Cooking with Cindy

Fruits of Hopkins County: Figs

One of the perks of having a husband in the ministry is the lovely food gifts that come to my family from members of the congregation. Some of my favorite are the delicious jams, preserves and jellies made from recipes handed down through their families. This time of year I also adore the chance to share in the bounty of my Sulphur Springs neighbors when they generously share their bumper crops of figs, plums and pears.


A brief history of wedding cake

As I sit here tonight and write, I am up to my elbows in icing. My kitchen has the smell of a bakery and we haven't eaten supper in the kitchen in a week.


Potato salad: Everyone’s summertime favorite

Summer grills are at full fire and picnics are on the rise.  Barbecue, a summer staple for parts of the country and a year-round fix for Texans, is also on the menu.  When you think grill, picnic and barbecue there has to be a potato salad somewhere in the vicinity.


What to eat when you’re dieting

It is that dreaded time of year that makes all women, yes even the relatively thin ones, cringe. Time to try on, buy and wear a swimming suit. Like most of America, I am always on the look-out for the miracle diet. We all want something that will satisfy our food needs and yet help our bodies to be healthy and fit.


Disease-fighting foods

Although I love stews and soups, I never thought I would be craving a bowl of hot, chicken noodle soup during the first week of May. Caught in the misery of my first bad cold of the year, that is where I found myself a few weeks ago. As I pulled out my favorite comfort foods and beverages to fight my symptoms, and listened to reports of the ever-expanding flu, I realized that we can't just be vigilante about our immune systems during the winter. We have to stay on top of things all year.
