Chocolate Dessert Hummus

Happy New Year! I’m so excited… my awesome hubby gave me a new camera for Christmas to replace the one I’d been using that’s 10 years (or more??) old and starting to be a bit dated in functionality. My new camera has a neat food […]

Chocolate Mint Cookies

Chocolate Mint Cookies

‘Twas the night before Christmas a long time ago, when I was a child and to church I would go. After church was complete, we’d perform the great feat. A holiday meal which would take hours to complete. I, a young girl, with my eyes in pure […]

Mulled Wine Poached Pears

Mulled Wine Poached Pears

I’ve been in the mood for festive desserts that are heavy on flavor but still leave me feeling light on my feet. Fruits are the perfect dessert in this case as you get a bit of sweet decadence but won’t get overly full like you […]

It’s an exciting day…I have plums!!!!  As in plums directly from my neighbor’s plum tree and not from a supermarket.  Holy cannoli are they TASTY!   Tart and lightly sweet, these lovely little stone fruit have been a delightful treat all week.  Since I was graced with a large bucket of them, I just had to make plum […]

So. Tired. Of. Packing. I’m living among mountains of boxes and can’t find anything I want/need at any point of time. Sigh. After this weekend we will be completely moved to the new house and then I will hopefully have some time to organize, organize […]
