Tortellini Soup

This is a light but hearty soup and quick to get on the table. It is a soup that I made frequently when Emily was little and time was on the short side. I had lost track of the recipe but recently ran across my […]

Banana Nut Bread

I’ve been going back through some of our very early posts, doing some updating and pulled this one back up. Most of us have a handful of recipes that are frequently requested and for me, this falls into that bucket. Banana Nut Bread is probably […]

Osso Buco – Braised Veal Shanks

Osso Buco – Braised Veal Shanks

If you’ve never tried Osso Buco you need to add it to the menu! Thick, succulent veal shanks are gently braised until the meat is tender and falls from the bone and the marrow is a rich, savory bite of goodness. Braising is one of […]
