Maple Butter Yummmmm!

This recipe is Oh, So Simple and Oh, Sooooo Good!!!  And this stuff is great on just about anything. Spread it on waffles, pancakes, toast, muffins, or homemade doughnuts!  So, do yourself a favor and try it… You won’t be sorry.   😉   On my recipe card this is called Hard Sauce. I’m not certain […]

Easy-to-Make Southern Biscuits and British Scones

Biscuits and Scones can be served at any time during the day: breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea time, dinner, supper, and late-night snacking. Wow, they’re the perfect Hobbit food! These unassuming breads are great all by themselves or with butter and jam or honey, (for the purists) or can be stuffed with a fried egg and/or […]

Suger, Spice, and Apple Pies are Nice!

Considering the amount of last-minute shoppers in the grocery stores, and yes, I was one of them – picking up a few things I had forgotten earlier in the week – I thought I would repost these yummy apple recipes.  And I usually don’t bake my pies until the night before, or early in the […]

It’s Peach Season!

Mead Anyone?

Since our week of false spring, with highs in the 70s, is over and winter has returned to the Carolinas for the MLK holiday weekend, and with another shot of cold air due on Tuesday (with highs in the low 40s), I thought this would be a fun post. In keeping with the recipes posted […]

Oxymoron – Health Bread

Strange title, huh…  Well, I really couldn’t help myself, because sometimes life is so strange! While we were sitting at the Where Writers Win table this past weekend at the SC Writers conference, the topic of oxymorons came up. (Guess we had too much time on our hands while the workshops were in session.) LOL!  […]

Seahawk’s Sanctuary Recipes: Mama Lil’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese

I know, I know, if the vast varieties that line the supermarket shelves and frozen food section are an indicator, everybody must love Macaroni and Cheese!  But what about a real old Southern style recipe of this beloved pasta dish?  It’s not as hard to make as you may think. Thomas Jefferson loved Macaroni and […]

Seahawk’s Sanctuary Recipes: Jacob’s Two-Cleaver Cornbread and more…

Since most cornbread recipes are basically pretty simple, especially the boxed ones, I thought that I would post some variations to liven-up the ordinary.  An essential item is an 8 or 9-inch cast iron skillet…seasoned, please.  If you do not have one of these, the holidays are coming and they can be purchased at Lodge […]

Seahawk’s Sanctuary Recipes: Silvy’s Peach Cobbler

I thought that it would be fun to post a few recipes that the characters in my novel baked, or wanted to make, as the case may be…  So I’m going to start with something sweet.  I believe we should start eating desserts first… I rarely have room for them afterwards! I hope you will […]
