Chicken and Dressing, A Southern Holiday Favorite

This is a favorite of a lot of Southern families during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. This recipe has been passed down through my family for years probably, I however, did change it up a little bit. I have 2 toddlers, and this takes about an hour or a little more to prepare everything, because of that I changed it a little bit. So, this is how I do it in my home, not how my grandmothers and my own mom make it.  To prepare you in advance, you will end up with a butt load of dishes to do as you prepare this. I suggest washing as you go, if not….it’s a nightmare.  Continue reading

Pumpkin Bread

Finally back after a trip to see family in Alabama.  Great thing about coming back is it feels like Fall finally here in NC and puts me in a baking mood. So with this beautiful weather we’re having and baking season, I started with Pumpkin Bread.  I must say, I was terrified of how it would turn out. I’ve never made it before or any other kind of bread. This turned out amazing!! It tasted great and was melt in your mouth moist!

The picture below is from google images, I’m bad and didn’t take a picture and now ours is almost gone.

Low Country Grill Recipe

Since labor day weekend is a big grilling weekend, I thought I’d share this recipe. I’ve never made this before or even heard of it before but we will be grilling this one day this weekend. This recipe was at the back of this little magazine our electric company sends out once a month. From time to time, they will have some very tasty looking ones.

This photo is not mine, seeing as how I have not made it yet. This photo is courtesy of Taste of Home’s website. Continue reading

Oreo Cake

This cake is a HUGE hit whenever I make it. I don’t have a photo of it right now, I did but I can’t find it anywhere on my computer. I promise though, I will post a photo later on. 🙂  For now, a google image of the cake mix I use for this cake will have to do.

 

What you will need:

  • Chocolate Fudge cake mix ( or any chocolate cake mix, chocolate fudge is my favorite for this)
  • cool whip
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • oreos (crushed)
First, prepare your cake mix according to the directions on the box. Once it’s finished baking, as soon as you pull it out of the oven, use a butter knife or fork and poke holes all over the top of the cake. I always poke TONS of holes so that the sweetened condensed milk can seep throughout the cake. Once you have poked holes all over the top, pour your sweetened condensed milk all over the top, immediately move to the refrigerator. Let cool in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Once it’s cooled, top with cool whip and crushed oreos. Return to the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat it! I don’t recommend leaving it out for long periods of time, as it is best cooled. Enjoy 🙂
