Cordon Bleu Casserole

This is actually a really simple recipe and easy to make if you have everything on hand. Even if you don’t have the meat, you probably have the rest of it, so it’s a little on the cheap side as well. The recipe originally called for cream instead of the milk, but I didn’t have […]

Peanut Butter Cheesecake

So what do you make when you want to bake something that isn’t chocolate?  Well, cheesecake is an obvious answer, but why do plan cheesecake, why not have some fun with it?  That was my thought process for this recipe.  For our Housewarming Party, I wanted to have a chocolate dessert and something non-chocolate.  I […]

French Vanilla Lemon Mousse Cake

I wanted to try something a little different this time around and make something that wasn’t focused on chocolate. Originally I was thinking of making a basic white cake with lemon mousse filling, but then I made the mousse.  The mousse was good, but after tasting it, I thought the cake would be a little […]

I’ve had to completely make the mousse from scratch. Now, there is […]

Herb Biscuits

When Jesse and a bunch of his colleagues had to work the late shift for the yearly turnover, Chicken and Dumplings were requested and I took them in for the guys that night.  After making the dumplings in the slow-cooker, I felt like there wasn’t a lot of dumplings and everyone loves dumplings.  So I […]

Roast Beef

This is one of those recipes I made up as I went.  I’ve been playing with pot roast recipes for awhile and it always depends on what I have in the kitchen at the time.  That’s actually one of the reasons I like playing with this recipe.  The only thing you really have to worry […]
