  • My Choice and My Recipe for Happiness

    My Choice and My Recipe for Happiness

    My Happiness is mine to choose. And as overwhelming as that seems in choosing what that looks like, I’d rather the chance to vote. So I’ve embarked to rewrite my life script and reprogram my thoughts about me and my life that apparently hadn’t been working for me for a long time. They didn’t have […]

  • The Recipe for a Solid Self

    The Recipe for a Solid Self

    So many how to be happy books flood the market making happiness almost seem like a product people are selling that is too good to be true. I can say Happiness is all it’s cracked up to be but it’s also a very personal journey, not one anyone can magically give you. And I’m sure […]

  • A Warm Salad?

    A Warm Salad?

    This is a republication of an old favorite from 2012. Hope you feel inspired to cook from it. I can always use some inspiration. I’d promised to pass along my recipe for a yummy warm salad with garbanzo beans (aka chick peas), orange zest, tomatoes, and salmon to my friend. Having pulled the recipe out […]

  • Making Fresh Pasta for the Fresh Tomato Sauce

    Making Fresh Pasta for the Fresh Tomato Sauce

    Usually in August every year, when the tomatoes begin to stack up, I suddenly need to make tomato sauce. I roasted the cherry and grape tomatoes and added them into the sauce for a twist. It was so sweet I had to add a little rice wine vinegar to bring back some acidity. And since […]

  • Faidley’s Crab Cake Recipe

    We live on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with the Atlantic Ocean to our East and the Chesapeake Bay to our West. Both my husband and I grew up in rowhouses in Baltimore eating steamed crabs at picnic tables covered with newspapers and the sound of wooden mallets whacking the claws and people spitting out shells. We’re […]

  • Homemade Granola

    Homemade Granola

    These days, watching our food means 90% of the time, I’m abstaining from sugar and white flour. Most store-bought cereals (save shredded wheat) aren’t really a good choice then. Granola is great but store brands are either sugar loaded or too expensive. I have found a fabulous recipe for homemade granola and make this recipe […]

  • Saigon Noodle Salad

    Saigon Noodle Salad

    When I lived in Baltimore, I primarily was employed in the restaurant business. I did clean houses as well but there was a lot of restaurants positions on my resume. When I left my employment at the Cafe Hon, I went up the street to a small new cafe called the Golden West Cafe. And […]

  • Apple Cheddar Scones

    Apple Cheddar Scones

    I leave you this week with another buttermilk made recipe for Apple Cheddar scones. This apparently came from a long ago tossed Cottage Living magazine. I found the recipe just as my cut magazine one looks still on My recipes.com here where you can print it out. They are basically buttermilk biscuits with grated cheese […]

  • “Economy” Beef Stroganoff

    This is the recipe for one of the many fabulous meals I received from my friends while I was baby befuddled. And let me tell you, if you remember this old school favorite, you won’t be disappointed. It’s creamy and chunky and fab. Thank Nancy Sawyer for this. Economy Beef Stroganoff from the Betty Crocker […]

  • When the Recipes Need to Go

    I have issues with stuff that goes missing. I eventually found my expired passport. I decided my pink camera must have been stolen. And I’ll be paying for another kid’s library book on the 19th. I looked and looked. It just wasn’t in the recipe box or the plastic sleeves in my Household Binder where […]
