Sweet Potato & Bean Stew

Sweet Potato & Bean Stew

As many have previously read, I recently began a new day job.  All the new work things are challenging enough, then add a new city, a new life, new kitchen, new apt.  Yikes!  I have figured my way out of stress at the end of the day is my Crock Pot.  I can make just […]

Brie & Pancetta Omelet

Ahh brie, how I love thee.  That sentence is so corny but I couldn’t help it.  I love brie!  Nothing makes me happier than a nice cheese plate with some brie.  This recipe is really pungent and flavorful.  You can substitute brie for another soft cheese if you are not a fan. But really, give […]

Orange Streusel Coffee Cake

Orange Streusel Coffee Cake

This is a delicious alternative to a cinnamon sugar traditional coffee cake.  I serve this at my afternoon tea parties with my girlfriends (what you don’t have them?) or make it for my friends at the office.  It travels well if you are in need of a cake to take to an ill friend or […]

Overnight Egg Casserole

Overnight Egg Casserole

Several of you have been writing, “Hey Amy!  We need more breakfast ideas.”  I hear you loud and clear!  I too need a few more breakfast ideas.  Recently I read that we should eat like Kings at breakfast, a prince at lunch and a pauper at supper.  To me, that is rearranging everything I have […]
