Kitty Litter Cake!


Do you love cool and fun Halloween recipes as much as I do?  This recipe is one that I used years ago when I had a Halloween party for my teenagers.  My youngest daughter was born on Halloween 2 years ago.  When my babies’ birthdays fall on a weekday I usually do a special dinner for them, have a small family sized cake, and give them one gift so that they are still made to feel special on their special day.  This year I decided to make this cake for my baby girl for a fun family Read more [...]

First Birthday Smash Cakes – Yay Or Nay?


Have you done or do you plan to do a smash cake for your little one’s first birthday?  For those of you who may not be aware of what a smash cake it, it is often a much smaller replica of the baby’s real birthday cake that is given to the baby to smash, eat, wear, etc!  I have 5 children and I have done a smash cake with all of them except my baby boy that is only 6 months old… but never fear, he will get one too!  They are so much fun for the baby and it is too cute to watch what Read more [...]

Banana Nut Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting


I just have to share this recipe with you guys!  This is absolutely one of the best cakes I have ever eaten!  It is very easy to make and it is super flavorful!  It is very moist too, which is a huge plus in my household.  Paula Deen outdid herself when she came up with this recipe.  I don’t think I have ever run across a recipe of hers that I have tried that I haven’t liked.  The next time I make it, I’ll try to take a picture of it for you.  The picture in the Read more [...]

Skillet Chili Mac

My family and I had this for dinner last night and it was so  yummy!  It is a great one skillet meal (or one big pot for me because we doubled the recipe and I didn’t have a skillet that big, ha ha!).  I cooked cornbread to go along with this and it was a big hit with my family.  As I was cooking dinner I thought about making Mexican cornbread to go along with it, but I didn’t have all of the ingredients on hand and didn’t have time to run out for them so next time I will do that.

Slow-Cooked Pepper Steak

Slow-Cooked Pepper Steak

I cooked this recipe the other night for my family and I must say, we loved it!  It was super easy and tasted so yummy!  We chose to eat it over rice, but I would say that it would be equally good over noodles.  I cooked the recipe just like it says below with no changes.  If you decide to give this a try, let me know what you think!  Also, if you make any changes or additions, please let me know so that I can give them a try!

Neiman-Marcus Cake

Neiman-Marcus Cake

This is an awesomely delicious recipe that was shared with me by my good friend, Susie Hale!  I just had to try it today, and I have to say that it is one of the best cakes I have EVER eaten!  My husband, who really isn’t much of a cake person, ate TWO whole pieces and kept raving about how good it is. If you read Susie’s notes, you will see that you can add nearly anything that your heart desires to this cake (nuts, chocolate chips, candy pieces, etc).  This makes it one heck of a versatile Read more [...]

Artichoke Dip

This recipe was shared with Army Wife & Mommy by one of my awesome followers, Michelle Masino!  She got this recipe from her step-mom!  I can’t wait to try it!  I’ve never tried just artichoke dip before… but I have had spinach artichoke dip and loved it!  The crushed cheese balls/curls on top make it sound extra yummy because I think it would give it just enough of a crunch!  I will be trying this recipe soon and I will let you know how much I liked it.  If you give it a try, please Read more [...]

Cheesy Smoked Sausage & Potato Casserole Recipe


We had this for dinner last night (hubby cooked!) and it was so YUMMY!  I recommend everyone try this and come back and tell me what you think!  We are meat lovers, so I think when we make it again we will add more smoked sausage and possibly a little more Velveeta (I’m a cheese LOVER!) but the recipe is completely awesome just as it is!  This is another recipe that I found floating around on Facebook, so I’m not sure who to credit for the recipe or the picture… but thank you to whoever you Read more [...]
