If my posts lately are any indication, my oven’s been churning out a lot of baked goodies recently. Thanks to my low carb livin’, avoidance and self control is easier said than done! But, my friends who love sampling my sweet treats (and taking...

But first, congratulations to the winner of Wednesday’s giveaway – Philia Kelnhofer! Thank you to all who entered and left me inspired (and hungry) for what to cook next. You’re the best readers ever! Whenever my husband and I have guests stay overnight, early the next morning I’m up...

You all know me best as a foodie, but what you might not also know is, I’m also kind of a techie! We have gadgets and gizmos galore in this house, thanks in large part to my lovable geek of a hubby. But, along...

PumpkinSwirlChocolateBrownies

For the love of ooey-gooey, fluffy soft pumpkin and chocolate deliciousness (truly a marriage made in heaven), you must make these brownies. They are ridiculous. They cross the line. They’re unreasonable. And must be stopped… with a tall glass of milk. Sliding a hot pan...

As a kid starting out on my own after leaving home, I didn’t come away with an overwhelming number of family recipes. Sure, we enjoyed good meatloaves and mashed potatoes, roasted chickens and apple pies, but I was more excited to be able to...

Cheesy Chicken and Potato Chowder

Yesterday I had a sick day. I wasn’t particularly sick, just not feeling my best, and so pushed aside my to-do list and remained in pajamas for the large majority of the day. On a recent Saturday I had spent all day cooking and...
