BBQ Chicken Meatloaf

A simple meatloaf made with ground chicken and topped with barbecue sauce is a delicious variation to your standard meatloaf. A comfort food for many, this BBQ Chicken Meatloaf will not disappoint. If you're a fan of the meatloaf sandwich, you'll love this recipe!

Milk Boiled Corn

How do you prefer boiling corn on the cob? For me, it's always Milk Boiled Corn. It really does add a rich and delicious sweetness to your corn. It is considered by many to be the best way to prepare corn on the cob.


  • 2-6 Ears of Corn, depending on amount needed to serve

Chicken & Asparagus Spaghetti Bake

Chicken and Asparagus Spaghetti Bake is wonderful for family meals. Chicken, asparagus, pasta and a creamy rich Alfredo sauce......sounds heavenly to me. Alfredo is one of my personal favorites. It is one of those sauces that is so versatile and can be used with any pasta, with or without a variety of meats and veggie combinations, and is liked by most people. Plus it has cheese in it and I'm always in for anything cheesy!!

Asparagus is highly nutritious. In fact, it is considered to be one of the most nutritionally balanced plant-derived foods. Asparagus has even been used for medicinal purposes. We can thank the pilgrims for bringing this vegetable to America.

Fruit Dip

This classic fruit dip is a favorite appetizer or dessert. You can make it with as little as two ingredients. I use three, with the addition of some food coloring for a touch of color. I've been making this easy recipe for at least twenty years. Did I really just tell y'all that?? HA!

Serve this at your next gathering with a platter of fresh fruit, berries and melon and watch it disappear!

Nanny's Old Fashioned Blackberries and Biscuits

Y'all I have something special to share with you. This old fashioned blackberries and biscuits is a dish my grandmother (Nanny) would make for breakfast during blackberry season. Back in those days, you couldn't find berries in the store year round like you do now. Honestly, I don't even know if berries were sold in stores back then. You had to go out and pick them yourself. That's why this was a special treat because it only came around once a year. When the blackberries ripened we would be out picking. Oh how I remember those briar bushes scratching my hands and arms.

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

How about a glass of refreshing fresh squeezed lemonade? It's delicious and a great thirst quencher on warm days. Next to iced tea it's one of my favorite beverages. Making fresh squeezed lemonade is easy and takes only minutes. I always love seeing child entrepreneurs with their pop up stands selling lemonade in summer. Life's lessons can come from something so simple as selling a glass of cold lemonade to thirsty patrons.

Perfect Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Y'all know I love to share easy to follow recipes with you. Sometimes I realize that I've missed sharing something basic, that everyone loves......like comforting mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes are always a favorite for most people. I'm going to share how I make the perfect creamy mashed potatoes every time. I'm not kidding when people are always asking how I make them because they are so good....and there's a little secret ingredient in there. A friend of mine, Kandy, of nearly 20 years now shared this trick and I've been doing it ever since. Remember, it's a secret, shhhhhh....don't' tell.
