Baking Bread.

February 4, 2012

There are some things in this world that give me comfort no matter where I am in my life.  I know that sometimes I seem like a “motherly cliche” with all my domestic endeavors and besides the fact that I am too much of a feminist to actually survive this era, I would be perfect […]

Recipe Thursday: Chicken and Rice

September 29, 2011

In the summer of 2004, I stayed with my aunt Alma. She’s actually my great aunt, because she is my grandfather’s sister, but she is more like a mom to me. (Confusing enough?) I also look a lot like her and I don’t look at all like my mom and dad. (This picture is several […]

Recipe Thursday – BBQ Pork and Polly’s Potato Salad.

April 14, 2011

This recipe should be called “no-brainer BBQ pork.” Seriously. It’s that easy and that good. I made this for the first time a week or so ago. We are under a severe burn ban for the entire state of Oklahoma and we don’t feel good about using our charcoal grill. The Mister is a barbequeaholic. (It’s […]

Okay, something else I am going to do on this little ‘ol blog — Recipe Thursdays! I love to cook. Well, actually, I love to bake.  I cook cause I have to. When I’m in a kitchen with actual counter space, I cook a lot. Mainly southern comfort foods… my grandma taught me how to […]
