Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Welcome visitors from the Ultimate Blog Party 2010!

As a Girl Raised In The South, and a working-outside-the-home mom for most of my married life, "quickandeasy" was always the first part of any recipe that found a home in my recipe stash. And while I now have a bit more discretionary time, I still don't want to spend all day in the kitchen, so many of the recipes here still have those same quick and easy qualities.

My posts here range from Southern Staples like:

Buttermilk Biscuits


My very first "scratch" pie crust

Not-Your-Granny's Banana Pudding

Two kinds of Blackberry Pie

and of course that Southern beverage staple, Sweet Tea newer fare like:

Make-Your-Own Seasoned Snack Crackers

Stovetop Barbeque Chicken

Cranberry Relish

Make Your Own Roux the easy way--in the oven

Quick and Easy Chicken Alfredo Pizza

And one of my favorite holiday beverages, Egg-less Egg Nog

So pull up a chair and browse, I hope you find something you like!

Until next time, good cooking, and good eating!
