    on Apr 19, 2011
    So, yeah, you probably don't see the words "healthy" and "bacon" on the same page very often.  But the fact is, most people really like bacon, so who am I to say that in order to eat healthily you can never have bacon again?!!  The goo...
  • Easy, Elegant Chicken Marsala
    on Apr 8, 2011
    I posted this picture on my Facebook page the other day, and even though the picture itself is terrible (I took it because my husband/photographer was busy), the food looked good enough to get a recipe request.  Pictured with the balsa...

    on Dec 17, 2010
    From what I've observed, it appears to me that a lot of people, maybe even most people, buy pie crust in a box or preformed in an aluminum foil pie plate, but for the life of me I've never been able to figure out why.  I grew up eating my Grandm...
  • For Flavorful Veg, Roast, Don't Boil!
    on Dec 6, 2010
    We all know that veggies are good for us, but many people don't like the taste of veggies...or at least they don't think they do.  I believe that the reason so many people dislike veggies is because so often veggies are prepared by boiling. ...
  • Please, Make Your Own...Cake and Frosting
    on Dec 4, 2010
    The other day, my husband brought home a piece of cake from a local chain grocery store's bakery.  Most people probably think the same thing I did:  Since the cake was made in a local bakery, it's probably a lot like a cake made from scratc...
