I'm soooo excited about TASTY TUESDAY!

What on earth is this TASTY TUESDAY? Well.... I have a little secret. So criss-cross applesauce promise and poke a needle in your eye? Pinky swear?!


I have a new mystery series coming out in 2016 that is a straight cozy! I don't have the dates yet, but I'll let you know when I do.

It's based on a woman who buys a bed and breakfast on the east coast. That is about all I can say *evil grin*
I want to start collecting recipes to use in the book and a possible cook book! You will get credit in the acknowledgements of course! It can be any recipe, including cocktails, coffee, desserts, meals, anything!

Every Tuesday, I'm going to post one of my own recipes. Each week, leave a recipe in the comments section and each week, I will pick a winner!

In Kentucky, we LOVE our pies....including meat pies. Here is a super easy pot pie recipe that my four boys absolutely crave!

2 lbs chicken
2- 8 oz cans of Veg*All
1 - 8 oz can of corn
1-8 oz can cream of chicken
2- 8 oz can chicken broth
2 cups Bisquick
2 cups 2% milk
1 stick of butter melted

Preheat oven 450ยบ
Cook chicken by boiling or in the crock pot.
In a large baking dish combine cooked chicken, Veg*All, corn, cream of chicken, chicken broth and butter.
In a mixing bowl combine Bisquick and milk.
Pour the Bisquick and milk mixture evenly over top of the chicken mixture. DO NOT MIX, just pour over.
Place in the over and bake for 20-30 mins or until topping is brown.



  1. I got one of my favorite recipes from a bed and breakfast I stayed at. I'm excited for the new series. I've stayed at two b&b's and loved it each time. They have a very different feel from a hotel. Definitely a great cozy feeling. :)

  2. Oh man! I'm going to have to write stuff down as I cook. Hazards of cooking like my great grandmother what she calls by guess and by golly. LOL

  3. Oh SQUEEEE ... I am excited about the new series!! oooh ... I have a granola recipe that is so yummy ,you will never buy store bought again!

    3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    brown ground beef, drain. fix taco seasoning mix according to directions. stir in refried beans, cayenne pepper and chili powder. heat through. cut up velveeta (to melt faster). once velveeta is melted (stir to mix thru), place some nachoes on a plate. spoon mixture over nachoes. add toppings.

  5. Taco Chicken

    1 lb chicken breasts
    1 pkg taco seasoning
    1 jar of salsa
    Shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese

    Preheat oven to 350

    Coat chicken in taco seasoning
    Add a small amount of salsa to bottom of baking dish so the chicken doesn't stick.
    Add chicken to dish and top with remaining salsa.
    Bake for 55 minutes take out and add cheese to the chicken then put back in oven to melt cheese.

    Serve with your choice of sides.

  6. Chicken in Italian Dressing. Take one pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut into strips. Put chicken in two oven safe pans (to avoid overcrowding). Cover chicken with Italian dressing, place in oven and cook 15-20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
