Evil, Evil, Evil
Seriously, this is bacon gravy--you read correctly--BACON GRAVY.  Hubby and I were watching Triple D on the Food Network channel. Guy Fieri mentioned the whole show would be filmed at his home town, Ferndale, CA. We've been there! Did the tourist thing of l...

Everything more beautiful....
This picture and words seem so appropriate right now. No matter what is going on in your life, you can set about and look or create some beauty. I was shopping the other day in a hardware store. I had to buy some gardening supplies and happily went outside ...

Visiting a friend, I was served a most delicious lunch. Along with a creamy pasta dish, this side dish was so good, I begged for the recipe. She muttered something about it being a "family secret recipe" and it didn't seem likely I could extract the recipe ...

Fall Can't Get Here Soon Enough: Whipped Cinnamon Pumpkin Butter
I saw the photo, it looked so enticing. Reading the recipe, I knew this is a winner. I must do this up. I can pretend it's for the grandkids. Gramma likes to make them pancakes, so I say, or pumpkin waffles. They love those. Are you following my rationale? ...
