Link Up! The Theme is…Super Bowl Party Food!

Jalapeno Poppers, Jan.29 109

Photo Credit It just wasn’t in the cards.  Our Tom Brady and the Patriots didn’t make it to the Super Bowl this year.  Did your team make it?  Who are you rooting for…the Pittsburgh Steelers or Green Bay Packers?  Are you having a Super Bowl Party at your house?  To be perfectly honest, I’m not […]

Link Up! The Theme is…Slow Cooker Recipes!


My poor slow cooker has not seen the light of day in a while!  I have really neglected it this winter!  It’s not because I don’t like using it, I’ve just been busy testing out other kinds of recipes and I actually don’t have a ton of tried and true slow cooker recipes.  I have […]

Link Up! The Theme is…Christmas Goodies!

Dec.6part2 004

Can you believe Christmas is next week?  Yikes!  I’m not ready!  Are you?  I did a lot of baking this weekend and not enough Christmas shopping. In case you still need a few ideas for Christmas goodies, I thought we all could share some of our favorites.  Here are a few of my recipes that […]

Link Up! The Theme is…Soup!


Truth be told, I’m not a big soup person.  I enjoy it when I’m at a restaurant, but I don’t make it much at home.  I don’t know why.  Maybe I feel like it’s not substantial enough for the guys in my house.  Or maybe it’s because I know that Andrew will turn his nose […]

Link Up! The Theme is…Thanksgiving!


Hey everyone, Thanksgiving is coming way too fast for me.  I’ve been sick for a few weeks and feel so unorganized this year.  I just can’t seem to shake this darn chest cold!  I need to get this house in shape for company next week.  I’ll be hosting Thanksgiving dinner for about 15 people.  Luckily, […]

Link Up! The Theme is…Apples!


Have you gone apple-picking yet?   I went to Lanni Orchards last Saturday!  I thought it would be fun to go with someone.  But you know what?  After a stressful, hectic week last week, I thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful, quiet orchard all by myself!  I soaked in the sunshine and enjoyed being outdoors so much it […]

Blueberry Muffins

jam July 069

  Have you picked your own blueberries this summer?  I picked 3 quarts at Lanni’s Orchard 2 weeks ago.  Picking blueberries with my friend Silvia seemed like such a luxury.  I’m so used to having a rigid schedule when I’m teaching or having a million things to do at home (including blogging).  I found it […]

Link Up! The Theme is…Seafood!

I crave seafood in the summer time.  Do you?  When we go to the beach (which is about 90 minutes away) we often get fried seafood at Brown’s on our way home in Seabrook, NH.  Have you ever been there?  This is their menu.  I love the tradition of a fun day at the beach […]

Link Up! The Theme is…Sandwiches!

Do you have a sandwich recipe that you’d like to share?  Link to your sandwich blog post below by clicking on the “Add Your Link” button.  Add the name of your recipe and link to […]
