Green Berry Bliss Smoothie 2

Green Berry Bliss Smoothie
My poor husband has not been able to shake this winter funk that has been going around! The rest of us have (cross your fingers) recovered but his is just hanging on.   I’m combating this cold and flu season with lots of fruits, vegetables, and antioxidents this year, trying to boost our immune systems as ...

Grilled Peaches

Grilled Peaches
It seems to me that just about this time last year I was posting a bruschetta recipe that looks amazingly similar to this salad.  Its funny but I had completely forgotten about that recipe but started craving this flavor combination as the peaches in the farmers markets and stores started to reach their juicy peak! ...

Firecracker Lemon Ice Cream

Firecracker Lemon Ice Cream
I almost put quotes around “Ice Cream” in the title above.  Not because this isn’t a creamy delicious frozen dessert, homemade, in an ice cream maker, it’s just not quite ice cream.  It’s a tart sweet confection that earns its name “Firecracker,” that and the obvious association with everybody’s favorite homemade ice cream holiday… the ...

Strawberry loves Rhubarb

End of Summer Bruschetta 4

End of Summer Bruschetta
    Sometimes the best laid plans fall apart.  Sometimes everybody gets sick right when you’re going out-of-town.  Sometimes you feel like crud and have a million things to do and no time to cook and don’t feel like turning on the stove.   The best thing to do in those situations  I think, is ...

Crambrosia

Crambrosia
Am I the only one who went to potlucks as a kid? Ate lots of creamy potluck salad/dessert hybrids? I have no idea why they are always called salads but they are certainly more on the dessert end of things. My 13 year old niece came to spend the weekend with us recently and she ...
