I started becoming more knowledgeable about the large term of breast cancer, which actually refers to any type of cancer that develops in any part of the breast tissue, when I first found out my grandmother died from the disease. I was effected personally three more times more recently – first, when my mom was diagnosed, then a co-worker lost her fight, and lastly when my own breast cancer specialist had first found a tumor in my right breast.  I am only 37.  For these reasons, I feel it is very important that ALL women check themselves regularly for any changes to their breasts, and to see their doctors regularly whenever possible for the earliest detection possible.

I conquered it without breaking down!  My cousin half-completed it… and my uncle, well, he paid for it painfully, LOL.  Check out the video as you continue reading – View Post

Southern style Cornbread Dressing has always been the go to side dish to add on the menu for almost every holiday in my household – especially Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter..  My grandmother’s dressing has always been my favorite.  Although I can never get it as perfect as she would, I wanted to share with you all how I always fix mine.  It’s tasty, easy to make and packed with flavor!

It all starts with making dry cornbread.  I usually follow the instructions on the side of a container for yellow cornmeal, but you can find it with an easy web search online as well.  Once you’ve got that made, check back here for the rest of the recipe.  Avoid the sweet cornbread like a box of Jiffy mix, it just won’t work.  

Check out the details on how to make this delicious side dish for holiday dinners, below. View Post

Are you up to cooking a hearty main-dish tonight that is super easy to prepare and doesn’t take long to fix?  Meat loaf is my go-to meal.  Paired with mashed potatoes and corn, or perhaps macaroni and cheese and a fresh salad – it’s hearty, tasty, and will definitely fill you up!  Usually prepared with crackers or toast, I personally prefer to use Stove Top Stuffing mix now a days when cooking meatloaf.  With the added spices, it just makes the meal so so good!   Check out the easy to follow recipe below.
