Stewart’s: Old Fashioned Root Beer and Hot Dog Stand

While growing up and living in West Virginia, I took many things for granted including really good hot dogs. There are so many places to get unpretentious, delicious hot dogs throughout the state that I did not know that it was not true of everywhere else. Granted there are many states that have a claim […]

Skeenies Hot Dogs Are Still A Yummy Treat

On Route 21, just outside of Charleston, West Virginia is a small hot dog stand called Skeenies. They have been a favorite of mine since I was six years old. My parents started taking me to an allergy specialist in Charleston when I was six after I had some major allergy issues. It was before […]

Foodworks Does Work for a Nice Brunch

Foodworks is a unique, modern southern cuisine restaurant located in the North Shore area of Chattanooga, Tennessee in an old knitting mill. I had previously been to the antiques mall side of the old mill.  It was neat, but the ambiance in the restaurant was even better. It was very clean and the decor showed […]

Skillet Stuffed Peppers

I must confess. . .I have changed the name of this recipe. It is from my Aunt Nina and it was titled “Stuffed Mangoes in a Skillet.” No, I have not changed one of the main ingredients. Green peppers were/are called mangoes in Eastern Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and Indiana. They may have been/be called […]

Maple Baked Salmon

My daughter loves fish. Salmon is her favorite non-crustacean. Salmon is one of the few fish I actually like.   So, I have learned to cook salmon beyond making salmon cakes. I tried several salmon recipes that did not quite fit my family’s tastes before taking flavors that we liked in some of the recipes and […]

Bow Bread Knife: How Did I Ever Live Without You?

I am still working on my bread baking skills. In the meantime, whenever I can swing it, I buy bread from a local bakery. We have several local places that sell the really good Artisan breads. I love fresh bread. It stays fresher if I slice it as we use it than when the bakery […]

Easy Pepperoni and Pasta Casserole

Whether it is a quickly prepared meal for a busy weeknight or a dish needed to take to a friend who is ill or had a death in the family, casseroles are my “go-to” dishes. Besides being comfort food, they usually reheat well and can often be frozen…a great benefit when things are hectic. The […]

Diner, Drive-Ins and Dives: The Book

I love the Food Network program Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I love the concept, the host, and the execution. Most of all though, I love the places they feature. However, I was not sure I would even like a book about the television show. For me, much of the appeal of the show is the […]

Delicious Chinese Cuisine at The Formosa

I am not a fan of the typical Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant. Some of them are good enough and some of them are really bad. In fact, between them and the carry-out Chinese restaurants I used to frequent in years past, I thought I would never have really superior Chinese cuisine. I was wrong. I […]
