I think I'll start calling these treats Lil Dubbie's. With a nickname of Edubb that still lasts today I feel like I have an okay strong play on words there? Whatever you want to call them, they're delicious! Healthy? No. But do those ever play along nicely? Growing up with a Little Debbie factory down … Continue reading Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies

This Chicken Chili can be super complicated, … Continue reading *Award Winning* White Chicken Chili
but mostly me 😉 I swear I'm still a 9 year old in so many ways when it comes to food. I still will buy a lunchable sometimes just because I'm an adult and my mom can't say "not until they're on sale". I've handmade dozens of raviolis in a days' time, but I've been … Continue reading Homemade Poptarts for the little kid in you and me
So I just posted how to make a pie and didn't include my crust recipe. Smart, right? My bad. But I will say it's pretty darn easy so long as you know the basic techniques for not over working it. This recipe makes enough for two 9'' crusts (just like what comes in the package … Continue reading The Best Pie Crust (well ever)

Truth, I have been freezing my buns off for the past few days and tomorrow is only going to be worse (apparently). I've been making a lot of soups but decided to whip out these bad boys to munch on. The "blizzard sprinkle mix" had gone on sale a few days ago (because you can't … Continue reading Blondies (have more fun)
It's been a busy, crazy past few months for me so I've been slacking on posting recipes. Part of my New Year's Resolution is to post these recipes that I create so here I go. Naan is a flatbread that kind of resembles a pita and it is Delicious! I love having it on hand … Continue reading Barbecue Chicken Naan Pizza
Feed that Sunday craving. I was lucky enough to grow up in the South with a Chick-fil-a close by. Basically anytime I wanted it (in moderation). Back when they were in malls across the South and in an occasional airport. I'd like to think that I was a little spoiled that way. However... Sundays. Totally … Continue reading Chick-fil-a Style Chicken Tenders
Going to have a soapbox moment, but don't worry. It won't last long... "Bisquick" ehhhh... Just the sound of it sends chills down my spine. My mom would never use it, so I guess she just passed that down to me. It's an expensive version of self-rising flour and if you know how to use that … Continue reading Is it really breakfast in the South if there aren’t biscuits at the table?
