It has been a while since I have shared a recipe from my mother’s cookbook, A+ in Cooking. The idea was to find a muffin or breakfast bread recipe to share with you.  I for one was somewhat tired of having wheat toast every morning, and I wanted something different.  I also wanted to share […]

True confession – I am not a huge fan of cake balls.  I know the rest of the world loves cake balls, and gobble them up by the fistfuls.  BUT – So many of the cake balls I have eaten were gummy and mushy.  It is not a taste thing.  It is a texture thing.  With that announcement […]

Food memories can just make my day.  I remember the first time I tasted Mini Pecan Pies.  To say that they made a lasting impression is an understatement.  It was a  gathering at Marie Stobaugh’s home.  I thought the little tarts she made that were filled with pecan pie filling were about the best thing […]

Sesame Asparagus Roll-ups are so good.  I like them.  I love them.  They are so good that I was determined to make them for Stephanie’s shower. It took three trips to as many grocery stores to be able to find asparagus to my liking.  At one store, the asparagus was too large (I almost wrote […]
