Cupcakes in a Jar

December 15, 2010

You know those yummy Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes I shared with you the other day? Well, my favorite thing to do with those cupcakes is pack them up and ship them to my family for birthdays! But how do you ship a cupcake without completely ruining it? You stuff it in a jar! I have made […]

Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes

December 13, 2010

 These little cupcakes take the flavor from Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolates and transform them into an easy, but elegant treat! You simply make your favorite chocolate cupcake (I prefer the Hershey’s recipe), cut a cone out of the middle, fill with some Nutella (YUM!) and top with a chocolate. No fancy piping tips or skills […]

Pecan Pie with Maple Whipped Cream

December 10, 2010

Along with stuffing, my other Thanksgiving Day must-have is Pecan Pie. It is hands down my favorite pie. But the problem is, I am not a pie person. I love to bake, I could bake cakes, cookies, cupcakes etc, 24/7 and be ok with it. But, pies? Not so much. Pie crust is just so finicky and a real […]

Broccoli Gratin

December 7, 2010

Every Thanksgiving, I like to try one or two new side dishes. We always have the traditional mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing and rolls, but when it comes to the vegetables, I like mix it up a bit. This year I made this wonderful broccoli gratin. I really had no doubt that this recipe would be delicious […]

Sausage and Herb Stuffing

December 6, 2010

I could eat stuffing every week and not get sick of it. Homemade, and even Stove Top, I love it all. So you can imagine it is definitely one of my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. Previously, I have always used the pre-packaged dried bread cubes when I want to make homemade stuffing. But, this year I decided to make […]

Pecan Crusted Goat Cheese Salad with Maple Vinaigrette

November 29, 2010

I will get to posting the Thanksgiving recipes soon, but first I wanted to post something a little on the lighter side. This salad has become one of my favorite salads to make this past fall. I had seen several recipes for salads topped with goat cheese rounds, but none that really included the flavors I […]

Thanksgiving 2010 Recap

November 28, 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This was my first year cooking a whole turkey, and although I have prepared turkey breasts in the past, they do not compare to roasting the entire bird! I am happy to report that the turkey was a success, as was most everything else on the menu. There […]

Scalloped Tomatoes

November 22, 2010

I realize that November is not even close to being the best season for tomatoes. But, I couldn’t possibly run my oven for 40 minutes back in August, when it was 90+ degrees out! And while you may not find the best tomatoes right now, they are baked up with so many other wonderful ingredients […]

Baked Fontina

November 17, 2010

Looking for an easy and delicious appetizer? Look no further. This is probably one of the easiest appetizers I have ever made, and one of the best tasting. You literally slice up some fontina, top it with olive oil, herbs and garlic, and throw it in the oven. When you pull it out, you have […]

Creamy Taco Mac

November 15, 2010

With the busy holiday season rapidly approaching, I am on the lookout for quick and easy weeknight meals. This Creamy Taco Mac definitely fits the bill. Ground turkey, pasta and tomatoes in a slightly spicy and creamy cheese sauce. This pasta is very similar to Hamburger Helper and is just as easy to make, but it […]
