Overnight Oatmeal

I keep seeing recipes for Overnight Oatmeal and before you try them, I’m going to let you in on two secrets. I know you can’t wait to hear these life-altering facts so I won’t make you wait any longer by shamelessly sticking them at the end of the post so you will read all the […]

Pasta and Sauce

Friday Night Pasta

One week at school and I’m already looking on the calendar for my next day off.  That will be in precisely one month from now on September 4th when we commemorate Labor Day.  What do you think?  Should I leave my 4th of July bunting up one more month and take it down after Labor […]

Southern Summer

Southern Summer

After a long break, I am back on the blog.  I decided last March when my blog experienced some major  difficulties, i.e., The “White Screen of Death” where all your content disappears, that I would make some major changes to the blog.  I received extensive help from a professional and friend, Randy, and decided to overhaul […]

Cola Cake

Olivia needed a photo from me from my past for a writing assignment so I flipped open an old album to this gem. I remember taking the photo but I need a little help remembering the backstory of this evening. Dorothy and Nancy, if you are reading the blog today, do you remember this? In […]

Peanut Butter “Pi”

I had to make a contribution to Pi day today so I pulled out an old favorite recipe – Peanut Butter Pie.  I started making Peanut Butter Pie in 1983 when I went to Florida for a week and ended up staying for the summer. My friend Alice and I tasted this pie at a restaurant and then […]

Hard to tell from the photo but that’s an aerial view of a Baked Blooming Onion.  I got my food drone charged and guided it over the monstrous Vidalia onion I baked just so you could see the inner workings of this delicious side dish.  It looks like a big football mum that we used […]

Tzatziki

Tzatziki

As mentioned in this post when I made Spanokopita, I consider myself an expert in all things Greek having been to Greece once and having attended two Greek Festivals so I was excited to find a new recipe for Tzatziki.  I’m always hesitant to make Tzatziki because I’m embarrassed to admit that I don’t like shredding the […]

Pancakes

Pancakes

This is a basic pancake recipe.  Nothing fancy.  Nothing added.  Just easy to make and always delicious. I try to like box mixes for pancakes and waffles but I don’t. I also don’t like buttermilk pancakes. Too thick and pasty. This recipe is my favorite because the pancakes are light and fluffy and only require […]

Cherry Coconut Granola Bars and Cheddar Bacon Biscuits

Last summer I decided to add a little fun to my bedroom fireplace mantle and I decorated with mermaids and treasure from the sea. I have always enjoyed the beach and imagine myself living there one day but for now, I am landlocked.  Unfortunately word soon got out that I had booty on my mantle and […]
