Do y’all remember those Sunday suppers at your grandmother’s when you were growing up? I do. All of my aunts, uncles and cousins packed into the house laughing or possibly squabbling. A table so full that we actually had to eat somewhere other than the dining room. Usually supper ended up becoming a musical chair […]

Lemon & Blackberry Cheesecake

August 3, 2010

Chocolate Mint Cheesecake

February 26, 2010

Lovely spring days are calling my name. I have daydreams of temperate, late evening, backyard parties, under shady old oak trees with the scent of jasmine perfuming the air. Spanish moss gently moving with the breeze, the laughter of children playing as they run around the yard. Colorful summer dresses, faded denim, breezy white shirts […]

Southern Key Lime for the Holidays

December 9, 2009

The holidays are in full swing. I absolutely love this time of year. The time of year when your house is filled with the wonderful and exotic aromas of chocolate, cinnamon,  allspice and nutmeg. Everyone lives in the kitchen snacking on goodies, Bing Crosby’s  “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” is playing in the back […]
