Hello Dollies

You will thank me for these. My grandma used to make these for me as a kid and they were my favorite. I was never much of a nut person and I still really am not actually so I always make mine without pecans, but I will include the original recipe for you guys. You…

Crack Dip

This my friends, is crack dip. Its the easiest dip I have ever made and oh so delicious. A friend brought some to a work potluck and everybody raved about it and basically everyone asked for the recipe so you know it was good. I tweaked her recipe a little to fit more of what…

Lemon Pancakes with Strawberry Syrup
