Skip this drivel and take me to the recipes!


Welcome to our family cookbook. We're not into taking fancy pictures or doing colorful websites. We are just into food: cooking it and eating it. These are recipes that we have created, adapted or received from friends. Most of all they are recipes that we love. We hope you will love them, too.

You should visit the About Us page. It includes our oldest family recipe from Missouri Ann Ferguson, grandmother of J. Carl Ferguson, Jr., in her own handwriting.

By the way, Uncle Dave's Husky Treats are the best "Rice Krispie Treats" you have ever had. Buy them at

Recipe of the Day

1 1/2 T unsalted butter
6 scallions
2 ribs celery
2 cups frozen corn kernels ( about one 10-ounce package) or 3 large ears of fresh corn
4 cups milk
1/2 cup jarred roasted red peppers or whole pimientos
1/2 pound jumbo lump crab meat
8 sprigs Italian parsley
1/3 cup dry sherry
Salt and fresh pepper to taste

Put butter in a deep, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Trim scallions and celery and cut each crosswise into 4 pieces. Put in food processor and pulse until just chopped. Add to skillet, raise the heat to high, stir, and cook for 2 minutes or until barely softened.
If using frozen corn, empty box into colander and let hot tap water run over the corn for 1 or 2 minutes, until defrosted. If using fresh corn, husk corn and cut off kernels.
Add corn to skillet and stir. Add the milk. Chop the roasted peppers and add to skillet. Stir, cover and bring to just a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring several times. Add the crab and stir.
Chop the parsley and add to skillet along with the sherry, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Taste, adjust seasonings and serve.
