Something Different for Dessert

IMG 2415.jpg

A story on news a few days ago revealing that 21% of people who eat pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving don’t like it a bit. That number doesn’t even address the people (like my husband) who will have nothing to do with it. Actually, no one has invented a pie I don’t like. …

Birthday Muffins

My mom’s birthday celebration is today and even though we are going to a buffet that has lots of pretty desserts, she deserves a homemade treat at the end of the day. With that in mind, Chocolate Pumpkin Streusel Muffins just went in the oven. …

Worth Dipping Into

Sure – you can buy a million varieties of dips for your chips at the grocery store, but why waste your calories when with barely any effort you can create a roasted green onion and blue cheese dip that makes every potato chip worth it? …

A One Pan Dinner

This isn’t your average one pan heat in the microwave meal. This recipe is for Creole Shrimp, Chicken, and Vegetables made in one pan that you will happily serve to company and even more happily clean up with a quick toss of aluminum foil in the trash. …

Always a Winner

This dish undoubtedly has another name, but when my friend Karla served it to us the first time we loved it and friends and family now request Karla Slaw for any picnic, tailgate, or potluck event. …

My darling friend Anne, who says she can’t cook, always manages to send me the most delightful recipes that she has indeed cooked and usually with a creative twist. This recipe for a Peach Crisp for One or Twenty comes at a perfect time. …

Just One More…

IMG 3881.jpg

We just got back from a trip where we were able to sample lots of different local fruits but nothing was as thrilling as getting home and discovering that the figs on the backyard tree were finally ripe. The first time I saw a fig tree was in Memphis when I was in college. …
