And the Food Stories Continue...Yum!

Michele from Beautiful Orchids shared one of her favorite dishes as her food story entry. Thanks, Michele! (The pics on Lake Michigan are great - looks like you guys had a great day of boating. Cheers!)

One of my favorite recipes is simple and delicious! It is spaghetti and homemade meatballs!!! This is one of my top dishes for serving guests. I find most folks like Italian food. I make my own sauce and meatballs. When I serve the dish I top it off with freshly shredded basil from my basil plant! Along with the main course is a crispy salad. We also have freshly grated Romano or Parmesan cheese...freshly ground pepper and a steamy loaf of bread...sometimes we have herbed olive oil for dipping too....we can't forget the semi-sweet Merlot....there is the atmosphere as well....candles burning and Italian music playing in the background!!!!!

Elizabeth, from Kentucky Mama, shared this sweet (in more ways than one) story about her grandmother's recipe. Be sure to stop by her blog - that gal is doing some serious home renovations!

One of my favorite recipes is my grandmother's brownies. She always made them for me growing up. When i got older, I was given a cookbook with that recipe written in it. she had cut it out of a newspaper the night I was born while she was in the waiting room. Neat story, huh?

More stories to come later in the week.
