Flipped Out Food

  Let’s talk weird food combinations. We all know of some. Lately I’ve heard about the local snow cone stand coming out with a dill pickle snow cone for the summer. Eeeoww. I love dill pickles but not in my snow cone. What about peanut butter on a hamburger? Peanut butter and bologna? In fact,Read More

Cigarettes, Skillet Corn and Nanner Puddin’

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

Stop the Mousse in Its Tracks

The Story:   Rarely am I caught off guard on things, especially special occasions and events.  I’m a planner so I start making a list of things that need to happen weeks before the actual day arrives.   Wednesday was Valentine’s Day and also Ash Wednesday.  Cas and I normally do not do Valentine’s DayRead More
