Well, my weekend was almost a total wash. I spent most of Saturday in bed with an excruciating sinus headache. Except for about five hours I spent at my daughter's high school graduation. Got home and went straight back to bed. I couldn't even go out to dinner to celebrate.
Sunday was a little bet...

Yes, I deliberately mispelled pralines as praleans to better rhyme with New Orleans.
My wife has some business associates coming to New Orleans this weekend for a bachelorette party and asked me to make a batch of pralines to include in goodie bags she's making for all the ladies. Most have never b...

If you like and use green onions a good bit take the store bought onion and cut the white bulb(about 1.5-2 inches long)and just stick it in soil root end down. It will take root and whenever you need green onion tops just snip them off. They will continue to regrow and you'll have endless green onio...
