Corn Casserole or Corn Spoon Bread

This corn casserole can also be called a spoon bread because it contains an egg. However, only one egg. It is not the truly souffle-like spoon bread I had at a quaint inn in Virginia many years ago. It is laden with cheddar cheese…. absent from my inn spoon bread experience. However, it is very […]

How to Store Fresh Herbs

It is time once again to get my herb garden in the ground. Unfortunately, it is the only thing I have had success growing in recent years since moving here. However, I am thankful that I have at least been able to grow a variety of herbs that I love. While I have the herb […]

Cream of Potato Soup with Watercress

Spring is finally here! It makes me think of celebrating the Irish and Easter, planting potatoes and peas, enjoying flowers and showers, gathering dandelion greens and watercress…wait what?

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.

Scrapple and Apples

The fall seems to always bring out the desire in me for comfort food.  Perhaps, the cooler temperatures have me wanting something more hearty than my preferred light summer cuisine.  Perhaps,  wonderful memories of fun family-centered falls of the past have me wanting my Mom’s cooking.  Whatever it is, my husband must have some of […]

A Better Breakfast Sandwich

I believe the English muffin breakfast sandwiches I make at home are better than those I can buy at a fast food restaurant. Why? My sandwiches cost me less and I control what I put in them. The money saved may not be dramatic but it can add up. Locally, I spend around $2.00 at […]

An Evening at Cooking School

My husband sent me to cooking school last weekend. Okay, so I had been wanting to go to one of the Taste of Home Cooking Schools for probably a decade or more, but I was never able to get tickets and/or not be teaching on the same night as the school before we moved. After […]
