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


The Fergusons
