Dolly Is Cooking Collard Greens

So many ways to cook collards and it seems as if my mother, grandmothers, mother in law all did them a little differently.  Tomorrow is the beginning of a new year, can you believe it?  Amazing how quickly a year passes by! There will be no surprises in our menu tomorrow it is a Southern Tradition to have certain things and there is a history behind why we have them.  Do you have your greens ready to cook?


I can hardly believe that a year has passed.  This year has held many good memories and some very sad memories.  One thing is for sure without the grace and blessings of our Lord there could have been many more sad memories.  Before we move on to a brand new and exciting year, I thought I'd look back on 2017 and the posts that were most visited.  I can say this you, my friends, like to Clean, DIY, and you really like Home Improvement!  Here are the Top Ten Posts of 2017 here at Hibiscus House.

Christmas 2017

I hope each and everyone has enjoyed a wondrous Christmas. I'll go ahead and wish you a Happy New Year!  That was just in case I don't get back on here to do so.  Sharing some of our Christmas with you.

Making Bows

I've lost count of how many spools of ribbon we have in storage.  Do you do that?  There is just something about new ribbon especially at Christmas time that draws me in.  Today Catie and I were in Sam's Club and this one had to come home with us.  You probably have made bows for many years. Just in case you haven't this is today's topic; Making Bows.

Grandpa and Chocolate Covered Cherries!

There are a few memories that stand out in our minds that never go away, thank goodness!  These are a few and I share them with you today.

To Hang or Not to Hang

Sometimes I just scratch my head and think about something for awhile.  It might take me quite some time before making up my mind about what to hang on a wall.  Why, oh why do I have this 'thing' about putting holes into a wall?  I find it especially hard to do this on freshly painted walls.  Today I talk about being simplistic.
