Creamy Chicken and Ziti by 3glol.net

Creamy Chicken and Ziti Made from scratch…yup…I did make this from scratch.  What?  I do that every now and then.  Sometimes you just havta. I made a creamy white sauce and combined it with chicken and Ziti. What is Ziti you ask.  Well, it’s pasta. That’s all.  I used to think that it was a name of a dish or something.  Then when I grew up, well kinda,  I went

Bacon Ham and Cheese Brunch Bread by 3glol.net

Bacon Ham and Cheese Brunch Bread This Bacon Ham and Cheese Brunch Bread turned out pretty good.  I got this recipe from my “BEST of the BEST of TEXAS II” cookbook.  Sounded yummy so I had to try it.  I think I would add a touch of sugar though to make it just a tad sweet.  Not sure why, but when I bit into it for the first time, that

Texas Pie Y'all

Texas Pie Y’all I came across this recipe in a cookbook called “BEST of the BEST from TEXAS II”.  I want to start sharing Texas recipes with the world, and how better than to start with a Pie.  Right? When I read the ingredients in this pie (sugar, flour, eggs, milk and real butter), I knew it was going to turn out sweet, but wasn’t absolutely sure the texture of

Cut Out SOFT Sugar Cookies

Cut Out Soft Sugar Cookies   Have you ever had those soft frosted cookies they sell in the bakeries of most grocery stores?  They’re cake like.  This is them 🙂 I personally like a little crunch to my cookie, but every now and then, I go for the soft.  They happen to be Sarah’s favorite. These taste just like them. A little heads up here.  When you decide to make

Swedish Meatballs by 3GLOL.net

Swedish Meatballs My daughter and grandkids are visiting me and the oldest grandkid wanted to cook in my newly remodeled kitchen.  She knew I liked Swedish Meatballs and wanted to make that.  Lucky for me, she didn’t know how to make it.  She loves to cook and is already taking after me making recipes up.  So, I got to teach her how to make them.  We took the easy way

Pull Apart Cinnamon Rolls by 3GLOL.net

Pull Apart Cinnamon Rolls Basically the same thing as monkey bread, except made with cinnamon filling and cinnamon roll icing.  And it’s in my belly. Jealous?  Well, make some and join me on the dark side. All you need is some Pillsbury Grands Biscuits, the cinnamon filling and icing.  The filling and icing are very easy to make. Doesn’t take long either.  Great for weekend breakfasts. Especially if you have

Pecan Sandies A good friend of the family’s Mom had knee surgery and my daughter wanted to make something for her. Pay back for a cake she had made my daughter.  So, she found out that pecan sandies are her favorite cookie.  She asked if I would help her make them.  And here we are.  Might as well post up a recipe for them. These turned out great.  Melt in

Crockpot Potato Soup by 3GLOL.net

Crockpot Potato Soup Here’s another yummy recipe for the colder months coming up!  Use your crockpot to do your cooking.  This recipe is kind of out of my norm.  You will be making a roux for the soup and that does take some time and patience.  But so worth it in the end.  This Crockpot Potato Soup is good alone, but even better with the toppings.  Add some shredded cheese,

Peppered Country Gravy You can use country gravy with so many dishes. The above picture shows it on my Breakfast Egg Casserole. I personally like country gravy on top of eggs. Any kind of eggs. Fried. Scrambled. Egg Casserole.  I also love.love.love country gravy on some good ole biscuits and especially Chicken Fried Steak.  But the possibilities do not end there.  You could use this on rice, mashed potatoes, hamburger

Fruit Punch Cake Do you like moist cakes?  You’re at the right place then.  I make some moist cakes using my secret ingredient…..pudding mix.  But this…this is extra moist!  Like super duper moist.  The cake was made with eggs, oil, cake mix, pudding mix and then some fruit punch. That made it moist.  The icing was made with butter, sugar, eggs, flour, pineapple and coconut. That made it super duper
