Roasted Asparagus Omelet

Roasted Asparagus Omelet

Now that Spring is here I find myself cooking asparagus in everything.  It’s the only time of year that I’ll eat it.  Asparagus out of season doesn’t appeal to me.  The stalks are skinny and shrivelled, and the taste is lackluster. What’s funny is I’m not usually like that when it comes to produce. If it’s […]

Carb Buster Breakfast

This was the post I planned to submit for Valentine’s Day, but forgot to click the Publish button. Ooops.  Better late than never. With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, I thought I’d share a love story. Once upon a time, it was a cold winter’s day, and a third of an inch of […]

Red Velvet Muffins

Red Velvet Muffins

Last Saturday I went to the grocery  store for cereal and milk, and  left inspired to make red velvet muffins. When I woke that morning, I wasn’t thinking about red velvet muffins, but I saw the bakery display featuring red velvet muffins and I just had to try one. However, I couldn’t bring myself to […]

French Apple Cake

French Apple Cake

Last Friday I started Dr. Oz’s 3-Day cleanse, and I have to say it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be–at first. Usually I’ll fast at the beginning of the year to clean out my system from all the lovely meals and treats that I enjoyed over the quarter-long celebration season–which begins […]

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini is one of those vegetables that’s always around. You can find it at any farm stand, in every supermarket and probably in your neighbor’s backyard. It’s so versatile you can use it to make dinner or dessert. Zucchini bread is a popular way to enjoy this bountiful vegetable. This bread is moist with a […]

Honey Granola

Honey Granola

I’ve struggled with making granola for years. It was either too soggy or too dry.  Then it was too sweet or not sweet enough. I love granola but I only buy it if I have a coupon and it’s on sale. Otherwise, I’d end up with a box “filled” with just 1 cup of granola for […]

Oven-Roasted Bacon

Oven-Roasted Bacon

I am constantly telling my sons not to drink juice around the computer. Everyday I fuss, “This computer is not a toy.  You need to pay attention to what you’re doing…” Blah! Blah! Blah! While I was preparing my next post, I spilled Pepsi on my laptop and my screen turned black. Grrr!!! Of course, I […]

Apricot Orange Marmalade

Apricot Orange Marmalade

Whernever I’m in New York I love to visit Sarabeth’s Bakery in Chelsae Market. This quaint specialty foods shop offers some of the best food in the city from apple cinnamon french toast to grilled smoked mozzarella sandwiches. However, my favorite food find at Sarabeth’s is the orange-apricot marmalade. I wasn’t a fan of orange marmalade […]

Simple Fruit Salad

Simple Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is a favorite around my house.  It’s easy to make and uses some of the most common fruit you can find in the market all year long.  Now that it’s summer the fruit is fragrant and tastes fantastic.  My favorite produce market is overflowing with local seasonal fruit and it’s all on sale. […]

Red Velvet Waffles with Maple Cream Cheese Drizzle

Red Velvet Waffles with Maple Cream Cheese Drizzle

This week I’ve had several people ask me what I’m doing for Mother’s Day, and I can honestly say I haven’t given it much thought.  It’s not that I don’t appreciate this national holiday devoted to the celebration of mothers, it’s that I enacted a quarterly Mother’s Day a couple of years ago in my […]
