Oatmeal Cream Pie Pancakes

This recipe is completely egg free. Store bought marshmallow fluff contains egg whites, so I made my own. For the Pancakes: 2 cups Heart Smart Bisquick 1 1/4 cups skim (fat-free) milk 1-2 Tbsp. light corn syrup (I use the 33% less sugar variety by Karo) 2 packets instant...

Crockpot Hamburgers

Summer. A time for grilling. Unless you live in Germany, without A/C and 90+ temperature days. A couple of weeks ago, I did steak and baked potatoes in my slow cooker. I forgot to take pictures, but the result was delicious. Anyway, since the steak was a success, I...

Dietrich’s 5th Birthday Cake

A train cake, of course. Thomas, he said, then he and I changed it to James because James is the #5 engine and red, his favorite color for now. To make it, I baked one regular loaf pan, one mini loaf pan, and one overflowing cupcake (all from one cake mix)....

Crockpot Chicken and Rice

I’m not really big on rice, but I thought I would give chicken and rice another try. I combined a couple of different recipes I found through Pinterest, then added some flair of my own. It’s challenging to get my little man (or even my husband) to eat vegetables,...

Chicken in Mushroom Sauce

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided (flavored olive oil can really kick this recipe up a notch. For this recipe, I used the chili oil – only problem: it was too spicy for the 3 year old and the preggo mommy) 1 small can sliced mushrooms...

Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

No doubt some are familiar with this Bisquick recipe, which uses eggs. My first attempt making this recipe with a substitution of sour cream was a little runny – not quite the right consistency, but still tasty (and D ate it!). So for my second attempt, I added a...
