Make These Cherry Limeade Cupcakes from Scratch

cherry-limeade-cupcakes-700

Cherries and limes go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Yeah?  Maybe?  Okay, I admit it – cherry limeade isn’t usually the first thing you think of when someone says cherry or lime.  However, the two flavors are dynamite together.  The lime freshens the cherry and gives it a little zip, while the cherry sweetens […]

Delicious Fig and Port Wine Blintzes Recipe

Fig and Port Wine Blintzes-wm

The first time I had blintzes, I was 9 or 10.  To say the least, I was not really a fan.  I think I was expecting something like cheesecake in a pancake.  Now that I’m (much) older, I can enjoy the subtleties and nuances of the flavors, like in these Fig and Port Wine Blintzes […]

Broccoli and Feta Pesto Pasta

broccoli-and-feta-pesto-pasta-wm

My parents always encouraged me to try different foods.  If I didn’t like it, I didn’t have to eat it, but they were all for food experimentation.  That is one of the things that I am grateful for. Because of this, I have eclectic food tastes.  Pesto, and feta cheese, have been among my favorites, […]

Quick and Painless Reuben Sandwich Recipe

quick-and-easy-reuben-sandwich

What do you do with leftover corned beef?  You make Reuben sandwiches! Corned beef is one of my favorite traditions of St Patrick’s Day. Cooking that all day long – or worse, waiting for it to be finished cooking when you’re at someone else’s house! It’s an arduous process, maybe that’s why we only do […]

Is My Drinking Water Safe?

Is-my-tap-water-safe

One of my goals for 2015 was to cut back on soda. Now, I had never really been much of a soda drinker for most of my life. I usually found it a little too sweet and a little too carbonated. I really only liked fruit flavored sodas – like orange or pineapple – and […]

Cocktails are great, but what do you do when it’s fuh-rezing cold outside? I mean, it’s going to be a balmy 19 degrees today, do I really want a cold cocktail? HECK NO! I want something that’s going to warm me up, from the inside out. Times like this is when a Hot Toddy really […]

Caramel turtle brownies are a perfectly indulgent treat that’s easy to make. One of the things I love is a really good treat. Normally, I like to go for baked goods.
