Cheesy Barbecue Meatloaf

Mama’s Flying Solo Salad

Grandma’s Garlic Mashed Potatoes

So, I will confess that I have never been much of a mashed potato person.  I don’t think I’ve ever voluntarily ordered mashed potatoes at a restaurant and every year I pass over the mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving in lieu of, well, any other carbohydrate.  But when I received a request for a shepherd’s pie from […]

The Pie That Wanted to Be Baked

The Pie That Wanted to Be Baked

Tonight, while baking a pecan pie, I had a moment of clarity.  A sign emerged from my mixer bowl of sugary goodness.   I realized, at that moment, that things could – and, in fact, would – change if I were courageous enough to proceed boldly in the face of fear.  And I mean a […]
