Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate and strawberry bliss! My Mom's "magical" jello popped into my mind. She used to make jello squares and pour heavy cream into the jello mix (including water); placed them in the refrigerator and a couple hours later, 2 tone jello... creamy on top and jello on the bottom. Our family and friends used to… Continue reading Chocolate Mousse

Slow Cooked Pot Roast

Cooked with love? .... in a large electrical pot. Lol. A little morning prep work, place everything into the cooker, clean up & set a timer. Go to work, run errands, play with the kids, your fur babies, exercise, go brunching or whatever your heart desires.

Sicilian Chicken Soup

Fall is my favorite season!

Creamy Cole Slaw

This is my Grandmom's recipe --- I can hear her southern accent calling it "slaw". Her laugh was contagious, stories were funny and her slaw was a tradition passed down. I love a side of good coleslaw with seafood, ham, burgers, ribs (anything barbecue) and Thanksgiving dinner. For our family, Grandmom's slaw became a holiday… Continue reading Creamy Cole Slaw

Smokey Gouda Mac n’ Cheese

Cheese...yes please! Smoked gouda might just be my new favorite. A creamy texture and hickory flavor that melts beautifully. I've made the same 5 cheese macaroni n' cheese recipe for years...thanks to Patti LaBelle. It is delicious however, it's time to switch it up. A tad reluctant while whisking the flour & butter. It crossed… Continue reading Smokey Gouda Mac n’ Cheese
