Super Simple Shrimp w/Angel Hair

  This is something I make when I don’t really feel like cooking or when I’m running low on time but I still want a solid, healthy meal. I particularly like this recipe because you can change it up really easily by adding different types of vegetables or seasonings. If you want to brighten it…

My Favorite All Butter Pie Crust

  Okay, this crust is my absolute favorite! It is my go-to crust for any sweet or savory dish. I’ve always favored all-butter crusts and thought they were the very best. I have even ventured out and tried other crusts to test my theory. I’ve tried using crusts with shortening, and even half butter-half shortening…

Walnut-Pecan Butter

This was so tasty with my pancakes this morning!! I’m one of those people that puts peanut butter on their pancakes so I figured this would be a nice twist on the usual and a little healthier too. It’s also nice and festive for this time of year and would work well on biscuits, sandwiches or…

Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

I love Bananas, I like them in the morning with yogurt or peanut butter. I eat them with cereal or toast, but for some reason I always happen to have a few left sitting on my counter. Especially when I’m getting tired of eating plain old bananas… the few left over just sit and stare…

Tasty Tuna Melt

I love Tuna Fish. Tuna fillets, cold Tuna Fish with crackers and Tuna salads. You name it, and I’ve made it. Growing up my Mother was a huge Tuna Fish fan, we couldn’t even make ourselves a sandwich without her sniffing it out and asking us to make her one too. When I’m not sure…

Leftover Inspiration

This lovely breakfast was inspired by the mounds of leftovers my In-laws had us bring home after having dinner with them. I’m not complaining by any means…I love when they cook for us, and when we have those great flavors to take home. This time we just had a lot of food and I didn’t…

Delish Bruschetta

This is literally one of those things I make and will eat all Summer long. Especially, since it gives me an excuse to use tomatoes, basil, and garlic from my garden. Its super easy to prepare, and really refreshing. You can use any type of tomato you like, but in this particular version I used…

My Favorite Salmon Steaks

The weather in my area has become quite gorgeous these last few weeks, which is a nice change from the normal rainy Spring weather we’re used to. It almost feels like Summer with these 80 degree days full of sunshine. Lately, ¬†we’ve been working in our yard, getting the garden together, riding our bikes… you…

Dinner for One, Two or More

There are a few instances where I find myself home alone at dinner time and tonight was one of those times. I had been busy all day and I didn’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. However, I knew I didn’t want to eat frozen dinners or fast food (although I’m…
