Mac and Cheese on another level

How about some savory among the sweet? Trust me...if Husby worked from the corners and NOT from the center of the casserole, the photo would have been better. But he did add in the nummy green onions idea so I can't be THAT mean to him.Sausage Casserole-1lb sausage, crumbled and browned1 can cream of mushroom1 can cheddar cheese soup1 can diced tomatoes w/green chilies (drained)1 c shredded cheese (your choice really, I used colby jack)approx 2 cups cooked macaroni noodleschopped green onion (optional)Preheat oven to 400. Cook the sausage (try to get it really really crumbled up). Boil your water and cook your macaroni, until just done (al dente). Once the sausage is browned (if it's really greasy drain it, I used Oldhahm's brand and it's got basically none) mix in the cream of mushroom, cheddar cheese soup, and diced tomatoes w/green chilies. Combine. Mix in about 1/2 of the shredded cheese. Pour into a big casserole pan and top with the rest of the cheese, and put in…

Thanksgiving Throwback Cupcakes

Image
I'll admit it was a lofty goal to think I could a) jump into a food blog, and b) jump into the Cupcake Hero challenge all in one fell swoop...but I'll give myself an A for effort at least. The theme ingredient for the Hero challenge this month was marshmallows...so I racked my little pea brain and one of the first things that came to mind when I thought marshmallows...was my Mom's Thanksgiving side dish of sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows...and I do love that...so I decided THAT would be my angle for the challenge. My goal was for the cuppie to be reminicient of that side dish...therefore...Thanksgiving Throwback (since it's March..and not November). Also, I apologize for my lame attempt at staging a "cool" picture...the lighting in my kitchen pretty much sucks in the evening, and I put the cuppies on top of a faux pumpkin. I wasn't really sure how it would work on a Sweet Potato cupcake, didn't have sweet potatoes, so I used SP's good friend…

And i don't even really LIKE berries...

A few months ago I was awoken from a sound sleep with a baking idea in my head. See...I've just recently become obsessed with cupcakes (courtesy of my pal Ms. Yummie -xanga.com/msyummiej)...I've just started tinkering with recipes and playing with making cupcakes...but what I'm actually "good" at...or so I"ve been told...are pies. In fact when the idea was brought up on Pushing Daisies about "cup-pies" I felt ripped off, b/c I had been thinking of that for months before it was even mentioned on network tv!

But there I was suddenly jolted out of my sleep and in a pregnant stupor I stumbled into the kitchen and started in on my first batch of cup-pies.


Husby is all about throwing things away, so on the rare occassion that I DID make cupcakes and I'd keep the foils, he'd pout and say "why not throw them away?" my retort? I'll find SOMETHING to use them for. And cup-pies are just that.


So I broke out my trusty pink-plaid Betty Crocke…

When 2 blogs just won't cut it...

At the prompting of my new blog pal "I Heart Cuppycakes", and to get rid of MORE of the stuff in my head..here is a foodie blog!

So I have the daily b*tchy blog at a locked up xanga, and I have the baby blog...but for those of you who neither want to hear my daily complaints or hear about my baby stuff..here is something to chew on. :)

FFFFOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDD! That's right ya'll we all eat it, we all love it, so this site will be linked to all sorts of OTHER yummy sites, and will include some of MY yummies as well. So bon appetito' as Mario Battali would say!

So to get off on the right paw, er foot I have to share this picture, and recipe. AND I submitted this into Cuppycake's "Fierce cupcake competition" so if you want to go to her site and nudge her to help me win..feel free!
Let me introduce you to Trump, my husband's son. No really. The cat THINKS he is a person, he really does. He routinely sits at the kitchen table while my husby and I h…
