Welcome!

Thank you for visiting our blog!  We look forward to sharing our recipes with you!  Our plan is to share a variety of recipes with you.  Luke and I both love to cook and I also love to bake which works out great for Luke and his sweet tooth! ;)

Even though we're both from the South, Luke and I were exposed to very different foods when we were growing up.  He grew up eating traditional Southern foods but I didn't.  One of my grandmothers is British so she didn't cook traditional Southern food and my other grandmother is from the Ohio/Kentucky area so she doesn't cook traditional Southern food either. 

Luke grew up eating country fried steak, cornbread dressing (or dressin') with giblet gravy, and candied yams.  I had never eaten any of those foods before Luke came into my life.  I have to say I hated the country fried steak and the giblet gravy grossed me out a little, but I love, I mean LOVE the candied yams!!!

About a year and a half ago, I decided to change my eating habits.  I decided I no longer wanted to eat meat.  I told Luke I'd eventually eat fish again but I wanted to go without any meat for about a year.  As promised, I started eating fish again a few months ago, but I only eat fish or shellfish once a week (usually on Sundays).  Luke and I cook together every Sunday evening.  We turn on some music, have a drink and enjoy each other's company while we cook.  I look forward to this time every week.  Life gets so busy during the week that we don't have a lot of time to just enjoy each other.  For all you couples out there, I highly recommend you take the time to cook with each other and just have fun!!

For now, I'll leave you with a quick and yummy treat for you to try.  They're called Snowballs.  I wish I could claim this particular recipe but it's one I learned from my mom.  She's been making these for as long as I can remember, and they couldn't be easier to make!

All you need is a 1 lb. package of Almond Bark, creamy peanut butter, Rice Krispies and mini marshmallows.

First you melt the Almond Bark in a microwave safe bowl for about 2 minutes (check on it after a minute and stir).  Once it's melted, stir in 3 tablespoons of peanut butter.  Then pour 3 cups of Rice Krispies and 3 cups of mini marshmallows into the mixture. 

 
 

Once it's all incorporated, dollop about 2 tablespoons per snowball onto wax paper.

Once the snowballs are set, they're ready to eat!


I hope you enjoy!!! :)
