Homemade Flour Tortillas

There are certain recipes that make you reminisce about old times. The smell of my mother’s beef and potato soup heating up on the stove with warm cornbread in the oven. Sunday’s beef roast cooking while we were at church for a hot meal when we returned. Then I have my grandmother’s recipes along...

Toothpick Tacos

Is it possible to get sick and tired of the same recipe over and over?  No way as long as it is good food and it feeds my family.  It also doesn’t hurt if they keep eating it and don’t get tired of it either.  In fact we fell in love with these simple...

Creamy Skillet Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes

Every once in a while a recipe really stumps me. Today I’m talking about a southern classic, banana pudding made from scratch. This just happens to be in my husband’s top 3 favorite desserts ever. I personally don’t care for bananas but I’ve wanted to make him this dessert for a while. He wanted...

Broiled Salmon with Avocado and Grapefruit

Somehow, someway I managed to make food this past week and three attempts at whoopie pies. I didn’t let on that I was facing a cold right along with my toddler. Most mornings consisted of putting together my quick salmon and avocado toasts along with 3 cups of coffee just to help me stay...
