Have you ever made your own pickles?  It's really pretty easy and it's nice to be able to pull a jar of pickles off the shelf that you've made yourself.  You can make small batches and leave them in the refrigerator, or if you have enough cucumbers, preserve them for l...

We love quiche. It works for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Pair it with a green salad and/or some fruit and you don't need anything else. It comes together quickly and gives me the opportunity to do a little refrigerator clean out.  When I can't think of anything to mak...

This salad will begin to show up regularly around here because it tastes amazing

and because it uses fresh garden food.  Hello summer!  I can eat a big bowl and call it dinner, but usually I'll serve it alongside something cooked on the grill.  It's great with all the p...

The first time I ate these beans, I was dating my husband.  We had them at a cook out at his parent's home.  That was forty years ago!  Is it crazy that I can remember this?  I'm grateful that some things just stick with you- like the love I have for my husband and the...

Yesterday, I asked her,...

How do you feel about lettuce wraps?  Listen, when something tastes this good and is healthy too?  When you can have dinner made in less than thirty minutes?  When what you make at home tastes better than the restaurant version?  Ding! Ding! Ding!  It's a winner in my...

I always thought scones were something you bought at a bakery or if you were lucky, would be served with clotted cream and jam at a scrumptious tea. Oh my yum!  In my mind they were just a little too fancy to make at home. Isn't that silly?

I've since le...

I have oodles of brownie recipes, because I've never met a brownie I didn't like.  So many in fact, that they get their own tab in my recipe binder!  But this particular one has become the recipe I turn to over and over again.  Here's what I love about them.  They're r...

This is my favorite kitchen helper and my favorite banana bread recipe.

 I buy bananas in those bags that have been marked down to $1.59 in the grocery store.  You know the ones, where they put as many "almost too ripe" bananas as they can fit into a paper bag. Usually...
