So, in like fashion, next up on my recipe list is Old Fashioned Pound Cake. Pound cake got it's name, not from it caloric content. The name is from the idea that if you mix a 1 pound portion of each of the basic ingredients a perfect cake comes out. So, in that fashion, here is one pound (approximately) of each of those basic ingrediants.
3 c. flour
2 c. butter, softened
8 large eggs
2 ½ c sugar
Mix well in a large bowl. Pour into a greased loaf pan or bundt pan and cook at 325 for approximately 70 minutes.
P.S. Once the basics are down this recipe can be dressed up with flavorings, etc. Enjoy!

Who doesn't love PANCAKES? I have memories of my mom, making pancake batter from scratch and then pouring me out designs in yummy pancake form. The easiest is the mouse head, but she would even try my most crazy requests, including elephants and cars. Forget the mix, try this simple homemade recipe and all will be well.
1 cup flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1 cup milk
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl with a wire whisk. Pour 1/4 cup ladles full of batter onto a hot, greased skillet. Cook on on side until small bubbles begin to form and pop. Using a spatula, flip over and cook on other side until brown. Serve hot with syrup and other such toppings.

1 and 1/2 lbs of ground beef
1/2 pound of regular pork sausage
1 slice of white bread, torn into small pieces
1/8 cup ketchup
1/8 cup bbq sauce
1/8 cup milk
1/2 small can of diced green chilies
1/2 small onion, diced
1 block of cheddar or spicy jack cheese, cut into one inch cubes
Mix all ingredients together with hands in a large bowl. Place in a crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours. Enjoy!
I find this meatloaf is best served with hot sauce instead of ketchup as a garnish.
