Bio:

I am a surface design artist living in Northern Virginia with roots in Louisiana. I have an extensive background in graphic design and art education. I LOVE to cook and my claim to fame is that my tortilla soup recipe was published in Southern Living magazine!! I find inspiration each day in the world around me through nature, literature, music, people and places (including the kitchen!). I love the idea of creating happy art and doing my small part to make the world a better place. 😊

Don’t let the title fool you, this is NOT a healthy dish! The recipe was first published in 1959 by the Junior League of Baton Rouge in its first community cookbook, River Road Recipes I. It’s truly a classic! My mom has made it as long as I can remember, and I’ve carried on the tradition! The original recipe calls for 2 packs of spinach, but I prefer using three. I also usually add a little Tony Cachere’s seasoning for good measure, but that’s a little secret only for those of you that take the time to read this note! ;)

My family has a bit of a connection to Elvis. When my parents were stationed in Kileen, TX, he and his girlfriend borrowed my parents car to go on a date so they wouldn't get followed! (Little did my parents know at the time what a big star he would become or they would've probably kept the car!!) Needless to say, I was SO excited to find this recipe on the Peanut Butter Lovers website! What a great combination! Elvis knew his music AND his food apparently!

This is my mom's recipe from the 70's and it's still as yummy as ever! One really cool thing about this chocolate sauce is that it stays soft in the freezer so it's perfect for make ahead parfaits! We all have a set of those parfait glasses, right? Put them to good use at your next party!

Light and flaky blueberry scones, perfect with a nice cup of coffee and a good friend. This recipe is easy to make and a bit lighter than traditional scones. You can substitute the blueberries with chocolate chips, cranberries, mixed berries, cinnamon chips...so many possibilities!
