Mommas March Mania

Mommas March Mania is getting under way and begins tomorrow March 15th-22nd.
There will be giveaways each day. Head on over and check it out.

Breakfast Anyone?

Alright my Sweet Cookie's! Brace yourself for this post. It is very graphic and indulgent to say the least. You may want to guard the little people from seeing any of the photos. It could really cause some hyperactivity that can't be stopped. Are you ready?............................
Do you enjoy a good filling breakfast with Lot's of family atmosphere? I know I do! Well I have the perfect place for you to take your family and enjoy every BITE.

The Log Cabin Pancake House in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Not to be confused with any other pancake house in the surrounding area. This establishment has been around longer than I have. They opened their doors in the 70's and have been going strong ever since.
I have been eating breakfast there for 23+ years and it is one of the places that I never leave town without getting my fix at.
Wanna see what I'm talking about? This is my all time favorite breakfast.
Continental French Toast, Country Ham, Grape Juice and Coffee.
Here are some of my family's favorite's too. You may need a napkin for the drooling you will experience.
Country Ham, Biscuits,Gravy and Hash brows. YummmmmmmmmY! Chocolate Chip Pancakes!
Ham and Cheese Omelet with Pancakes! And there is so much more like their pecan waffles that my Aunt Tam LOVE'S!

I can't say enough about The Log Cabin Pancake House. The waitresses there are all so sweet and have the best southern hospitality. Some have been there since the doors opened. I remember them all from when I was a child. It is so nice to see them each time I visit. Just like Family.

I talked with the Dining Manager, Yvonne King who has been there since the beginning. She quickly told me that you pronounce the Y in her name. So it would be more like this Y-vonne. She is always there and is usually the one seating the customers....100's of them. I had my picture made with her for my keepsake book and this blog. She is such a sweetheart.

If any of you take a trip to the Smokey Mountains I promise you won't be disappointed when you dine with my extended family at the Log Cabin Pancake House. You will be hooked and in love just like me. Oh yeah, you might want to know this. If you are coming into Pigeon Forge from Gatlinburg, it is the first Pancake house on the right. If you are headed towards Gatlinburg it will be the last pancake house on the left. There address is 4235 Parkway Pigeon Forge, Tn 37863.

I hope Y'all make a special trip and Enjoy!!!!

Cookie Club Recipe #5

Whew!!!! I have been whirling around like a Texas tornado this week. I got back in town from the Smokey Mountains and it took me a little bit to get my ducks in a row. I will post about that little trip soon. For now I have the 5th cookie recipe for my devoted cookie club fans.
Before I give you the recipe I must tell you....You have to use the filling or the cookies will not be good. Trust ME! :)

Caramel Cream Sandwich Cookies

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg yolk
2 cups AP flour

2 Tblsp. butter (do not use margarine)
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
4-5 tsp milk


In a large bowl, combine brown sugar and 1 cup of butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk; blend well. Add flour; mix well. If necessary, cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 15 minutes for easier handling.

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool 15 minutes or until completely cooled.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat until light golden brown, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat.

Stir in remaining ingredients adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency; blend until smooth.

Spread 1 teaspoon of frosting between 2 cooled cookies. Repeat.

Makes about 30 sandwich cookies.
