Classic French Toast

Pin It
Mmmm mmmm who doesn't love French Toast?  Everyone I know does!

If you've never made French Toast at home this is a super easy and delicious recipe just for you!

What do you usually make for breakfast on the weekends?  I love to make Waffles, Eggs, or French Toast and it's always a hit around here.

Chocolate Pudding

Pin It
Have you ever had homemade chocolate pudding?

And I don't mean from the box but actually from scratch, pudding?

This has got to be one of the easiest but most rewarding desserts out there.

It was super simple to make, once I got the ratios correct, and is creamer and richer than any box mix around.

Do you have a few extra minutes in your day?  It only takes about 15 minutes then in the fridge to chill. What could be simpler?

Lemon Meringue Pie

Pin It
While on my pie making kick this past week I made my first ever Lemon Meringue Pie.

I have always wanted to try making meringue and was surprised at how easy it really is to make.

I also found out just how easy it is to make pudding/custard from scratch too.

I know most people probably use boxed pudding mix for pies but in the past week I have made several types of pudding/custard for pies and it really is super simple to make from scratch.

I also think it makes a much richer creamier tasting pie than those from boxed puddings.

Here is the cookbook I purchased from Amazon along with my Southern Pie Cookbook ~ Classic Southern Desserts which is where this delectable pie comes from.

Cheesy Ranch Pull Apart Bread Round

Pin It
I don't think there is a better combination in the whole world than bread and cheese!

There is just something about all that ooey gooey cheese slathered on little cubes of bread that is such a comforting combination. Mmm mmm.

I have made these types of pull aparts for years but my cousin Elena suggested adding some ranch dressing mix and it takes the ordinary to the extraordinary in one bite!

Shoofly Pie


Pin It
Shoofly Pie ~ The name alone makes me smile :)

This is a pie that I had heard the name over the years growing up but had no clue what went into one. It just always sounded so cute and fun.

For the last month or so I've been in the mood for some good old fashioned southern style desserts, not that I've had a ton, but they always look so delicious and beautiful.

I decided to browse the internet for cookbooks and while on Amazon I bought this cookbook and started reading it to find out what I wanted to make first.

When I read the ingredients for Shoofly pie I KNEW I had to try it.  It has all the warm spices that are synonymous with Molasses Cookies which just happen to be my favorite cookies.

Waldorf Salad with Honey Yogurt Dressing

Pin It
Waldorf Salad is something I remember having when I was growing up.

We used to go to hotels like the Hyatt Regency for Brunch on the weekends or Mother's Day and I always remember seeing this on the buffet.

I also remember my husbands Grandmother making this when we were first married and it was delicious.

I love a cold salad and this one is perfect for those Spring gatherings coming up and also great for Summer barbecues and get togethers.
