Wendy’s Spaghetti Sauce… finally on “paper!”

“The BEST spaghetti sauce!” That’s what my family and friends call this… make several gallons at the time to eat anytime! Great to “gift” and especially appreciated “funeral food” when grieving folks have been giving away all the boxes of fried chicken dropped off! Maybe I should rename it to Funeral Spaghetti! Just make some…

A southern girl’s PC… Creamy Swiss Pimento Cheese

We all have our personal favorite pimento cheese. I invite you to try mine… with nutty Swiss cheese and the creaminess of whipped cream cheese. I also use North Carolina’s Mt. Olive Pickles Roasted Red Peppers, to keep it local y’all. But if you’re not lucky to have where you live, just substitute!

Peach on The Beach Atlantic Beach Pie

Peach on the Atlantic Beach Pie!

In recent years, a revival of the vintage Atlantic Beach Pie has occurred. I created my version of the recipe by using a combination of citrus juices (not just one), a little zest, and snuck in a surprise layer of NC peaches. Enjoy!
