I’m a sucker for a good breakfast. I love breakfast, and I also love to entertain guests. When I have overnight guests I like to make them a special breakfast. Now, if you know me, you know I like things that LOOK like they took a lot of effort, when in reality they are dead […]

I have the secret for making EVERY vegetable, as long as you are a carnivore, taste better. It is not a very well kept secret, since EVERYONE knows about bacon.  This recipe started out as green bean bundles from a cookbook I borrowed from my mother.  The beans were blanched then slow roasted which left […]

I may be one of the only people who do not like Oreo cookies all that much. I know, I know, EVERYONE like Oreo’s (and if you gave me some I would eat them) but they are not, and never have been, my favorite.  It is the texture of the cookie.  For many the crispness […]

I always carry with me a book I call my ‘Inspiration Book’. This is the place where I jot down ideas, or flavors, so when I get back to my home kitchen I remember what it was, exactly, that inspired me.  This little book has served me well, and it is directly responsible for this […]

Is there anything better than a well made pound cake? Pound cakes are highly satisfying and wonderfully versatile.  I’ve served pound cake for dessert with whipped cream, I’ve served them with fresh berries for breakfast to great acclaim, and nothing beats pound cake for an after work/school snack.   Pound cake can also be the base […]

What happens when you combine breakfast and dessert? Answer: Magic!  I had actually been contemplating the breakfast/dessert idea for a while.  What spurred me into action was the email from the folks at FoodBuzz to let us know that Nature’s Pride would be holding their Bread Ambassador program again.  Nature’s Pride will select a few […]
