Creamed Peas and Potatoes

Today, I’m talking about plain ole’ down home comfort food. That’s right no sugar talk today.  Recently, I’ve been craving some good ole’ Creamed Peas & New Potatoes.  This was one of my favorites when I grew up on the farm.  My mom always raised her own garden fresh peas which made this dish even more spectacular.  I can still remember her making me sit on the front porch and shell out peas and fussing at me, “Now Cindy Ann, make sure you pay attention to what you’re doing and don’t…

Creamed Chipped Beef

Reviews about the recipe “My whole family just love it!! Instead of using jar of dried beef I just use 8oz. thin slices of beef lunchmeat “Budding” and it a lot cheaper!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Very good cookies. I added peanut butter chips. My only suggestion would be to bake at 375 for 10 minutes (instead of 12-15 as suggested in the recipe) to ensure a chewy cookie — after being in the oven for 10 minutes, my cookies had a slightly crunchy edge with a chewy center. All in all, very good!! I made this recipe twice. The first time I followed the directions as written. The cookies were okay but not delicious. My family members at a couple and then I froze the…

Don’t Put Ice In Your Drinks At KFC, McDonald’s And Burger King. You’ve Been Warned

This story is both disturbing and disgusting. The Daily Mail released a report by a BBC Watchdog group about the presence of fecal matter in ice machines at some fast food restaurants. See, disturbing, right?! Several restaurants reportedly failed a random ice machine test when the coliform bacteria was found growing inside! The presence of the bacteria is evidence that fecal matter was once present in the machine. Want to know which restaurants failed? Burger King, McDonald’s, and Kentucky Fried Chicken were among some of them. The BBC group found…

PINEAPPLE CHEESE BALL

Reviews for: Pineapple Cheese Ball I really enjoyed this recipe. I did make one mistake which i believe was not draining the pineapple thoroughly. The mixture was very creamy. I could not form it into a ball until i stuck it in the refigerator for 4 hours. It never really set up they way it should have so i put it on a platter and formed it into a rectangle. I then covered it with the pecans. I’m anxious to make this again. I will drain the pineapple with a…

Stuffed Bell Peppers

These are delicious and flavourful! They were a huge hit at our house. This was the first time the kids had stuffed peppers and they thought they were very neat! Will definitely be making these again soon. Next time I will try these with quinoa for something different. I made mine with a mix of cheddar and mozzarella which made it really tasty! I love the cheesy goodness on top! This could also be made with ground pork or ground chicken. Would go great with some oven baked bread or…
