recipe on to him, too. I wonder if he ever makes […]

  • Amish Baked Oatmeal

    Posted on September 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    I have a lot of Amish friends, and I’ve never seen them eating this, but that doesn’t mean they don’t. All I know is my kids liked it. Chances are, yours will, too. It’s a great breakfast for a cold morning when they have to head out to school. 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats 1/2 […]

  • Baked Oatmeal, version 2

    Posted on September 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    This version is even more like a dessert, and my kids liked it, too. We alternated recipes so they could have each of them regularly. The raisins and nuts are optional, but you could add a few extra apples if you leave them out. My kids liked adding just a bit of milk. 4 cups […]

    Posted on September 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    I’ve posted 3 different recipes for Baked Oatmeal, so you’re sure to find one that you like. This was probably the favorite of my kids. It didn’t matter if I put the fruit in or left it out. You could also add some chopped walnuts, if you like. It’s almost like cake, but you can […]

    Posted on August 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    My grandmother got this recipe somewhere, and it fast became a family favorite. It’s about the only dessert My Cowboy will eat. You can use any flavor of pudding you have a hankerin’ for. Guess what My Cowboy likes? — one box of banana flavor, and one of butterscotch — he calls it Bananascotch. I […]

  • Black Bean and Corn Salad

    Posted on July 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    This salad is not only pretty to look at and very delicious, it’s actually quite healthy for you! And it’s a good one to take to picnics because there’s no mayonnaise in it. It can handle sitting out for a bit without poisoning any attendees — always a plus, right? 1/2 cup extra virgin olive […]
