I'm MOVING (my blog, that is) - at least for the time being. I don't know if it's my computer (one of the two), or AR, or just that I'm not holding my tongue right. But I'm having fits trying to get my photos, links, everything else to post correctly here. So please click on through to my new… MORE

I have a confession to make. Until just a few years ago, everything I knew about Italian sausage came from pizza. Like most people, I'd had it on pizza - along with lots of other things (Redeye will order a Meat Lover/Carnivore/Man's Man pizza every time if I let him) and I'd used it in one… MORE

Anyone who knows me well has probably heard me say, when referring to any meal, "If there's no meat, it's a salad." Let me clarify that just a bit. First of all, I really only say that about Dinner... and probably Lunch. Breakfast doesn't count. Secondly, I actually LIKE a salad - on the side… MORE

Isn’t it always funny when you get to thinking, “What in the world did we ever do before _________?” The list of words that can be filled in here is no doubt endless – and different for each individual. Think about it – cable TV... cell phones... dishwashers...… MORE

Well, first things first. We didn't have butter growing up. We had margarine. Sticks & tubs. Now to be honest, I didn't know there was a difference back then and I was perfectly fine with it. We'd fight over who got the "hat" (the little swirly part) in a new tub for our cornbread. It was… MORE

About Me
I'm not so much a person who loves to Cook, as a person who loves to EAT!!! I'm "born & raised" in Mississippi, though I've lived other places and am thrilled to be back. Married to a good ol' country boy - Jim, aka "Redeye" - who's reluctantly become a good daddy to my sweet kitty, Tallulah Belle.
My favorite things to cook
Gosh, there are lots..... Gumbo (Yum!)or anything Cajun/Creole, pasta, grilling. I don't really bake, but that's because I don't have much of a sweettooth. Bring on the potatoes & gravy, please!!
My cooking triumphs
I'm most proud of our two-year run at the Ducks Unlimited duck gumbo-cookoff here in Jackson, MS. We won people's choice each year and had a ball doing it!
My cooking tragedies
Well, there have been several.... but the worst? The absolute WORST? That would have to be the first time I tried Chicken 'n Dumplings. I was in college & had my grandmother (Nanny) on the phone giving me her instructions, and well, you know how "they" are - "a little of this, not too much of that" - that's about the best you get as far as measurements go....... SO, first she forgot to mention I needed to use PLAIN flour (not self-rising), and she said to mix in shortening..... That's about the time they had just started making butter-flavored Crisco. And of course, I thought, well heck..... If regular's good, wouldn't butter-flavored be Better?..... Suffice it to say I ended up with a big pot of almost Neon-Yellow MUSH!!!! Seriously frightening stuff!!! I was horrified and my boyfriend & roommates were none too impressed. I guess that's why Domino's does such a good business. Oh well, lesson learned. BTW - my great-aunt later taught me how SHE made dumplings! Now I'm an expert, lol.
