Flipped Out Casserole Appetizers

Life is busy.  It’s busy enough with work, church, school, taking care of home, family, etc., but every now and again life gets REALLY busy.  Silly, stupid busy.  You begin to lose sleep and worry how you’ll meet all your responsibilities.  Even the ones you have imposed upon yourself, such as writing a weekly foodRead More

O Happy Pear

On Wednesday I posted a small tease on what today’s blog would be – pear salad.  I quickly discovered based on a few of your comments online and several offline that this particular recipe is one that people either love or hate; no in between whatsoever.  Some of you even said you had never heardRead More

Be a Lady (Finger) and Eat Your Okra

The Story: Being a southerner means that most of us grew up eating very similar things, in particular when it comes to vegetables and preparation of food.  Most of the United States thinks all southerners fry everything and are overweight and unhealthy.  I won’t argue their point because we know in some cases this isRead More

A Match Made in Food Heaven

The Story:   We’re back after a nice break for Easter.  We were especially blessed to spend Easter weekend with Cas’ brother and sister-in-law visiting from Arizona.  They got to play guinea pigs for a new cake experiment and I think the results proved pretty good.   Recently I saved a recipe from another foodRead More

Happy Easter from Food Flippers

As mentioned in Wednesday’s blog, we are taking the day off to celebrate Easter and spend time with Cas’ brother and his wife visiting from Arizona.  We wanted to take a minute to wish all our Christian friends a blessed Easter Sunday and all our Jewish friends a good Passover.  Make today count whether youRead 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

A Pesto Manifesto

The Story:   Every decade has trends that set the stage for what’s popular.  This happens in all categories: fashion, food, media, music, books, cars, etc. etc.  The early 2000’s brought us MySpace (remember that?), the start of veganism and iPods, just to name a few.  The 20-teens bring us kale, Snapchat and PokemonGo.  Read 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
