Pecan Pie and Bourbon Whipped Cream

Pecan pie is a staple in the south. It’s an easy pie to make, so there’s no excuse not to serve it at your next get together or just as a yummy dessert. Pecan is pronounced peh’ cahn, by the way, not pee’ can. I like my pecan pie straight up, but some people like […]

Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk pie is another one of my favorites. Don’t worry if you don’t like buttermilk; you can’t taste it. 1/2 cup butter melted 1 1/2 cups white sugar 3 teaspoons all-purpose flour 3 eggs 1 cup buttermilk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust (Some people prefer a […]

A Pirate’s Life For Me

FAR RIDER is primarily the story of a young woman’s search for identity and a quest to gain respect. It could be a navel gazer except for the pirates, kidnappers, demons, civil war, genocide and senile wizard. I’m at the point in revisions now where the main pirate, Captain Boots Trelaine, is revealing more of […]
