Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

Being from the South, I love cobblers. I happened to stop at a roadside market the other day and they were selling blackberries. I used to pick blackberries on the side of the road when I was a kid and can remember my Mom making jellies and cobblers with them. Please enjoy this recipe! If you don’t like blackberries, you can substitute the fruit with peaches or blueberries and it will still be delicious.

Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

I remember my Mom cooking Stuffed Bell Peppers when I was a child and although I loved to eat the inside, I refused to eat the bell pepper itself. Kind of defeats the purpose of making stuffed bell peppers, but I’ve just never liked the taste of bell peppers.

How to Bake Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a recipe I altered that I found on the back of a bag of chocolate chips.  I swapped the butter for butter flavored Crisco.  It makes the cookies softer and more delicious.  These were also baked in the convection oven, which was just as easy as cooking in a regular oven. I would highly recommend baking these for your next party or just for the hell of it. ENJOY!

Cheesey Pecan Pie Recipe

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe, so let’s change that today. This recipe has been altered from the original that I found in “Pecan Lovers Cookbook” as I prefer to use a pre-made pie crust and not as many pecans. Other than that this is a great recipe and a great tasting cheesecake.

Sweet & Sour Meatballs Recipe

This recipe was published in my cookbook, “Cooking with Mom”. I got this recipe from a co-worker who made these delicious meatballs for a work lunch. I could not believe that one of the ingredients was chili sauce. Totally blew my mind and I almost didn’t eat any because I was afraid they wouldn’t taste good. Luckily I was very wrong, because they are delicious. I included them in the appetizer section of my cookbook, but they could also be served as an entrée over rice, which is what I do most of the time. Enjoy and feel free to give me feedback once you’ve cooked them yourself.
