Look for things to savor in life

Up and Running

Pictured above is my freezer up and running and ready to go.  It was the simplest fix that I didn’t dream was possible, but am ever so thankful for.  Just a couple of wires that had mingled and melted together.  Thanks to our incredibly talented maintenance guy (Ruby says he is magical),  he found the…

kitchen gadgets

In my opinion they too often get in the way, collect dust, get shoved to the back of the drawer or cabinet. I usually don’t purchase them, but THIS ONE is a lifer…”will be in my kitchen for life”.  And guess what…it currently has been plopped down permanently in a cute little dish on my counter…

Grilled Pumpkin Soup

This next week we will be grilling a fall favorite…PUMPKINS.  From what I have researched the pumpkin pictured above is known as a Red Kuri Pumpkin/Squash…if you know any different, please let me know.  I discovered this pumpkin last year, fall 2013.  It’s beautiful deep orange color and unique shape made it hard for me…

Debo's Smokehouse Chili

Chilis

No, not the restaurant…although I could go there just for chips and salsa.  There’s just something about those freshly fried thin crisp tortilla chips and Chili’s delicate salsa.  ‘Tis the Season for some chili though.  I’ve been busy cooking up a couple of batches of chili this week.  My Smokehouse Chili and my Robust Vegan…

Out with the old, In with the new

Well it goes something like that.  It’s that time of year when most are looking forward to cooler weather, colors on the trees, visits to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard.  My daughter Ruby said this morning (she’s 9), “Mommy isn’t it funny how in the winter we enjoy it, but then we’re so ready…

Fresh ‘n Hot

It’s fresh. It’s hot, at least we think it is.  Our website is renewed.  There may be a few mistakes here or there that we didn’t find. There may be something that you don’t like about it. We would like for you to test the waters for us. Let us know what you think. Maybe…

Cruciferous Challenge

Don’t let the word cruciferous turn you away.  It’s simply a category of vegetables related to cabbage.  My favorite saying, “don’t knock it til you try it”.  Cruciferous broken down, simply has to do with the Latin word meaning CROSS.  For if you look at a growing cabbage plant, it’s four leaves join in resemblance…

A Lost Art

When you think of a “lost art” what comes to mind?  In this setting I’m referring to the culinary arts.  As of lately I have been asked, by a company, to set my best foot/hand forward and create some scrumptious good ole southern recipes/dishes.  Nothing gourmet at all, just good ole southern home cooking.  When…

The Queen of Greens

I am often asked, “what is kale?”.  If you’re not sure what it is, the only example I can think of to describe it to you is…do you remember going to Shoney’s or a steakhouse when you were a kid?  They would garnish almost every plate with it.  Kale was the curly green stuff to…

The Essence of Tableness

A table makes a room more inviting.  Imagine a dining room filled with chairs and no table…it seems empty.  You expect a table should be there.  Imagine a living room with a couch and a couple of sitting chairs and no end table and no coffee table.  Sure there are homes where the living room…
