Homemade Chicken Pot Pie (Comfort Food!)

Listen.  There is nothing wrong with Marie Callender's frozen chicken pot pies. They're quite delicious.  But there is something even more comforting about a homemade chicken pot pie.  I love gathering recipes, and this is one that deserved a handwritten recipe card.  Something to pass down.  It's really easy, I promise. Ingredients: 3-4 cooked and...

Adams Apple Cider Slaw Dressing Turkey Breasts

I never really thought of making turkey for dinner.  Turkey is either sliced thin for sandwiches, or it's reserved for Thanksgiving.  That's it. Until a neighbor told me about making turkey breasts that were better than any chicken you could ever imagine.  She said she found them at Lidl, so I went on a mission...

Adams Apple Butter Streusel Muffins

I have always loved bread.  It can be in the form of a loaf, a roll, a slice, a donut, a bagel, a fritter (big weakness), or a muffin with streusel on top.  Streusel is a magical topping consisting of flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and softened butter.  In this recipe I even added finely crushed...

Apple Pie. Genius.

I'm tellin' ya.  Whoever came up with that idea was a genius.  It's been around awhile, like, a few thousand years, but it never gets old.  It's my son's favorite dessert, and my mother-in-law relinquished apple pie duties to me years ago after my father-in-law declared mine "better".  I think it had to do with...

Adams Apple Cranberry Cinnamon Rolls

I must admit, it wasn't until long after Adams Apple Butter became official that the thought crossed my mind that it could be eaten on something other than a biscuit, piece of toast, or English muffin (my personal favorite--you know, the whole nook and cranny thing).  I've done my research, as well as listened to...

Today…I Shall Light A Fall Candle

The fall candle is like my little personal olympic torch.  It holds a place of pride on my kitchen window sill, burning steadily while my favorite time of year unfolds.  September 1 is not really fall...yet.  But I'm calling it early.  Summer 2016 is in the books, the kids are back in school, and I've...

Grandma’s biscuits.

Grandma’s biscuits.  I don’t even have to close my eyes to remember the smell, or better yet, the taste of these little flour masterpieces: tall as they were round, hot out of the oven, and just waiting for sausage gravy, homemade strawberry jam, apple butter, or cinnamon butter honey. Grandma’s biscuit cutter holds a place of reverence...
