The night was filled with friends and family, great food and a very funny movie! Thoughts are already in my mind in planning for round two!   [Read more…]

Pinned, Prepared, Perfect

Loaded Potato Casserole | My Kitchen AddictionsConfession…I have nothing to hide!  Pinterest is an obsession… no another addiction of mine! When I should be doing the checkbook or cleaning the house, you’ll often find me on Pinterest. Just check out my Pinterest page…it’s proof!  I asked my daughter the other day if I had too many Pinterest boards and she was honest and said, “Yes!”  “But, Look!” I said.  “I have everything organized!”   I didn’t have the nerve to tell her I had several secret boards!

Today I launch a new feature on My Kitchen Addictions….Pinned, Prepared, Perfect!  The recipes I share  will be ones I’ve pinned on my Pinterest page, prepared in my kitchen and consider perfect!

Today, I share Loaded Potato Casserole.  You can find the recipe pinned on my Pinterest Sides board. [Read more…]

Key Lime Cake

KeyLimeCake|MyKitchenAddictionsI was looking through some cookbooks from my shelf the other day in order to find something green to make for St.Patrick’s Day.  As I looked through Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking I remembered I made her Key Lime Cake last year around this same time.  It was the perfect find for green!


This is a super, moist cake and sumptuous with my Cream Cheese Icing.
