Tuesday Chatter Weekly – January 16, 2016


Undoubtedly, winter has arrived in Atlanta, Ga. Windy, cold with a chance of wintry mix. Brrr.

Record-setting cold temps, where in December we had record-setting warm temps. Well, let’s not worry about what we can’t control. I say put another log on the fire and let’s brew a new pot of coffee.


You know cold weather makes me think of food. And I mean good food that warms your body, warms your heart, and warms your soul. What are your favorite foods when the temperatures take a dip? What are your favorite warm beverages? I would love your feedback! 😊😊

I am not a creative cook, however, my hubby is very creative. He even makes a nice presentation when he serves a meal. He’s a keeper, for sure.

While I am on the subject of cooking, I can think of none other to feature this week than lynzrealcooking.

Mouthwatering recipes and amazing life stories that she shares will tug at your heartstrings. Lynn is an incredible woman with incredible talent, not only for cooking but writing, as well. Be sure to visit her site

While spending more time inside due to the cold weather, I have been working on my site, attempting to clean it up for the new year. Now, that methinks I am somewhat wiser, I found several items that needed my attention. This task may take a while, but it’s worth every minute of it.

Taking inventory of your site is important because you want your blog to reflect your best efforts along with your hard work.  

This is Tuesday Chatter, a weekly event where you can leave the link to your blog, giving others a chance to appreciate your talents. Here’s the link for the how-tos. Tuesday Chatter

  1. Hot chocolate is my favourite drink when I get cold and my grandmother’s homemade chicken broth with egg noodles is my favourite food. On days when I know I get home late and it’ll be extra cold outside, I plan to make that for dinner to warm me up! 🙂


  2. My favorite hot food for winter is Japanese hot pot (nabe) and eggnog for drinks. 🙂 I’m apparently weird in that I serve eggnog hot…. all recipes I’ve found online say ‘serve cold’… yuck! 😛

  3. You can’t beat a hot chocolate in this weather, especially a mint hot chocolate. I bought two tins home from England with me! Out of interest, how cold does it get in GA?


    • Georgia is fairly mild compared to the Northeast. I live in north Ga, just outside of Atlanta so we do get some ice and snow. With the exception of 2015, we had snow around the holidays for 2 years in a row. We have lived here going on 4 years. This morning it was 19 and now it is 29 and dropping. We are currently under a storm alert – ice and sleet. Two years ago, we had snowmageddon. It hit during rush hour and the weather reports were incorrect. People were trapped for hours on the hwys and children were trapped for hours in school buses. It was a nightmare. Atlanta and other cities in Ga are not sufficiently equipped with equipment to handle extreme ice and snow. With that said, we really enjoy it here because the four seasons are defined but mild.

  4. Oh wait, I saw you before when you shared Lynn’s blog! For some reason your first comment was from a Dad cooking blog site. You must maintain more than one blog. OK Ill give you a follow. 🙂


  5. I love to eat a hearty stew when it’s cold. I also have a sausage, sauerkraut and applesauce casserole that is sooo good. Oh, and a chicken cheese chowder. I gotta go to the grocery store now!
    Hope you don’t get an ice storm. We sometimes get them in SC and it is awful!
