Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins #SundaySupper

March 26, 2017

Today the Sunday Supper tastemakers are displaying citrus recipes.  I absolutely love citrus! It was hard to decide on just one recipe. I frequently use lemons and limes in both sweet and savory dishes. But today I decided to do something a little different and bake with oranges. I love everything about oranges. They are sweet, […]

Prosciutto and Blue Cheese Pear Bites #SundaySupper

February 12, 2017

This week, Sunday Supper is all about fancy appetizers. The Grammys are tonight and the Academy Awards are right around the corner. Truthfully, I am not a big awards show watcher but I will use any excuse to have a party.  I’m always up for inviting friends over and having some cocktails. Many of the parties I […]

I am going to let you in on a little secret today. I started running again but I am not telling my thirteen year- old son. As soon as I am in very good shape, I will challenge him to a one mile run and hopefully will beat him. You might think that’s mean but this […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

March 22, 2015

I am not going to lie to you. These cookies are good but they are not mind blowing enough to take to a party. They are not the kind you would hide from your kids to have late night with a glass of wine.  In fact, I want my kids to eat these cookies for snacks. They […]

Italian Bite Nachos

Are you watching the World Cup? Our house is filled with soccer fans and the games are the only thing on our TV. I have a twelve year old son who just can’t get enough soccer. He plays it, practices it, reads about it and watches it. But you can’t watch the World Cup without snacks right? […]

Summer is finally here! This is the last week of school and I am looking forward to some lazy summer mornings. Summertime means pool time, trips for ice cream, staying up late and of course, plenty of fresh fruit such as strawberries! We missed the boat on strawberry picking this year but there are plenty of juicy […]

I think I made the best salsa ever and it was purely by accident. Maybe not the best ever but one of the best. Have you ever planned to make something but then realized you were out of something? It was snowing. And they hadn’t plowed the roads. So I had to make do with I […]

It’s time for some dirty little secrets. Did I get your attention? I can be really cranky in the morning. Especially in January and February when the weather stinks. Like lately. I mean who wants to get out of bed at 6:30 am when it is 20 degrees out. Ask my husband. He’ll tell you. […]
