Green with Goddess

The Story:   Summertime is definitely upon us and it’s the time of year I beg off from cooking.  Heating the oven is like turning the air off and who wants to do that?  I begin looking for recipes that require little to no heat from the stove or oven.  Naturally my mind drifts toRead More

Let Them Eat Cake Pie!

The Story:   Recently we were discussing food items that we love but had not seen on a menu in ages.  Boston Cream Pie was one that we both brought up.  This got me to thinking that I needed to revisit this little jewel and give my hand a try at making one.  I willRead More

Lord of the Onion Rings

The Story:   It all started last Saturday night while dining with some close friends.  We were trying out a new eatery (to us) and there was a wait.  As we were conversing, hoping our name would be called sooner rather than later, a waitress came walking out of the kitchen area to deliver someRead More

Molded Memories

The Story:   The past few weeks we’ve been taking a walk down our childhood memory lane of foods from the 1970’s and early 80’s.  We reviewed and flipped Pear Salad, Hamburger Helper and Egg Custard Pie.  It’s only fitting we add one more to that list and if you guessed Jell-O from our WednesdayRead More

Why Is Joe Sloppy?

The Story:   Happy National Sloppy Joe Day!  In Wednesday’s blog I took a tiny walk down memory lane from elementary school days and in particular Friday’s “fun food” options.  Last week when I decided to bring Sloppy Joe to our dining table, I had no idea that today, Sunday, March 18 was a dayRead More

Cafeteria Memories

Unlike Cas, I attended a very small elementary school.  There were probably 200 kids in the whole 1-6 give or take a few.  I have many fond memories of elementary school days.  Some of my favorite teachers come from those times and a few set me on the creative path I am now living.  IRead More

It’s all in the bag….

It’s 8:30 in the evening after a banquet that I had to cover for the radio station. The first few times I did these events it was kinda fun playing radio guy and getting free food and such. After a few years and with 60 fast approaching, starting the day at 5am and finishing 15Read More

Lettuce Live with Peas and Hominy

The Story:   We’ve pretty much spent the last several months focusing on flips – recipes that start out in some other variation or form – made over in a new way.  This week I decided to focus on the “making the old, new again” portion of our blog.   Hominy.  Most of us areRead More
