Excellent Cook Nancy brought Friend BB some cookies – Laura Bush’s Cowboy Cookies to be exact.  Mrs. Ralph ate one of said cookies, and declared it the best cookie she had ever eaten.  Mrs. Ralph did not mention said cookie just one time, I bet she mentioned it a bazillion times (Okay, I exaggerate.) but….  I […]

Thought it was time I shared the Orange Muffin recipe that I made for the ADK meeting.  (I promised I would.)  This recipe is a recipe from Helen Corbitt.  It is easy to make and delicious.  I like these muffins because they keep well, and you can even freeze them. I was reminded of this […]

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 […]

It was weird.  For our Super Bowl gathering, we had bruschetta.  Now, that is not weird in itself, but what was weird was – This Italian appetizer is not usually served with Frito Pie.  Our menu was rather typical for a Super Bowl gathering – Pigs in the blanket, Frito pie, and all the trimmings […]

On the cover of the February 2014 Southern Living Magazine, is the picture of a Lemon-Lime Pound Cake. For Carmen’s birthday party, Carmen’s niece’s husband (or would that be Carmen’s nephew-in-law, or Carmen’s sister’s son-in-law or…I am sure there are other possibilities) made this Lemon-Lime Pound Cake.  It was just as pretty as the cake […]

Sarah's luncheon
I have so been wanting to eat Chinese Cole Slaw.  It is one of my all time favorite salads, but…  It makes a big salad, so I have to wait for a time when I will be feeding a crowd.  Our lunch at Sarah’s filled the bill.  Yea! This is another recipe from my mother’s […]

Baked Oatmeal

StoneGable is a blog I enjoy.  Yvonne is one talented person – she cooks, she creates, she decorates, and she and her husband even do most of their home projects themselves.  On top of all of that, her photographs are fantastic. A couple of times she mentioned Baked Oatmeal on her blog.  She even planned […]

Hey gang.  This is an ORIGINAL.  Sheila – AKA Sheshe – created this recipe for Potato Salad Bites, and it is a winner. Sheshe made these little stuffed red potatoes for Stephanie’s wedding shower, and they were a hit.  Yes, I had seen Baked Potato Bites recipes, but these little potatoes are stuffed with potato […]

Sheila and I have been cooking together for as long as we have known each other.  Back in the day, we were part of a group of “church ladies” that cooked lunch for about 125 women once a month for Baptist Women.  We had so much fun together – and still do! Sheila has always […]

Sweet petite Katie from Bonham made these delicious melt-in-your-mouth cookies for Jessica’s baby shower.  Miss Charlotte asked for the recipe, and Katie was happy to share. You might have seen this recipe called Forgotten Cookies.  That is because you put them in a hot oven, turn off the oven, and leave them.  - That is […]
