Potato Leek and Toilet Seat Sausage Soup

Yep. You read it right.  Hungry? Toilet seat sausage. You know.  The kind you find by the lunch meat, next to the prepackages sausages. The one that is shaped exactly like a toilet seat.  Some call it kielbasa, or smoked sausage, but here we call it toilet seat sausage; named appropriately, many years ago, by…

My First Best and Last Meal

I have always wanted to document the food that we are cooking and eating here at home, for my kids, and also to help other families stay gathered around the table; families on a budget, families dealing with food intolerances, allergies, or just those who want to take control of what they are consuming.

What’s In A Name?

My name is Whitney Sweet.  I came by the “sweet” part by marriage.  He came by it naturally both by birthright and by the fact that he IS indeed the sweetest man you will ever meet.  I have had to work a little harder to earn my namesake. Let’s just say I moved up in…
