Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies Fall is one of my favorite times to bake.  And since the Apple Pie I made the other day was a flop, I was in the mood for something sweet with a hint of cinnamon.  After baking two trays of these Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies, I was going to eat a couple to make sure they were tasty.  Obviously, they were delicious because a couple turned into six.   They literally melt in your mouth....

Cast Iron Seared Sirloins

Cast Iron Seared Sirloin

  Cast Iron Seared Sirloins The final recipe in my Buy 1 Rump Roast Cook 3 Yummy Meal series is Cast Iron Seared Sirloins.  While I will admit, this is not a filet mignon, it is a great steak on a budget.  One of the keys to a good steak is making sure it is not ice cold when you cook it.  Also you have to let it rest.  And lastly, you need to cut it against the grain.  Making...

Easy Peasy Crock Pot Leg of Lamb

Crock Pot Leg of Lamb

Easy Peasy Crock Pot Leg of Lamb One of my favorite lamb dishes is Easy Peasy Crock Pot Leg of Lamb.  Well, it is just one of my favorite dishes period.  Since the hardest part is lifting the lamb into the crock pot, you will not believe how incredibly easy it is to prepare.  All you have to do is mix the spices, coat the roast with the spices, drop some garlic cloves into a crock pot, add in the roast...

Meaty Steak Okra Stew

Meaty Steak Okra Stew

Meaty Steak Okra Stew I stopped by my friend Maurice's convenience store today.  My eyes spotted a farmer's basket full of the cute little okra, that are my favorite kind of okra, sitting on the counter.  I wasn't sure if he had bought them from one of the local farmers or if they were for sale.  Of course I asked him "Where did you get those cute little okra?"  He didn't know because they were there when he got there....

This is what started about two months of weekend wine excursions.  Although I was...

Cucumber Onion Salad

Cucumber Onion Salad

Cucumber Onion Salad My mother used to make a salad similar to this when I was growing up.  She added more vinegar and she also added sugar.  I may get my Southern Girl rights revoked by saying that I am not a fan of adding sugar to some traditional dishes that Southern Cooks add sugar to.  Cornbread for example.  My daughter actually prefers the sweet yellow cornbread (I call it the JiffyMix or School Lunch Cornbread lol).  My sister adds...
