My Recipes I Brianna Wray

All sorts of stories aim to explain how this dessert got its name, but we have not come to any consensus (according to Wikipedia, anyway). I’ve heard the pastries were invented by a shoemaker’s...

 

My Recipes, Luke Chavez

While the country I love feels painfully divided, I have been focusing on what unites us, and to my mind, food has always been the great unifier. Our nation's rich diversity makes it hard to define a...

Teeny McMunn: My Recipe Box

I thought I’d do something different this week. I started a post in my home town about old sayings. We have about 650 responses, some sayings inviting conversation. Perhaps it’s a generation thing, but many I still say. I have copied and pasted... Full story

 

Teeny McMunn: My Recipe Box

A recipe from England This recipe is shared by Susan Jensen. In our delightful conversation, it turned to recipes. I asked her if she had any to share. She shared several, which will be fun to try....

 

Teeny McMunn: My Recipe Box

If this sounds familiar, it is. I used this recipe last year (and the year before) about this time. It’s worth repeating. I used to make this after Thanksgiving when I had a family and trying to stretch all the leftovers I could. It’s very good...

Mexican Chicken Soup

This came into my email so I thought I’d share. I didn’t make it. I’m not a big fan of Mexican food. I am trying not to put in only those recipes that appeal to me, which is why not many with sour cream or cream cheese get into the paper. And...

 

Teeny McMunn: My Recipe Box

These were sent to me by Bill Rodgers. The same guy who gifts us with great photography and shares his abundance of unique irises. Bill had brought over a salad for us who stay late on Tuesdays to get...

 

Apple Puff Pancake
