It’s not a good way to start a new year.  I have been confined to my house thus far this month of January because of an Upper Respiratory Infection.  I have had no appetite and have subsisted on mostly cereal and

In the over 6 years I have lived in Minden, this is only the second time I have been down with an Upper Respiratory Infection.  It really wiped me out for a few days.  I don’t know which is worse;

Crawfish Bread

There’s a scripture that says “Man cannot live by bread alone” but I think I could. I love bread – and this has been a lifelong love of mine too. It started back when I was a child and has

When I was a child, probably 4 to 5 years old, I remember my mother serving carrots and green peas cooked together as part of our meal.  I did not like it but she made me sit there until I

Crawfish Alfredo

With the colder weather coming on, I think about cooking comfort foods. I love anything thick, rich and hearty – it just makes sense to me. There’s nothing like cold weather outside and a warm oven inside. It just makes

pecan tarts

During the holidays, as far back as I can remember, my mama, Pat Brandon has made candies, cookies, breads and pecan tarts. Everybody wanted those pecan tarts. The person she always wanted to make sure got them though was John

Pecan Pie Cupcakes

Pecan Pie Cupcakes are one of the most sinful, decadent desserts I have ever made. I first saw the recipe on a Facebook recipe page, and knew I had to try it. It’s a super easy dessert to whip up

breakfast-enchiladas-2

When families gather during the holidays, the thing on most people’s minds is food. We think of the turkey, ham, sweet potato pie and cranberry sauce. But who ever thinks of breakfast? Breakfast is essential to getting the day started

Nancy’s Kitchen

My granddaughter and grandson-in-law, Cassie & John Rohrer, hosted Thanksgiving for the family this year.  They supplied the turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and dinner rolls.  Cassie’s mother (my daughter), Carol Farley, provided the vegetables and fruit salad.  My assignment

Pineapple Salad

One of my favorite things is coconut “anything.”  I realize there is some that do not like coconut but if you do this KEEPER would be so pretty on a Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinner table. I prepared it for

turkey casserole

We had family over for Thanksgiving but instead of turkey, we had a spiral ham. There is several ways to use leftover ham such as ham sandwiches, dry beans cooked with ham, ham casseroles, etc. There are plenty of ways

With the coming of Thanksgiving, there will be last minute preparations on birds, hams and other savory main dishes. There will be too many side dishes, including the green bean casseroles, cranberry sauce and yams, all with their own twists,

Hurricane Club- Soft-shell crab

I remember as a kid, when mom would make soft-shell crabs. It was always a special occasion, or somebody’s birthday. They are, and have always been very expensive to buy. But my daddy was a swamp man, before Swamp People

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  My best friend, Audrey Lawson from Bridge City, sent me this week’s recipe that would be an excellent and different addition to Thanksgiving dinner.  Although I have not tried it yet, I am sure

In late September, my cousin, Marjorie Clark, from Baton Rouge called me and asked if I wanted to travel with her to visit her brother and his wife, Howard E. (also my cousin of course) and Joyce Grant in the

Pecan pie says it all – fall, Thanksgiving and holiday dinner parties. I have personally never been to a holiday party where there wasn’t a pecan something or other. It’s just a Southern thing. These pecan pie cupcakes will be

peanut butter cheese ball

This item is perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas office parties. I have taken this to family gatherings and parties many times. Not only is it easy to make, but it can be made ahead of time and frozen or refrigerated.

While I have never tasted these, everybody who has eaten them tell me they are delicious. I like to make these for football game snacks, church gatherings or parties. They go great with Mexican dishes and a good cold beer,

Every once in a while, I run across a recipe that I want to cook right away. I love to change recipes up and make them my own creation. I found this rotisserie recipe by accident when I was looking
