Eggs, Bacon and Gravy, what more could you ask for.

Recently I was looking through a stack of food magazines tearing out recipes before the magazines got trashed. I saw a recipe in Southern Living magazine for Creamy Baked Eggs with herbs.

This particular recipe was baked in cream and herbs and got me thinking that wouldn’t gravy be a lot better tasting than just cream. I’m thinking a nice thin milk gravy made with bacon drippings, of course, would be so good with the eggs and then a good sprinkling of crumbled bacon and maybe some fresh chives […]

I finally found some sugar cane and wanted to use it.

I’ve always wanted to make something on a sugar cane skewer and now I have. And now that I have I may just save it for drink skewers. This recipe would have been much faster using ordinary wooden skewers. That said, don’t worry about looking for sugar cane, just get out those long pics.

U.S. Does...Messina Hof Harvest Bash 2016
As grape harvest season comes to a close, there is no better way to celebrate than at Messina Hof Winery. I was thrilled to be able to visit this Texas winery to help raise a toast to the end of their annual Harvest Festival with a special media bash. This elegant evening kicked off with a glass of the very new Sparkling Spumante. This was an exclusive taste of the wine, as we were the only group, apart from the staff, to try it before its release the next day! The new Spumante is made with Muscat Canelli in the…
