Good Frying Pan

Good Frying Pan

Everything we create for our families and friends must be delicious and lovely in presentation, right?  We buy the freshest ingredients to create masterpieces but do we always use the best tools in which to create?  I take stock in my tools twice a year.  I replace those that have seen better days and I […]

Raspberry Pineapple Punch

Raspberry Pineapple Punch

I am feeling like having a get together.  My intentions are not to have too many people with too many dishes but I know who I am and that will certainly change.  Every list will grow.  My guest list, my menu and my plans will get larger with each passing day so I might as […]

Valentines Love

Valentines Love

Happy St. Valentine’s Day to all!  Yes, yes, some may say it’s a Hallmark Holiday, created to make each of us spend additional dollars for no good reason.  I believe it’s a day to show your nearest and dearest how much you love them.  It doesn’t require a trip to the jewelers or the florist […]

Breaded Bacon

Breaded Bacon

Mmmmmm.  Bacon.  What could be better than bacon than breaded bacon?  Breaded bacon you make in the oven!  I love this dish for an alternative to breakfast bacon but it’s also really delicious tossed in your mealtime salad.  I have yet to put it on a club sandwich but somehow I think it would be […]

Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary

Hands up, who is slightly hungover from last night’s football festivities?  What a game!  Whether you were celebrating or nursing your broken heart, many of you have a hangover this morning.  I support a run to McDonald’s, right Lisa?, or make this Bloody Mary before you head out today.  Even if you are going to […]
