How to Cook Your Thanksgiving Turkey

Jane Snow gave some great tips on cooking the bird for Thanksgiving.  In case you are not familiar with Jane, she was the former food editor of the Akron Beacon Journal, and is still one of the most respected “foodies” in the area.  You can go to and sign up to get her weekly […]

Sauerkraut, Blackeyed Peas, Mashed Potatoes

It doesn’t get much better than this.  I was born in Texas, so we don’t have sauerkraut without blackeyed peas and mashed potatoes.  The Butcher has been wanting sauerkraut so this past week I dutifully made him a healthy sized batch.  This ought to hold him until New Year’s Eve. Sauerkraut, Sherman Provision Style 3 pounds […]

Turkey Wraps

We need a light meal after a special church service tonight.  Don Bickley, one of our faithful customers, provided a real winner.  I have to confess, I have never cooked ground turkey before.  It smells delicious and I can’t wait to try it.  Without further ado, here is this Simply Delicious recipe.

Stuffed Pepper Soup (Among Other Things)

I told you I would let you know what I did with the leftovers.  I did not want to leave you in suspense.  Also, on a night like this, you may not have anything better to do than read my blog so I thought I would blog while I had a captive audience.  The Butcher and […]

Peppers, Peppers Everywhere!

Last week when we were having such beautiful, sunny weather, (why does this seem like a fairy tale when I am looking out my window, seeing the rain, and hearing the wind howling?) the Butcher and I were heading home after work to rake the leaves.  I knew I had to make him a good […]

Chicken Paprikash

Once again, I am counting on a wonderful customer to share her recipe for Chicken Paprikash with Spatzle.  Dale Kercheff brought the recipe to me, and I honestly thought I would prepare it before I blogged about it.  Instead, the Butcher and I went to RoseHill Restaurant, 7249 Wooster Pike Rd., Seville, Ohio  44273 (330.721.2111).  The butcher ordered Chicken […]

Danny is my inspiration

Tonight’s blog was inspired by Danny (  I always love to read Danny’s blogs.  His recipes are amazing.  He always cooks with items he has on hand.  He was recently mentioned on Dr. Oz’s show.  Danny had made an incredible recipe.  He said he went to his refrigerator to see what was available, and he had […]

Elaine’s Li’l Cheddar Meat Loaves

Elaine is one of our dear customers.  She brought in 2 recipes to share with our customers.  Elaine not only brought in the recipes, she made numerous copies and put them in a sleeve so our customers could take a copy home with them.  That is definately going beyond the call of duty.  This is […]
