    Have a grape summer

    I love grapes, especially the ones that are very firm and crisp. I don't care for soft squishy ones, even if they taste good. I don't get to eat a lot of grapes because they have too much sugar in them, but a few here and there are allowed. They make such great snacks and additions to all sorts ...

    Exploring Middle Eastern cuisine

    Not too long ago, I finally got brave enough to branch out and explore some new (to me) cuisines, with Middle Eastern being one of them.

Even though I am going to share some favorite recipes with you, I must admit my favorite way of enjoying these peppers is to just eat them fresh, along...

    Sticky buns have their day

    I was browsing around checking to see what national “food days” might be coming up. Seems like just about every day of each month celebrates some type of food or another. February 21 is National Sticky Bun Day and that really caught my attention. I love things such as monkey bread, ...

    Roasty toasty veggies

    I love roasted vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes, different types of squash, parsnips, turnips, beets, rutabaga, onions, mushrooms, all colors of bell peppers, even eggplant and garlic. You can probably roast any of your own favorite vegetables. Throw in some broccoli and cauliflower or brussel...
