The Best Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

I’m a Southern gal and that means I’m polite (mostly). I will politely (mostly) decline ice in my smoothies, strawberry or otherwise. The best Strawberry Smoothie recipes do not require ice! Ice is reserved for a Coconut Slush, a rainbow snow cone, or as rocks in my whiskey. Ice in a smoothie? Oh, mah dear, […]

Joy Bella The Waffle Recipe Maker

My sweet friend, Joy Bella, is a waffle recipe maker extraordinaire and has shared her recipe with me – and now you! How good are these waffles? So. Good.

How To: Easy No-Spatter Bacon Makin’

This OMT how-to is the easiest you’ll ever read here, unless I tell y’all to forget about the recipe and order out. The first time I made bacon, crispy-crunchy-bacon straight from the oven, I couldn’t stop telling folks about this life-changer (kinda like the life-changing steaming hard boiled eggs post). Weirdly, I forgot to write […]

Vanilla Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls. Those two words conjure many a memory for most of us. Throw in a vanilla twist and, oh, momma! Divine! I originally saw this recipe at Mel’s Kitchen a few years back (she tweaked the recipe from another) and made them almost immediately. They were just as you’d hope a little piece of […]

Irish Soda Bread

Have you ever made Irish Soda Bread?  I could eat it all day long.  Right out of the oven slathered in butter.  A few hours later toasted with jam.  At midnight, as is.  I love the stuff. If you’ve never made soda bread, this recipe is a good place to start.  Just be forewarned that […]

Funeral Food: Streusel Coffee Cake

Streusel Coffee Cake is a recipe that feeds a crowd.  Around these parts we call these dishes “funeral food.” You know what I mean. Funeral food is food you make to feed a crowd that doesn’t need much tending; it’s the kind of dish you put out on a buffet table and forget about. Comfort […]
