How to Make Salsa (for canning)

by Edie Wadsworth on August 19, 2012

how to make salsa

  The first time I ever had this salsa, I was in the North Woods on vacation and Mi-uss Vicki (as my Southern self calls her) brought this to the cabin for our snacking pleasures.  I was smitten and determined to never let a summer go by without canning salsa up a storm.   This […]

family fourth fest

by Edie Wadsworth on July 14, 2012

The whole shebang was Stevie’s idea. He wanted the family to join us for a huge, week-long Fourth-A-July fun fest. He started inviting them a year ago so that everyone could make plans to vacation in Bean Station, Tennessee and celebrate with us the rebuilding of our home.   It was a family fun week […]


I blame this all on Sara. She brought these cookies to our house on the 3rd of June and I’ll never forget the look in her eyes. She knew what she was doing to me and she did it in cold blood. And I was skeptical at first.  Cherry?  In my chocolate chip cookies?  I […]


My friend Jen is hosting a ‘must try’ recipes contest today with 8 other bloggers.  This week is such perfect timing since we’ll all be trying to think of new and tasty recipes to make for our Memorial Day cookouts!    The contest lasts for 24 hours and you can only comment once.  I’d be […]

taco casserole

You can thank Stevie for this taco casserole recipe because here’s exactly what he said at dinner. Stevie:  ”Is there a recipe for this?” Me: “No, I improvised because I’m so desperate to go to the store and had to use what I had on hand.” Stevie: “I want you to go write it down […]

vinaigrette recipes

I haven’t bought store bought dressing in ten years and when I do have occasion to eat it, I’m always disappointed. Well, that’s a bit of a lie. I do from time to time buy ranch dressing so my girls will make nice will their carrots. But dressings that we eat on salads? Only homeade, […]

Italian Sub Soup

italian sub soup

Italian Sub Soup My mother has many charming qualities but one of my favorites is the way she says Italian (Eye-talian) and Hawaii (Hiii-wah-ya). I think I’ll make it my personal goal to make sure she says those two words every time I see her. It may be tricky but it’s too cute to pass […]

We made it to Friday, comrades! I don’t know about you but I wasn’t sure I’d make it to Friday in the same size jeans. I’m still not sure. I have the stretchy variety on at the moment and I wish for all the world I could keep it that way. I must confess that […]


Christmas Sweet Treats::Party Style

christmas cheer

This is where I confess to you my absolute inability to resist homeade fudge.    I briefly tried today to see how long I could make one piece last.   My spiritual gift is not will power.   It wasn’t pretty. But fudge freezes so maybe I’ll put the bounty in the freezer.   Not […]

Cranberry and Onion Cheeseball aka Christmas Cheeseball

by Edie Wadsworth on December 3, 2011

I’m finally joining my own party.  I had one of those long productive days that have you saying at 8pm,  ”Is this the first time I’ve sat down all day?” The girls and I didn’t finish school until 5pm and I cooked and cleaned and decorated all day in between teaching/facilitating school. Whew!  I’m weary. […]
