Spinach Dip (Popeye Would Be Proud)


I'm going to tell y'all something today and I need this to stay just between us. You see, I love Alabama.

If this secret gets out, though, I just might be deported. ... Continue Reading

*If you have a service member overseas, these cookies are my most requested recipe to send. They travel very well and stay moist. I've had packages take as long as three weeks to arrive, only still get rave reviews when I'd tucked these bars inside! If you can, send a package. It make a world of difference! These cookies were almost impossible to get a photo of. It seemed a soon as I cut ... Continue Reading

Meatloaf! Making, Freezing, and Small Batch Options!

Meatloaf - It's supposed to taste good, not look pretty :)

I received an email from one of my readers recently asking me how I make my meatloaf. You know after that email I was craving me some good old meatloaf! Its such a simple meal, and quite homely, but still so darn good! I often think my mother makes it purely so they can have meatloaf sandwiches with the leftovers the next day! One of the great things about meatloaf is the versatility in ... Continue Reading

My Radio Debut (such as it was!) Listen Here!


I had a great time on the CocktailCafe Mom Talk radio show! The other moms were fabulous women, so nice and welcoming! I've definitely got a learning curve. My main problem was, there were three other co-hosts and we couldn't see each other. Of course, you are supposed to jump right on in and start talking but I was worried about interrupting! (I have to work on getting in there!). They started ... Continue Reading
