Christmas Sweet Treats::Party Style

by Edie Wadsworth on December 6, 2011

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. […]


Give Thanks

by Edie Wadsworth on November 22, 2011


So, how long have you and I been going steady? Like 3 years, I think? Well, except for that time you broke up with me when I posted about Loretta Lynn. And okay, the mullet made you a little uncomfortable.   And the bluegrass. But all and all, we’re pretty solid, you and I.  I […]

Rocky Top Chili Recipe aka {Best Chili Recipe Ever}

by Edie Wadsworth on September 12, 2011


We’re having chili tonight because 1) we take our football seriously around here and 2) it’s my husbands’ love language. I call it Rocky Top chili because we live in Volunteer Country and who doesn’t love to to hear Rocky Top play 20 twenty times on a continuous loop?! I rest my case. There are […]

cheese tortellini soup

Taylor and Caiti were home this weekend for the Verity’s last concert and we had one of our old favorites—cheese tortellini soup.   I think my friend Sue first made it for me and then I just took the idea and figured it out for my family.    My finicky nieces even love it.  (Right, […]

Greetings from a very quiet house this morning.   My girls got into trouble, bickering and sassing and whatnot, so I’ve banned them temporarily from my presence and given them a hefty amount of history to do.  Don’t feel too sorry for them.   They spend most of their time with me anyways and they’re […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

hulk cookies

I never intended to make superhero cookies. But after I dipped my lovely shortbread wonders into the chocolate coating, they looked EX.ACT.LY like the hulk.   It took me back to 1977, the year of my first perm and my first pair of Trax,   when my brother would let me tag along with him […]

{Chipotle Pumpkin Barley Soup} with chicken

by Edie Wadsworth on October 6, 2010

Here’s how it happened. I went to bookclub at Sandy’s and she served two kinds of soups:  pumpkin-apple and chicken and barley. I’m  a mixer, a layer-er, a lumper not a splitter.    I layer clothes and jewelry and apparently food.     So I mixed the two together and it was fantastic. I came […]
