DIY Snow Cone Syrups

About a year ago (almost exactly, actually), we bought a snow cone maker. Along with it, we bought a couple bottles of snow cone syrup. It has taken a whole year, but we have finally run out of syrups. Michelle said, “I bet we can make some…”

It’s Barbecue Time!

If we are going to move forward with talking about barbecue, we need to straighten something out. Barbecue is not a cookout or a party. Those are called… well, cookouts and parties. Barbecue is not cooking device. Those are called grills and smokers. Barbecue is a method of cooking and the food that results from that cooking technique.

Coconut Whipped Cream

I always think it’s funny when people see an ad for a drink at a coffee shop, I don’t know, let’s call it Barstucks, and saw how amazing it looks when in reality all they can see is whipped cream with a sprinkle of something. 

Dairy-Free Mocha Waffles

Yes, you can make good waffles without egg or dairy. And you don’t even need fake eggs or some weird dairy-free wheat milk or something. Flour, sugar, water, oil, baking powder, a dash of vanilla and salt, and you’ve got the makings of a surprisingly decent waffle. 

Southern Fried Pickles

I don’t know what it is about them, but the salty tang of the pickle combined with the golden fried crust is just one of the best things ever.

M.I.A.

So, I’m coming up on the 1 year birthday of this blog, but I haven’t posted in three weeks! I’m sorry for the absence, but we have been dealing with sickness, family stuff, and other things that have taken my attention away from posting. I hope to get back in the kitchen and posting soon,…

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a classic chocolate chip cookie that will bring back all the wonderful memories of childhood while still being free of dairy and eggs!

Dad’s Meatloaf

In this bleak season when the skies are the color of granite and the cold unrelentingly grips your toes, I feel the need for good comfort food. And in my mind, there are few better comfort foods than meatloaf.

Holly Cookies

When I was a kid, the best part of going to Grandma’s house for the holidays was the snacks. Grandpa’s study would be converted in a mini-buffet, full of crackers with various cheeseballs, snack mixes, dill-ranch snack crackers (a personal favorite), hot cider, and a wide variety of cookies enough to make Santa stick around for a while.
