Coconut Cream Pie Recipe
Rich, creamy, coconut. I love coconut cream pie! I will eventually post my grandma's recipe (when I can find it), but this is one that I put together after doing a little research trying to find my grandma's recipe. I prefer whipped cream on top, my grandma used the whites and did a baked meringue topping. Delicious? Yes, but nothing beats fresh whipped cream.
Chinese BBQ Pork Wonton Noodle Soup Recipe
I love making my own Chinese soups at home. It is so easy to just whip up some Chinese soup of almost any kind that it is one of my favorite winter weeknight meals. This is a classic restaurant style soup that your family will love. Use this recipe as is, or modify it to be your special soup.
Mushroom-Free Beef Stroganoff
I know, it's blasphemous! But, when you have family who despises mushrooms, you learn to just deal and re-work your recipes to do without. You will not miss the mushrooms, much.
Triple Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe
This recipe is to die for. Seriously, this Triple Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe takes time, mostly because you need to refrigerate it at several intervals and there are multiple layers.

Stabilized Chocolate Whipped Cream Recipe
Have you ever made whipped cream, put it on your pie or cake and had it just melt off? Want to decorate with the whipped cream but it just won't hold it's shape? Just making the whipped cream without stabilizing it, the whipped cream will slowly loose it's shape.
Better than Famous Pumpkin Pie
Time for us to start thinking about Thanksgiving. The first thing that comes to mind for me when I think of Thanksgiving is Pumpkin Pie. Yep, even before Turkey, it's gotta be pumpkin pie. So, if you want a good pumpkin pie, use the recipe found on the back of a can of Libby's Pure Pumpkin. If you want a recipe that's better than Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie, try this one. It's based off of Libby's with a necessary variation.

Seared Vegetable Medley Recipe
I am always good about planning my main dish, but I frequently struggle to figure out what to make for my side dishes. When I can't figure out what to make, this is one of my goto vegetable sides.
I have a recipe similar to this that I make on the grill as a grilled vegetable medley, but the night I wanted to make that I was out of gas! So... onto the stove it was, and the vegetables turned out perfect. Also great for those cold winter nights when you want the taste of the grill without grilling in the snow!
Try this for yourself and you will love the results. Great for a weeknight, just chop up the veggies in advance and store them in a bag ready to throw on the stove and cook. More veggies please?
Classic Mashed Potatoes Recipe
This is one of those recipes I just have to write down for my son so when he is out on his own he will know how to make basic mashed potatoes. Who doesn't love mashed potatoes and there really are some people out there who don't know how to make them. This is a classic way to make them. Please note there are other ways to make them that may be better, like using a ricer, but this is a classic home style mashed potato recipe.
