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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
