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 […]

Sweet Barbecue Chicken

As food hacks go, this one is a good one. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in making something “from scratch” that I forget to take something already made and just make it better. Kinda like I do when I start with a boxed cake mix to make a great […]

Cashew Chicken Bowl Recipe

I recently reached the point of foraging for food in my kitchen!  Like an episode of “Chopped”, I have gotten into finding things and trying to come up with something good to eat.  This recipe is inspired by a close to expiration bottle of Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger Dressing and […]

1916 Banana Nut Bread

I am so excited about a cookbook that my mother and father-in-law have passed on to me!  It is called Fredericksburg Home Kitchen Cook Book and it was originally published in 1916.  The last time it was revised and enlarged was in 1957. The book is full of what I […]
