Easiest Recipe Ever

Easiest Recipe Ever

Easiest Recipe Ever! This weekend I got to go watch my first cousin once removed (sounds fancy) play hockey at The Cooler in Alpharetta.  Isn’t that the greatest name for an ice skating rink? I wish we had an ice skating rink around Peachtree City because I love to ice skate.  I’m not the greatest […]

Rustic Blackberry Peach Tart

Rustic Blackberry Peach Tart

I love the trend of rustic.  When you have old furniture, you scratch it even more and call it a rustic patina and when you sew like I do, people call it homestyle.  Making this rustic blackberry peach tart started me thinking about all of the ways we are forgiving our imperfections these days. I […]

Peanut Butter

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 […]

Presidential Pears

Presidential Pears

Happy Presidents Day!.  Since I have met then-presidential candidate Ronald Reagan when I was 15, I feel confident as the resident expert on all things of a patriotic nature. Here is a picture from the newspaper as I greeted Reagan when he landed at the Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport on a campaign stop in April 1976. […]

Thanksgiving Leftovers Surprise

Thanksgiving Leftovers Surprise

Don’t you always find it a dilemma as to what to do with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers? There’s turkey tetrazzini, turkey soup,and  turkey croquettes to name a few. Too many decisions and too much work!  So, I chose none of the afore-mentioned delicacies, gave the leftovers to the dog and made these! Rice Krispie Treat Turkey […]

Favorite Brownies and Kitchen Cleaning App

If you didn’t read  the Ketchup and Mustard  post, you completely missed out on my aromatic mustard kitchen.  I mentioned that the fumes were quite intense.  I can see why mustard gas during WWI was effective.  Wow!  I also reported that we made late night brownies to replace the odor with something more pleasant.  It […]

Summer Supper

Summer Supper

I’m not a very good repeat eater.  I get tired of meals pretty quickly.  I like to eat a meal and move on to something different next time.  That’s one reason I enjoy my freezer so much because I can freeze the leftovers of a big batch and not have to plow through the whole amount in […]

Fourth of July 2016

Fourth of July 2016

There are cherry bombs and then there are cherry bombs!  My friend, Terri, recently sent me a text saying Happy Fourth of July…Cherry Bombs!  My mind went instantly to the 1970’s when my brother and our neighbor Dale would set off cherry bombs and other fireworks in our giant storm drain.  It was a big […]

Blackberry Coconut Bars

Blackberry Coconut Bars

Today was stinkin’ hot.  Super stinkin’ hot.  I simply do not do well in the heat.  It drains.  It discourages.  It makes me overly dramatic.  Insert long miserable sigh here. I cleaned my tile shower today.  Deep cleaned.  Do you have any idea how not exciting that is??  Then I straightened the kitchen.  That didn’t raise the […]

Marshmallow Eagles

Marshmallow Eagles

I am trying out another Fourth of July recipe today.  This one is for Marshmallow Eagles. I finally found a use for the Jumbo Marshmallows.  They are way too big for roasting on the fire because they don’t cook to the middle, obviously too big for hot cocoa (well not too obvious because I did try it) […]
