Strawberry Rhubarb Cake: Memories of Nana

This past week, I was invited to partake in a 2021 Bake-Off from Crushed Caramel. It’s a yearly competition, and I was honored to be asked to be a part of it. This year’s theme was “Recipes from your childhood”. I knew which recipe I would enter with. It was a recipe that I remember…

Monday Monday

Happy Monday Everyone. After a Fabulous adventurous weekend with my husband and some time with our adult children, I am feeling a case of the Mondays. Friday evening, my husband Paul and I went to a Winery nearby to listen to a wonderful performer, Andy Cavanaugh, and enjoy a wine slushie and glass of wine….

Easy 2 Bean Tacos

I love taco night!! It’s one of my favorite dinners! I make different types of tacos one day a week, almost weekly, and one of the types I love is the bean taco nights! It’s so easy to make and tasty! This meal is great for nights that don’t require a ton of your time….

Chocolate Bread and another Monday

Happy Monday Everyone!! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Our weekend was full of projects in the front yard, in front of our picket fence and trying to redo the design (landscaping) of the front yard. Next year, we will be redoing a new and improved picket fence, but we wanted to tackle the…

Marvelous Monday

Hello Everyone!! How’s everyone today? Another rainy day here in New England, and with the exception of a ton of fungi growing, ugh, everything does look quite lush in the yard and gardens.

Lunch with a Dear friend

After a long time of being careful and staying away from crowds and too many public places, I was happy to be out to lunch with my friend and food stylist/photographer on my new cookbook, Rachel Cournoyer. We had lunch in a quaint little town nearby in a cute coffee house. It was so nice…

Those Monday Blues…

Happy Monday everyone! It’s been quite gloomy here most of this month and some of last month, with tons of rain and grey skies. It’s been an uncharacteristically cooler summer for the most part. It’s been feeling more like Fall than Summer. Ugh. I need my summer weather to swim in my pool and enjoy…
