These buns can be made from any bread dough recipe. One loaf of bread dough is enough to cover all the filling. Either make up a batch in your bread machine or set aside one loaf worth when baking your families favorite.
My “freeze dried” filling was inspired by a filling made by The Pampered Chef. My thanks to the Chef!Continue reading →
Need a quick meal? After making this a few times I realized that I never need to buy “Helper” meals in boxes again. There shelf life is not so long anyway. This Teriyaki

I had a couple of college roommates who were excellent cooks. One of them made a wonderful thick chicken and noodle gravy that she always served over mashed potatoes. I had that idea in mind when I set to work on this recipe. I love the flavor the bacon and rosemary add –total comfort food! –Mellyn Continue reading →

I actually keep very little “cream of something” soups in my house, but this recipe has kept me buying at least a few every year. This is Karen’s recipe, of course I made just a few changes, but my food storage efforts haven’t altered the taste.
This is an adaptation from a recipe brought to us by Natalie T. when our second daughter was born! We loved it and had to add this to our family favorites! I only needed to change a couple things to make it completely shelf stable. Enjoy!Continue reading →
This is one of my all-time favorite chicken recipes. When I serve it to company, they never guess my “secret” ingredient — jelly! I especially like it served with rice and broccoli on the side. –Mellyn Continue reading →

I’m just amazed at how versatile basic ingredients can be! By changing a few of the spices, basic beans and rice become something reminiscent of African cuisine?! I wasn’t sure how the kiddos would react to this one. Surprisingly, both Picky Boy and Little Girl ate it without complaining!Continue reading →
