You’ve just been invited to a last minute soiree and don’t want to go empty handed. What to do, what to do? Here’s a quick little hostess gift you can whip up in minutes and, chances are, you’ve got all the ingredients on hand. Not only that, it is seriouslyRead More →

  I will be hard-pressed to convince Tim, who doesn’t particularly like (hmmm, maybe he really dislikes???) cabbage soup, that I really was craving some and that it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Tin Can Lanterns I shared this morning …that required vegetable cans! Seriously … I boughtRead More →

This past weekend our 25 year old “baby” made a bowl of a heavenly Avocado Salsa that was awesome. I said, “See, this is the benefit of allowing the children in the kitchen… they grow up to be great cooks!” This reminded me of a post first published on myRead More →

First off… must say… NOT my grandma’s recipe… but evidently SOMEBODY’s grandma’s recipe 🙂 Strawberry Rhubarb Pie has long been a family favorite. For decades I’ve made it using a standard pie crust. Last week on some internet expedition, I came across this recipe from Food Network…     GRANDMA’S STRAWBERRY-RHUBARB PIERead More →

To see the entire Out of the Block | Ice Cream Cone Cookie Cutter series, including pattern for felt applique block and how to make your own cookie cutters click HERE.  I've tasted a lot of sugar cookies in my days, and I have to say, this is by far my very favorite. What makes it so special… a splash of lemon! And I'm a sucker for lemon. WhenRead More →

Last month I shared a recipe for Kahlua and Butterscotch Liqueur. It has aged for a whopping 30 days and is ready for drinking, I mean gift giving 🙂 Must admit we tried both. Can’t very likely give something away without a little quality testing. Findings… although the Kahlua recipesRead More →

We are trying something new this year… and I must admit I’m a little bit nervous. As a family, we decided that we wanted to simplify Christmas and focus on the joy of being together. So, for the first time ever, the adults are not exchanging gifts. Gulp and Yikes! I amRead More →

It seems like the autumn winds are finally picking up, pushing the last of summer into our memories. It’s a magical time of year, when you can gather pumpkins, watch flocks of geese flying south, and gather bouquets of colored leaves to bring indoors. And what could be better whenRead More →

When it came time to make the dogs their birthday cake, I did an Internet search to find a recipe. I shouldn’t have been surprised, but there were a ton of recipes! Most were baked and frosted. As I was trying to decide which one I was going to make, I had aRead More →

In my kids’ minds, you don’t get to claim a new age on your birthday until you blow out the candles on your cake. Apparently, it is the actual act of blowing out the candles that makes your birthday official. Bug would not let Fairy call herself six years oldRead More →

Every family has their favorite traditional foods they make for Christmas. In Michelle’s house, Christmas breakfast always includes a birthday cake for Baby Jesus. Although pancake men are not a part of our holiday celebration, the children enjoyed them just the same 🙂 In the book Christmas in the BigRead More →

In the book, The Legend of the Poinsettia, by Tomie dePaola… “At home Lucida helped Mama clean their casita-their little house-and pat out the tortillas for their meals.” We did not make our own tortillas, but we used flour tortillas to make “Mock Sopapillas”. Easy and yummy, I can almostRead More →

Christmas is a time for not only making memories but for remembering. Certainly, when we look back on Christmases past, we are sure to conjure up some memories of food. In just about every conceivable celebration, you will find food. Not surprising… food sustains life. Since eating is necessary, even onRead More →

We received 2 recipes for pumpkin bread. When comparing the 2 recipes, they were nearly identical, except one recipe made 1 loaf and the other made 2 loaves. There were also some slight variations in the spices. Neither recipe included a photo, so when I had this THING this week,Read More →

When I received this recipe, I thought, okay, I’m in heaven now. Pumpkin and chocolate chips! These sound so wonderful I can’t wait to try them. But what really got to me, was Hallie’s account of the first time she tried them. How many wonderful memories have food, family and friendsRead More →

  I was absolutely thrilled to see this recipe, shared by Sonia at Fledgling’s Hollow. New to blogging, but certainly not new to baking, not only does Sonia share her recipe for the scones, but gives wonderful directions to cook fresh pumpkins. Enjoy the recipes and make sure you stop by Sonia’s blogRead More →

At the end of October we invited readers to share their favorite pumpkin recipes. Because the markets are overflowing with the fall harvest right now, it makes sense that pumpkin is such a common ingredient in fall cooking. The smell of spicy pumpkin dishes always makes me think of cool autumn days, and of family, friends and theRead More →
