Baked Beans in a Presidential Skillet

As simple a dish as it is, everyone seems to have a different baked bean recipe.  I’m going to enter my Cast Iron Skillet Baked Beans into the mix as not only a pretty side dish, but a tasty one, too.  My Cast Iron Skillet Baked Beans recipe is somewhat basic so if you absolutely […]

Harvest Brussels sprouts

Harvest Brussels Sprouts

Some of you may have already stopped reading when you saw the name Harvest Brussels Sprouts.  Keep reading! This recipe will change your perception of these tiny cabbages.  Show them some love.  In a 2008 poll in the United States voted Brussels sprouts as the least favorite vegetable of all. But I think I can […]

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 […]

Baked Bloomin Onion

Baked Blooming Onions

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 […]

Cornbread Salad

Cornbread Salad

One of my favorite recipes for lunch is Cornbread Salad.  It isn’t the most photogenic of recipes but once you taste it you won’t care what it looks like. I guess you could call it a Beauty and the Beast Salad. Like Belle, I tried to dress it up with a rose. But ultimately it really […]

Beet Fail

Beet Fail

Sad to say my dehydrated beet salvage did not work.  To get you up to speed, I bought an organic beet two days ago.  I tried to dehydrate it to make crispy beet chips.  They were teeth-breakingly tough. Then, I read a recipe where they dehydrated vegetables and chopped them up to make a crunch […]

Happy New Year 2017

I hope your new year is off to a better start than these little guys! Ha! I found this yard art on the way to my New Year’s Day Kai.  A Kai is an event where people gather together to weave or spin, eat a meal, and share ideas.  I went to this Kai at HanDen […]

Lentils and Moonbows

Lentils and Moonbows

Lentils and moonbows have nothing in common except that was how we spent the evening – eating lentils and looking at moonbows.  I’ll start with the moonbows.  I was taking the dog out for his pee-on-every-tree walk when I looked up to see a beautiful moon. I had Davis turn out the lights and zoomed in on the […]

Spanokopita

Spanokopita

I have been to Greece and I have been to two Greek festivals.  I’m thinking this makes me pretty much an expert on all thing Greek.  Go ahead and ask me a question about Greece.  For example, who was the Oracle?  I know the answer.  Where did the Apostle Paul travel on his second missionary […]
