Southern Cheese Straws

You'll find cheese straws at parties, luncheons, weddings & almost any other kind of social event. They've been a favorite in the south for centuries. They're a little bit addicting, so expect them to disappear.

An old story tells us that a waste-not cook mixed leftover biscuit dough with cheese and rolled it into long “straws” and baked them.

Ham & Mushroom Frittata

It's the beginning of a new week in the new year! Many of you may be working on healthier eating options. This ham and mushroom frittata is a great low carb healthy option. It's practically no carb.

A frittata is like an open faced omelet or crustless quiche. It starts out on the stove top and is finished up in the oven. It's an easy recipe that doesn't take a lot of time, great for breakfast or brunch.

You can customize fillings to suit your taste too! I made this ham and mushroom frittata because I have leftover ham from the new year's day meal.


  • 1/2 c Ham, diced
