Learn how to enjoy food, cooking & entertaining. It’s not about fancy or complicated. It’s about good food. Real food. Everything in moderation. Most of the recipes are original along with the best recipes I have found from various sources.

There is nothing like a fresh brewed cup of quality coffee. There is nothing like a smooth glass of red wine. And yes…… you can eat potatoes. Potatoes are real food.

“Meals will never be good quality if the ingredients are not good quality.” 

I love this time of year, pretty snowy days. Cozy inside with soup and pets, no yard work. It’s the time to make homemade soup and bake. Florida citrus is perfect and goes well with warm popovers right out of the oven. Enjoy the cold weather recipes below.
