For Mom…

3 generations2

In honor of Mother’s Day I am sharing 2 recipes that remind me of my Mommy. Anytime we were having a special breakfast she would make Monkey Bread. Mom would mix it up depending on the holiday. Sometimes she would add jams, cream cheese, nuts, coconut, or chocolate. You just never knew what you would […]

Take-In Instead of Take-Out

Now, I am not going to say that I don’t love takeout but what I do not like is the price and the teensy portions. When you are feeding 2 teenagers, quantity is a must. So, through the years I have figured out ways to make great Chinese dishes at home. Honestly you can make […]

Breakfast is for Memories

Every year I am struck with being so sentimental when I see the prom and senior pictures and watching my friends who have seniors prepare for graduation. I can’t help but be overcome with memories of my own children. I think often of the things we have done together, meals we have shared and all […]

Bundle Up for Comfort Foods

Another cold front is getting ready to rock our weekend and that means comfort foods! My family likes to hunker down with Netflix and great meals. Here is a superb soup that comes together quickly and tastes just like your favorite Jewish deli stuffed cabbage rolls. So easy to make! Watch my video and get […]

Today I woke up to slippery roads and a house full of kiddos! That means they are going to want something to eat. Well, I got to thinking about what I had in the pantry and came up with both of these this morning! So simple and they taste terrific. If you have a yellow […]

This Valentine’s I am declaring it to be a holiday where I will celebrate those I appreciate and love with tokens of my affections. No, this is NOT a Fifty Shades of Grey super sexy holiday for me. It is more like a day where I can show those around me that I love them. […]
