The Masters in Augusta is one of the most storied golf tournaments; held at Augusta National on beautiful, almost hallowed ground. This tournament is about Tradition, Sportsmanship, Southern Hospitality, Good Manners, Good Simple Food at fair prices, and Great Golf. It is about legends in the golfing world. Badges (tickets) to the tournament are passed […]
Just in time for the Tennessee Vols/Florida Gators game in Knoxville…sliders are perfect for tailgating. THIS VIDEO FROM TASTY WILL MAKE YOUR MOUTH WATER! With the Tennessee Volunteers taking on the Florida Gators in Knoxville, I thought a Tennessee Slider and a Florida Slider would be appropriate. These Tennessee sliders were inspired by my […]
Living in the South is a wonderful predicament, but as all Southerners know it sure gets hot and humid. Especially in August. To escape the heat, Dave and I are visiting 2 of our favorite states, Vermont and Maine. The Green Mountains of Vermont, surrounded by fertile valleys, flowered meadows, white clapboard houses and barns […]
August is a month when families gather for that last “before school starts” trip to the beach. Sue and Steve Braddock celebrated their children’s and grandchildren’s visit with a picnic at the beach. When families live in different places it is difficult to gather all together at the same time. When this happens it becomes […]

This time last year I connected the dots between the 2 Super Bowl quarterbacks and their perspective colleges. Think I will do the same thing this year. Next week I will add recipes representing their pro teams and cities. Tailgating can be accomplished anywhere; on a college campus, at a pro stadium, or in […]
Orange is one of my favorite colors. In earlier times, I rarely used orange in flower arrangements, garden planting, home decorating and especially when choosing my wardrobe. I always gravitated towards reds, pinks and purples. It wasn’t until I started painting landscapes, that I realized without orange the other colors do not pop. (Try painting […]
My previous post referenced the Dog Days of Summer, those hot August days that find us waiting for back to school, back to football and back to tailgating. South Island Living, a publication for Amelia Island Plantation residents, featured our dock overlooking the Intracoastal waterway with our son, James and 2 special pups; Sheldon, a […]
Are we still in the Dog Days Of Summer? Those hot August Days that seem to drag on and on? We’re waiting for back to school, back to football and back to tailgating. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Susan Scarborough, a talented photographer and as I soon found out, a […]
I believe tailgating can be accomplished anywhere; on a college campus, outside the Kentucky Derby, or in the homes of fans watching one of the most fun sporting events: The Kentucky Derby. It’s all about the horses, the people, the hats, the colors, the singing of My Old Kentucky Home and the gathering of family […]
One of my favorite memories is the famous 1986 Masters Tournament. The entire Miller family was vacationing at Amelia Island, FL. A first grandchild, Gloria was 3 months old. I was 8 months pregnant with Lizzy. And triplet Liz was 6 months pregnant with Warren. Our family and friends were gathered around a […]
In our family, College Basketball season is just as important as Football Season. (Well, almost. You don’t have the great tailgating.) But the NCAA Basketball Tournament is one of the most exciting sports event of the year. And fans gather together to watch the games, many participating in Bracketology pools. My sister and brother-in-law, Lucy […]
