Welcome to my virtual kitchen!

I hope you enjoy your visit here, whether it’s your first time or your 30th. I first started sharing my recipes as Facebook Notes, until my friends started asking how they could share them with their friends; so I gathered my courage and tiptoed into the world of blogging via Tumblr. As interest in the blog started “cooking,” my wonderful hubby set me up at WordPress with my own domain. (All the content from my previous blog moved here as well.) Let me know what you think, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference!


Dub’s Is the Place!

Tonight we had dinner at a true local institution. Dub’s Place has been around since the mid-20th century, and still has much of the same retro decor. We have enjoyed getting their milkshakes to go since before we were married; but until recently, having a meal inside with the order window was a challenge due to space constrictions and dining on the patio was usually hot. Now they have enclosed the dining space, including two roll-up sides and air conditioning, and they even Incorporated the original sign into the design!

Their iconic classic is the Crumble Burger; but we went a little more upscale this time. The Bayou Burger with pimiento cheese and bacon and their site-smoked barbeque sandwich were both delicious; followed by soft-serve ice cream cones (which didn’t survive long enough to be photographed)!

After dinner, our church had a movie night under the stars; a perfect end to a great night.
