Birds are chirping.  Flowers are in bloom.  Grass is growing ~ we’ve already mowed twice, which means it’s going to be a long mowing season!  But spring is here and I love it. I have plans this spring to paint two of our exterior doors and one wooden […]

Grits for Breakfast ~ one of my favorites

I think there must be a bit of the south in me because I LOVE grits ~ for breakfast or dinner, and cooked almost any way. The word “grits” is derived from the Old English word “grytt”, which means coarse meal.  It originally referred to wheat and other cooked cereals but now refers to ground […]

Mustard Tomato Pie [aka Pizza]

This is about the most unusual pizza I’ve ever heard of. It’s also the most unusual pizza I’ve ever made or tasted. Though unusual, it’s knock-your-socks-off delicious. So here’s the story. I live in the western United States where we have regular old pizza ~ thin crust, thick crust, or deep-dish, and topped with the […]

Crunchy Coleslaw

This crunchy coleslaw is my new favorite cabbage salad.  In fact, I have two bags of pre-cut coleslaw mix in my refrigerator right now just so I can make this salad at any given moment.  It has the necessary characteristics that make it a great cabbage salad ~ good crunch and lots of flavor.  Plus […]

Great Books [#2]

                    Even though this isn’t the type of book I normally like to read, The Alliance is one of my favorite books.   Gerald Lund wrote this fast-paced, futuristic story that takes place eighteen years after the majority of civilization ended due to a nuclear holocaust. […]

Bran Muffins

I think there must be about a million different bran muffin recipes floating around out there, and probably everyone has their own personal favorite.  This is mine.  It’s moist, chewy, and hearty.  I usually make it with all-purpose flour but occasionally make it with white whole wheat flour which gives it a denser texture.  I […]

Old-Fashioned Vegetable Beef Soup

      On a cold wintery day this plain old-fashioned vegetable beef soup is perfect for lunch or dinner.  It’s so hearty and filling without being heavy and has just a bit of spiciness from the pepper sauce, but it can easily be left out you don’t want yours spicy. We love it served up […]
