Red Beans & Rice

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

This recipe holds many memories for me, as it’s a recipe I remember my mom making all the time growing up. And usually my recipes bring back good memories, but this one, not so much. Why, you ask? Because kids are mean. My mom was a wonderful mom, one of those moms that always made sure [...]

Homemade Feta Sauce

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

There’s this restaurant in Jackson, MS, which shall go nameless so that I don’t accidentally infringe on any kind of copyright or tradmark issues, but I tell ya what…they have the BEST pitas that have ever been made. And judging by the huge crowd there every single day at lunchtime (I’m not brave enough to [...]

Cheese Wafers

Friday, December 16th, 2011

I thought maybe y’all were sick of sweet recipes and could use something different for a change. Don’t you go gettin’ too comfortable with the savory recipes though because tomorrow I have some more sweets to post for you. It is Christmas after all, the season of eating chocolate for breakfast and it being completely [...]

Tri Delt Trash

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

When I tell you this story, you are going to have to agree not to commit me for being a crazy food fanatic, okay? Promise? So now that we’ve all agreed on that, here goes. Way back in the day when I graduated high school (I’m officially an old lady today, as today is my [...]

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 [...]

Nana’s Pear Salad

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

As a child, I absolutely loved pears, so my Nana would always prepare this salad for me. She’s a bit on the fancy side so she’d plate it up for me on lettuce leaves atop fancy china and let me use her real sterling silver cutlery. I’d eat up every bite that she ever fixed me and [...]

Hamburger Steak

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Yesterday I posted on my blog’s Facebook page (check it out, if you haven’t already…that way you get notifications when I post new recipes!) and asked what type of recipe y’all would like to see today. The overwhelming vote was for a quick main dish. Far too often we all fall into the weekday dinner [...]

Mae Mae’s Sweet Garlic Pickles

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Let me just start by saying that I’m posting this recipe, which will (next week) be followed by another recipe that uses these pickles as an ingredient.  You don’t want to miss out on that one! It’s super easy and delicious so don’t forget to check back for that one. Now, on to the pickles! [...]

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 [...]
