Chew This – BBQ Pineapple Chicken, Corn Pudding and Rice

Happy “Chew This!” Sunday! As many of you know – I have a food column for “The Courier-Times” that appears twice a month – every other Sunday. I love doing it, and I have so many people that give me great feedback and unwavering support. Today’s column is all about southern style (and inspired) food – one of my favorite  cuisines! This column shares several recipes, and I really hope you will enjoy…

Chew This – Old-Fashioned Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Fudge Frosting

Happy “Chew This!” Sunday! Please pick up a copy of “The Courier-Times” today – or become an online subscriber – and let me know what you think of my newest column! I am beyond excited to share this recipe with everyone. Every time I eat, or make, Devil’s Food cake – especially cupcakes – I think of my Great Grandma Flora. These cupcakes are a family favorite and I think they will quickly become a personal favorite for you as well. Try them – and let me know what you think. 

On a side note – send me an email and let me know YOUR “earliest” childhood memory and how old you were. I write in my column that in the photograph I was two years old – I may have actually been less than that. Maybe a year old!? True story – I remember.
