I love a good Sugar Cookie. You know . . . the kind that stays soft . . . yet chewy for days. I think I’ve tried hundreds of recipes over the years, but I’ve never tried this recipe until now.  The words Almond Paste jumped off the page of my Taste of Home Magazine, and into my […]

Some like it hot . . . Some like it cold . . . Some like it in the pot . . . 9 days old! I just prefer mine mild to medium. However, if you like it HOT, just leave the seeds in! My lack of posting lately, has to do with Tomatoes . […]

Plums . . . dropping everywhere! What to do, what to do? It is October 10th, and we are still picking plums in our backyard. That is unheard of in Idaho . . . at least I think it is! We really don’t eat very much jam in this house, and I’ve already made lots […]

 Don’t you think that fall screams Caramel Apples? I don’t make these often, because I can’t resist eating them. This caramel recipe is a long time family favorite. I promise you . . . Once you make homemade Caramel, you’ll never unwrap a store bought caramel again.  To be honest, I’ve never dipped the bottom of a Caramel Apple in […]

My good husband is quite used to me cooking, baking . . . and messing up the kitchen. I believe that I’ve mentioned many, many times that he really doesn’t care for sweets. Ugggg. Yesterday, I made his favorite banana bread again – In his mind, it doesn’t fall in the category of Sweets. Him:  “Have […]

Fall is here, in all it’s glory . . . although we are in the 80’s today. That is very unusual for Idaho! I’m not complaining though – I love fall. I love the leaves falling from the trees, the smells of harvest and the abundance from our gardens. I’ve been anxious to try a new Cobbler […]

Oh . . . Rhodes Rolls . . . I think I love you! Seriously, they make life really easy. I will be blunt though – They are not as good as my own homemade rolls – but close. Rhodes rolls comes up with fabulous ways to use their dough. When I saw their idea for […]

Did you know that you can almost remove a toe with your food processor? Oh Yes you can! I almost did.  It hurts. I’d post a picture of my left foot, but since this is a food blog . . . I won’t do that to you.  I keep the food processor on a shelf […]

I love leftovers, especially leftover Chicken Breasts.  There are such a variety of meals you can create with Chicken.  We had a yummy dinner tonight, and it was fast and easy.  When you start with Puff Pastry, you simply can’t mess it up.  If you like pot pies, then you will like this meal as well.  You […]

I received a nice email today from someone who asked, “Did you fall off the face of the Earth!” Nope. I’m still here . . . just slow. I’m truly a home-body, but lately I’ve just felt like shopping!  Oh Dear, this is not good.  Staying home is the better alternative. Why you ask? You […]

Happy Labor Day! As for this household, we did labor. I cleaned house and tended to the garden, and my hubbie is waist high in grain! The farmers are hard at work this time of year, and hopefully the weather will be cooperative. I put my square pan to work again, and made these coco-nutty, […]
