During the holiday season, I love to cook big breakfasts. Christmas morning is spent with our family in new pajamas, opening some gifts and having a nice lazy breakfast together. I typically make one savory egg dish and one sweet dish. My family loves waffles and my son cannot get enough of them.  So I created this breakfast and made it […]

Gone are the days where I make boxed mac and cheese. I have nothing against making food from a box but I am glad my son realized there is a world outside of “the box “.  My daughter has been a homemade mac and cheese lover for a long time. As a matter of fact, […]

Did I ever tell you I’m a red sauce snob? Sorry, I’m admitting it now. When it comes to food, I can be a real pain in the you- know- what sometimes. If I go to an Italian restaurant I hardly ever order red sauce. Because I am picky and like my own. I keep batches of red […]

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. […]

Who’s ready for some football? While I am a Giants fan and the rest of my family are Eagles fans (shhhh….don’t tell anybody), none of us will be cheering for our favorite team in the Superbowl.  But that doesn’t mean football is over. We still have some good games to watch and great food to eat. […]

Warning: Although these Brussels sprouts are delicious and you will want to eat the whole bowl, your kitchen will smell awful.   Okay, so light a candle or bake some cookies after you roast […]
