Savannah Case, originally from
Conway, recently started a food blog on Instagram and has quickly become a favorite source for recipes. She loves cooking for her husband, Jordan, and their daughter, Hazel. Her fun style and mix of no-nonsense recipes your family will love can be found on Instagram under the account Mybohomie. We’ve already made several of her recipes in our own kitchens, and they were all a hit. Follow her on Instagram. You and the mouths you feed will be happy you did!
Why did you decide to start blogging? I started my Instagram page because I was getting asked often to share a recipe when I posted things I cooked onto my personal page. I had many people ask me to either create a cookbook, which I hope someday I can, or to start an account strictly for cooking and sharing recipes. So, this January I did just that. It has been so fun cooking and creating tasty foods for everyone to try themselves.
What do you love most about blogging? I love being able to help you create a delicious meal you and your family can enjoy. I think it’s important to sit down to a home cooked meal with your family. I also want to empower you. You can do this! And I hope my recipes make it easier.
How did you come up with the name
Mybohomie? I came up with the name Mybohomie because I’m inviting you into just that. My style is very bohemian, our home reflects that, but I wanted it to be welcoming so I used a pun on words. Homie as in your friend, but also as a feeling you get when you’re somewhere comfortable. I hoped my recipes from our home would bring all the feel goods to yours, and you would consider me your friend along the way.
What is your ideal breakfast menu? Breakfast is ever changing in our home. I love cooking breakfast foods and my family loves to eat them! My little girl loves my pancakes. I think she would eat them daily if I would make them. The same for my husband, but he loves a good omelet even more. I’m a bread girl, too, but I’d rather have a cinnamon coffee cake with a fresh brewed cup of coffee to go with it. How can you just choose a couple things, though? Let’s cook quiche, scrambled cheesy eggs, French toast, hashbrown casserole, muffins, apple fritters, fried egg sandwiches, breakfast casseroles, bacon, ham, and sausage balls. Are y’all hungry yet because I am! A lot of these wonderful dishes have already been shared on my Instagram page, and if they aren’t there yet…don’t worry! It’s all coming.
What is a kitchen gadget you can‘t live without? There are many, but I do love my food processor. A good baking sheet is so important. And also, a hamburger meat chopper! I know it might sound odd but Google it. They are sold almost anywhere, and it makes chopping ground beef in the skillet a breeze.
How would you describe your blog to new followers? An easy way to plan meals with helpful hints to make it happen.
Here are a few of Savannah‘s most liked recipes on Instagram.
The Boho Bacon Burger
INGREDIENTS 1 lb. ground beef 1 egg 1 tsp. Cavender’s seasoning 2 tbsp. Italian salad dressing 1 tbsp. Worcestershire 1 tbsp. grape jelly 1/2 sleeve Ritz crackers, crumbled Sliced cheese Bacon (Petit Jean always) Brioche Buns Butter
INSTRUCTIONS Fry the bacon and set aside.
Mix everything together and separate into patties (I made 5).
Melt 2 tbsp of butter or oil if you didn’t fry bacon first (but OMG—bacon grease is so good to cook your burger in).
Medium heat, 4 minutes per side if you want it cooked through but still so juicy.
Add cheese the last minute and a half and cover so it melts (if you don’t
have a lid use a sheet pan it works just as good).
Butter the buns and fry ‘em so they get that good texture that makes a burger perfect.
Spinach Cheese Dip
INGREDIENTS 1/2 lb of Velveeta, cubed
16 oz Spinach Dip (I use Market Fresh brand from Walmart)
1/2 c. milk 1 can Rotel Tomatoes 1 tsp. chili powder 1/4 tsp. onion powder 1/2 tsp. garlic powder 1/4 c. fresh cilantro, chopped 1/2 tsp. cumin 1/2 tsp. paprika 1/4 tsp. cayenne (optional)
NOTE: I also like to add a scoop of Harry & David’s Pepper and Onion Relish to my bowl! It’s a game changer! If y’all haven’t started buying that yet, you are missing out. We buy it by the case, but they also sell it at our local Walmart.
Turn Crock-Pot on high, add cubed Velveeta cheese, milk & Rotel.
Add spinach dip.Add rest of spices.
Cook on high for 30 minutes and stir, cook another 20-30 (watch so the sides don’t start to burn). Then turn to warm.
If you add a full pound of Velveeta then just double the spices and milk. You don’t have to add more spinach dip.
You can also do this in the microwave or on the stove top.
I think it‘s important to sit down to a home cooked meal with your family. I want to empower you. You can do this! And I hope my recipes make it easier.
