Raspberry Stacks

I am a morning person. I love waking up early before the sun rises and brewing a pot of hot, delicious, fresh coffee. The couple of weeks of where it’s transitioning from spring to summer is my most prized time and I will tell you why. In the morning it’s cool enough to open my…

Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

John Cameron          In order to make good gravy, you need the right ratio of fats, flavor and “flour” or thickener. In this recipe, and I use that term very loosely, I start by frying the breakfast sausage. Mine was very lean and didn’t give off very much fat, so I also…

Fruit Parfait

I have to confess that I am not really a yogurt person, well maybe frozen yogurt, but that is ice cream. Anyway, I do like fruit and I also like granola, and I need to lose some weight, but I just can’t give up chocolate. So, I need to cut back in some other areas. …
