For our Labor Day get together, we thought we would have steak.  At out house, this is beyond unusual.   Seldom do we buy steak for the whole gang.  Oh, we buy chuck roast and ground meat, but not steak.  On special occasions, Ever-Lovin’ and I enjoy a good steak at a steak house.  This got me […]

Friend Kim is hosting an 80th birthday party for her mother.  Kim’s mother is amazing.  She still plays tennis each week – in two tennis leagues no less.  (And she looks good in the cute tennis outfits also.) Kim called, and we discussed her party.  I had a couple of trays to loan her, and she […]

Easy Microwave Corn on the Cob

Posted on: Aug 19, 2014        In: In the Kitchen        With: 2 comments
Super Sister was the first person to tell be about cooking corn on the cob in the husk in the Microwave.  Yes, that is correct.  You do not have to shuck the corn before you cook it.  You cook the fresh corn with the husk and silks intact.  She raved about this, and recently I tried it. […]

Perini Ranch Green Chili Hominy – Jessica’s Favorite

Posted on: Jul 26, 2014        In: In the Kitchen, Recipes        With: 3 comments
The official name for this casserole is Jessica’s Favorite Green Chili Hominy, but since I remember it as the hominy casserole from Perini Ranch in Buffalo Gap, Texas, I call it Perini Ranch Green Chili Hominy.  This hominy casserole is seriously good and so easy to make.  It can be made in advance or even […]

My Favorite Storage Containers

Just in case you haven’t heard.  Restaurant supply stores are beyond wonderful.  Yes, you heard me correctly.  Restaurant supply stores are w-o-o-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l!  Having the right tools in the kitchen makes cooking and baking easier.  A mechanic needs tools to fix a car.  A gardner needs special tools for gardening.  A plumber needs special tools to […]

Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce

I started to title this post – The Best Bread Pudding – but that seemed a little presumptuous.  But I am here to tell you, – This is the best bread pudding I have ever made, and Lord knows I have tried to make a bread pudding to our liking.  Ever-Lovin’ loves bread pudding and […]

Gazpacho

Sweet Mother of Pearl!  For a summertime treat you cannot beat gazpacho.  The tomato based cold soup is filled with raw vegetables, and it is flavorful and so refreshing.  Gazpacho was served at Sheila’s Beach Birthday Party.  I was given this recipe by my friend who does not want to be named.  She got it from […]

Blue Watermelon Walnut Salad

Blue Watermelon Walnut Salad Caution – this salad can become an addiction! (That is the disclaimer that came with this salad from watermelon.org.)  I believe them. Now, I do not have wonderful pictures of this salad because when cooking for Sheila’s party, it was hard to have time to take pictures. The Blue Watermelon Walnut […]

Cucumber Salsa

Dear friend Pat sent me this recipe.  It is originally from the Food Network’s Cooking Live show.  Sweet Mother of Pearl!  Cucumber Salsa is now my new favorite recipe for cucumbers and tomatoes.  I honestly would call this a salad rather than a salsa, but let’s go with what the original recipe called it.  When the […]
