Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

on Nov 17th 2014

I don’t know why I equate home made banana pudding with church gatherings, but I still do. I have pleasant memories of attending many a church social where somebody’s grandmother had made banana pudding from scratch. I have always been fond of home made banana pudding. This is a southern tradition I hope never dies. […]

Better Butter

on Jan 30th 2012

Organic fruits and vegetables are pretty comparable in price these days to their mass produced relatives. However, they far surpass conventionally grown foods in taste and nutrition. I always buy organic milk, organic orange juice, and organic […]

Southern Fried Pies

on Feb 7th 2010

Both my Grandmothers were excellent fried pie makers.  I remember the process seemed to be quite involved and the end result was a special treat for family gatherings or even for birthdays.  I’ve never had a store bought fried pie that came close to matching the taste of those good old fashioned, home made pastries.  […]

Homemade Chicken Salad

on Apr 17th 2009

Here’s a quick and easy spring and summer pleaser.  When I make this recipe, folks can’t believe it is actually made with canned chicken breast.  Sometimes I simply place the chicken salad over a bed of greens.  Sometimes I make those pretty little mini pastries.  But most of the time, this chicken salad goes on […]
