It is of my belief that all good savory recipes start out with garlic (and onions, for that matter). I don’t know, it’s like if the kitchen doesn’t wreak when I’m done cooking, I just haven’t accomplished my job properly.

It’s Zippy Tip Tuesday!
A few months ago, my S.O. and I had a rather humorous conversation involving the word “profiteroles” . I was making a batch one evening; and well, I guess you could say there was a wee bit of some miscommunication! To read about it, [...]

My heart is filled with gratitude right now. Many of you read about my aunt and her “Easter feast” a couple of weeks ago. (If you missed the post, it is here: Easter Egg Nest Centerpiece.) Little did I know how close I came to [...]

I learned something new this week.
I had been baking bread the last month or so, and sometimes the yeast didn’t activate. I couldn’t figure out why. I knew the date on the yeast was good. I even went out and bought new yeast, [...]

My friend Bud, our very special spud, is going to help me introduce my recipe for today. While some people discover zucchini shaped like Elvis, or peppers shaped like Oscar the Grouch, we found Bud in Dad’s garden.
Bud’s become a regular member [...]
