grandma’s apple crisp

My grandma’s recipe for apple crisp is so simple and it’s the best! The filling offers lots of cinnamon apples with the sweetness of sugar and a little tanginess from the addition of orange juice. The crust is buttery and crunchy. No oatmeal in this recipe! You won’t miss it one bit. ~ preheat oven…

magic custard-filled cornbread

I made up a big slow cooker full of Texas Red Chili yesterday, and I made this amazing custard-filled corn bread to go with it. Can I tell you how freaking awesome this combination was? Maybe you should try it for yourself instead of taking my word for it. I know this looks good, but…

ham & cream cheese pickle roll-ups
