Butternut Squash & Spinach Lasagna

While on the road the past 3 weeks going between California and Arizona, we discovered quite a few mom & pop joints (and yes they were joints, as they are the type of places that you would probably drive right past, but being married to Mr. Adventure, we usually don’t just drive by, we stop … Continue reading

Tex-Mex Casserole

    Finally getting unpacked and having a chance to catch up with magazines which came while we were on the road for 2 months, I came across this casserole which I want to make this week. We are truly back in the land of Tex-Mex, which we certainly take advantage of every Wednesday night. … Continue reading

Shrimp Creole…Paula Deen Style

Since we made a visit to eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant in Savannah, GA, whenever I see a recipe from her, I immediately know that I will go in my file to make. This recipe has the same ingredients as the creole we devoured in Augusta. 2 tables olive oil 11/2 cup diced green bell … Continue reading

Veggie Lasagna

Last night was great. After a whole month of not cooking, I took over my sister-in-laws kitchen. Since Janece has gone pretty much vegetarian, with exception to salmon, I tried to think of something I could cook that would meet her likes, but still fill up two 60 something yr old hubbies who think that … Continue reading

If it’s stuffed, I love it. This recipe is from days long ago. A family friend use to stuff her turkeys with this … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Tidbits

Last week I was watching a chef, who I cannot remember his name, showed a few ideas of how to decorate your table, without spending the money you were going to use to buy the matching jets from Neiman’s catalog. He used the miniature pumpkins and had one for each guests. Using a biscuit cutter, … Continue reading

Wild Mushroom Bread Pudding

I am in love with bread puddings of all kinds. In a new  BH&G Christmas book, this recipe jumped off the page. Well, not actually, but when I saw the picture of it, I wanted to jump in the kitchen and make it. A great meatless main dish or a wonderful side to any type … Continue reading

Finicky Frosty’s Fine Spaghetti

Last night, we (well, actually Frosty) was busy putting out lights on our patio so I would quit saying, “Frosty, I wish we could be the first ones on our street this year to put lights up.” So while he was outside, I got in the mood for Italian. I remembered this dish that I … Continue reading
