10 Facts Friday


1. My favorite cookie is a sugar cookie with icing. Here is my favorite recipe.

Soft, Sour Cream Cut-Out Sugar Cookies. These are simply the best! A signature family recipe for 25+ years.

2. My favorite restaurant is Texas Roadhouse. I always order the house salad with Italian dressing (they have the best Italian dressing) and a baked potato. Sometimes I order a 6 oz steak with it. This is my absolute favorite restaurant meal. The rolls just make it all come together.

3. For each of our birthdays my mom cooks us a birthday dinner. I always pick fried pork chops, fried potatoes, homemade biscuits, sliced tomatoes, pinto beans, and gravy made from the grease from the pork chops. 

4. My favorite ice cream is vanilla with hot fudge with cherries and salted pecans.

5. The day my mom broke her leg and knee I made  this crock pot chicken Parmesan recipe. We were about to eat when I got the call. I never even got to taste it but Jeremy said it was good.

6. My mom makes the best banana pudding from scratch.

7. I HATE milk, sour cream, and ranch (gasp!)

8. I really love green beans. I like to cook them with purple onion and garlic. I also like them wrapped in bacon with a butter/brown sugar/garlic mix on top. 

9. The easiest meal for me to cook is chicken and dumplings. We all love it, it's cheap, and pretty easy to make.

10. The perfect breakfast has a little sweet and meat. Give me sourdough French Toast with sausage every morning.


  1. Okay, now I want to eat like everything on this list. Jon used to make the BEST fried porkchops with rice and gravy. Probably one of the things I miss most. ;) I also hate ranch, except with cheese fries. I love sausage and biscuits with white gravy for breakfast. So good. I've never made chicken and dumplings, it always seems so intimidating to me.

  2. I really really want to eat all of this yumminess. Mmmmm!!

  3. You like the same type of food I all sounds super southern! Fried everything, steaks, chicken and dumplings...yum! But I am obsessed with sour cream. I thought I hated it until like three years ago and now I put it on EVERYTHING. It's so good to me!!!

  4. I knew there was a reason we're friends :-) I cannot stand Ranch! The smell makes me nauseous and I have been known to physically change seats at restaurants when the person next to me orders it. Nasty, nasty stuff!
