on Mar 29th 2011

Growing up in the south, banana pudding was a favorite treat prepared by both my Grandmothers.  I never met anyone who did not like banana pudding, until I met my husband.  During our courting days he agreed to eat a whole banana IF I would drink a glass of boiled custard.  I still owe him […]

If the thought of dry traditional meatloaf topped with ketchup lacks appeal, why not try giving meatloaf a little ZING?!  I like to make miniature portions of this Southern classic with Mild Rotel and top the little loaves with Restaurant Style Salsa.  And a small can of evaporated milk is the secret ingredient to keeping […]

Sunday Dinner Pot Roast

on Apr 20th 2010

Some things are just too easy, like Sunday Dinner Pot Roast. I can’t think of an easier “company’s comin’” meal than pot roast. As my family sat around the table Sunday, there was little conversation while they devoured beef and potatoes. I remember someone saying, “Mmm, I just LOVE beef!” The prep time for this […]
