My mother’s birthday was on Easter this year.  Since her birthday was going to be extra special this year, I offered to make her any birthday cake that she wanted.  She requested that I make her a Pineapple Upside Down Cake.  The only complaint I heard all day was that I should have made two […]

Trisha’s Cola Marinade for Chicken Breasts on the Grill #Recipe

I asked my readers what category of recipes you prefer for me to share.  Overwhelmingly, you requested Slow Cooker recipes.  The second most requested category was Breakfast Casseroles.  This Spinach Mushroom Breakfast Casserole recipe delivers on both fronts since it is both.  I hope to deliver a lot more breakfast casseroles in the future, but […]
