Tis the season-blueberry season that is and I understand that the bushes are very tall and very full. Boy do I miss those days going with the little grandkids.  We would hop on the haywagon with a group of parents and little kids.  There would be a great deal of laughing and singing.  On the way back after a few hours in the field the kids all looked like little blue Martians covered with blueberry juice.

I shared this Blueberry Yogurt many years ago in my newspaper colum...

Well I really don't know what to name this recipe as I found it in my files written on the back of an envelope and all it said was " IT MAKES A LOT OF COOKIES" and it does, about 12 dozen.

Actually this is a basic recipe-you mix up the batter and separate it in a few bowl and mix in different add-ins.

1 pound butter or margarine-you can use 1/2 butter and 1/2 Smart Balan...

Time Sure Does Fly (Thanksgiving)

Continueing to heed the advise to serve squash when  you are under stress and what can be more stressful than cooking and serving a holiday  dinner to a group (family) with different personalities and ideas.

I was reminded of that type of a situation while watching one of my favorite programs "The Middle."

I love to serve my pumpkin trifle for Thanksgiving.  Not only is it easy, but you can prepare it the day before.  The trifle is so delicious and sure is a sh...

There are so many wonderful recipes in  my file using strawberries and it was very difficult trying to select some of my favorites because I love them all. What is there not to love-they are all so easy, so delicious and most of all very healthy.

Although my outdoor grill has  not been readied for summer cooking as yet-I am a little leery of attempting the job because I have a large stainless steel unit that is hooked to my gasline in my house, so I am giving a SHOUT OUT for some help.  I just love experimenting with all kinds of food cooked on the grill.  I am  not going to go into detail, because I plan  to share some of the recipes this summer. Yes, I plan  to adhere to my regular schedu...

I really could use at least three more days in the week and maybe make some new friends.  Only kidding, because I have the greatest friends.

Monday I decided to play my version of the Food Networks program called CHOPPED.  I just love that...
