Tea Time! 


It was such an honor to be able to meet one of the most talented and inspirational friends I have – Donna Cronk! A couple days ago Donna and Travis came to Glen Oaks Health Campus and had “tea time” with my Mom, Darla, my Grandma Deloris and I. It was such a fabulous time! 

Read all about it – and my “Dessert Donation” here –

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.

Here is a photograph that took place during one of MY earliest memories. I was less than two years old…

Chew This – Judi’s Red Cabbage Salad

Sharing recipes (and memories) with friends and family are really special moments. My “Chew This!” column today is dedicated to a near and dear friend of mine – Judi. She is one of the strongest women I know, in many ways.

My Grandma Barbra and I first met her awhile back, while we were out cookbook shopping. Ever since that first meeting, we have been close friends. She was so excited to share this recipe with me – and even MORE excited when I told her it was going to be a future column piece…she could not wait for it to be shared with everyone! I took the recipe, added some of my favorite seasonings, and it has been on rotation at the dinner table ever since.

It is simple, fresh and so delicious!

Thanks again Judi! Recipe collector, story sharer and friend.
