    Love those strawberries

    I have been pleasantly surprised (so far) with the taste of the fresh strawberries I have been buying at grocery stores. There were a couple of times when they had the dreaded green shoulders that usually indicate they are not very sweet, but other than that, I have been blessed with some very tasty...

    When everyone’s Irish

    I was pleased to discover that in my family history, I have some Irish (as well as Scottish) descendents, on my mom’s side of the family. They go way back, but it’s just enough to give me some roots to celebrate. One day I plan to visit Ireland, and I bet I head straight for the food...

    Those tasty jalapenos

    Just about every time I go grocery shopping, whether it be at a regular store or a farmers market, I just have to get a few fresh jalapeno peppers. 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...

    Watch the big game with a bowl of chili

    Super Bowl 2015 is coming up on Feb. 1, and if you’re a football fan, you may be considering hosting a gathering of friends and family for that day. But even if you do not have any interest in football, you can still enjoy a bowl of chili, not only on Feb. 1, but on any day.

    Pot pies to warm your tummy during these freezing evenings

    Each New Year, at least in our part of the world, is accompanied by cold weather. That's when I really appreciate a warm kitchen. If you are hungry for some hearty, cold-weather meals, I hope you find at least one recipe today that you will cut out and save, with plans to make for a winter supper...

    Roll out a wheel of Brie

    Once upon a time, I did not like the soft cheese known as Brie. Or rather, I thought I didn't like it, until I truly gave it a fair chance. Then I was pleasantly surprised at the earthy, almost nutty, flavor. If you are a fan of this great cheese, too, perhaps you will find a recipe here that you...

    Fun foods are popping out during the holiday season

    It's December, there’s a chill in the air and leaves are falling. This time of year finds me busy in the kitchen, baking and cooking holiday goodies to stash in the freezer until Christmas. My Italian Nana spent weeks preparing breads, cookies and candies every year, and she gave the most...
