I live in the city of Flat Rock in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC.  I do alot of cooking from scratch and we love to camp alot at Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach, SC. I am married to a wonderful husband of 23 years and have 2 dogs, a 2 year old Cardigan Corgi named Galen  & a 7 yr old Chinook named Charlie Brown. I also have 2 sons, 1 aged 34 in NV and 1 aged 43 in CO.   I love collecting recipes and entering them into my electronic cookbook program and always looking for new recipes to try and share.

We have a couple of favorite all-in-one breakfast dishes; one is a 'Yummy Breakfast Pizza' and an 'Egg Sausage Pancake Sandwich' (courtesy of Paula Deen). Mexican and Italian dishes are favorites in our house too. As for pizza, I just made a 'Chicken Taco Pizza' for Fathers Day and it was a great hit and 'Alabama Fudge Pie' for dessert.

I switched the recipe around regarding the Miracle Whip/Mayonnaise since most people probably prefer Mayonnaise. And revised recipe to add missing ingredients (sugar & honey mustard). Remember now to hit re-link ingredients so you have the correct Nutrition Information after the change. Thanks to Joeswife for bringing to my attention the missing ingredient. — cogramma 12/30/2011

Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

For anyone that isn't familiar with what Bisquick is? This is a baking mix by Betty Crocker. Hope this helps!! And I would use mild Italian sausage in the future if you don't want it to be too bland or feel free to add your own spice choices. — cogramma 10/22/2011

TIME SAVE TIP: If a 9x13 inch dish is too large, you can prepare in (2) 8 x 8 inch sized pans. Serve one for dinner and freeze the seconnd one. To freeze, assemble the casserole and then cover the unbaked casserole with plastic wrap, and 2 layers of foil. Date and place in freezer. When ready to cook, remove from the freezer, defrost and proceed with the baking instructions. [I posted this recipe.] — cogramma 9/29/2009

After the meat mixture has cooled completely you can place it in resealable freezer plastic bags or freezer containers. The mixture can be frozen for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, just reheat meat mixture in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring frequently. [I posted this recipe.] — cogramma 9/7/2009

This egg salad is one of the best I have tried! The only other things I added was 1/4 tsp of paprika & sugar. It will definitely be one of the sandwiches that we eat regularly. Thanks for a great recipe!! — esilennamurphy 9/6/2009

Quick Baking Mix

Quick Baking Mix

This Baking Mix can be stored safely for up to 6 months in an air tight container. Contents of mix may settle during storage. When you're ready to prepare a recipe, just simply spoon mix into a measuring cup. [I don't like using SHORTENING so I substitute it with butter and cut the salt by a 1/2 teaspoon].

Baked Oatmeal

Since I love peanut butter with oatmeal I would probably add 3 Tbsp. or more when combining the milk, egg and oil mixture and then bake according to directions. [I posted this recipe.] — cogramma 7/17/2009
