Welcome to my Blog!


Just let me say, I have missed you all so much! Visiting with my friends and customers at LD’s Specialties & Gourmet Cafe was always the best part of my day! Now I find myself talking to my dogs, Rebel and Rowdy for hours on end. And when I go to Wal Mart I’m talking to the check out girls about politics, the weather, property taxes, the price of grapes, their hair style, and on and on and on! Yikes! I’m sure they cringe when they see me coming! Anyway, I’m so glad to be able to talk to all of you again!

Many of you asked, begged, pleaded and even cried for some of my recipes. And at the time I may have said something like “If I told you I would have to kill you!” or since I really liked you (and I did not want to get blood on the carpet) maybe I just wrote it down for you. Ha! Anyway, I will be sharing my coveted recipes from the LD’s menu, some of my long time family favorites and some fun new recipes for you to try!  Sign up to follow my blog so you don’t miss a thing!
