Oreo Cakeballs
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 […]

Date skillet cookies
Let’s get started cooking for Christmas.  Date Skillet Cookies is a recipe from my childhood.  I remember Mother making these treats during many many Christmas seasons, and I thought they would be something different to share with you.  I was not sure I could find the recipe, but  I went hunting through my recipe boxes, and to […]

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 […]

Mrs. Ralph recently reminded me about the pumpkin bread recipe from my mother’s cookbook A+ in Cooking.  She had made it, and was pleased how well it turned out.  Well, just the mention of this recipe spurred me into action.  Since I enjoy sharing recipes from Mother’s cookbook, and pumpkin bread is a perfect fall treat, I […]

Evelyn's Mini Quiches
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 […]

There is a difference of opinion at our house.  I know this might come as a shock to some of you, but others will completely understand.  When it comes to cucumbers and onions, Ever-Lovin’ likes the combination to be sweet.  I, on the other hand, like a more vinegary taste.  Sweet Mother of Pearl.  I […]

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 […]

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 […]
