Heart shaped Butternut Squash

Heart shaped Butternut Squash

It has been awhile since I’ve posted a heart shaped food, so here is heart shaped butternut squash. Some foods are commonly heart shaped. You see them often around Valentine ’s Day, but I enjoy taking any food, particularly the un-common ones and making them […]

Easy Fried Okra

Easy Fried Okra

My mother used to fry okra in the traditional, standard or common cut way – round slices.  Anyone who has ever battered and then turned all those little round pieces in a frying skillet knows how time consuming this is.  Once I was married and […]

Macaroni Frittata

Simple, easy Granola Cereal

Simple, easy Granola Cereal

Simple, easy Granola Cereal – and that I like it that way.  I enjoy cooking.  Often, I enjoy creative cooking, and making all sorts of foods from scratch, including other very time consuming cold cereal recipes.  Usually titles such as “quick dinners” and “easy desserts” […]

Paul eats breakfast at 6:00 during the week.  And while I am very thankful that is later than it used to be, it is still early.  Early enough that I don’t want to be up an hour before making a big breakfast.  We love grits, […]
