F Is For Food

After talking about Elvis yesterday, it made me hungry thinking about how him and I share a love for peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
I knew then, today would be all about food.
I'm a thin woman, but don't let that fool you! I can eat! And I love to eat good food, but better still I love to cook!
I love it so much I started a blog on Wordpress, called Fredalicious Eats, but I have lacked in the upkeep. Maybe this will give me inspiration to get back at it again.
Here are some of my favorite dishes to make for my family.

Banana Bread... never lasts in my house.

Caesar Salad... I even make my own dressing and it's deadly!

Chili is fantastic on a stormy cold night!

Love me some kebobs!!! OMG!!!

My Maple Walnut cookies are AH-mazing! I'm just sayin'.

My sauce on Sunday is famous in these parts. Of my family anyway.

My favorite fruit is called ironically, the Fruit of the Gods, Pomegranate.

Last a photo of me, Freda. Also my Facebook profile photo if you wanna look me up.

  12. I love to cook too! I am a southern girl so I make many foods you find in the south....fried okra, fried chicken, beans and greens, cornbread, etc. but I also am a big fan of Barefoot Contessa and make many "french-inspired" dishes. Keep up the good cooking, you would be amazing at how many people don't know how! thanks for commenting on my post.

  13. After reading all the comments I see I'm not the only one interested in the Maple Walnut cookie recipe. I like pomegranates too but lately I've been on an apple kick, I love those things.

  14. yay! thanks for the link to the recipe of the cookies. i tried it this week and got a hybrid. i wasn't paying attention and added honey instead of maple syrup. eeeeek! so then i went ahead and added the maple syrup as required and ended up with delicious maple walnut honey cookies. yum! yum!

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
