Dagwood Sandwiches

Contributing Writer Vicki McGraw Elegant Edibles Catering I am not a morning person, but my mornings are made bearable by the presence of my Kuerig coffee maker and the arrival of my morning paper. My day always goes better when it has started caffeinated and informed. While I always read the paper cover to cover, […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Contributing Writer Vicki McGraw Elegant Edibles Catering What? I’m a little early in that statement, you say? Well, since this is my week to pen this article, I figured I would allow myself the opportunity to be the first to wish you a Happy St Patty’s Day! I feel justified in letting the holiday linger […]

Thaw Out with Soup!

Contributing Writer Vicki McGraw Elegant Edibles Catering   Again with the weather…how crazy has it been? Really cold, unusually snowy, and did I mention really cold? Wow!

Breakfast To Go!

Pumpkin Cheesecake
