Good Morning! I hope y’all are experiencing the first signs of spring wherever you are. If not, I hope you have at least set aside a little room for Springtime in your kitchen. We can always “force spring” by making some of our favorite sunshiney dishes!
Today I’m bringing you a video of a brunch I hosted at my mother’s house, as part of the fun I’m having being one of the five Velveeta Kitchenistas! I’m also bringing you a great recipe for Velveeta Cheesy Bacon Hash Brown Bake (say that five times really fast!).
I’ll be posting the recipe for my Americanized version of Devonshire Cream (featured in the video as well) coming up on Southern Plate at a later date, but later today I’ll be emailing that recipe as well as Granny’s Jordan’s English Pea Pimento Salad recipe to all of my email subscribers so be sure and subscribe if you’d like to receive both of those a little early!
I hope you enjoy the video, the recipe is below!
The recipe for Pecan Pie Muffins we served at the brunch can be found by clicking here.

Elaine Raye is a dedicated contributor to our Give A Penny Page on Southern Plate. Today, I couldn’t choose just one quote and so I’m going to bring you two of hers. I think these two are worthy of writing down and taping up somewhere – that’s just what I plan on doing! Thank you, Elaine!

It means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.
Transparency Disclosure: I have partnered with VELVEETA to serve as one of five VELVEETA it! Kitchenistas. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes vlogging about my cooking experiences with VELVEETA and developing one original VELVEETA-based recipe. I have also been compensated for the food purchased for my VELVEETA vlogs. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments – because that wouldn’t be right anyway.
HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S DAY TO YOU!
I have fun with my family on April Fool’s Day but haven’t pulled my prank on them just yet! Once, I iced two layers of meatloaf with mashed potatoes, decorated the top by piping potatoes through an icing tip and adorning with with cherry tomatoes, and then served that first with a cookie pizza for dessert to several of Bradybug’s friends. I also told them we were having water to drink (which is very odd in my neck of the woods) and served them clear Kool Aid instead.
Back when my mother was a little girl my great aunt Myrtle made two cake pans of cornbread and took them to a local bakery where they iced them just like a birthday cake. Everyone was pretty surprised when they cut into that cake. Mama said they all giggled and took turns cutting into it to see how hard it was!
Tell me your favorite April Fool’s pranks (family friendly only, please) in the comments below and we can all get inspiration and ideas for what we’re gonna do later today!Yum
