IOWA’S GRILLED TURKEY TENDERS

Next Sunday is Father's Day, a day to remember and celebrate; after-all the first man in every woman's life is her father. The men any girl meets later on and her relationship depends, to some extent to her relationship to her Dad. The greatest gift a Dad can give is to be always there. Dads ...

OVERNIGHT COFFEE CAKE

Everybody's favorite season will soon be here again, that is if you are a child. For children, summer brings wonderful warm weather and that glorious feeling of freedom from shoes, schedules and the indoors. For all of us adults (even those whose 9 to 5 weekdays don't end when summer starts), ...

MOCK FILLET MIGNON

Where did the month of May go? It seems like a wink of eye my tulips, rhododendron and lilacs are gone. Every year, May is such a busy month. It moves along without giving me a chance to enjoy the springtime as I really would like. I have found out seasons come and go without waiting for me. I ...

GRILLED HERB POTATOES

THE BEST POT-ROAST EVER

May is here and I only hope it isn't a repeat of April. It has been a trying spring to be in the business of farming. There are some people that only worry about a planned picnic, or a day to play golf, or just to be outside, not like farmers, who worry about the weather for their everyday ...

CARAMEL PULL-APARTS

Spring is having a hard time coming this year; just when I think it's really here, we have a forecast of cold weather with not just rain, but snow. April is a also a hopeful month. It's a wonderful thing to discover spring at the end of a long winter. One of the things I love about living in a ...

APPLE CARMEL BARS

I know I have told you readers before that spring is my favorite season, it is special. Spring can also mean unpredictable weather, like we have been having. I even heard there could be snow at the end of the week. The real beginning of spring for me is when the fields are being planted and ...
