Cinnamon Roll Cake

One of the recipes I love from my mother-in-law's house is her cinnamon bread. She would serve it for breakfast on Christmas morning or when we all got together for one of our large family gatherings. This cake reminds me of that but in much larger quantities.

I have made this for my family a few times and each times it disappeared very quickly. Once I over mixed the cinnamon topping into the cake, it still tasted good, but not as good, just a word to the wise.

Crockpot Chicken Soup

A good soup always makes a nice meal since it is an entire meal, in a bowl. This is a soup I like to make when we have some left over chicken (or turkey) from a previous meal. The other nice thing about a soup like this is that it doesn't take long to prepare, you throw everything into the crockpot, forget about it for about 6 hours and tada your supper is ready.

If you want, you can also serve with some nice fresh buns.  Enjoy.   :0)

Homemade Chocolate Pudding

The last time I made Skorr Cake, I found that my son had used up all my instant chocolate pudding. So I did quick Google search and found a way to make it from scratch.

The recipe I found turned out to be pretty good, especially when eaten warm, but after the pudding cooled it became a little rubbery because of the cornstarch. So I modified the recipe to use flour instead of corn starch. The result is a nice rich and creamy pudding that tastes good hot or cold.

My husband loves cooked pudding and this is a lot less expensive than the normal pudding mixes we used to buy. I think we will be eating a lot more pudding in the months to come.
