Adam’s Bottled Cranberry Sauce, makes 10 pints

This recipe was developed by MyHandsomeHusband. He is a wiz with all kinds of sauces and gravy’s. I am often calling him into the kitchen to help me season up all kinds of things. Just another one of his talents.  How does one guy end up with so many? Just lucky, I guess. This recipe is […]

Cheese and Vegetable Soup

This has been a Willahan family favorite for years. I never take it anywhere that I’m not asked for the recipe. It is a wonderful recipe that turns out great every time. There are no instructions for this one that say vague things like…”salt and pepper to taste”, or add “about this much water”. Nope. None […]

Lion House Cheesecake

This is a wonderful recipe I have made many times. You definitely want to use a spring form pan. I have used both a 9 and a 10 inch. The 9 works a bit better, the cheesecake obviously ends up thicker. I know Wal mart usually carries a package of three spring form pans for […]

Whole Wheat Muffins

Put away your Kitchen Aid Mixer,  and say good bye to the Bosch, baby. All you need for this fabulous dinner addition is a bowl, a wooden spoon,  some BASIC baking ingredients, and about 25 minutes. I received this recipe from my sweet friend Julie earlier today. They sounded good (and fast) so I made […]

Stuffing Chicken

 This is a recipe I make at least once a month. The kids really enjoy it….and my husband adores it. So, it gets put on the menu a lot. It’s great to make this time of year, as Stove Top Stuffing is usually on sale. I like to purchase a whole slew of boxes and keep […]

Peanut Butter Pie

 If you are a lover of peanut butter and chocolate….then this delectable pie is for you. We are indeed approaching the great pie making season of the year. This one is a piece of cake to make. Well, a piece of pie actually. Thanks to my sweet friend Trisha for having a birthday and being […]

Lion House Honey Butter

This is the real stuff guys. Nothing low-cat, low-fat about this delectable delight. Put a dollop on the Holiday Crescent Rolls I posted yesterday, and you’ll think you have died and gone to HEAVEN, and I’m not even kidding. You’ll want to be sure and start with softened butter, and give yourself about 3-5 hours […]

Holiday Crescent Rolls

When I was going to the University of Utah I worked at The Lion House. For you out of state-rs, its a wedding reception/banquet dinner kind of joint. They have the most FABULOUS bakery. Fabulous for the pallet, not so fabulous for the hips…if you get my drift. The dinner rolls there are pretty much […]

Moogie Mush, cracked wheat cereal

So you may be thinking….what in the world is a Moogie, and what does it have to do with mush? Well, all I can tell you is that this cracked wheat cereal is a recipe my father in law made for his kids a lot when they were growing up. He lived for 2 years […]

Southwest Black Bean Chicken in the Crock Pot

  Ok….allrighty then. Who has piles and piles of chocolate candy bars lurking around every corner……just waiting, hoping to have the chance to add themselves to your hips. I know I do and after all the sampling I did yesterday (everyone should get to sample some great treats on Halloween, who are we kidding here) […]
