Homemade Cherry Pie Filling

Sometimes, after trying a recipe, I think…well, hello, why haven’t I been making this for years! This Homemade Cherry Pie Filling was exactly that way. I’m not a big pie baker, and when I do bake a pie, it’s usually chocolate with meringue, so I guess that might be why I never really made my […]

French Crepes with Homemade Syrup and Blueberries

We are continuing our trip around the World, hunting for recipes inspired by the Olympic Games. Crepes have been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little girl.

Strawberry Freezer Jam

Since it’s almost Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share with you a little about my Mother, her friends knew her as Marge. My Mother was one of the kindest people I ever knew. She never asked for much just for us to be happy and successful at whatever we did. She was our confidant, cheerleader and friend. […]

Herb and Parmesan Dipping Oil

Whenever we go back to my hometown there is this Italian restuarant that my father likes to take everyone for dinner and one of his favorite items is the bread and olive oil dipping sauce they give you as an appetizer. I’ll have to admit I’ve grown to like it as well, enough to make […]

Grilling a whole butterflied […]

I remember my Dad {an amazing gardener} had an Asparagus bed, when I was growing up. If I remember correctly, it didn’t take much work once the […]
