Sweet and Sour Chicken with Red Sauce or Mama's Chicken Hawaiian Style
I got this recipe from my Mama's recipe file and modified it a little. When I made it, I realized it tastes just like the Chinese Restaurant's Red Sauce! I had been trying to duplicate that sauce for years because that's the main reason the hubby eats Chine...

Sweet Pea and Cucumber Salad
This is a simple salad, but it is very yummy! It sounds a little strange, but it is delicious. For a change, add cucumber instead of egg and Parmesan cheese instead of Cheddar. It's another great side salad! 1 can small sweet peas, drained 1 egg, boiled and...

Chocolate Buttercream Icing
It's not a great picture, but this is my homemade Chocolate Buttercream Icing. It's an old recipe, but a goof proof one, which is good for me!!! It seems like a recipe gone bad after adding all the sugar. The icing is very dry, but after adding the milk, it...

My son loves soft sugar cookies. I made him a batch and decided to use the Heath's English Toffee Bits I bought on sale and make another batch. The hubby was my test tester on these. After "Mmmmm!" and "Oooooo!"-ing and 6 cookies later, he declared that the...

Simple Beef Stew
Sometimes the most comforting foods can be the simplest to make. I had stew meat in the freezer. I didn't have carrots or whole potatoes on hand, but I did have mashed potato flakes that the hubby bought when he went shopping last week. He also got some of ...

I ordered a box from Brown Box Veggies. Since the closest pick-up point was over 50 miles away, I got my step-daughter to go pick it up from Four Oaks Farm Store for her and her family. They are in love now! They plan repeat trips! It is awesome and only about 6 miles from their house! How is that for convenience? Their young son Jack was amazed at the colors, textures and FOOD! They didn't get a chance to see everything, but they plan an extended visit next time! Thanks for a great experience for them Four Oaks! Lynn ~ Southern With A Twist
