Sour Cream Pound Cake

Normally I'm not a pound cake fan, but this is my exception. This pound cake is more and more delicious by each passing day. On the third or fourth day it was absolutely delicious served with a bowl of fresh strawberries and whipped cream. If you can manage to have a bit of patience, let it sit for a day or two, at least after initially trying a slice. It just gets better and better.

    1. It might Rebekah but I am not sure what the baking time would be. Your best bet would be to google sour cream pound cake cupcakes and see if there are any directions out there for baking temp and time. Good luck!

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!


Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!


Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!


Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Moist Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Moist and so flavorful, this Pumpkin Coffee Cake can be enjoyed year round and is particularly good with a cup of coffee.



A light glaze decorates the top of the coffee cake, along with a sprinkling of pecans.


Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!


Cheeseburger Meatloaf (Keto/Low Carb)

Would you like to hear what I discovered yesterday? Well, I realized I had accidentally turned off comments on the blog for the past two months. Yikes!

About two months ago I was getting hit with a spam comment barrage so I had turned off comments for the evening, fully planning on turning them back on the next day. Whoops! Apparently I totally forgot. My apologies.


Onto the meatloaf. You get a pretty substantial serving here at only two carbs, leaving you lots of room for vegetables on the side to make up the majority of the carb count in your meal.

Of course, it doesn't have the exact texture of a traditional meatloaf, but I found it to be a great substitute. It is not tough and the diced onion lends some added texture, flavor and moisture. I would recommend going for a fresh onion for this as opposed to onion powder for this reason.


I had this with a sugar free ketchup. Tasty and even the kids loved it, onions and all. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.
