Last month when I taught my class how to make my favorite buttermilk biscuits, I told them one of the secrets to light, fluffy, high rising biscuits is to use really good buttermilk.  If all you have access to is the grocery store offerings, go ahead and buy it.  But,...

There are breakfast people and non breakfast people and I camp out with the first group!  I have to eat breakfast, within a few hours of my feet hitting the floor.  I love a bowl of yogurt and fruit, with granola sprinkled on top, or a steaming bowl of oatmeal in the w...

Why is this my favorite pound cake, you might ask?  Because it works.  Every single time.  This is important to me, because up to a few years ago, my pound cakes were hit or miss. Sometimes they turned out well, but there were other times when they had a "sad streak" t...

There are those days when a peanut butter cookie, with a glass of milk, sounds just about perfect.  I especially love these, because they are soft and chewy, which is how I like my cookies!

This recipe is a winner, as it comes together quickly and there's no n...

 I'm rushing to get one more pumpkin recipe up on the blog before March, because we all know that pumpkin dishes are for fall and winter and even though we've been known to have a blizzard in March, in my mind, March means spring in the south!  I had planned to make th...

You are going to love this bread recipe.  It's the easiest thing in the world to make.  Really.  It's easy!   And it's bowl to oven ready in less than two hours, which means you can whip it up after lunch and have it hot from the oven for dinner.  I love the small boul...

 Pasta in a creamy broth, with chunks of chicken and wilted spinach.  What do you think?  Sounds pretty decadent, huh?   Now imagine that this can be made in about fifteen minutes of real hands on time, while slowly cooking away in your crock pot for most of the day....

It matters little what else I bake at Christmas, as long as we have these cookies.  Each year I ask my family, if they could only pick a couple of favorites, what would they be?  Sugar cookies and poppy seed bread always top the list.  Now there are other things we enj...

I love to make these muffins during the holidays because of the combination of winter fruits and the way they make my house smell when I'm baking them.  Sweet orange and tangy cranberries belong together.  I'm often reminding you of the benefits of eating seasonally, f...
