while I was cooking two different soups this morning, my mom was also inspired to cook something, so while flipping through her Joy of Cooking book a recipe card popped out!

Old School recipe for cheese spread - ahhh can we say "YUMMY!" so here it is so it can not... Continue reading

I think one of the best things about my family is that we all sit down for a Sunday Supper! I consider my mother a gourmet cook- scratch that CHEF, she has no formal training, but her meals are by far restaurant quality! Our Sunday Suppers are not mac and cheese but pork loin, whole chicken, different cuts of beef... not for small appetites! Some of you (family and friends) know that my mom is recovering from lymphoma and this summer was a scare for my family. Despite my mom being sick, she still had a passion for cooking and...
