Irresistible Almond Biscotti

So, (as the kids say) it’s been a minute since I’ve blogged. There was an Engagement Party, Christmas, Holidays and life has been crazy. But I did want to write about these Biscotti cookies, my hands-down Best Selling cookies (if I was selling them, which I am not). I always

Turkey Soup

Even though I didn’t host Thanksgiving this year, I did get the gift of a turkey carcass from my Mom, with which to make Turkey Soup. While the recipe I use, from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, is very simple, making Turkey Soup is a process. But it’s worth it. First

My Grandmother’s Sausage Stuffing

Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday, hands down. It’s all about delicious food and gratitude- what could be better? Throw in some crisp Fall weather, the Macy’s Day parade and some catch football in the front yard, and the day is perfect. Gathering with family and friends we don’t normally get

Blueberry Nut Granola

I tried this recipe months ago from a Food Blog I follow called Frugal Hausfrau and loved it so much, I’ve made it several times since. It is supposedly Keto-friendly if you make it with monk fruit, but I didn’t have any monk fruit, so I used honey. Also, one

So, this was a definite keeper from my Five-Star Weekend Bookclub Meeting. These roasted nuts are sweet (from maple syrup), savory (from chipotle powder), with a hint of citrus (from orange juice) and a bit of piney herb (from the rosemary). They are glazed to a glossy finish, sticky, sweet

The Best Mango Bread

This is the recipe I made from my recent deluge of mangoes. It calls for nuts and raisins, but you can omit either or both. Dried, chopped mango might be a nice substitute for the raisins if you want to “mango” it up. For the type of nut, I would

Camponata Appetizer Recipe

My sister Kelley made this appetizer for our last Spaghetti Sunday and she makes it a lot. I’ve made it, but it doesn’t turn out as good (maybe because I don’t use enough oil.) There are several advantages to this recipe, which makes a perfect appetizer for a Pasta Dinner.

Blue Glacier Martini

Summer is here! And certain drinks (I’m looking at you Aperol Spritz!) just scream Summer. This one doesn’t necessarily scream summer, but I live in Miami, where it’s an Endless Summer and this citrusy, blue drink is perfect for cooling off after a hot day. They served these Blue Glacier

Peanutty Dumpling Salad

So, I made this Peanutty Dumpling Salad months ago and I can’t get it out of my mind. It’s the perfect Springtime dish and, while I love dumplings in all forms, you have to eat a lot to fill you up. This dish, combines salad and veggies with the dumplings,
