If you’re ready for fall and you love apples and cinnamon, this is a recipe you’re going to want to try. And if you’re a fan of Cracker Barrel’s fried apples, you’ll love this healthier version, too. Only 1/4 cup sugar for the whole batch.
This is one of my favorite pastas to make because it’s so easy, only requires one pan from start to finish, and it’s incredibly delicious! It was included in Martha Stewart’s magazine in the early-2000s after a chef in southern Italy showed her food editors how to make it in his restaurant kitchen. It’s been in rotation since then with all kinds of tweaks and customizations, but Martha’s original is my favorite.
So many times we see old cast iron pans that have been allowed to turn into orange, rusty messes, and some folks think they can’t be saved, so they throw them out. But most of the time, they can be salvaged with these "hacks" from Mama Steph.
This dessert really reminds me of the Christmas holidays, because every year my dad would buy us a box of chocolate covered cherries to share. They were so special, because we only had them once a year.
I recently visited Maui to stay with my son and daughter-in-law who live there. We enjoyed a wonderful visit and lots of local food while I was there. Hawaii has a unique cuisine featuring fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. But this recipe is one that was developed because it could be made with shelf-stable ingredients when food was more scarce: macaroni salad.
When I chose these recipes, I had in mind several things: it’s time for back-to-school routines to start, time is short, but we all still want something delicious for breakfast, lunch, or supper. Plus, I have a sweet idea that will cool you down, because we all know it’s still hot in East Texas!
Some recipes take us back in time to childhood; for me, this no-bake cookie recipe does just that. They remind me of the no-bake cookies we were served in my elementary school classroom, only a little bit better, if you can even imagine. Give them a try; no oven needed!

The temps hovered around 100 degrees, but the sales were even hotter. Check out some of the stuff Jeff picked up this week, with items from the advertising world, as well as a Korean War-era kitchen item.
Jeff looks forward to estate sales because there usually is a good variety of items from the 70s, 60s and even 50s. But this time we found a sale full of toys, clothes and kitchen items from more recent times.
This week, Jeff and Mrs. Picker decided to take a little tour of East Texas, rather than stay close to home. There were several estate sales around the region so we think we made the right choice as there were many treasures on the cheap!
A fresh salad during the summer months is always a popular choice for lunch, or to serve for dinner, especially when you’re grilling out. This salad is unusual but the ingredients work together perfectly to make a salad you’ll enjoy.

This salad is a flavorful twist on the usual watermelon salad, as it’s been kicked up by the addition of fresh jalapenos to its combination of melon, cucumber and mint. Try this one alongside grilled or smoked meats for a bright, delicious contrast.
With a variety of toppings to choose from such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa, jalapeños, cheese, avocado, sour cream, onion, and cilantro, these tacos are easily customizable to satisfy everyone’s taste buds.
When warm weather rolls around, many of us like to lighten up our meals by incorporating salads. We also like to get the grill nice and hot to cook a steak or two. This recipe incorporates both of those delicious ideas into one filling dinner salad.
In honor of Father’s Day, Mama Steph invited her friends and colleagues Anissa Centers and Kristine Guevara to share a favorite recipe or two that remind them of their own father or the father of their children, whichever the case may be. These are simple recipes that your favorite guy will enjoy on his special day... or any day.
