Old-Fashioned Rhubarb Cake

This old fashioned rhubarb cake is somewhere between a coffee cake, short-bread cake, and a sheet cake. It is good for dessert or breakfast. It is great when served warm with whipped topping/cream, ice cream, or doused in milk. As with most cakes, bring ingredients to room temperature before mixing for best results.

Lamb and Pasta Casserole

This lamb and pasta casserole is a result of me not having a plan for dinner, but needing something quick. I didn’t have enough zucchini to make Stuffed Zucchini, so I got a little creative. This dish is quick, easy and yummy. It is also really great without any zucchini…in fact, I think I like […]

Having leftover chicken or pork after grilling or barbecuing is wonderful. It means you have the opportunity to make some great dishes including Brunswick Stew and BBQ Quesadillas. Inspired by one of my favorite dishes at one of my favorite barbecue restaurants, I started making bbq quesadillas with leftover take-out pulled pork…from the same restaurant. […]

Cold Oven Pound Cake aka. “Smelly Cake”

My dad did not really cook; fried eggs, oatmeal, toast, and grilled cheese was pretty much the extent of his solo endeavors. However, he did attempt to make a cake on his own…twice. I believe my sister ended up helping him when he made his first, a pineapple upside-down cake. So, I believe the cold […]

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken in Nashville, TN

Crunchy, moist, delicious, and fried to perfection…that is my best description of the Southern chicken from Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. I think it was the best fried chicken I have ever eaten. Nashville is known for a local specialty, Hot Fried Chicken…spicy hot. Some of the hot chicken places only offer varying degrees of heat…no […]

Mom’s Creamed Peas and Baby Potatoes

My mom loved creamed spring peas and baby potatoes fresh from the garden. She made the best that I have ever eaten. She did not fix them very often, which made them even more of a treat. Despite my best attempts to make them the same way she did, I can not get mine to […]

Mandarin Orange Cake

A delicious, easy cake that is a great summertime treat is a Mandarin orange cake with its light, creamy pineapple frosting. Yum! Even when you don’t stir the Mandarin oranges enough to break them up and they sink to the bottom of the cake, the cake is still very good. Although, it is harder to […]
