I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues

When I was growing up, my mother's go-to salad was a wedge of iceberg lettuce topped with a blob of chunky blue cheese dressing. She and Daddy scarfed it up like it was candy. I turned my nose up. What was the appeal of this stinky, gooey cheese stuff? Of course, I swore that I would never eat blue cheese. And, once again I'm eating my words. I love blue cheese!

You can choose your favorite variety. Personally, I like the stronger blues like gorgonzola. If you're ...

The dressing is slightly sweet and tangy. I still plan to test the recipe with strawberries ...

Thanks to the deluge of summer showers that we've been experiencing on Lady's Island, our yard has been full of all kinds of wild mushrooms. The neighborhood squirrels have been feasting, and sometimes gorging, on the various toadstools. Smart little darlings, they are. They can instinctively tell the delicious mushrooms from the poisonous ones. Vince and I have been going through a mushroom phase, too. Well, at least I have.

I made Mushroom Cobbler for the first ...
