Bananas & Cream

Bananas & Cream

I am always up for pudding but I always go for this recipe when looking for something simple but impressive.  Not a lick of pudding in there but it makes for a great dessert that will surely have folks talking. Bananas & Cream ½ - 1 (12 oz.) can Lemonade Concentrate 32 oz. Whipped...

7Up Cake

7Up Cake

When I got my lap-band, baking slowed down a bit.  A gastric surgery will do that to you.  Bready, airy, or ‘soft’ foods just take up space in my little pouch and tend to swell very uncomfortably.  But, my family missed the sweets that used to come out of the oven and the fighting that...

SPB & B Cheesecake Smoothie

SPB & B Cheesecake Smoothie

(Re-post) Don't know if you guys know this, but a few years back I went through with the Lap-Band procedure. On my journey of weight loss and keeping it off, I had to come up with some tolerable smoothie recipes to quench my sweet tooth while keeping my calories and carbs in check. Sometimes I do...

Slow Cooked Chicken & Sausage Jambalaya

Slow Cooked Chicken & Sausage Jambalaya

Bonus Post! Since I missed Monday due to a bout of illness, here is a little extra for your pleasure. One of my favorite things to do to save time for dinner is throw it all in the slow cooker.  Most of the time I still have to cook up something just a bit before putting it in there but no harm...

Bread Pudding & Amaretto Sauce

Bread Pudding & Amaretto Sauce

 Here is an old recipe I wanted...no...needed on this new blog. I love just about anything pudding, so whenever I make this there has to be a party going on to make sure I won’t eat it all. Amaretto is also an acquired taste for me. I really don't like it when it stands alone, but when...

Praline Pound Cake

Praline Pound Cake

Just a little late, but I still made it on Monday! Here is a super fun recipe for Praline Pound Cake.  It gets the flavor from that good ol' Praline Pecan liqueur! I ran across it at Total Wine over in Kennesaw, Georgia. They have everything in there, so I recommend everyone to make at lease one...

Sweet Home Kahlua

Sweet Home Kahlua

A little over two years ago I decided to take on a big project of making different kinds of coffee liqueur.  It has been a constant item in my pantry ever since. I love Kahlua and figured that since there were so many recipes out there I should experiment myself.  Out of that experiment I...

Caramel Pound Cake

Caramel Pound Cake

Hello world! This is the first post on my new blog! I'm not new at blogging and all, but it took me a long time to get my mind right. Pulling together and creating one blog dedicated to a small amount of things was actually hard for my scattered mind. Going off into tangents is a talent of mine...
