On the Menu This Week

I wish I had a really good tale to share in this issue, but I don't. A combination of busyness and laziness has kept me at home for most of the week.

I made Mushroom Cobbler for the first ...

Do you remember the frozen ones that we all used to eat when we were kids? I still love those things. They're one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Mama used to serve chicken pot pies hot from the oven for an after school snack when my brother Ray and I were growing up in Wilson, North Carolina. They were especially scrumptious on cold winter days. My husband Vince, on the other hand, doesn't like them at all. So, when I concocted a new pot pie recipe, he was a bit skeptical -- until he tasted it. This rich and ...
