My Sweet Neighbor Renee and hubby Dave gave a great party and did all the cooking for a big crowd. She brought us samples of pulled pork, pulled lamb, wonderful potatoes and such great goodies. Everything was so tasty that I almost ignored the cookies, because they just looked like plain cookies, and dessert is … More surprise! It’s a Great Cookie!
I don’t know why everybody doesn’t just make their own hot fudge. I takes less than 10 minutes, and if you are like me you usually have all the ingredients handy. (Im one of those old fashioned cooks who keeps evaporated milk handy just in case!) but if you don’t have it, milk or cream … More HOT FUDGE…..MAKE IT AT HOME!
Before you read this I want to ask you a question. What is a Gratin? (Graa-Tann) I am not one bit ashamed to tell you that even after all the years of cooking, teaching cooking, catering and generally living my life for food and the preparation, I have been wrong. I always thought it meant … More ITS APPLE TIME…..NOW WHAT DO WE MAKE?
I recently had a gang over for Mexican food, and I made Fajitas. Its a fun dinner for a group, but requires LOTS of prep work. Another problem: What do you serve as a side dish? True, you may not really need one. But I just can’t seem to get past those old rules. I … More Calabisitas….(Kal-ah-bah-see-tas) Got some squash, corn, and cream?
If you are like me (and you know you are!) You are always coming up with recipes that leave you with something you don’t know what to do with! Eggs are one of those things…..I make Hollandaise in the microwave from a recipe I have been using since teaching microwave classes in the 70’s and … More Two Eggs…….Now what? Nuts for Hollandaise!
I am in a panic because I just posted this recipe on my Instagram (askmehowiknowcb)and I forgot one of the MOST important ingredients: Sugar!!! In the olden days we used to make our own salad dressings. I still do, but this is one I haven’t made in years. Angela came over and mentioned she likes … More MY MOMMA’S FRENCH DRESSING 1938
ANOTHER GREAT ONE FROM DANNIE!! I have to say I never even heard of this dish! Be honest, did you? But here it is. And here we were on Bachelor Night, eating another fabulous Mystery dessert from Southern Belle, Dannie. (Dannie, please move to Arizona……we could eat your food all day!) SODA CRACKER PIE 3 … More SODA CRACKER PIE WHAAAAAT?????
I’ve told you many times that we have been watching Bachelor every week for over 10 years. Don’t get excited. We don’t watch it because of the show–we realize it’s dumb and a waste of our time. But we have many other reasons to get together, not the least of which is the food, fellowship, … More APPLE DUMPLINGS FROM DANNIE. SOUTHERN LADIES CAN REALLY COOK!
This soup is SO deelish!! I make lots of soup for lots of people, and this is the one nobody ever asks for, because they are unfamiliar with it. But once they have tasted it, and the “mystery” is gone, they are hooked. I guess ginger, galangal, lemon grass, and Kaffir lime leaves aren’t really … More THOM YUM. YUMM!! (thai coconut soup. Thom Yum Gai)
Debra brought this to our weekly Bachelorette Party last night. Since we are so close to Thanksgiving, I NEED to blog this ASAP. If you are a lover of Thanksgiving flavors, you will love this. My hubby likes pecan pie the best, and I like Pumpkin–not that I’d turn either one down. But this is … More PUMPKIN/PECAN Thanksgiving Dessert
