Grilled Shrimp

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Grilled shrimp sounds simple enough, right? So then why can’t many restaurants get it right? I mean, if you work in a restaurant as a chef of all things, you should know how to cook grilled shrimp in my opinion. But I find that time after time, restaurants don’t even cook it right. I have [...]

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 [...]

Blueberry Muffins

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

What is more classic than a plain ole blueberry muffin? Not much, in my opinion. I remember when I was growing up my mom made two types of muffins on a regular basis…bran muffins (I’ll share that recipe one day) and blueberry muffins. The bran muffins were always homemade but the blueberry muffins always were [...]

Sun Dried Tomato Dip

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

It’s been one of those no-good days again…the kind I seem to be having far too many of lately. I guess that means that I need to make something chocolate to counteract the blues, huh? That always helps. Or at least that’s what I tell myself and that seems to help. Chocolate makes the world [...]

Chocolate Chip Milky Way Bars

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Not much to really say about these yummy bars, except that they are out-of-this-world delicious! I got this recipe from a sweet friend who is a member of the Junior League of Jackson and volunteers her time at the local Children’s Cancer Clinic to play with the children. They usually have tons of projects for [...]

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 [...]

Turkey & Ham Panini

Monday, July 11th, 2011

A sandwich is just a sandwich, right? WRONG! Not in my opinion at least. Take a couple pieces of bread, throw on some mayonnaise and meat and you have a run of the mill sandwich. Bleh! That doesn’t sound appetizing to anyone, except of course my five-year-old that would live off of turkey sandwiches if [...]

“Crack” Dip

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

When I was still a part of the working world beforeĀ I had my children, this dip was required at every single gathering in the office. I can’t even remember who in the office originally shared the recipe, but what I do remember is that every single time it was brought it didn’t last long! That’s [...]
