Q and A

 

Q and A is the spot for your food and entertaining related questions. Over time I have developed tricks that help me when it comes to planning a dinner party or throwing a fun party. As with most things, practice makes for less headaches.

What questions do you have ?

How may I help with your cooking or party planning? What do you find difficult about entertaining? Does the idea of having company over for a meal make you sweat? How often do you entertain? Have you learned to enjoy it yet?

Over the years, I have benefited from having fabulous cooks around me. Certainly the cooks I love have helped me  to become a better cook. A university of hard knocks  and great teachers  have helped me to prepare to answer all of your Q and A. If I don’t know the answers I know how to research to aid with the process.

In most cases I have found that people who love to cook also love to share their recipes and cooking tricks . Always my favorite cooks were not trained chefs nor did they cook in food service. Yet I learned a ton by watching, doing and practicing.

  1. Looking to attend the 30a songwriters festival in Jan, 2020. I recognize very few artists but am open to new music. In general, looking for very small, non crowded venues where won’t have to fight crowds. If you were to pick an area to stay that is well located near these more intimate types of venues as opposed to the large stages which area (s) would you choose from to pick accommodations. A friend of mine recommended Grayton Beach.

    1. Hello. I love this festival. Seaside is my first choice and Grayton following. (7miles away) I also enjoy the smaller venues. I would check to see which offers the best hotels/house rentals and decide. AJ’s at Grayton Beach has been one of the venues in the past. It is much larger but it has held the Tom Petty Tribute for the last two years. The Sun Dogs have hosted this but alot of artists jump in for a song or two. If you like Tom Petty, its a must catch show. Let me know if I may assist further. Have you attended this before? If not, I wrote a couple of posts on Navigating 30a Songwriters to make the most of it. You may want to read for ideas. The first year is was tough trying to figure out the best way to manage 200 artists in 30 plus venues in 3-4 days.

    2. I was also unfamiliar with most artists. Everyone is talented. This festival has a wide variety of music. Tell me your favorite type of music and I can make some suggestions. I love discovering a new band, singer songwriters during the fest. Here are a few of my favs: Marc Broussard, Chris Stills (Steven’s son) GuruFish, Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Tall Pines, Adam Hood, Boukou Groove, Dan Navarro, David Ryan Harris,Eliot Bronson, The Sundogs, Paul Thorn, Shawn Mullins, Steve Poltz & Carsie Blanton. Aaron Lee Tasjan is worthy of adding to your list to witness a performance that provides a show and blazing guitar skills.

      Buy your tickets early because they sold out last year months before event.

  2. Mimi, I heard of a Persimmon Nut Bread. Knowing of your persimmons, I wondered if you had something in mind. Loved using your recipes of Cheese Ring and Candied Pecans. They were such a success at a Bridal Shower. I was so proud of the Cheese Ring. It was so pretty. Of course, everyone loved the Pecans.
    Thank you, ☺️

    1. I have a Persimmon Walnut Sticky Bread in the dessert category. Check it out and let me know what you think. I am happy the Cheese ring and Candied Pecans turned out well. Happy Cooking

    1. The cakes shown were created for my sister’s wedding Ga Peach. A very sweet friend made the cakes for her wedding. She did a fabulous job. Now that I think about it, I believe that she also made my wedding cake when I married the “starter husband”. The cake was better than the marriage….

  3. Very substantive and stimulating web site. I do enjoy all the culinary beauty. Great photos of very tasty looking food. The recipes are wonderful to have at hand.
