I get a lot of questions from folks on Facebook, comments on the site, and email asking how I'm doing and how I've been since the accident. When last I left off, I had taken my first steps and was learning to walk again. And from there I kinda left you hanging. It wasn't that I meant to leave you hanging, it was just that I could walk again and had some serious work to do to get back up to par ... Continue Reading

I love to see my kid’s faces light up when they come home to wonderful smells filling the house. And slow cooked apple anything is sure to make your house smell as good as it gets this side of heaven. As my kids have gotten older they have come to love “custom” warm drinks, like the ones served in coffee houses and such. This slow cooked apple cider is the perfect treat at the end of a school day ... Continue Reading

Syllabub is a dessert that has been around for centuries. I first heard of it in a Tamera Alexander novel (which coincidentally features one of my recipes in the back!) and since it was the beloved favorite of one of the lead characters, my interest as a cook was piqued. I immediately made a version of it and understood full well what all the hub bub was about! Since then, I've heard this recipe ... Continue Reading

I hope you've had a productive week. It feels so good to accomplish something, doesn't it? I've been busy cleaning out my house, a project that won't be finished anytime too soon I'm afraid! Over the years, as the kids have grown and our needs have changed, we've acquired quite a bit of clothing that no longer fits, furniture and items we no longer need or have space for, and other assorted ...

This is one of my son's all time favorite suppers and I shared it in Taste of the South's Easy Southern Suppers collector's issue, which is available on newsstands now (more info at the bottom of this post). I think it must be a teenage boy thing to love chicken fried rice. Brady used to ask us to go get it as takeout for him whenever the hankering hit him until I developed a quick and easy ...

Christy Jordan's Super-fast succotash

When it comes to good old fashioned Southern cooking, my favorite things are usually the vegetables, most of the time even more than the desserts! I love garden fresh veggies, especially medleys of them, seasoned up just right, and served fresh off the stove. Succotash is akin to manna from Heaven for me, and I don't think it's blasphemy to say that considering God made all of the ingredients - ... Continue Reading
