Deviled Chicken Recipe

1916 Deviled Chicken

You may have figured out I love taking really old recipes and revising them.  This was something I started doing when I had the restaurant and since then it has turned into a passion.  Hell, I even revise my own recipes over and over!  So, when my Aunt, my Mother-in-Law, […]

Squash and Okra Recipe

Southern Comfort Food Night!

When the garden starts to produce and the sun starts to become a little warmer outside I start searching for some Southern Comfort food.  I grew up on a farm, in a little bitty town called Fred, just a spit’n distance from Louisiana, where pick’n peas and shuck’n corn were […]
