|Chicken and Butter Beans - smothered chicken cooked in a roux with baby lima beans, pictured here with creamed brussels sprouts.|
Chicken and Butter BeansI have been busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs y'all!! We have the grandkids everyday now after school - which I love, love, love, don't get me wrong. Since our move to be closer to them six months ago, we have seen and spent more time with them from since they were born. It isn't that we were all that far away from them to begin with, but where we did live was off the beaten path and far enough away to be inconvenient for everybody. It does leave me with a small window of time in the mornings to get everything done though, and believe me, it goes by quick! I suppose that some of you moms know exactly what I mean.

If you watch or DVR the daytime shows, you probably remember seeing Martina McBride recently making the rounds with her new book, "Around the Table: Recipes and Inspiration for Gatherings Throughout the Year." Besides having a successful music career, turns out Martina has a passion for entertaining too and, because it's such a daunting process for so many of us, she wanted to bring a book to the public that would show step-by-step how we can do it too.

|Homemade from scratch Sour Cream Coffeecake, a dense and rich, great tasting cake that is at its peak flavor when served the next day, once the sugars and flavors have settled a bit. Make it ahead whenever you can!|
Sour Cream CoffeecakeMany of us are familiar with the classic Duncan Hines sour cream 'Sock it to Me' bundt cake, or at least with some family-adapted version of it. It's an enhanced cake mix cake, made with a swirl of brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts in the center, a recipe that's held its own for years and is still well-loved.
I have nothing against cake mixes at all, although, depending on the brand, I often find them overly sweet to my taste buds, but like most everybody else, I certainly use them from time to time. In fact, some of my favorite cakes start with one!

Divine CasseroleThis is one of those casseroles that's been around forever and is found in almost every old cookbook I own, though it's got as many names as the cookbooks where you'll find it.
You may remember it as Sour Cream Noodle Bake, Sour Cream Baked Spaghetti, Husband's Delight, Italian Delight and I've even heard it called Godfather Casserole. I'm sure there are others I've forgotten. The only difference, as usual, is the variation in the amounts of the ingredients, and sometimes in the process. Typically containing noodles, most often egg noodles, but sometimes spaghetti, to which is added a layer of cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream or some combination of them, the casserole is then topped with a ground beef tomato sauce.

|Buttermilk cornbread made with cheese, jalapenos, corn kernels and honey and finished with a honey butter glaze.|
Honey Jalapeno CornbreadI made a pot of taco soup on Saturday. The weather was overcast and cloudy, dreary really... the kind of weekend weather that just makes you want to nap all day. Or get in the kitchen and cook something.

BBQ Cheeseburger Meatloaf MinisIt's Fall y'all!! Well, so says the calendar at least finally, and while we've only "cooled" down a bit here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast - mid to high 80s and some cooler nighttime temperatures - I'll take it!! This weekend was absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed it in its entirety.

|Classic peas and pasta salad, made with tiny shell pasta and dressed with homemade buttermilk Ranch, spicy mustard, dill, red onion, cubed cheese, bacon and gently tossed with tuna fillets.|
Peas and Pasta Salad with TunaOkay y'all. I know everybody's in fall mode, sharing their favorite apple recipes, and pumpkin recipes won't be far behind - if they haven't started up already. Heck, we're only in the high 80s this week here in South Mississippi, so that's practically fall weather here, far as we are concerned. But... I'm gonna squeeze in at least one more "summer" recipe before the calendar tells me it's officially fall.

|Iced Refrigerator Cucumber Salad - a tart and crisp cucumber salad.|
Iced Refrigerator Cucumber SaladI'm not quite ready to let go of the summer and start up with fall recipes. Oh, I'm definitely ready to bid summer goodbye alright. To walk outside and feel that fresh, crisp fall air, the kind that sends a quick chill down your spine and requires at least a light sweater. I'm ready to turn off the air conditioner and get some relief from those high summer cooling bills. Maybe even open the windows and let fresh air flow through the house and put on a pot of hearty soup or chili. That's sure to be awhile yet here in The Deep South.
