Red White And Blue Meringue Cookies

Red White And Blue Meringue Cookies I love, love, love meringue cookies!  This is a super simple recipe you will see me use often.  In my opinion, meringue cookies don’t taste that great, but they are super easy, once you get the hang of them and are impressive to look at.  These are great for get-togethers or anywhere you want people to thing you really know your stuff in the kitchen.  You can also get super creative with different piping tips and pies.   You can add flavoring and colors

Super Moist Southern Pound Cake

Super Moist Southern Pound Cake I don’t know if y’all know this, but pound cake is a staple in southern homes.  It’s like cornbread or sweet tea.  Pound cake is the base for many, many recipes.  Two of my favorites are strawberry shortcake and fresh fruit trifles.  This is a very basic recipe that I use often.  It is very versatile and you can change it up to suit your needs.  These are also great to freeze for later.  I freeze pound cake and banana bread often.  I hope y’all

Southern Chocolate Gravy

Southern Chocolate Gravy My Mamaw Moore used to make chocolate gravy. She’s really the only person I ever knew who made it and it was delicious! My mother was always quite impressed with it, so I went on a mission to try and duplicate it. After perusing my pantry one day and deciding to use my best judgement for ingredients; I came up with a real winner! This gravy is delicious on biscuits. I would imagine it would be excellent on waffles, pancakes, ice cream, or really anything you would

Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Salted Caramel Cupcakes There are not very many caramel cake recipes out there.  Most caramel cake recipes are actually a yellow cake with caramel icing.  I was determined to make a caramel cake and, well, I succeeded!  It tastes pretty darn good too 😀  If you are able to find caramel pudding mix in your area, that would be a great substitution for the vanilla pudding mix that I used in this recipe.  I am very excited that the cupcakes and icing turned out great for this recipe since I
