Sour Cream Pound Cake

This is the only pound cake that my husband loves. It his the recipe that his mother has made for years and it is scrumptious! It is sweet, and buttery and has a light crystalized crust! It's just perfect and I take delight in sharing it with you.


6 eggs
3 cups sugar
2 sticks softened butter
8 oz. sour cream
1 TBL sp. vanilla
3 cups self rising flour

Add butter and sugar cream together, mix in each egg, add vanilla and sour cream, then stir in flour until well blended. Batter will be thick.
My husband had just added all of the ingredients at once and it still came out great. So, this must be a fool proof recipe, which is one more reason why I love it!
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until center is cooked all the way through.

Halloween Owl

This guy is so cute and easy to make!
Take chocolate moon pies
oreo cookies
miniature mm's. I only had chocolate raisins, so this made the eyes, but the mm's are so much cuter.
I piped left over orange frosting for the nose but you could use candy corn for the nose. I detest candy corn, so I didn't bother buying any.

Open moon pie, seperate oreo cookie and attach cookies to moonpie with melted chocolate or with frosting. Apply mm's for eyes and candy corn for nose or pipe both with frosting.

witches hats

Witches hats

Please take keebler stripe it rich cookies,
hershey kisses
and canned cream cheese frosting. (tint to your favorite halloween color)
Fill frosting into a sandwhich bag, snip the corner. Add frosting to the bottom of the hershey kiss and stick to cookie. Pipe a rim around the hershey kiss, and make a bow. OR you can just pipe a ridge around the kiss. Decorate as you please.

witches broom sticks!

Very easy and simple to make!

Take your favorite cookie recipe. We used snickerdoodles for these.
and use piroutte rolled chocolate wafers. Pepperidge Farms make these or you can use pretzel sticks for the broom. Roll your cookie into a ball and flatten slightly.

Spiderweb pizzas!

I love woman's day and this is what I found! Please go here for the professional version.

Ingredients needed:
Jar of speghetti sauce
personal pizzas or english muffins
string cheese

One English muffin and cut in half.

Add speghetti sauce to the top of muffin

Add pepperoni to muffin and sauce

Take string cheese and pull apart very thin strips and make 3 circles in around the muffin. Then add string parallel to the circles and your web is made.

For one spider you will need 3 olives

Take one olive and cut it in half length wise. You now have the body for two seperate spiders.

Take another olive and cut in half to form circles.

Take your third olive and just snip off the tip of the olive on both sides. This is the head of the spider.

GHOSTLY Pancakes

I have always been a huge fan of chocolate chip pancakes and even more so chocolate chip waffles! Being Halloween we decided to make chocolate chip ghosts! YUM YUM GOOD!
Her pancakes look a bit better than mine but I am quite sure mine taste better. But, I do just adore gourmet mom! Check her out.

GHOSTLY shepherds pie

A simple quick way to get the kids excited for fall and all its festivities.
Shepherds pie is one of my oldest daughter's favorite dinners. How lucky we are that it is simple and easy to make. Tonights dinner was compliments of the man of house.

lb ground beef
handful of dry minced onion
1 bag (12 oz) frozen mixed vegetables (we were out so we used, corn,peas and beans)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Mashed potatoes.
Shredded cheddar cheese

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add beef and onion; cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.

2. Add frozen vegetables, Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender.

3. Prepare your mashed potatoes

4. Start by layering your dinner, into a 9x13 pan. (the grave yard)

5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are set and mixture is thoroughly heated.

6. Take a portion of the mashed potatoes and put it into a pastry bag. Be sure to have a large tip. Or use a freezer bag and cut a hole in the corner and pipe out mashed potato ghosts.
Garnish with peas for eyes or I used chocolate chips! HEY, chocolate isn't bad on mashed potatoes!
