  • Miss Regatta pageant
  • Peanut butter fudge cookies really ‘To Die for’

    What a wonderful  Independence Day celebration we had at the home of Joe and Sandy Beall in Ghent on Saturday, July 2.

    They do this every year and we feel so privileged to be on their guest list. It has become such  a tradition that even our grandson, Justin, doesn’t want to miss out on all of the festivities and food. Joe and Sandy plan months ahead for this big event – actually, I can honestly say a year in advance. We have already received our “pre-invite” for July 7, 2012.

  • Herb garden flourishes, inspiring tarragon recipe

    Oh my goodness, do I have tarragon this year. It has exploded into what I would call a bush of tarragon.

    That is okay though because it makes me really feel like a good gardener, even though I’m not. I am just lucky. 

    Would you believe that I have plants finally coming up that I planted a couple of years ago and thought they were dead? I guess with all of this rain, they finally decided to raise their lovely heads. It is so amazing.  I truly feel blessed.

  • Recipe for fluffy pancakes inspired by grandmother

    I noticed on Facebook that some of you mentioned meals you had fixed for your husbands and fathers for Father’s Day.  In fact, I see a lot more comments regarding what you have fixed for dinner, a dessert you made, brunches and so on. 

    I have heard, in the past, “Oh I don’t cook or I don’t like to cook,” but with the economy the way it is now, it has forced many of us to go back to cooking.  I am so impressed with everyone!

    Cooking can be fun, and it is another good way to express yourself.
