    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...

    Holiday breads to give or keep

    In my family, Christmas and Easter were (are) the two most traditional times of the year when we love to make holiday breads. They smell great while baking, the warmth of the kitchen adds to the cozy feeling, and of course the flavor of a fresh-baked bread, maybe along with a cup of tea, coffee ...

    Some holiday go-alongs

    Christmas is coming, and that's not news for any of us, but it's never too soon to start planning your festive meal. For me, coming up with main dish ideas is a lot easier than it is with side dishes. That might be because there are a lot more options for sides, and I have a harder time choosing...

    Holiday candy, anyone?

    No doubt about it, I just LOVE homemade candy (not that I am apt to turn down store-bought candy).

    Cornbread stuffing, anyone?

    I love cornbread! I don’t even care if it isn’t as healthful as whole-grain or kale or whatever else. It just tastes great and is one of America’s favorite comfort foods. I even love to use it in turkey stuffing recipes. This is a great time of year for such things, as it is...

    Pumpkin treats

    If you love pumpkins you can cook with, then get that apron on and let’s start a fire under the cauldron.

    Savoring the sweet smell and taste of home made biscuits

    I like to eat with my hands (when it's appropriate). There's just something so primal about getting my mitts on a grilled drumstick, ribs, a hamburger or hot dog, corn-on-the-cob and French fries. So, it's no wonder that a freshly-baked, cinnamon-sweet sticky bread that you pull apart with your ...
