    Oh so sweet and oh so smooth chocolate pudding

    Did you know that chocolate pudding is so popular there's a national day in honor of the tasty treat? It is celebrated every year on June 26, but of course we can enjoy it any time we want to. Lately I have been having a little fun looking up national food days. We can make our own pudding from ...

    The sloppier the better when it comes to Sloppy Joes

    I must admit that as I get older, there are certain things about camping that aren't as easy or appealing as when I was much younger. A trailer or camper beats a tent now, as one example, even though that sometimes limits camp site access, depending on where you like to camp. But one thing is for...

    Chocolate chips hit the mark any time of year

    No matter what time of year, and whether or not there is a special occasion, one thing is for sure: most people love chocolate chips! I prefer the milk chocolate or white chocolate ones, but semi-sweet chips have their usefulness too. I wouldn't turn any away. If you love chocolate chips, I hope...

    Ah-h-h-h ... the sweet aroma of breads

    I had every intention of doing some bread baking for the Easter holiday, but ended up traveling and did not have the time. Then I got to thinking 'uh-oh, sometimes that means trouble.' But just because Easter has come and gone, it doesn't mean I am banned from baking some special treats. While it...

    Adding a little Irish flavor to St. Patrick's Day

    I got to thinking about a phrase I often heard but didn't understand. Have you ever used, or heard, the term faith and begorrah? There are various spellings for begorrah. From what I have learned, the first part, faith, was used to precede some strong assertion and would have translated as something...

    A bountiful of oranges

    There aren't that many things I like about the winter months, but a bounty of fresh, delicious oranges is one of them. My mom has an orange tree, and early in the season, I'm always checking to see if the fruits are ready yet.

    A day filled with hearts, cakes, sweets and lotsa love

    I take great risk in admitting that Valentine's Day is my least favorite holiday. Actually, I should refer to it as a celebration or observance rather than an official holiday. I guess as a kid, it was kind of fun to shop for (or make) valentine cards for classmates, as I enjoyed any type of art...

    A vote for extending National Pie Day through 2014

    January 23 was National Pie Day. I vote for extending the celebration throughout the entire year. Pies of all kinds are very popular, whether they be sweet or savory, such as a shepherd pie or a chicken, beef or turkey pot pie. Much of the work of pie making has been taken care of for those who...

    Hearty robust roasts make for scrumptious winter fare

    There are so many kinds of roasts to choose from, if you are planning to serve one for a winter evening dinner. Turkey breast roasts, pork loin roasts, all sorts of beef roasts or even a rack of lamb and for some people, roasts made from wild game. I like them all, but especially a rare prime rIib...
