Southern Fried Squash


I remember my Grandma Cora cooking fried squash and sweet potatoes on her wood burning stove.  Wow, her food was delicious, but that kitchen was hot as heck on the hot summer days.
We don't have these often but sure do like them when we do.  This batter mixture can also be used for frying okra and fried green tomatoes as well.  Are you hungry yet?

Product Review: Renogy Outdoor Rechargeable Tactical Flashlight


Hello All!  Today I am doing a product review.  We'll be doing a little something different in that I will be giving my own personal opinion and have enlisted the help of one very experienced Tactical Expert, my husband. Join us today if you will.

Chunky Fruity Chicken Salad


I do like homemade chicken salad and love fruit so what a better combination to make.  Oh well guess this is semi-homemade because I used the Sam's Wholesale Rotisserie Chicken, instead of baking my own.  We like them for a change and so much can be made from them.  This is a very delicious recipe.  I threw everything in it but the bananas, cherries and nectarines we had on hand.  Hey maybe next time.


Island Garden Finish



I can't believe how fast time flies!  Can you?  This was done almost two months ago!  Where does the Spring and Summer go?  Showing the finished garden today.  

Floating Garden Makeover




This project took a lot of hard work and energy to pull off.  You can see in the before picture just how badly it was needed. We have many more gardening beds that have been put on hold until cooler weather.  I am thrilled to share this one with you now.

Lemon Buttercream Frosting


I really love lemon anything.  Do you?  Make your favorite cake recipe and then top it off with this delicious although not so lite frosting!

Growing Lettuce Inside


Hi all! Hope your Summer is going well!  Today I'm talking about a subject near and dear to my heart.  We love salads around here and they can't be beat with the fresh ingredients in season!  Have you seen all of the recalls and warnings that have been issued?  Just, today another is out concerning lettuce and Cyclospora Parasite . It is becoming harder to have a safe food source it seems.  You know I've grown some great herbs in the Miracle-Gro Aerogarden. Some are outdoors in deck pots that were rooted in this system.  Lettuce oh my the lettuce you can grow in this thing!  It will germinate and grow up to the top of the lights as if it is magic.  I kid you not!  I'll show you some pictures today.
