Sweet Potato Fries
I made sweet potato fries in the oven yesterday, and I snacked on them while watching an episode of “Forensic Files” on HLN as my boys watched football in the living room. And while we’re on the subject of forensics, how and why anyone ever believes they are going to get away with any crime just ...
Cheesy Cauliflower Soup
Yesterday I made a cheesy version of my mom’s cauliflower soup because the weather outside, while still beautiful, has been just barely chilly enough to trigger the I NEED SOUP NOW mechanism in my central nervous system, and a creamy, comforting soup just sounded good to me. It’s simple, flavorful,
This is a very old, very easy biscuit recipe for those times you don’t have a second to waste. They’re sometimes called Southern Biscuits, sometimes called Southern Buttermilk Biscuits, sometimes called 3-Ingredient Biscuits (even though, if you add salt, there are four!)…but I know them as ...

Whenever my husband, the strapping stallion I call Marlboro Man, imagines chocolate pie—and I imagine that he imagines it frequently, because it’s one of his favorite desserts—he doesn’t think of French Silk Pie or Chocolate Chiffon Pie or Chocolate Chess Pie or any other variation. He thinks of ...
Beautiful Roasted Vegetables
I was in the big city last week, and I decided about an hour into my errands that I was hungry. So I stopped at a lovely grocery store that’s been in Tulsa forever, because they have a little section of to-go foods that I love, and I can usually find something delicious that isn’t a burger. I love
Guess what? I have something to tell you! It’s very important. Are you ready? Here goes. Today is National Coffee Day! No really. It is. And while we’re on the subject, what entity decides official days in our world? National Pancake Day, National Meatball Day, National Spam Day…who determines ...
Orange Crush Cake
It’s the simple things in life, I tell ya. I made this cake last week on a whim. It’s pretty much the same cake recipe as this Perfect Pound Cake recipe, which is the same basic cake recipe as this Lemon-Lime Pound Cake recipe, but instead of using lemon-lime pop like Sprite or 7-Up as the other ...
Black Bean Burger
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday, and I’d say as marriages go, ours is pretty darn good. We have four kids, work pretty hard, and spend most of our time together, which is just fine with us since we really like each other and all that. Now, I will confess that there has
My Favorite Chicken Recipes
Happy Friday, friends! Today, in true round-up form, I wanted to share a handful of my very favorite chicken dishes! Hope you find a few that make your skirt fly up. Unless you don’t wear skirts. And then…well, use your imagination. Chicken Spaghetti. What can I say? It’s one of the most luscious
