Look what I Did!

Yes! "I" did that! And it is all from scratch! Can you believe it?

 I made homemade mashed potatoes, homemade stuffing, homemade macaroni, and homemade gravy along with the chicken.

This is the first time I have ever made stuffing or gravy!

My husband only likes the Stove Top stuffing, but it has MSG in it and I can't eat it, so I tried to find a recipe that would taste like it and I did!

He loved it! I loved it too! And I found a recipe that told me how to make the gravy from the chicken drippings too!

This is the second time I made the macaroni. It is so good. it tastes like Furr's!

And the chicken was actually moist this time. I found a recipe from Cooks magazine that told me how to keep it moist.

I cooked the potatoes in my pressure cooker.

My husband bought me a pressure cooker a few weeks ago and I have been loving it. It works so well, and really cuts down on the prep and cooking time.

I am proud of myself. It was all actually really good.

I'll keep you updated on all of the new things I learn to cook, and I'll get you some of these recipes soon! 


  1. Great job! I would like to do this...someday. :)

  2. Yum. Now I'm hungry. It looks like everything came out fabulous. Including the new blog. I'm your newest follower.

  3. My oldest daughter (28) found a super dressing recipe. She loves it...and she doesn't even like any kind of dressing/stuffing. We really like it too, of course :) I'll have to get the recipe for you. All your dishes look yummy!!!! Great job!

  4. Yes, Vickie, i would like that recipe.

  5. Mmm, everything looks yummy! I am making homemade mac n cheese for my peeps tomorrow, it's been too long since they have had the good stuff.
