Cotham’s Mercantile – An Arkansas Adventure

While on my recent “Retirement Grand Tour” with my sister, Judy, we were so very fortunate to be able to visit with my niece (Judy’s daughter), Jen, and her family in Little Rock, Arkansas. Among the many activities we were able to share was checking out various local...

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween and a Happy Fall to all! I love this photo from Halloween 2013 showing my amazing grandson with the treats we just created together. The “monster” treat was a super simple idea, delicious and fun to make. Here’s how to create your own: (1) Bake...

The Story of Our Cover

As Jennifer and I experienced all of the highs and lows of being first time authors we shared many heartwarming moments and sessions of uncontrolled laughter. A favorite memory was our quest for the perfect cover photo. Our cover had to promise the reader delicious...

Saguaros in Bloom: Southwestern Meal – Sample Chapter

While we hope that all our blog followers, friends and EVERYONE will buy our book…we also understand that some of you might want a peek inside before purchasing online.  It is definitely much easier to evaluate the quality, appeal and content of a book when you...

Glowing Review

Thank you for the delightful cookbook!  I am throughly enjoying it. The stories, the pictures, and the recipes are so fun.  I love to cook and find myself distracted at work with your book at my desk:). The pictures remind me of my childhood and the stories of my...

Save In The Kitchen – Use Drip-It

Here is a handy little gadget that I frequently use in my kitchen.  It will save you money, time, and energy. Use it when you don’t want to waste what is left in a bottle but it is too exasperating to try to coax it out and into another container. Worse yet, is trying...

Big Breakfast – Burritos

Growing up and still today we like to have “Big Breakfast” on one morning of the weekend. How we started calling it this I am not sure…other than it is the easy reference to the very thing it describes…a breakfast where we cook and it ends up being on the larger side...

Farewell to Basil – Lemon Basil Martinis

Fall is trying to sneak into the south. Summer is fighting to keep hold, but a few nights I have felt Fall gaining a slight lead. For those of us who live in this part of the country we “enjoy” about 6 months of warm to sweltering, summer-like temperatures, so Fall is...

Garden Abundance Pesto

Every February I start getting antsy to put in my herb garden. Now, for most people, February may seem like a strange time of year to think of gardening. I, however, live in sunny southern Arizona and February is the most perfect time to get your gardening on,...

Tomato and Sunshine Salad

As you know from a previous post, I really love to grow things that I can use in meals for my hubby and I. This year we had two bumper crops: cherry tomatoes and basil. Fortunately, tomatoes and basil is a match made in culinary heaven. We have been eating tons and...

Clinging to Summer – Strawberry Vinaigrette

A common mantra of the parents of school-aged kids around this time of year is “Where did the summer go?” While school starting does signal the end of vacation days for the kids, what is “summertime” really? Is it simply when schools are out between Spring and Fall...

Man vs. Barbeque

My precious husband loves to grill. Present him with a piece of anything that once mooed, clucked, oinked, honked, or bit a hook and he is willing to have a go at it. The only problem is that while he does not lack in enthusiasm he does sometimes fall short with...
