Slow Cooker Roast Chicken with Potatoes

    She’s not the most beautiful chick(en), but she is succulent.

Recipe for the Best Pound Cake Ever

Some may disagree with my rather opinionated title, but this really is a special pound cake.  I grew up eating this cake (and have the hips to prove it) and I have not tasted a more scrumptious pound cake. Many years ago in Louisiana this pound cake recipe was handed down to my mother Vera […]
