Cheesy Broccoli and Potato Soup

The breads, the soups, the naughty treats, are all coming out from hiding because Fall is here!!!
This soup is kind of like a mix between a chowder and a baked potato smothered with broccoli and cheese!


Another one of moms recipes, I take no credit...
...except for taking the picture 
{because y'all know what a great photographer I am}
and nudging her to add in the recipe 
{ya, ya! and I am pushy - get over it!}

My kids favorite Tomato Soup

This easy recipe calls for a jar of Mom's famous salsa, a baggie of frozen corn from Grandma, and a can of black beans. Heat them up and if your lucky your mom will decorate it with sour cream and chives. YUMMO!


2 cups brown sugar
1 cup of naughty light corn syrup
1 cube of butter
1 can (15 0z) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla

in large sauce pan, melt butter add corn syrup and bring to a boil. add brown sugar stir well and bring up to a boil again. add sweetened condensed milk simmer and stir until it reaches 228° for popcorn or 229° for apple dunking or 230° for caramels take off the heat and stir in vanilla (don't forget nuts for the bottom of the pan) It thickens as it cools.

German Pancakes

Alright...since my sister STOLE my whole wheat bread post (which I totally deserved because I wasn't on the ball and it needed to be blogged about...
and she did a way better job on the post that I could have...
and her first attempt at bread looked a whole lot better than mine did...

I let mine raise too much and it fell a bit in the oven...
but aren't those hamburger buns just so cute!!)

I decided to get with it and post our new favorite ALTON BROWN recipe...
German Pancakes.

Ooh, doesn't that look good!!! It was. I had it for breakfast. My cute hubby made it. Jealous???


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup milk, warmed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable shortening
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • Marinated Berries or Glazed Apples and Pears, recipes follow
  • Serving suggestion: Maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, sugar, milk, vanilla, and butter. Whisk in the flour to make a smooth batter. Set aside.
Heat a well-seasoned 10-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove and brush the inside with the shortening. Pour in the batter and bake for 15 minutes.
Lower the oven to 350 degrees F. and continue baking until puffed and golden brown, about 13 to 15 minutes more. Run a knife around the edge of the skillet. We love the food network because even in a small kitchen...
You can make something like this... YUM

Top it with butter, maple syrup, and powdered sugar. Or for a healthier side, top with berries, or applesauce.
Even the kiddies will love it.




It think there's one piece left. Anyone want to come over. Better hurry!!
