Oh-So-Lemony Bundt Cake

I have never met a lemon I didn’t like. When I was in my early teens, I came up with my first food-related invention: lemony V8 juice. It was a pretty simple recipe: one part lemon juice to three parts V8, topped with a big sprinkling of pepper.[...] read more

Spiced Caramel Apple Pie … and a Story

Funny story. So I go out into our “orchard” the other day (Play along. Those seven trees are spectacular.) to harvest apples from our biggest tree. We planted it about twenty years ago, and it has been faithfully churning out apples ever[...] read more

Those Amazing (Salted) Irish Cream Cupcakes

I made these for the first time this year, and it made my family swoon. Really. My son asked for them again the following week. They came up in conversation later that month, and heads nodded at the memory. What more can you ask of a humble cupcake?[...] read more

On Windows and Scallops

After studying all day in his office, Dave ‘s work day isn’t over. There’s wood to haul in, and a stove to fill and keep stoked. There’s an old window leaning against the building-formerly-known-as-the-chicken-coop, waiting[...] read more

My New Favorite Sandwich: Cuban Sliders

This was this afternoon’s football fare. Yes. I know they’re ugly and messy. But they’re also delicious! I don’t want to mislead you. These were fabulous in large part to the homemade garlic-pepper-dill pickles you see below.[...] read more

Zuppa Toscana

Zuppa Toscana: Take 2

About a year and a half ago, a friend from church taught a group of us how to make a copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana. I loved Lindsey’s version and found it to be a little lighter and probably a whole lot healthier than Olive Garden’s[...] read more

Avo-Pesto Pasta in dish

Avocado Pesto … for Pasta, for Veggies, for Eating off a Giant Spoon.
