Pesto. I like it on Pasta, Sandwiches, as a dip for chips and crusty bread. My funny husband thinks it tastes like Sage Brush . . . but still eats it. It’s delicious on my new favorite Pizza crust – Remember the Jim Lahey recipe I posted. I’m telling you . . . it’s fabulous! […]
Thumbing through The Perfect Finish Cookbook . . . is a thrill for the senses. The Author – Bill Yosses, is the executive pastry chef at the White House. The pictures are amazing and I found myself dog-earing half the book! The Blueberry Angel Muffins stopped me in my tracks. Is it a muffin or cake? […]
For years and years and years, I’ve been making Cream Puffs. For years and years and years, they bake and rise beautifully . . . and then deflate. Not any more . . . I say! Cream Puffs really are very simple to make. They are even easier to eat. It’s all in the slit […]
I have a problem. I buy too many Cookbooks & print off far too many recipes. I really don’t collect anything else but my Cookbook shelves have expanded . . . to non designated Cookbook shelves! One of my favorite books is Down Home with the Neely’s, and I’ve made many of their recipes. They’re […]
Some days. Yes . . . some days are over the top hectic. This recipe is for those some days. It just doesn’t get easier than this. I’m still trying to take care of the ever producing garden, and knee deep in bottling SALSA. This chicken was tender and delicious. I used 1 tsp of […]
Don’t fall over in disbelief. I vowed that no matter what comes today . . . I would make a post! I hope all of you have had a wonderful Christmas & the start of a great New Year. Have I mentioned that we have have had a myriad of events in this household, and […]
Today is Monday . . . and I ate this. Yup, the whole thing! It’s Banana Bread deliciousness and Cream. I blame it all on my husband! Monday is a grueling cleaning day. While cleaning, I kept thinking about something my hubbie said yesterday. Let me Explain. It will take a minute or two. Last […]
I got a couple of emails today asking me . . . “Where have you been?” Gosh, that makes me feel good! Answer: No Where! I just seem to be busy here and there. I did manage to make a fabulous easy dessert to share with you all. Strawberries and Cream . . . […]
I started my day, by running on the treadmill and then a kick butt series of Pilates. Why I ask myself? In two minutes . . . I destroyed all that calorie burning torture my body endured. Today, I let all good sense fly right out the window and made Berry Napoleons. One of my […]
~ HAPPY VALENTINES DAY ~ It’s not often that I make a Chocolate Dessert for my husband. He really doesn’t care for Chocolate! In my mind, Valentines Day is not Valentines Day without a little Chocolate. This light airy creamy dessert is one that he actually enjoys. This is the perfect treat after a big meal, […]
Hi Everyone, I hope that you all had a fantastic Christmas. I know that I sure did! Hopefully you were all able to enjoy a few days off from work, and relax a bit. Christmas is certainly special, but I’m not sure if it’s relaxing… now that I’m thinking about it. We were able to share the joy with […]
