recipe  |  old fashioned apple cake

Well, yesterday was absolutely divine. We had ‘First Thanksgiving’. A sort of precursor, if you will, for the big turkey day itself. You know, we just don’t get to eat enough turkey dinners and that’s what makes it so danged good. I’ve been craving it for some time now. Just couldn’t wait any longer. And […]

Hi Kerri! I knew I liked really liked you and now I have another thing to add to the list – a First Thanksgiving! I am one that enjoys this time of year too. I love the smells and sight of Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am even playing my holiday music now!

Your cake reminds me of a great recipe my mom used to make called, “Apple pudding Cake”. I must dig it up and make it because that slice you have here is making me hungry!

Have a blessed day!

Lori - November 18, 2013 - 1:48 pm

Wow! This sounds fabulous! I think I will add this to our Thanksgiving menu in addition to our pies. I always like to have a variety of desserts, and this seems easy, delicious and very seasonally appropriate. Thanks for sharing.

I can smell it baking now….!!!

Kerri - November 18, 2013 - 8:44 pm

ohhhh…and it smells good too. ;)

Phyllis B. - November 23, 2013 - 11:53 am

Thanks, Kerri! Sounds divine (and easy)!

recipe  |  cookies + cream popcorn

Is almond bark a ready made Candy?? in other words is this another recipe I have to make first?

Lynette - July 11, 2013 - 11:10 am

Almond bark is pre-made stuff. It’s wonderful. It comes in chocolate flavor, or just the white stuff (which is in this recipe). It’s basically chocolate you can melt and dip, or drizzle over things. It’s in the baking isle, and the stuff I buy is packaged in what looks like an ice cube tray. So you just pop out a couple cubes and melt as you need them.
And Kerri, this looks so yummy. I may need to pick up some oreos and almond bark for our date night treat! I love fancy popcorns, but some recipes call for thousands of things I don’t have. I can handle getting these two! :)

coconut french toast with buttermilk syrup

  Mmmmmm . . . this buttermilk syrup has got to be my new favorite syrup e-ver! Have you ever had it?It is divine! We made this last night for dinner. Yes, french toast for dinner. Hey, we had eggs and bacon too to make it a nice well balanced meal. So I took a […]

Yummy, but sadly I’m really trying to stick to WW. Once I lose the weight (already lost 32 #s) THEN I’ll try this! What a lovely recipe card this would make.

Susan Kopp - November 8, 2012 - 6:11 am

Your killin’ me Kerri, your really killin’ me! As a weight watcher…….man I am weak and that looks good so after weigh in tomorrow, I will be so making this. Just have to figure up the points so I can track and enjoy!

ana roat - November 9, 2012 - 7:21 am

Hi Kerri-
With regards to the syrup, will it keep in the fridge? I’m assuming it’s so good that it will go fast but my husband travels and most of the time it’s just me at home. I’ll start with a half batch since I’m not big on heavy syrup on my frenchies….

My mouth is watering just looking at the picture!


Kerri - November 9, 2012 - 7:53 am

We do keep ours in the fridge, although there’s just a little container left after five people eat. ;) It’s usually gone a couple days afterwards if someone makes some french toast for breakfast. Or if we happened to have frozen waffles…I’m sure it would be gone.

slow cooker white chicken chili

Goodness gracious me oh my! I made this last night for dinner–for us and for a neighbor that is battling cancer once again. She had two different kinds of breast cancer at the same time and did the whole mastectomy thing along with chemo and radiation. She’d be doing pretty good over the past couple […]

Funny i just made our weekly menu and i had a similar recipe on there for next week. I can’t wait to make it. Glad you posted yours. I love cilantro. And i make my own chicken broth so there is not as much sodium. I love soup, crockpot recipes and soup weather!!! Now we live in northern Illinois and i have a feeling we will experience much more winter weather than moving from southeast Missouri.

Sharin - September 7, 2012 - 11:09 pm

Your neighbor is so lucky to have you to cook for her, help her out, and pray for her. God bless you both.
Your soup recipe is quite similar to mine only I don’t add the crushed red pepper. We like green chili instead. And I definitely don’t add cilantro. When it comes to cilantro, I’m a hater. :P


Lancene Blackmon - September 8, 2012 - 9:57 am

I know you’ve posted this in the past because I’ve made it – it’s a favorite now. I’m so sorry about your neighbor – it sometimes seems that cancer has reached epidemic proportions and your friend has had far more than her fair share.

banana chocolate chip muffins

This look so yummy. I always love your receipes. Hey, I copied you on your quote from Steve jobs and I wondered how you adhered the quote to the magnet board? Love it!

Angie - March 17, 2012 - 1:24 pm

This looked delicious to me too and reminded me of some teriyaki salmon I had at Whole Foods a few years ago. So I made plain rice, the sauce as directed and all the veggies plus salmon in the oven. Was a total hit with my husband and I.

Lara Read - March 23, 2012 - 10:53 am

Thanks for this Recipe! My kids loved it. My 10 year old said you should make this again mom! I think I will :) love it when you post recipes because I get sick of my same old stuff.

Misty K in Ohio - January 19, 2012 - 5:14 pm

Is that suppose to say “this is my happy place” instead of “this is my happy pace”?

Kerri - January 19, 2012 - 5:31 pm

Sorry, it’s “happy face”. It’s kind of hard to tell on the screen. :)

vera rhuhay - January 19, 2012 - 5:54 pm

Misty K in Ohio - January 19, 2012 - 6:47 pm

I wish i had been on the internet BEFORE supper! Will definitely be trying your recipe. I make cauliflower “rice”. And seriously???? I totally have a girl crush on you and your kits in a not weird way, really! I guess i should reconsider that i have an interesting life and get busy with project life. So not motivated these days. Praying for that mojo to come! Now off to your store! Love the wonky alpha and the project idea and all of it.

Nichol Magouirk - January 19, 2012 - 7:51 pm

Rhadonda, you make me laugh!

Glad y’all like the kit! :)

Amanda Mueller - January 20, 2012 - 8:45 am

I love your kits. Downloaded it last night and cut several images from it already they are wonderful!

Karen W - January 20, 2012 - 1:49 pm



Brandi - January 22, 2012 - 9:44 pm

Will these cut on the original Wishblade?

I love them!

Kerri - January 23, 2012 - 6:34 am

Hey Brandi!
As far as I know, as long as the Wishblade can still use the Silhouette Studio software–which it should since it’s the same ‘silhouette’ machine, just different packaging–you should be able to use the GSD or STUDIO files in the kits. If you want to test it out first, there are several freebies on my site that you can access through the Categories/Freebies link at the top of my site there. There’s also the one I just posted on Friday too. :)

Hope that helps!

Brandi - January 23, 2012 - 10:55 am

Awesome! Thanks! I’ll give it a try!

recipe | zuppa di gnocchi e pesto

It’s funny how life works. A spontaneous choice to follow a link that Becky Higgins suggested on Facebook (which is a rare thing for me to do) lead me to Lisa Russo’s site. I took a quick tour and stopped on page three . . . where I discovered the most delicious of recipes . […]

kat-in-texas - January 10, 2012 - 5:18 pm

Looks good, but where on earth do you find gnocchi? I don’t think Walmart has them….or do they? lol. I need to ask around.

Kerri - January 10, 2012 - 9:01 pm

You can find them in the frozen food section…kind of where you’d find frozen pasta–maybe with tortellini. Not sure if you’ve had gnocchi, but it’s basically a dumpling–said in an Italian way. :) I didn’t get mine at WalMart, but rather at the local grocery store. But try the frozen food section, hopefully it’ll be there.

kat-in-texas - January 11, 2012 - 4:13 pm

Thanks, Kerri! I will check it out at our local store. I’ll even check old Wally World…ya never know! Can’t wait to make it–looks so good!!!
