The holidays have officially arrived, and I’m in the mood for something both naughty and nice! It is also time for another Project Food Blog Challenge.  Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much for helping me get this far!  I never imagined I would be participating in Challenge 8, and I am humbled […]

Christmas Cookie Round-up – Part 2

Thursday, November 25, 2010

6 Comments

Last year I gave you all a round-up of cookies perfect for the holiday season … and I plan to do the same again this year!  I mean, what is better than contemplating cookies to help you get over your turkey hang-over? Next week I will be posting my entry for Challenge 8 of Project […]

Turkey and Mushroom Soup

Monday, November 22, 2010

12 Comments

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the left-overs. With as much as we cook it’s never a surprise that we can’t eat it all, which is fine by me.  I love a breakfast of cornbread stuffing and turkey before I start putting up my Christmas decorations.  Usually we have so much left over […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Casserole

Monday, November 15, 2010

I love nothing more than a creamy, cheesy casserole. When you strike the right balance between healthy vegetables and cheesy sauce it is a thing of beauty.  Butternut squash is my favorite winter squash.  With a mild, slightly sweet flavor it is perfect for roasting, blending into soups, and baking into casseroles.  The mild flavor […]

Cinnamon Crepes with Spiced Pumpkin Mousse and Graham Crumble

Monday, November 8, 2010

When Casey from Tastestopping approached me about participating in the November Kitchen Play event, how could I say no? She asked me to deconstruct the classic pumpkin pie using Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin from Nestlé Kitchens*.  Canned pumpkin is a very versatile ingredient and is a pantry staple for me year round.  It can stand […]

I am exhausted. Project Food Blog has been, and continues to be, intense, I’ve had friends in from out of the country, I have four family birthdays coming up, and I am still working three part-time jobs.  On top of it all looms the specter of Thanksgiving and all the preparation that entails.  I am […]

Bacon Dressed Green Beans

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 […]

Crab Cake Dip

22 Comments

I am not a big fan of crab in a general sense.  In fact I am not a fan of shellfish overall. That said, I love, and have always loved, crab cakes.  I like the mix of flavors, the different textures, and I find the creaminess of the crab mixture hard to resist.  So, in […]

Spiced Chocolate Crinkles

There is something magic about a soft, chewy chocolate cookie. Crinkle cookies are an attractive addition to any platter of cookies.  I have a recipe that was given to me by a friend long ago which is lovely on its own, but you know me and my propensity to tinker.  Inspired by my Chocolate Spice […]
