Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup II

It's soup season!  My first new soup of the fall came from a recipe by Ina Garten of the Food Network.  This summer when our Roma tomatoes were coming in by the dozens I didn't have time to do anything with them.  My sous-chef dish-washing mom was fighting breast cancer, we had a fair amount…

Spring Is In The Details

This is the cave spring that feeds the little creek that runs in front of our home.  The cave is located on our neighbor's property.  Lucky for us she doesn't mind us walking down her lane and across her front yard so that we can view this lovely spring.  During the winter everything surrounding the…

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

I haven't blogged since Easter except for a tribute to my son's birthday.  LIFE came at us fast the last 3 weeks.  Sweeping across the country is winter bronchitis and flu and we didn't dodge the bullet this year.  Sadness struck our neighborhood as we lost our good friend and neighbor, Kevin, to the ugliness…

LongHorn’s Garlic Parmesan Crusted Chicken

I absolutely adore LongHorn's Garlic Parmesan Crusted Chicken. I am quite certain it is not low-cal but I am just as certain it packed with so much flavor I can eat it often -- in moderation :) It was no surprise to my family when I went searching for a taste-alike recipe. Remember when I…
