Brandy Slush

A beautiful pine tree with lighted glimmer, frosted cookies adorned with sprinkles, embroidered stockings, packages with colorful ribbon, the crunch of snowy footsteps and brandy slush, Christmas is drawing near.

Black Walnut Cake

This morning was one of those peaceful mornings where it was just me and the kitchen. Yet, in a beautiful way, the room was abuzz with chatting and laughter and humming.. The racket of mixing bowls and beaters, the clinking of measuring cups and spoons. The warmth of being surrounded by family even though it was just me in a room with a recipe and a bag of black walnuts. It's a recipe with a lot of love behind it.

Brisket Omelet

Following is how to make the perfect omelet. And what makes it even more perfect than perfect? Filling it with wonderful slow cooked brisket. Add a side of diced hash browns and you have a plate that even a diner on Route 66 can't compete with. A slice of Texas toast would also go along fantastically, especially if you've had a hard day at work.
