Blackberry Lemon Shortcake

on Jun 18th 2010

A few weeks ago, I posted my great grandmother’s recipe for shortcake.  My mom would make shortcake and serve it one of two ways – either smothered with hot fudge sauce or topped with sweetened strawberries and cream.  The shortcake was such a hit here with our kids, I’ve created a lemon shortcake and served it with […]

Chocolate Gravy

on Jun 7th 2010

I can’t believe I’ve lived in the south all my life, and just now had my first taste of chocolate gravy.  WOW! I’ve been missing out.  This recipe is so easy, our daughter made it while I rolled out the biscuit dough.  Thanks Autumn for the recipe.  I had extra half-n-half on hand that was […]

Cinnamon Rolls for Mother’s Day

on May 6th 2010

Although I’ve been passionate about cooking for many years, my first “going public” attempt was about 2 years ago – when Channel 4 came to our kitchen and filmed Better Cinnamon Rolls for a Mother’s Day Brunch Segment. Since then, with the help of my smart hubby, was launched and we now have over […]

Pumpkin Nut Bread

on Oct 22nd 2009

I’ve already made 2 batches of Pumpkin Nut Bread.  The first time I deviated from my favorite stand by recipe, which was my mother’s, and made Paula Deen’s.  To sum up the difference I will quote Micah, “Mom, can you make your recipe next time?  It’s a lot better.”  This recipe is simple and pretty […]

In 2003, dear hubby and I visited New Orleans for his 40th birthday and our anniversary.  We enjoyed that trip immensely and were charmed by the city’s history, culture, architecture, and delicious food.  One of my fondest, most romantic memories of that trip was sitting outside Café DuMonde – eating my first Beignet and drinking […]

Tonya’s Cornbread Salad

on Jul 27th 2009

Growing up here in the south, our family would have a couple of meatless meals a week during the hot summer months.  Often our meals consisted of cornbread along side a bowl of pinto beans, garden fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and fried corn. So it is no surprise that I am a huge cornbread fan.  But […]

Blue Ribbon Blueberry Muffins

on Jul 11th 2009

I think my friend Karen should work up her own segment of Taracooks. Everything she cooks is wonderful and she brought me these muffins the same day she shared her banana bread. No wonder my pants are snug! She won a blue ribbon at the fair for these muffins and the recipe should be in […]

Karen’s Best Banana Bread

on Jul 3rd 2009

In a previous post, I made organic wheat free banana bread – which is pretty good, in my opinion.  However, when Karen brought me some of her home made banana bread – I instantly knew it was the best I’d ever tasted.  I was so glad she was willing to share her recipe with Taracooks.  […]
