Roasted garlic twice baked sweet potato

I was out running errands with my Mom the other afternoon when hunger struck us both so we stopped into the grocery store salad bar to try and keep things healthy. And apparently their idea of healthy is slimy cubed deli ham and white iceberg […]

Pumpkin pancakes

Pumpkin pancakes

I’ve tried all the logical solutions; showering just leaves me colder, driving around with heat blasting is only economically feasible for so many miles, and making a warm comforting breakfast only really works when you’re not trying to blog about it… 20 minutes of fussing […]

Parsley Smoothie

’m not giving up coffee, chocolate, wine, or long island iced teas no matter what studies may inevitably say about them. But I also eat sardines and take fish oil pills because I know they are healthy, insist on buying certain kinds of butter, eggs, […]

Roasted Strawberry and Rosemary Ice Cream

And now the recipe… Roasted strawberry and Rosemary Ice Cream. Call it a smoothie or a milkshake, but this comes out seriously thick using the same ice cube technique from my Minty Lime Milkshake. As in turn upside down without making a mess thick. No […]

Spicy Homemade Pickles
