I love breakfast and brunch foods. I think it’s because I really like mornings. And a proper hot breakfast that includes eggs is the way I prefer to start my day. Fritattas are a go-to favorite. It’s like a baked omelette or a crustless quiche and very portable so if I make it ahead, I have a delightful breakfast option that I can simply heat and
I have something to tell you. It’s kinda sort of a big deal. Well, if you like eating carbs and breakfast the way I do, then it’s a huge deal. I love breakfast and brunch food and usually I will have my savory (sausages, eggs) and my sweet (pancakes, french toast) all at the same time, that’s what makes it complete. It’s all about balance.
Winter is here and soup is needed. I’m talking about warm and hearty soups. Yes, we need bowls full of flavor and love, sweetness and salt and goodness. Oh look! Here’s one. I kept playing with it until I got it just right for you. We had to eat a few test pots. It’s cool, we don’t mind. Someone has to do it. Have I
I think everything is better from scratch. I know, I know it’s more time consuming but um…I’d argue it’s worth the wait and the effort. This applesauce is superb.

They were on sale, the shiitakes. The baby bellas were too. I had to buy them, two pints of mushrooms. The problem is…I’m alone in my affection for mushrooms around here. This left me with a lot of mushrooms and not even a little bit of help eating them. I figured I should figure something out. And I did: Pinterest. That’s where I saw a
When I walked into the house this evening, I had the baby in her carrier hanging from my forearm. A breast pump and my purse were draped over my left shoulder and my lunch box and her baby bag over the right shoulder. I was so grateful to smell dinner. I’d forgotten about the genius move I made this morning by tossing some drumsticks and
Why does something so wrong feel so right? I’m talking about eating garlic here, ya’ll. It’s something we all enjoy. That tangy punch of flavor is just so good when it hits your tongue. But it is also the worst stench to have lingering on your breath. That’s not going to stop me, though. I put it in almost everything I cook. It livens these dishes
I really like Italian food. According to my mother it’s always been that way. In her womb, I demanded it. When she was pregnant with me, she said, she craved anything with pasta and tomatoes. I believe her. I like tomatoes hot, cold, sliced, diced, stewed, sauced, fried or jammed. They’re comfort food for me. Therefore, I like the Olive Garden. I affectionately refer to
