Southwestern Corn

Ok, so this was a bit of a disaster when I first made it, but I adjusted the recipe. It was way too spicy the first time – too much cayenne. It had a little kick to it when I first tasted it, which was fine. But then I let the sauce sit in the

Ma’s Ham

This is my mother-in-law’s recipe. I’m really not a big ham eater, but I really, really like this ham. Make sure you save the leftovers (including the leftover sauce, drippings, and carcass) to make ham and bean soup! I’ll be posting the ham and bean soup recipe separately. Ingredients 1 whole ham Whole cloves (optional

Cinnamon Rolls

You might’ve seen these on my Instagram a while ago. The first time I made these, I had a food blogger fail and forgot to write the recipe down. Oops! I made them again a few weeks later and remembered to write the recipe down. I forgot to take pictures of them with the icing

Breakfast Minis

This recipe uses the Tastefully Simple silicone bar pan. You can also use a regular muffin tin, but silicone muffin cups would be better because the ingredients won’t stick. These are great to pack in your lunchbox and reheat once you get to the office! Recipe makes about 12. Ingredients 4-6 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
