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!
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!
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
Angela surprised us at Bachelorette last night with these cookies. I’ll be honest. While I love pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, I am not necessarily crazy about a lot of other pumpkin products…..that is, until I took a bite of one of these! They are dee-lish! And they are a little “cakier” and softer than I … More PUMPKIN COOKIES… tis the season!
We’ve been watching the Bachelor for at least 10 years….since the very beginning. Remember Alex DeMichele? And that’s where Trista came from when she was rejected and then became the first Bachelorette…….oh well, I digress. ANYWAY: Jean has been with us from the beginning. Last week she brought this excellent appetizer. CRANBERRY BRIE APPETIZER (delightful) … More CRANBERRY BRIE APPETIZER from Jean!
I first saw Christina Tosi on Masterchef Jr. with Gordon Ramsey. I thought she was adorable, but I didn’t know much about her until I listened to Guy Raz’s Podcast, “How I Built This” from NPR. There’s where the Girl Crush comes in. Her story was fascinating to me, especially her innovative approach to baking. … More AN OATMEAL COOKIE…and a Thanks and Tribute to Christina Tosi
Today I am very excited! I am invited to my Philippino friends house for an “International Lunch”. There will be many countries represented, including France, the Philippines, Portugal and West Virginia! (that’s ME!). Tess is even printing out a flag of West Va. When she invited me to bring a dish from my “Home Country” … More BANANA PUDDIN’ (an oldie but goodie!)
