Cheeseburger Pie

Cheeseburger Pie

I remember growing up and wanting to get my cheeseburgers from a fast food joint. If you grew up in a home like mine, fast food burgers came far and in between. If we had groceries at home, there was absolutely no reason the go by food from somewhere else. Either you ate what was...

Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

There is nothing like a sweet potato pie! While some may favor pumpkin pie, hands down sweet potato pie wins over pumpkin pie in VINCENT COUNTRY. My family might send me to the woodshed if I even attempted to utter the words pumpkin pie. There is something very comforting and reminiscent of down south that...

Peach Cobbler for the Vegan in All of Us!

Peach Cobbler for the Vegan in All of Us!

For people who subscribe to being carnivorous in nature (ME 😃) the term vegan causes our ears to perk up. Not because we are curious to try the food, but because it does not translate into food we will enjoy. That is a result of the misconception that vegan eating is a “diet”.  The bad...

Curry Shrimp Pasta Salad

Curry Shrimp Pasta Salad

It is summertime, and with summer comes barbeques and a many variety of celebrations. I always enjoy the menu selection during this time of the year. There is nothing like charred meats on the grill, but no summer celebration is complete without the sides to accompany the barbeque. There are staples, such as, potato salad, macaroni salad, coleslaw, and a faithful toss salad. All good in a nostalgic kind of way. I like to mix it up, some staples with some surprises. This year I added my “Curry Shrimp Pasta Salad” to the repertoire. It is a sure crowd pleaser and may just...

Nana Edie

If you grew in a kitchen similar my Nana Edie’s, you know there are no recipes! You watch and observe. In my case, I could not just sit on the sidelines. The attraction to cooking came early and runs in my DNA. I come from a long line of amazing chefs. Yes, I used the term chef, because that is exactly who they were. They cooked for the entire neighborhood on a daily basis. That sounds like a restaurant with customers to me! The difference is, it was a labor of love, and the compensation was watching...
