Flea Market Brownie Muffins

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Those of you that live in the South have no doubt heard of the Canton Flea Market. Well this massive gathering takes place in my hometown of the big ole city of Canton, Mississippi! Still not sure of where it is? Have you ever heard of these movies – “A Time To Kill”, “My Dog [...]

Bacon & Onion Finger Sandwiches

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Here in the deep South, it’s very rare that you attend a gathering where there isn’t some sort of finger sandwich tray. We love our sandwiches down here, but what we love even more is tiny sandwiches that are filled with yummy things like bacon and cheese. What’s not to love? Every good Southern cook [...]

Cinnamon Sugar “Danish”

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Variations of this recipe are all over the place, mostly in old cookbooks that I got from my grandmother when she moved. I went to visit her one day and she had a box full of cookbooks sitting in her garage and said she was fixing to take them to give away. My goodness, my [...]

Favorite Fruit Salad

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

I call this recipe Favorite Fruit Salad, because it’s just that…everyone’s favorite fruit salad. My husband is the only one that I know that has ever tasted this yummy treat and not liked it. But then again, he’s a little weird so that doesn’t surprise me. HA! Anyway, this is another simple dish that you [...]

Mississippi Caviar

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Did you guys miss me the last couple of weeks? Sorry for not posting, but at least I have a good excuse. I was in Boston with my little HERO (my son) while he underwent numerous procedures and his 17th surgery. We had access to a kitchen, but needless to say cooking was not high [...]

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

This yummy recipe comes to you from yet another friend…I love it when friends are willing to share their recipes! This is one super easy, delicious cake. I happened to have fresh Louisiana strawberries on hand so I sliced those little babies up and topped them with some sugar, and left them to macerate. They [...]

Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly

Friday, April 8th, 2011

I know this isn’t so much a “recipe” as it is an idea, but it still qualifies to be posted here in my humble opinion. This is one of those all-time favorite Southern appetizers that can be found on almost any buffet table, wedding reception, birthday party, pretty much any gathering you can imagine. I [...]

Cheesy Ritz Dip

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Does this photo entice you to look further? Yummy, cheesy goodness at it’s best is lying just ahead for you! I’ve seen this dip in every single community cookbook I’ve ever purchased, and with good reason…it’s absolutely delicious and one of the easiest things to make! I first tried a similar version of this dip [...]

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Yep, you guessed it! This is another recipe straight from my famous Mae Mae! I’m sure that you are now catching on to how great of a cook she really was. I remember, with this salad in particular, she’d go through phases. She’d make it over and over for a couple of weeks and then [...]

Pimento & Cheese

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Not many things are as Southern as Pimento & Cheese. I know around here every family has their own variation of the classic spread. Our family’s version is from none other than my Mae Mae! I know you’ve all heard alot about her, but you just might as well get used to it because a [...]
