I got this recipe from my friend at Simply Nanna and it makes a great refreshing dip. When I make this, I add 2 – 4 large cucumbers because I love, love, love cucumbers. It’s a great way to use of some of those cucumbers that are ready in the garden. If you want a milder cucumber taste, add […]

The title of my recipes should be called “No measuring required” because that is how I was taught to cook by my grandmothers. It’s hard for me to give exact measurements since I just slice, dice, and toss. This is another one of those recipes where you can’t go wrong. Really! There is no right […]

Usually summer rolls around, gardens are planted, and everyone ends up with squash and zucchini. Not just some squash, but so much squash that you are begging people to take it. I love to stir fry it with onions but after 3 weeks of stir fried squash, I knew I had to come up with another […]

Homemade Pomegranate Jelly | Sweet Southern Blue

There are several methods for extracting your pomegranate juice.  I cut my pomegranates in half and scoop out the seeds.  I then place the seeds in a saucepan,  cover with water and bring to a boil.  I then strain the juice/seeds through a jelly cloth or cheesecloth.  If you don’t have fresh pomegranates, you can purchase […]
