Olive Dip

Dip, Dip Hooray!   If there was ever a season for dips, it’s happening now. With holiday parties in full swing, you can count on a bowl with surrounding chips, crackers and raw vegetables. The beauty of these dunkable appetizers is that they come together quickly and have mass appeal. But instead of the same…

Sweet Potato Pie

Everyone’s Favorite Sweet Potato Pie Perhaps you routinely reach for pecan or chocolate pie for something to end a meal. Both are great, but I prefer a not-so-sugary but equally satisfying slice of sweet potato pie. Produce bins are loaded with supplies of this freshly harvested tuber and you more than likely have a stash…

Wine Stoppers

Wine Stoppers Walk around any gift shop and you’ll find a mountain of cute wine stoppers that are quite frankly useless. They look nice in the bottle, but do little to seal the bottle. And if you need to lay the bottle on its side in the refrigerator, look for a mess. That’s why I…

Colonel E. H. Taylor Single Barrel

When Autumn rolls around, and the temps cool down, I find myself thinking about bourbon when I want an adult beverage. Actually, I’m prone to have a sip of bourbon any time of year, but it’s especially enjoyable during the cooler seasons. About a year or so ago, a buddy suggested I try Colonel Taylor…

White Fruitcake

White Fruitcake Before you turn away with the thought of “I don’t like fruitcake” try to keep an open mind. Push those store bought, hard as rocks versions away. Instead, imagine dried, candied fruit that has been soaked in orange liqueur, then regularly brushed with it after baking to keep the texture nice and moist….

Garlic

Who can cook without garlic? I certainly can’t and now is the time to plant your own so you’ll have a plentiful supply next year. I have a raised bed, which makes the soil drain nicely. I selected an area that receives all day sun which is very important. Garlic can take a little shade,…
