Every Thanksgiving is very special but this one seemed to be more precious because Bill and I was with family in Kentucky. We were so happy to see everyone, especially Mama. At 86, she came downstairs dressed for dinner in jeans and a cute corduroy jacket, a chunky necklace and a little make-up! It was […]

When Hannah was 13 years old, she told her father, “Teenage and old age don’t mix”. I think that’s also true when it comes to vegetables and children. Last week our daughter, Jen, told me how she recalls eating broccoli; steamed with melted white American cheese. I suppose a mother will do anything to get […]

I couldn’t decide which recipe to share with you this month so I chose two versions of a Southern Standby. And yes… its comfort food at its best! Here are two of my favorite home-made cheese spreads. Both are equally great for an afternoon snack or hosting a dinner party. Although it wouldn’t be very […]

Recently we were in Boston with Josh so we stopped in to see Jen, Dave and Baby G. We decided to get take-out from a local Thai restaurant not far from Charlestown. It’s one of those meals that you think about the next day. In fact, I’m still thinking about the Pineapple Fried Rice

As I was going thru some magazines I ran across this recipe and thought it sounded refreshing and would be a nice change to traditional summer salads. Not sure about how the combinations of flavors would work, I mentioned it to our daughter Jenn and she told me that not only had she eaten it, […]

Every recipe has a story to tell. This cake was named after the amount an unsuspecting lady paid for it while dining at the Waldorf Astoria. She couldn’t pass on the Chocolate Cake. (Can you blame her?) It was so good she asked the Chef if she could get a copy of the recipe. He […]

Since I love avocado and arugula I thought you might enjoy this salad too! Bon Appetite!

There are three great things about this recipe. One; it can be made a day ahead so the cook can sleep late too! Just refrigerate, and then allow casserole to reach room temperature before baking. Two; your family or guest will rave about it! If you’re serving it for breakfast a fresh fruit salad is […]

This recipe comes from one of my all-time favorite cookbooks, “Louisiana Legacy”. Over the years I can’t tell you how many times I’ve referenced it. In fact there is “art work” across some of the pages from the kids when they were toddlers. Click For Full Recipe!

Ever have one of those days when you get home from work and wonder what you are going to make for dinner? Last night was one of those nights. I took inventory of the fridge and pantry and came up with this soup. It also happens to taste great!
