Taking out the Trash on a Snow Day

IMG 6556.jpg

I was going to blog this very healthy and delicious stew, but it will have to wait. Today is a snow day and that means cookies. The challenge is to use what you have and see what you can invent. In my house, we call that Snow Day Trash Cookies – maybe not the best name – but the cookies make up for it. …

Cold Weather Camping

This is not news to anyone; it’s been a vey cold start to 2018! That’s been depressing to my dogs who want to walk, but mostly we’ve been happy to watch the birds clustered around the birdfeeders, do a little reading, attempt post holiday cleanup, catch up with friends, and cook warming meals of soup, chili, and hearty casseroles. …

Actually the weather outside has been was fairly frightening. Not cold enough to snow, too rainy for a walk and so it seems like a little Christmas Cheer is in order. This time of year makes me cherish memories of a trip I took with my mom and sister to the Christmas Markets in Germany and Austria. …

I know my mother will be reading this, so I want to give her full credit for teaching me to make beautiful and delicious yeast rolls, but truthfully I don’t always have time. This simple little trick can be a lifesaver, particularly this time of year. …

Make it Soup

This has been a busy week. The book had three events that required lots of cooking, I took dinner to a sick friend and provided Titans snacks. So by yesterday afternoon when a request for lasagna came through, I have to admit that I just wasn’t up to it. …

Beer? Cake? or Better — Chocolate Stout Cake

IMG 5654.jpg

My Mom came to dinner for her birthday last night. That’s a special occasion and I had the birthday dinner menu down, but wanted to make a cake that was just perfect for her. My mom is a fan of anything British. She took students to England on school-sponsored trips for many years. …

The Fall Cookie Jar

I’m not the only one at my house that loves to Throw a Party! Yesterday my son hosted a pumpkin-carving soiree for some of his Halloween loving crowd.

We had a ton of fun carving pumpkins and roasting pumpkin seeds, followed by a yummy dinner of roasted fall vegetables, salad, and grilled steak. …
