Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

There is something wonderful about the foods of autumn. Flavors are rich and deep, the scent of fruits, nuts and spices subtly waft about. The tastes of the season can be found in many delicious things and apples are most certainly on that list. We […]

Pesto Sauce Times Two

Pesto Sauce Times Two

When Emily was little I decided to plant a garden. Having been raised around gardens I had some idea what I was doing. We tilled up a portion of our yard and ended up with a garden a bit larger than expected. But it was […]

Tiramisu

Tiramisu

Most people are familiar with Tiramisu as it’s frequently listed on the dessert menu of many Italian restaurants. The 90s took a toll on this luscious Italian trifle-like dessert. During that decade it was like a one-hit wonder, overplayed so often we all dreaded to […]

Pecan Crusted Baked French Toast

Pecan Crusted Baked French Toast

I have a number of wonderful breakfast casseroles and many make great use of staples I keep on hand for unexpected weekend guests. The best part, most can be pulled together the night before and popped in an oven before brunch allowing me time to […]

Roasted Acorn Squash

Roasted Acorn Squash

One of our favorite fall vegetables has to be acorn squash. These gorgeous squash are frequently used as an autumn centerpiece along with other ornamental squash. But to leave them there would be a shame! Simple to prepare, they are also a feast for your […]

Sweet and Spicy Roasted Cashews

Sweet and Spicy Roasted Cashews

We love to entertain and frequently have guests over for dinner. I don’t typically load folks up on appetizers beforehand but always like to have something to nibble on with a beverage while I get dinner on the table. My Dad loved to snack on […]

Rosé Wine Jelly

Rosé Wine Jelly

As the days shorten and the evenings cool we tend to shift to more robust red wines and many folks start consuming the last of their Rosé Wines. But rules are loosening a bit and Rosé wine with its crisp, fruity flavor is often served […]

Rosemary White Bean Soup with Roasted Chicken

Rosemary White Bean Soup with Roasted Chicken

Nothing is quite as warming to the soul as a bowl of hot soup and this one doesn’t disappoint. Growing up, it wasn’t unusual for a large pot of beans to be simmering on the stove. This soup takes me back to those roots but […]

Cinnamon Scented Waffles

Cinnamon Scented Waffles

Most mornings we’re running opposite directions and I’ll admit breakfast typically consists of coffee. But on the weekends, we try to slow things down a bit. These crisp, golden waffles with warm maple syrup, fresh berries and a dusting of powdered sugar are a perfect […]

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

My first clear understanding of Emily’s cooking abilities came when she was around 7. I was juggling work and being a single Mom. On a Friday evening I found myself on the phone handling an installation issue on a jobsite. Apparently I had been on […]

Rustic Tomato Soup

Rustic Tomato Soup

Tomato soup. Most people would admittedly think of the canned version whose image was made famous by Andy Warhol in his 1962 work of art, Campbell’s Soup Cans. I don’t think it would be a stretch to say most everyone’s Mom served it at one […]
