KFC Biscuits?

My husband has been craving KFC biscuits, breakfast style! 
He didnt have faith that I could pull it off, can you believe that? He kept trying to stop me from going into kitchen and starting the biscuits. He’d say Ill just run through KFC. I replied “Are you kidding me? I can make them at home much cheaper.” I dont know if thats really true, but I made them and they were awesome! Even made breakfast style. I found a copy cat recipe online.

Homemade New York Cheesecake

I finally found the perfect Homemade New York Cheesecake! It is so rich, but so very good! I highly suggest slicing half the size of piece shown here per serving. It is good but filling, sweet and did I say rich? So creamy, the crust is made of precrushed graham crackers, so I took some easy routes. ­čĄŚ I found this recipe at!

Wilton 3D Panda Bear Cake

Here is the cake I made for my daughter this year! It is her 24th birthday and she loves Panda’s! I used a 3D Wilton Bear Cake Pan. I baked a Chocolate Pound Cake in it, and made a round White Cake for the grassy knoll. She loved it!

Sunday Dinner

This weekend feels like a holiday and even though it’s Cinco Di Mayo, it feels like Memorial Day. Today my husband and I cooked up a tasty home cooked meal. Hubby smoked the Ribs and corn. I made deviled eggs the evening before, and baked up some cornbread and a delicious Lemon Pound Cake for our dessert. I haven’t mastered potato or macaroni salad so they are store bought. But boy oh boy was this a delicious home cooked meal!

Flower Pot Gardening Take 2

Attempting to grow a flower pot garden for the second time in my lifetime. In all honesty, I bought the plants as sprouts, and all I had to do was keep them living. Apparently I planted too early. We had two hard freezes after my planting. I moved all the pots I could indoors, and covered the plants with plastic outdoors. Before moving indoors my strawberry plant was flowering and had a red berry. I had a nice looking bell and a jalape├▒o plant, the bell pepper and the basil died along with the strawberry plant. The jalape├▒o plant lost its leaves but still has a green stem co ing out of dirt, maybe I can revive it. The Romaine, tomato, chives, oregano, cilantro, and marigolds are doing good. I feel like I’m barely hanging on to my lavender, and petunias. I attempted to start carrots and some basil from seeds, they were sprouting and outgrowing the container, so I took off the lid, and they all died. 
Today I enjoyed a turkey sandwich with Romaine lettuce straight from my garden! It is so rewarding actually getting to eat what you have grown! Stay tuned for more updates in the months to come!
