Baked Oatmeal with berries


This is a super weekend breakfast recipe. I found it in a great Taste of Home cookbook. It tastes quite a lot like warm oatmeal cookies. You heard me….warm oatmeal cookies for breakfast. My kids were thrilled!  You simply mix up the batter, spread it evenly on a sprayed cookie sheet and bake for about 25 […]


Carrot Cake


This is the carrot cake recipe to end all carrot cake recipes. It’s from the Lion House cookbook, and I have been making it for years. Several of my family members request it each year for their birthday. I made this one a couple of weeks ago when my Mom turned 59. Don’t be overwhelmed […]

Chicken Soup


If you need a little something to warm up your spirits today, this is the soup for you. This soup tastes best if the chicken is allowed to simmer slowly for about 2 hours.
