Hot and Sour Soup soothes the soul…

This one will be short and sweet, or hot and sour, depending on how you look at it. *smiles* I’ve been sitting here the past few days coughing my head off, attempting to nurse myself back to health, and at my wits end with a Rudolph nose. A good friend suggested to me that I…

Sundays with Friends: Puttin’ on the Ritz with Shrimp Regatta

Today’s Sundays with Friends comes from my Mom’s friend, CJ.  She resided in New Orleans until Katrina hit, when they lost everything.  From what I hear, and my little bit of email correspondence with her, she is quite the strong, good-hearted woman.  I will let her tell you about the recipe below, but when someone…

Homemade Pimento Cheese

We grew pimentoes in our small garden this year.  What better southern classic to use them for other than Pimento Cheese????  Yes, you can get fancy with it, add olives, pecans, walnuts, grapes, etc…..But, I prefer the basic Pimento Cheese. I took a shortcut by buying finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese.  Then diced quite a few…
