Summer Couscous Salad

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

What is couscous, you ask? To be completely honest, I’m not all that sure. I know it’s a grain, and a very healthy one at that. It’s commonly used in middle-eastern cooking if I’m correct. But the bottom line is, it’s practically one of the easiest things you can make, and it’s absolutely delicious. So […]

Cilantro Lime Rice

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

It’s been a whopping 20 days but I am finally getting around to posting the recipe for the rice to go along with the Almost Famous Corn Salsa ( You don’t want to miss out on this stuff either! This corn salsa and the cilantro lime rice are two of the components to go along […]

Mae Mae’s Christmas Ambrosia

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

This is another one of those recipes that floods me with memories of my sweet grandmother, Mae Mae. When thinking of Mae Mae and the many things she always made at Christmas time, you can’t leave this recipe out. I remember boxes of fruit being at her house, but I don’t remember where they came […]

Cheese Grits

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Are you guys making your list of all the things you want to make for Christmas yet? I am! Then again, that’s probably no surprise to all of you. I usually do the same thing every year for breakfast on Christmas morning, homemade cinnamon rolls and sausage balls. My kids love it, it’s easy, and […]

Mae Mae’s Sliced Potatoes

Monday, October 10th, 2011

This is yet another recipe from my sweet, sweet Mae Mae. She used to go through phases with these potatoes (actually, with every recipe she used). She’d make them over and over for a while and then go for months without making them. It’s like she’d forget about them and then once she remembered them […]

Mom’s Cucumber & Onion Salad

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

These are a Southern classic right here! Well, I say that they are. They may be an “everywhere” classic but I call them Southern because I’m from the South and my family has been eating this recipe for as long as I can remember. Cucumbers are one of those vegetables that are super easy to […]

Tomato Pie

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

When I was growing up my Paw Paw was well known for his garden. Some summers I even remember him having a garden in two different locations. He’d get up early and water the plants in the backyard garden, then load up his bright green Chevy Luv pick-up truck (which had the most memorable horn […]

Homemade French Fries

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

This may seem like a silly thing to post, but believe it or not there are people out there that don’t know how to make french fries at home. Yep, it’s true. It really is! I always loved my grandmother’s french fries best. Hers were just regular old fries, nothing special, but for some reason […]

Greek Pasta Salad

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

This recipe comes from my cousin, Kathy. You may remember a few of her recipes that are already on here like her Mandarin Pasta Salad ( If you’ve tried it then you doubt know how good Kathy’s recipes are. She’s a wonderful cook, and also a pretty sweet person. We’re pretty lucky to have her […]

Bowties & Broccoli

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

What a weird name for a recipe, huh? This recipe is a Supermomchef original, and came to mind one night when I had been to Sam’s earlier in the day and picked up all the regular items I get there, including a rotisserie chicken and a huge bag of broccoli florets. The chicken was of […]
