It happens to the best of us.  A recipe does not compute.  As it is written, there are gaps in the description.  That is the case with this recipe for Molasses Cookies from my mother’s cookbook A+ in Cooking.  The directions are not complete.  Any experienced cook can figure out the recipe, but for someone […]

The other day I tasted one of Ever-Lovin’s store bought cookies, and I could not believe how horrible it was.  I asked him why he would eat such a thing.  He said he had to have something to snack on.  I felt about two inches tall.  I had neglected my man.  I promised I would […]

Anna wrote, “I know you ike Blue Bell, but have you tried Talenti gelato? It is available from Target, Albertson’s, and Kroger, and probably many other stores, but WalMart and Brookshire’s are down here and no Talenti Gelato….of any flavor.

As a rookie hostess for the ladies monthly Round Table luncheon, it was a little intimidating to think that our committee was responsible not only for the decorations but also the food.  When I saw that Evelyn was on the hostess list, I breathed a sigh of relief.  Everyone knows that Evelyn is a fantastic […]
