The Best Quiche Ever

I’ve hosted and participated in many bridal showers, baby showers, and brunches. If there’s ever a request or need for a quiche – or any egg dish for that matter – I bring out the big guns.

Muscadine Grapes

A taste of home from long ago … sweet and special. Not so easily available anymore. The distance is far not only in memory but in miles. We all have memories of eating something that causes us to pause and remember. So often they are of a dish made by a long gone grandmother or … Continue reading »

A Washi Parfait

Make your own yogurt parfait to go. But first: I have a confession, I have not been a fan of neither smoothies nor yogurt parfaits … I know! Crazy!
