    Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Just Like Mama Used To Make

    It’s a very chilly morning here,  which means it’s a great day for Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup! When I was a little girl, my Mama would make all kinds of homemade soups but my favorite was always her homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. This is basically her recipe, however, it never seems to come out tasting the same.

(Inhale the steam from the bowl of soup, it will help clear your head. That’s another little trick…

    Sour Cream Coffee Cake

    There are some foods that remind us of our childhood, this Sour Cream Coffee Cake is one of those foods. My Mama used to make this every month or so. When I would come home from school and inhale that beautiful smell, I knew we must be having company over or we were celebrating something.

Well y’all, I’m here to show you…

    Rockin Red Beans and Rice

    Red beans and rice, originated in Louisiana and in the old South, was typically made on Monday’s. This is because on Sunday there was usually a big supper after church and it usually included ham or beef which gave left over bones and a bit of meat. Monday was typically wash day. Of course, back then they didn’t have washing machines so washing clothes took a great deal of time between using a washboard and tub, then ringing the clothes and finally hanging them. Supper needed to be something that didn’t take a great deal of attention, hence, Red Beans & Rice! I know these days we don’t have to…
