I dearly love Christy Jordan, her cookbooks, and her website, Southern Plate.
This is such an easy way to make bread! This is another find from my grandmother’s recipe box. I don’t know whose recipe it was originally, because it was typed. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to mix up and rise, and another 45 minutes to bake, so in less than three hours you can have bread! That is quicker than thawing out a frozen
So I was looking through one of my grandmother’s recipe boxes the other day, looking for ideas for dessert for Sunday dinner… Cheesy, huh? My mother said she bought it for my grandmother in Mexico in the 50’s or 60’s. I love old recipes, and I came across this one… It starts out in my grandmother’s handwriting, then it looks like the rest is in
It’s What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!! Last Sunday I made this cake to take to my mother-in-law’s house for Sunday dinner.

They get whatever they want for breakfast, lunch and dinner, not to mention whatever birthday cake, or pie, that they want me to make them. Riley changes every year. This year he wants Crock-Pot Cheesecake, but last year he
When I first saw this recipe, I thought there was no way that cheesecake could be this easy. Not only is it easy, it is, as my son Rob said, “the best cheesecake I have ever eaten!” My son, Riley, turned 15 yesterday (Eek! Permit time!) and requested it for his birthday cake. Since I am an absolutely horrible mother, and since I was out
Has any one else noticed this phenomenon? Of course, I never waste spend much time on Pinterest. I am lying. I am on there all every day. Anyway, I have been noticing a ton of pins on Dirty Diet Coke. Diet Coke, coconut syrup and limes to make it dirty, and optional cream! Adding the cream apparently makes it dirty AND muddy. I just had
