Apple Pie Bread

Oh my goodness! I wish you could have smelled my kitchen when this was in the oven! This is so moist and delicious! The streusel topping is amazing! I wanted to make a quick bread this weekend so I could try out my new Giada De Laurentis bread pan (below). Isn’t it nice? It worked [...]

Corn Bread

I’ve been on a corn bread kick lately. I love to eat it warm with light margarine melted on top! I tweaked a recipe that I had and I’m really happy with how this came out. I love it because it’s not too sweet like some store-bought corn bread. So put on a pot of [...]

Semester at Sea Update

It’s been one week since my son left on his voyage with Semester at Sea. He is scheduled to arrive in Hawaii tomorrow. This is a photo of the MV Explorer. It’s considered a “small” ship. Small enough to be bothered by big waves. This is what Matthew said about the waves: “There are two [...]

All Aboard!

My husband took this photo of my son Matthew this morning in San Diego, CA. This bus was about to bring him to the MV Explorer, the ship that will take him on a voyage around the world. The parents were not allowed to bring their children to the ship because they had to board [...]

The “prep ahead” directions below will make this delicious recipe one of your weeknight favorites. Enjoy! Peppery Roasted Pork Tenderloin 2 lbs. pork tenderloin1 tablespoon Kosher salt1 [...]

I Hate Goodbyes!

I’ve never been able to say goodbye to family without crying and this morning was no exception. My son Matthew left this morning to start his travel abroad program around the world. (see previous post) We had a long hug and a tearful goodbye. (wait…I need another tissue) How is a 20 year old ready [...]

Busy! Busy! Busy!

What a week! My husband left early this morning for a business trip to California and I’ve been helping my college son Matthew get ready for his big trip around the world with Semester at Sea. Matthew will fly out to California this Friday and meet up with my husband. It is very comforting to [...]

Sausage Vegetable Medley

My family loves sausages. There is a pizza restaurant nearby that makes the best homemade sausages. Once in a while, I’ll buy 3 - 4 pounds of fresh homemade sausages from them and freeze some of it to make this recipe or I’ll add the sausages to my spaghetti sauce. I used turkey sausages this [...]

Mohegan Chicken

Have you ever been to Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT? I go a couple times a year. I actually won $800 on a slot machine last year! That was so much fun! Many years ago, I had a chicken dish at Mohegun Sun that was so good. I tried to recreate it as best [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

When it comes to dessert, I LOVE the combination of chocolate and peanut butter! These delicious cookies are soft in the middle and are highly addictive. Next time I’ll add more chopped peanut butter cups because I felt that there wasn’t enough in each cookie. Don’t you love quality control? Sometimes you just have to [...]
