Copycat KFC Mashed Potatoes

Copycat KFC Mashed Potatoes

Do you love mashed potatoes? I do and so does my whole family. Sometimes I would run through the drive-in of KFC and pick up their mashed potatoes then, serve with the main meal. For awhile I never said anything. No one knew! I couldn’t stay silent any longer when my son said they were the best mashed potatoes in the world! I came clean and then, promised I would try to make a copycat recipe. Well, I did and now my son says these tasted just like KFC and were great! The recipe is so simple and delish. Make some soon. You and your family will love these creamy mashed potatoes that really do taste just like KFC!

Deep Dark Fudgy Halloween Brownies


Halloween is the time of year that so many of us start baking up a storm. I made these recently when my hubby was craving brownies. I had my favorite brownie mix in the house and added some extra goodies in the brownies to make them “homemade” and extra delicious. So easy to throw these together and, oh so easy to gobble them up. Happy Halloween, Boo!

Flatbread Pizza with Roasted Veggies and Cheese


Recently when out with friends for lunch, we ordered this really delicious flatbread with roasted veggies and chicken. It was so delicious yet pricy. I decided I had to make something similar at home. That’s exactly what I did the next day for lunch. I really liked this one even more! I made it just the way I like the crust, nice and crispy and this time I didn’t add any chicken. The veggies and cheese were just enough. See my shortcuts and make one today. You will love this yummy pizza!

Old Fashioned Chicken and Stars Soup


Growing up my mom would open a can of chicken and stars soup when we were home sick from school. That was her special treat when we were feeling bad. Years after that, she started making the soup from scratch. Once she found the little star pasta, it was an even bigger treat for us knowing this was homemade. I recently found my mom Ruthie’s recipe and now I’m sharing it with you. I changed things up alittle. She made her own stock. I go the more convenient way and use the cartons of low sodium chicken or veggie stock. My kids love my version like I loved my mom’s.

Frosted Chocolate Wacky Cake


You have probably heard of this cake before. It has a few names like, wacky, crazy or depression cake. From what I heard, it originated around the depression when eggs, milk and other dairy products were hard to come by.  It’s one of the easiest recipes around. Can be made right in the baking pan or like I do in a mixing bowl. I added a fudgy and simple frosting to my recipe, but, this is so rich and dark with chocolate goodness, you may want to keep it plain. Also, check out our “Wacky Chocolate Donuts”  They are really yummy and easy to make as well as this fabulous cake. Great for vegans and vegetarians. Bake one up today!

Cake Mix Bright Orange Halloween Cupcakes


This time of year is so much fun in the kitchen. Everyday my kids and I are either baking or making other Halloween treats for family and friends. These orange cupcakes were so much fun to make. My son Josh helped me with these and there was frosting all over both of us after we were done frosting them. Then, one of his friends came over and he was so proud to hand him one of his creations. These are so easy to prepare. Using a cake mix is a great time saver. Also, frosting in a can is just the easiest to color for the perfect holiday treat. Have fun with this recipe, the skies the limit to the decorating.a-little-pumpkin-with-smiles
