Born in Florida, a cracker gal, I spent 18 years in Massena, NY ~ the tundra of the United States (& Yankee country). God brought us south to an incredible adventure in North Carolina, and now a new season begins in Georgia...

Food and Stuff...
Remember the unsuccessful attempt to make peanut butter chicken for my Little Men? Well, success at last!
Not bad for only the second try. This one was marinated for quite awhile before flouring and frying. It was sooooooo crispy on the outside and juicy inside. Yum! It's unanimous, we have a winner! Now when Jordan is craving Peanut Butter Chicken, no problem!
Speaking of Jordan, he's very happy with his new grater. All my boys enjoy being in the kitchen and I love having them with me.
Pork Steak is a very easy dinner. The guys love how tender the pork tastes. S&P and flour it before browning. Add onions, thyme, broth and simmer it covered.... seriously, that's it. Here's a secret, I'm not a meat person unless it's extremely tender and this is!
John and Joseph have moved around their furniture and it's very spacey. The boys, and Lily, spend a lot of time here. *Sigh* It's so nice and clean. :)
I saved dessert for last. Cream Cheese Tarts.
This is one of my favorite recipes from my mom. I ended up making them two weeks in a row. They were for John's last soccer game. I made them the first week and then the game was rained out! We just shared with our neighbors, had some ourselves, and made them again. These tarts are so easy and yummy.
