Fruit Cobbler

Oh, mah babies. THIS. This cobbler came out of my oven smelling of sweet summer fruit and light cakey droolgoodness. I had to remind myself not to take a bite until it had cooled enough so it wouldn’t remove the skin from the roof of my mouth. THE TORTURE! As a good Southern gal, I […]

Natural Peanut Butter Peanut Butter Cookies

Natural Peanut Butter Peanut Butter Cookies

That title is a mouthful, right? So are these cookies: What I mean to say, however oddly stated, is that I made traditional peanut butter cookies with non-traditional peanut butter, aka natural peanut butter.  You know, the stuff you gotta stir.  The stuff with two ingredients: ground peanuts and salt.  The stuff with no sugar […]

Summer eatin’ is the best eatin’ for me.  The abundance of fresh fruits and veggies makes a happy happy gal, especially because all the ingredients for pico de gallo are in season.  YUM!

Funeral Food: Broccoli Casserole

Broccoli Casserole

When my grandmother passed, her neighbor, a literal little old lady, walked up to the house with a covered dish in hand, tripped, and she and her Broccoli Casserole went down.  Luckily for us, she was okay and the lid on the casserole was on tight, so while it appeared misshapen and unidentifiable, the tasty […]
