on July 22nd 2014

I clipped this recipe from a Country Home magazine back in 2009 and unlike lots of recipes I clip out, I actually tried this one and fell in love!  I feel like a list is warranted here, of what I love so much, so here it is:

it’s home made, from scratch
it has strong brewed coffee …

Pumpkin Fig Crunch Bread

Posted in - Breakfast & Pumpkin & Recipes
on July 22nd 2014

The fig is a mystery to me.  Growing up I ate Fig Newtons, the most random cookie a kid could eat.  And is it really a cookie?  What’s a fig, you ask, as your munching your Fig Newton.  And who is Newton?  Why figs?  You hear about fig trees in the Bible.  The leaves, the …

White Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

on July 19th 2014

When I need to feed a crowd of people a trifle is always a good way to go.  Most of my people have tried my Death by Chocolate and Fruit Trifle, so I thought it would be wise to try something a bit different, you know, launch into deeper waters!  But not too deep!  After …

Stuffed Chiles with Spinach & Rice

on July 18th 2014

I love chiles.  I mean really, they make everything taste better whether it be pasta dishes, scrambled eggs, various Mexican foods, and even pizza.  I love ‘em!  And I love chile rellenos but the batter on them is fattening and usually thick and soggy, which is a total drag, so I like to make stuffed …

There’s nothing better than fried bread!

When we visit Santa Fe, New Mexico one of our favorite foods besides the hatch green chili, are the sopapillas!  Basically they are fried pillows of bread.   Giant sopapillas are served hot and fresh on tables in restaurants all across New Mexico, drizzled with sweet honey that resides right …

So figs are in season right now, and a short season it is.  I always seems to miss the boat on fig season, so the other day when I was in Trader Joes, I saw some luscious figs and had to get them.  Here’s my newest pizza recipe using those figs and I have …

Turkey Vegetable Ragu

Not much is more satisfying than pasta.  Pasta and meat.  Better yet, pasta, meat and veggies!  This recipe seriously, is so quick and easy, and it’s a real no-brainer.  I have to say though, if you’re going to get caught using sauce from a jar, make it a good one.  Trader Joe’s has a nice …

Stuffed Burgers

on May 26th 2014

It’s summer which means it’s grill time and burgers are the best for summer grilling and entertaining.  I have made stuffed burgers for years, but I recently was turned onto this burger stuffer thingy, by girl Cindy.

It is not necessary to have one of these to make stuffed burgers, but it was fun!

So you’ll …

Couscous

on May 26th 2014

Have you had couscous?  I love it.  It’s actually made from semolina flour, like pasta.  Husband isn’t crazy about it and honestly I can’t figure out why, but I make it anyway because I adore it!  So it’s pretty much a blank canvas to whatever you like to put in it and, you can serve …
