This is another camping vacation for hubby and me. It is the same, yet different! I have never cooked on a gas stove or with a gas oven, so today I decided to undertake it. I have lived to tell about it! :) I let hubby light it because I was a tiny bit scared. I guess you could say he lit my fire and I was cookin’ with gas! HAAA!! Sorry, I couldn’t resist…must be the fresh air.
It is cold! For us, anything in the 20s is blizzard conditions. Hubby went out to look at the lake and the dock was icy. He did get to hear the duck hunters hunting in the distance. I didn’t see anything but my eyelids…sleeping in is half the fun!! I finally felt guilty that hubby was outside in the cold and decided to rouse myself from my beauty sleep.
The morning had begun and I started with yummy bacon! All southerners MUST have their pork in the morning!!
How good does that look?? Thick slices of smoked, yummy goodness!
Gracie waits for her piece of bacon. How sweet is that?? She knows I can’t resist that wagging tail and expecting eyes…I am such a softie!
It took longer than I expected. I thought gas stoves were supposed to cook faster than electric, but we got there.
Have a great day, precious reader!
I found this by accident on a blog that is no longer managed. I was so sad to see it abandoned! It had this picture, but the webpage could not be found! I went in search using google and http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/10/easy-15-minute-apple-cinnamon-rolls.html came to my rescue! I love this site and encourage you to visit it! They have some REALLY neat stuff!! I am going to do this when we go camping! This with a hot coffee in 27 degree weather sounds divine! Enjoy!!
Directions: Open package and place cinnamon rolls 2″ apart in a lightly greased 9×13″ baking pan. Scoop a large spoonful of apple pie filling on top of each cinnamon roll. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes (time will depend on your oven, so just check often). Remove from oven and drizzle with frosting while they are still warm.

Hello, precious readers!! Make sure you check out all of my Thanksgiving recipes! I have “How to Brine a Turkey” that tells you how to make the most delicious and moist turkey ever! I have “Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes“! They are incredibly creamy and buttery!! I also have “Juliana’s Turkey and Dressing“. What is Thanksgiving without the dressing?? I will also have a green bean recipe coming soon, but today I want to share this incredible Cranberry Sauce with you! It is delicious and makes your kitchen smell divine! Pour it right over the dressing, if you like. Enjoy, dear readers!!
1 cup water
1 cup white sugar
1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
1 orange, peeled and pureed
1 apple – peeled, cored and diced
1 pear – peeled, cored and diced
1 cup chopped dried mixed fruit
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
In a medium saucepan, boil water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat to simmer, and stir in cranberries, pureed orange, apple, pear, dried fruit, pecans, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries burst. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature.
My husband asks me every year to make this for his office party at Thanksgiving and Christmas. The ladies in his office love it, and he leaves home with it like he is proud of his mommy because he is taking the yummiest treat in the class! It makes me laugh every year, but it makes me feel pretty good, too he is so proud of me! This goes great with just about anything from fancy turkeys or hams or lazy day barbeques! Enjoy!!
1 stick butter
1 (8 1/2 ounce) box corn muffin mix
1 (16 1/2 ounce) cream style corn, undrained
1 (8 ounce) sour cream
1 cup grated cheese
Melt butter in a pan. Add whole kernel corn, cream style corn, sour cream, and corn muffin mix. Stir until blended. Place in baking dish that has been sprayed with a nonstick spray. I usually use a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish, but you can put it in a 9×13, too. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Add grated cheese and bake for an extra 15 minutes.
