    Roll up your sleeves for bread

    I remember a time, when my boys were little, when we sat down to snack on some of my homemade bread, fresh from the oven. It wasn’t just one time, as I made bread every week back then. But this one time, we enjoyed it with homemade butter and homemade wild elderberry jelly. What an exquisite...

    Hearty fall soups

    Fall is my favorite time of the year, but winter has its fine points too. When rain and cold weather comes knocking, I start feeling really cozy when I think about making a pot of hearty homemade soup. It’s comfort food, but can also be a welcome addition to any dinner party, as there are...

    How to feed hungry Super Bowl fans

    It’s never too early to plan for a Super Bowl get together. This year it will be held on Feb. 7, which will be here before you know it (just like Christmas was). Guests get mighty hungry as they cheer their favorite team on or jump up and shake their fists at “the other guys,”...

    Shrimp are big on flavor

    The morning I wrote this column, I noticed a television show about catching shrimp. I used to live in the “Deep South” for four years and had a cast net, which provided many a tasty, fresh-caught shrimp dinner. I still have a fondness for shrimp and I like to prepare those delicacies...

    Mash it up at meal time

    Mashed potatoes have been a comfort food for many of us, and I especially like them if made from fresh potatoes rather than instant ones. Add some real butter and homemade gravy and I could call it a meal.

    Sweet and sugary

    Now that it’s mid-December, I find myself fighting off the panic that comes with the realization that the sands are falling in the hourglass as far as time for holiday baking goes. I also got to thinking about some of my favorite treats, which are sugar cookies.

    It’s prime time for prime rib

    It’s been five years since we talked about prime rib here, so I thought it would be nice to bring it up again. Interestingly, the proper name for the meat is “standing rib eye roast.” Whatever you choose to call it, your guests’ mouths will be watering as you carve juicy...

    The final touch

    Dessert comes sooner or later during holiday meals, and even though everyone has eaten their fill, there always seems to be room for that dessert. Many people want to keep things traditional, with pies made of pumpkin, apple or sometimes even mincemeat (increasingly rare these days). Here is a collection...

    Pass the sweet potatoes, please

    I was always asked to bring candied yams to the Thanksgiving table, but I must admit if someone was only interested in eating healthful fare, they would have snubbed my candied yams. They were so candied they were almost translucent and the sauce was sticky, caramelized sugar, maple syrup, a bit...
