New recipes….appetizer and dessert

First things first, the job didn’t work out. I took down the post about it so I wouldn’t be found in a search for that particular business in my area because it’s not fair to them to make it known about their changes. Now, moving right along, because that is exactly what I am doing … Continue reading

Celebration Night!

Today is our 19th wedding anniversary. I have the world’s best husband but then again, I am quite biased. He treats me like a queen and encourages me in every single thing I do to make myself a better person, whether it’s in the role of a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend,chef, and soon-to-be … Continue reading

Trying Tiramisu

Trying Tiramisu

For quite some time, I’ve been making a Tiramisu-themed dessert in some of my classes but I needed a recipe closer to the classic Tiramisu Italy is so famous for.

I am not sure what is happening with tomorrow’s class but I should hear something by this afternoon. In any … Continue reading

Cooking classes and changes

I’m excited about this group of seniors. They were a lot of fun last time and when I mentioned that I had just made pierogis at … Continue reading

Bargains and Biscotti

It happened again. I found a few great bargains while thrift store shopping. I have been searching the two local thrift stores to find some kitchen decorations for the walls only to be blessed by other finds. Yesterday I stopped in one of the thrift stores with Caleb. First we checked out the goods “behind” the … Continue reading

Herbs and plants

Don’t be shocked because I have blogged several times this week but I guess the mood hit me to blog. I have been lamenting over the pitiful state of my one surviving basil plant from the summer that I decided it was time to buy a new plant. Look at this awful sorry state of what … Continue reading
