Earlier this month, my cousin hosted a luncheon for her sister to celebrate her soon-to-be-born second child. It was a nice, small gathering of family and a few close friends. My cousin put together a great spread of veggie sandwiches, chicken clubs and egg salad sandwiches, along with several delicious salads and desserts. But the […]

NOTE: Updated with new photos and slight edit on the recipe on 5/2/2011 I am not apologizing for this. I thought I would come on here and tell you how I rarely use prepared anything. And then I would discuss how I love starting our meals from fresh, whole ingredients and seeing then mix and […]

“Hun, are you done with this bread?” That’s the kind of thing that Shawn might say to me while the leftover, slightly stale bread dangles inches from the trash heap . . . but not any longer. He’s now an official homemade crouton convert. I buy bread at the farmer’s market here every weekend. We […]

It’s taken me WEEKS to get this post up. See, I made some garlic bread on the fly one night. It came out perfectly. I wrote down the recipe. The problem? I didn’t take a photo. So, I made it again. However, I got distracted and burned the heck out of it. We ate it […]

After giving birth to my daughter last month, I was in the hospital for several days. Thank goodness for magazines because I would have been bored out of my head – I only had a temperamental television and a newborn to keep me company over the long days (and sleepless nights). And yes, she is […]

Okay, yes. I was supposed to post this two days ago . . . but things got busy. My apologies. The good news is that this week’s Sunday Breakfasts will appear early — on Saturday instead. I knew this Sunday would be a busy one so I wanted a good “on the go” breakfast. These […]

I was much more daring this week with my breakfast. We had Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon, hash browns, a cheddar omelet split between Will and Shawn, and French toast. Talk about carb overload. Secret of making good breakfast #1: Lower the temperature on the burner! You would think I already knew this, but the […]

These days, carbs are the only thing sustaining me . . . they keep me full without upsetting my stomach (and that is quite a feat, believe me). And there is something about springtime that really makes me want to make my own breads. (It could also be yeast envy over the delicious pizzas that […]
