I am most passionate about cooking. I believe with cooking you can always growÖ I fried my first egg when I was 2, and baked my first cake at 5. Cooking is an easy and dynamic experience if you have a passion for a good tasting meal.

Seasons of Joy (Merry Christmas)

Celebrating family and friends in the season of joy is a blessing to say the least. With all that is going on in and around this nation/world. We need out family and without family where are we?

It was just a few weeks ago my family and I came together to give thanks.  I must say we had an awesome and fun filled Thanksgiving.  I hope you and your family had just as much fun as my family and I did.


 he food was lip-smacking good and some of my family is still recovering from the always popular Turkey and Mc n cheese.  While questioning whatís on the menu for Christmas? Can a girl get a minuteÖ whew!

However, the moment is pasting with a vengeances and within a blink of an eye Christmas will be up on us.  

So, I am going to have all the fixings  Roast Turkey, Cornbread Dressing, Green Peas, Corn pudding with White Cheddar,  Dinner Rolls, Candied Sweet Potatoes,  Honey Baked Ham, Cranberry Sauce , Mac n Cheese, and  this year Iím adding  to my  Christmas dinner menu Crispy Crab Nuggets. 

I found this recipe on FaceBook, and I must say it  looked  smashing (British humor)  that I thought I would try  it before I made it for the rest of the family and when tell you as I sit here typing that these cabs nuggets makes you want to slap your mama. You will want to slap your mama and daddy (laughing).  Try this recipe and let me know how it comes out.

To all my readers,

I donít see myself as a real cook. I enjoy finding recipes its fun, and because I love to cook, sharing recipes with you was a bonus. Let me say thank you to the editor Raqui for taking a chance on me. She called me up and asked if I would like to be a writer for L. I.C. and to tell you the truth I didnít want to it to do (for reasons you may not understand).

Itís certainly flattering, and gradually I was grateful for the opportunity because it shown a spotlight on my interest. Itís hard saying goodbye to a job that I have grown to love. To my editor and chef It is a strange feeling for me to think that next year I will not be a on a team. I know youíve devoted your life to a dream and that dream has run its course and as the flames dies the ashes rise the dream will be born again.

Thank you! Itís time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and Iíd much rather say hello.

Crispy Crab Nuggets

1 pound fresh crab meat
3 slices of white bread, crust removed or packaged bread crumbs
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 tablespoon parsley

Put breadcrumbs in food processor so they are chopped up fine (to save time). In a large bowl, mix together egg, mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and Old Bay seasoning. Add breadcrumbs and crab meat and mix by hand to avoid breaking up too many of the lumps. You may need to break up the very large lumps however so the crab balls will stay together. Shape into 24 balls and fry in batches in hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Serve with your favorite sauce or donít use any! These are so good!

Make Ahead The pudding can be prepared through Step 2 and refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before proceeding.

Bon Appetite!
