As we’re about to step into all those fun cookouts, summer get togethers, and even family reunions, I thought I’d share this favorite recipe for Southern Baked Beans. These Southern Baked Beans really go so perfectly with so many dishes I serve during this season – like grilled chicken, hamburgers, and everything in [...]
Gumbo. THIS gumbo. There are no two ways about it. You need it in every way possible. I mentioned yesterday when I shared about making Blueberry Cobbler that my husband and I tried a few new recipes this past weekend. He was host for another Scout group at the hangar for a few activities and [...]
Blueberry Cobbler. Doesn’t the name just make your mouth begin to water? It sure does mine. This past weekend, my husband hosted another Scout group (not Little Buddy’s group) at the hangar for their rain gutter regatta and space derby. Since we weren’t in charge of the actual Scout group, we decided it would [...]
Crab Stuffed Mushrooms make such a perfect, warm weather meal. While they are perfect for a family meal, they are also excellent for entertaining. I like to make these crab stuff mushrooms ahead of time and then bake them right before serving for dinner.

Speaking of which, if you are in the area of the National Cornbread Festival this weekend, [...]
Honey Mustard Dressing is one of my family’s favorite dressings to use with chicken fingers, on a simple salad, or even on sandwiches from time to time. One of the best things about making my own Honey Mustard Dressing is that I know exactly what all goes into the jar as I’m mixing it [...]
Okay, so Coconut Cream Pie is about the best thing ever. Really. It is practically summer in pie form. And this, my friends, is a Coconut Cream Pie to beat all Coconut Cream Pies. Well, at least in my book.
There’s just something about a grilled cheese sandwich that is totally comforting. Like a giant hug from your grandmother when you had a really rough day or a warm, cuddly quilt on a rainy afternoon, grilled cheese sandwiches just feel good. The other night as we were driving home, I asked my husband what his [...]
Lima beans with ham make a wonderful, hearty meal. It’s actually one of our favorites for serving anytime during the year. And there are many nights this is exactly what we have for supper. Perfect served with Southern Cornbread, like these where I’ve take my recipe and made them into cornbread muffins for easy [...]
