Quinoa for Breakfast

Cooked Breakfast Cereal.  Do you like it or not? I really don’t like breakfast cereal of any kind except I do like grits for breakfast (recipe here) and occasionally I like to snack on dry cereal out of the package but that’s about it. Quinoa.  Do you like it or not? I have to admit […]

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

One of the things we like about these sour cream blueberry muffins is that they aren’t very sweet.  But these little beauties are light and tender and the pop of blueberries give them just the right amount of fruity flavor.  I use frozen blueberries and they work perfectly. I think these muffins would also be […]

Our Favorite Cornbread [Thick & Moist]

When I was a newlywed I received this cornbread recipe from my grandmother and it’s been our favorite ever since.  We’ve tried a few other recipes here and there but always come back to this one because it’s so thick and moist and rich in cornmeal flavor.  It’s a delicious, basic, no-fail cornbread recipe. We […]

Freezing Fresh Ginger

Ginger is one of those spices that’s nice to have on hand, and fresh is so much better than the dried and ground stuff in a jar.  It will keep fresh in the freezer for a long, long time so don’t be nervous about buying a full root. My preferred way to prepare the ginger for […]

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Have you ever smelled the cinnamon roasted nuts at the mall or an arena event?  I think they smell so delicious. Whenever I attend a sporting event with my hubby and I smell them I say I’m going to buy some, but then I always change my mind because they’re kind of expensive.  I’m glad […]

Quiche Lorraine

Remember that “Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche” phrase back in the 1980s?  I thought it was weird. I’m not sure where it originated.  Was it just a joke?  I’ve never known, but it probably was. Way back when I was a newlywed I bought a little quiche cookbook {maybe to test out that theory?} and […]

Cold Veggie Pizza – My Version of a Pampered Chef Favorite

Last summer I was reminded of this old Pampered Chef Cold Veggie Pizza when my blogger friend Maureen over at Red Cottage Chronicles posted about it (hop on over and check out all of her delicious recipes, especially the desserts!).  I used to make it every once in a while but then forgot all about […]

What I’m Reading this Summer

I’ve finally finalized the list of books I want to read this summer. A couple of them are light, quick reading books, two are so-called “children’s books,” some are thought provoking and a bit “serious,” and one is just fluff.  Hopefully each of them, in their own way, will help me grow as a person and understand […]
