  • I love rhubarb. As a kid growing up, we had a large bed of rhubarb and asparagus.

    I have tried growing rhubarb three times but I think last year was the most successful and despite the cold winter temperature, all four plants came up and I have cut enough to fix the Strawberry Rhubarb pie. Yum! It was quite the hit at the Derby Party along with Coconut Cream Pie and Bourbon Pecan Pie.

  • One of my favorite things to do is try a dish at a restaurant and then attempt to reproduce it at home. Sometimes I get pretty close; other times it’s a massive failure.

    On a trip to Olive Garden several years ago, I tried fried ravioli. It quickly became one of my favorites.

    A frequent stop on vacations in Gatlinburg is an Italian restaurant called Best Italian. One of its appetizers is the best fried ravioli you’ve ever put in your mouth.
