I must confess. I love Campbell's Bean with Bacon Soup. I know. It's canned. I'm supposed to love all things from scratch. Well, actually, now I do. This soup smells exactly like Campbell's but it tastes even better because of... Continue reading

Taylor's Drive In. Open since 1947 in downtown Springfield (MO). 139 Memorial Plz, Springfield MO. North and West of the Shrine Mosque. Mmmm….Taylor's. My first thought on opening any jury duty notice over the past 35 years has been "Fantastic!... Continue reading

Since my husband works evenings several nights a week, DJing at (five) local radio stations, or "slaving over a hot mic" as he calls it, I'm often left to scrounge up dinner on my own. Don't get me wrong. I... Continue reading

I baked this Orange Cranberry Bundt Cake as dessert when a couple of good friends came over to dinner. In full disclosure, not only did they come to dinner, they brought dinner. I needed a special dessert to stand up... Continue reading

I'm a firm believer in Ecclesiastes' saying "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.." It's true for everything in life, including the sometime mundane things in life like cooking. I love spending hours in... Continue reading

T Two of Gene's favorite eaty drinky things in the whole world are meatballs and BBQ. One of my favorite things in the whole eaty drinky world is Dr. Pepper. Yep, prune juice drinkers unite! (Actually, that's a myth. Dr.... Continue reading

Mediterranean Chicken Spaghetti Salad is a cold pasta salad that makes for a wonderfully refreshing summer meal. Pasta, lovely fresh veggies, and rotisserie chicken also make for a quick prep that can be made ahead and is even better the... Continue reading

I don't pretend for even a minute to be any kind of authority on Indian cuisine. My experience is limited to a few heavenly experiences at the local Indian buffet at Taj Mahal, a few jarred sauces I poured over... Continue reading

There's nothing like warm, chewy, full-blooded (so to speak, yikes!) oatmeal dense enough to eat off of a napkin along with a cup of ginger lemon tea while reading a good book on a cold winter's morning. No wimpy packets... Continue reading

What do you get when you baste baked chicken with Auntie Miranda's homemade low sugar carrot cake jam? One DE-lish-ous dinner! Super easy too. In the oven inside 10 minutes. If you skin the chicken, it's also a great diet... Continue reading

Our friends, Jeff and Dee, gave us this recipe a few months ago and, for the first time, I had all the ingredients in the house at the same time. Well, let me be honest, I'd lost the actual recipe... Continue reading

Quesadillas are one of those Tex-Mex restaurant dishes that's just as good, if not better!, made at home. Perfect for a family, they're easily customizable, delicious, and both quick and easy to make. Anyone can make these and I'm talking... Continue reading

I kept seeing "energy balls" or "energy bites" all over Pinterest and wondered what was up with that. Well, now I know! They are 1 ounce bites (which actually means about 3 bites) of sweet and savory deliciousness wrapped around... Continue reading

One of our favorite places to eat, when I'm not cooking at home, is a locally owned restaurant, Arris Pizza on Republic Road. Started in Jefferson City, MO in 1961 by Arris Pardalos, we're lucky to have one his few... Continue reading

Remember when broccoli salad was called Trees N Raisins salad because that's basically all it was, with maybe some sunflower seeds? Me too. This is so much yummier (and even healthier too). And ultimately customizable to what's in your fridge... Continue reading

Besides healthy, my key themes these days seem to be "quick", "easy", and "adaptable", as in, what's already in my fridge/pantry? But don't forget tasty. Of course the ultimate is, always is: does it taste yummy? This meets all of... Continue reading

Magic Cheesecake, like all the other "magic" cheesecakes is one that forms its own crust. For those of us who can skip (meaning it's not our favorite part) the graham cracker crust, it's perfect. It forms a slight crust but... Continue reading
