Some Yummy Recipes

I am not a very good cook, but in my desire to become a better cook... and therefore a better wifey... I've been trying some new recipes. Here are a few of my absolute favorites.

Chicken Gravy and Drop Biscuits

I made this for dinner tonight, with organic veggies and chicken broth. Hubby loves it and calls it an inside out chicken pot pie. Perfect for cold days!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

This is to die for :) Just like Great Harvest Bread, but not 7 dollars a loaf! *eek*

Italian Cheesy Bread

Perfect side dish, and I use the bread recipe for our homemade pizza too.

And I love making homemade bagels... chocolate chip is the best! I haven't made them in a while though- very time consuming :)

If anyone has any good recipes that are semi-easy for a beginner like me, I'd love it if you would share them!


  1. Oh, those all look so yummy Lauren! I'll pull together some of my favorites and send them to e-mail good?

    Much love to you!

  2. Those do look so yummy!

    If y'all like potatoes... one of my staple recipes is a potato gratin. (I add 1tbsp cinnamon sugar as my "secret ingredient" - just a pinch really makes the flavor!) I've had more luck, too, with Gruyere cheese, although sharp cheddar cheese works well too!

    The recipe is here:,50134

    Highly recommended! :)

    Much love,

  3. Hi! I'm vegan and kind of an experimental cook still learning how to be a good cook. But these are my favorite go-to recipes--easy and yummy! All have been tested by family and friends and all are favorites. :) -Jess.

    -Shepherd's Pie:

    -Pumpkin Cheesecake:

  4. I don't know if you like scones, but they are one of DH's favorite breakfasts/desserts. I've been looking for some time for an easy recipe and tried this one recently.

    I substituted blueberries for currents and it turned out great the first try.

  5. Hello Lauren Christine, as a sometime-reader of your blog I wanted ot say thanks for the chicken and biscuits recipe, I made that tonight and it was a hit. it's going in my recipe file for sure.
