Archive for Recipies- Yum!


I made this yummy popcorn for Thanksgiving.  It keeps sooooooo well we’re still eating on it.  By all means it is gift worthy and taste much better than the canned stuff you get at Wal-mart. *note: just don’t let the oil “pop” you when popping your corn!

Allow me to introduce to you the new link in my side bar… It’s the pumpkin with the title of this post on it.

While on my blogging break I was asked to take part in a recipe blog.  It’s put together by six moms from all around– literally.  One is from Canada, two are from Michigan, another is from South Carolina, ect. I met some of these girls while travelling with Life Action Ministries 8 years ago. They graciously asked me to join their site.  If you feel like you get in a cooking rut at times and are looking for quick, easy, yummy recipes to feed your family with, check in regularly at this site.  I’m pretty sure you’ll get some great ideas that most likely will fit outside of your areas normal dinner fare.

Italian Beef Sandwiches

I guess the autumn weather is making me hungry…. two recipe posts in one day. Anyway I’ve had these delicious sandwiches on my mind and must share!!  My friend Laurie moved from her lifetime home in Michigan several years ago to Arkansas.  Along with her fantastic “northern” vocabulary she brought a great family and some fantastic recipes with her.  These sandwiches are one of her best. They are quick, easy, uniquely different, and best of all YUMMY!  I recommended them for a meal that requires little preparation as well as a party dish.  Try them– you won’t be disappointed.

Really Great Sugar Cookies

Today I’ve been preparing for a 7th and 8th grade girls Sunday school party my co-teachers and I are hosting tomorrow evening.  I wanted to make some homemade sugar cookies with my new pumpkin and leaf shaped cookie cutters.  However, the recipe I’ve used for years I’ve come to be disappointed with.  The dough is yummy but the cookies are just too crisp once baked!!  In my opinion the words “crisp” and “sugar cookie” don’t go together!  Read the rest of this entry »

One little, two little, three little indian…

Some of you know that we lived in Jay, Oklahoma for 9 months of our lives (I’ve got some intriguing stories from our time there). The population of that town is over 75% American Indian. One of the GREAT recipes I took from there is called Indian Tacos. They are so easy to make for hundreds of people for maybe a fund raiser or just for two. It’s a yummy summer dish!! Here’s how (I’ll give directions for 2-4 people):

Prepare all the taco toppings you normally would consider for a Mexican night- Lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, olives, salsa, ect..

Next -Brown 1 lb. hamburger meat. Add taco seasoning as directed. Instead of preparing refried beans add a can of drained black or kidney beans to your browned meat. Let simmer.

Green Bean Cooker

My sister-n-law is an amazing person! I couldn’t ask for better!!! She is talented at so many things and has a heart like non-other to serve those around her. But one of the things I want to share with you is that she is also the best green bean cooker in the world- no joke– in the WORLD!!!! I asked her if I could share her recipe with you and she said “yes.” These green beans are to die for! (not really… but I needed an expression with great emphasis =)) You’ve GOT to try them–

Here’s the recipe- GREEN BEAN BUNDLES

2 cans of whole green bean

1/4 cup of butter

3/4 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. worcheshire ( I can’t spell this)

6 pieces of bacon

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In saucepan melt butter, sugar, and worcheshire sauce. Bring to boil. Set aside. In 9×13 pan bundle green beans with bacon and tooth pick. Pour sauce on top. Bake 30 minutes. Broil @ least 2 minutes to crisp.

* these are so good that I ALWAYS double it when I make for more than two people. You won’t have any left- trust me!

Thanks for letting me share Sarah!
