I frequently hear from people that they struggle making their own sausages, regardless if they process and grind their own wild game or get ground meat from a processor. The chief complaint is the meat is gamey or dry/poor texture. I can empathize. My sausage making has been a ‘want to do/failure/sometimes okay/randomly good’ cycle. […]
I’ve really taken advantage of this summer, like no other. Twenty two years in the military, three years in management, a year of floundering around, and school last year and really never the time to really enjoy a summer. This year I feel as if I’m headed on a path, my keel starting to even […]
This is the last in my series of recipes for Breakfast in Bed. In my opinion, I saved the best for last. But then again, it’s no secret, my love for all things citrusy. It’s a simple easy dish, there are very few ingredients that make up this dish, which is always a winner in […]
In my last post, I mentioned that I was going to be doing a “Breakfast in Bed” cooking class; on the menu was Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordials, Glazed Grapefruit, Sunrise Champagne Cocktail and this French Toast. My ‘adopted’ grandkids loved this, as a matter of fact they ate more than McGyver and I did! What […]
I think this is my first food post since Secret Recipe Club last month! I’m delighted to say that this recipe is a great one to come back with. If you haven’t heard me talk about SRC before, it’s a bloggers club that works a lot like a Secret Santa. Each member is assigned another […]

Heaven on plate that’s […]
Raise your hand if you grew up with a box of Bisquick in your pantry. We used it for biscuits, pancakes and the popular Impossible pie.
When Easter is hopping around the corner the first food that comes to mind for me is always eggs. More than any other food, eggs represent Easter. Colorfully dyed eggs, plastic filled eggs, cheap shiny grass as a nest for them. Eggs are a birth, a beginning so is Easter and so is Spring.
This week’s BWW submission “Iced Whisk”. Susan at The Well Seasoned Cook hosts this weekly culinary black and white photography event. If you’d like to know more about it you can find out about it here. I enjoy participating, besides seeing all the beautiful B&W eye candy, there’s zero commitment. In other words, participate if […]
It’s no secret, I have a split personality. I don’t mean like Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, it’s more of redneck/white trash versus socially refined, kind of way. In other words, you can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can’t take the trailer park out of the girl. I don’t live […]
