Where getting lost is part of the adventure… and finding your way home a pleasant surprise.


A little bit about Vernon Wade

There are lots of cooks out there who actually know what they are doing. I pretty much taught myself to cook, out of necessity. I haven’t a clue most of the time, but I do love to eat. 

I have made everything posted here. If I can do it, you certainly can. Someday, if there is enough interest, I will gather all these recipes into a cookbook. In the meantime, in the spirit of dashes, dollops and three-fingered pinches, I present them here for you to try. Let me know what you think.

Mike came over for a socially distant visit. We ordered takeout from Apple Valley BBQ. Mike had ribs and beans. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich, Parmesan fries and a nice salad.






Call the Guinness Book of Records! Mike made it through a quarter rack of BBQ ribs  and half of a Porter Brownie Sunday  without sliming his white T-shirt.

A good time was had by all.
