Every year regardless of what I am assigned to bring to Thanksgiving I will always bring a small dish of Carrot Casserole. If you search this recipe online you will find all sorts of variations from ones that use condensed soup, cubed American cheese or even Cheese Whiz, yes Cheeze Whiz. Its a dish Continue Reading
I have been seeing people sharing recipes on Pinterest for mini cinnamon rolls lately, maybe its a back to school thing. I know one thing is common in all of these recipes, they use refrigerated dough. I decided to give them a try and enlisted the help of my six year old daughter Ava. I used Continue Reading
I have had an overwhelming desire to make comfort foods lately. I know why. Cooking helps me to relax and reminds me of when I was a kid, my mom made everything from scratch. One thing we loved on the weekends was a tuna sandwich. There were no tuna kits or local Subways if you wanted tuna you Continue Reading

Last week on Valentine's Day I decided to break out of my comfort zone and attempt something new for dinner, homemade pasta.

As promised here is the recipe for Martha’s Pear Crostata from her book Martha’s Entertaining. I got to watch Martha make this first hand with Everyday Food editor Sarah Carey during her book signing/cooking demonstration last month. This is a free form tart that uses 3 simple ingredients along with Martha’s Tart Dough (recipe below). I highly recommend that you find sanding sugar, it makes all the difference in the world.

Crispix Mix needs to come with a warning label. You'll keep eating it even if you aren't hungry. Crunch factor is off the charts. Its like caramel corn meets crack cocaine. Kidding. I don't like to name my holiday snacks after street drugs, "Here kids have some Christmas Crack." No thanks. White Trash Continue Reading

As I thumbed through my new Macy's Thanksgiving and Holiday Cookbook I came across an updated version of Chex Mix that called for roasted pepitas and chopped stuffed olives. They call it Chef's Mix Continue Reading
