Now that it’s getting cooler, my mind is turning to baking.  Even here on the island it got down into the sixties during the night, and the day is pleasant at 73F.  The first recipe is for apple bread and was given to me by Jerry Kackley, one of the ER unit secretaries.  Thank you, […]

Knox Blox

Monday, March 28th, 2011

  Knox Blox were a big thing when my kids were young.  You just know that picking up Jello with your fingers is fun.  I had two recipes – one that used the unflavored gelatin and fruit juice and one that used the unflavored gelatin with fruit flavored gelatin.  I usually made the latter because […]

Tasty Thanksgiving Temptations

Summer Salads

Memorial Day Cookouts

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

Memorial Day is coming up, and the weather is smiling at us.  Do you cook out on the grill or barbecue for the holiday?  When I lived up north, is was not uncommon for folks to talk about barbecuing when what they were doing had nothing to do with barbecue.  They were cooking out on […]
