Tofu and Onions in Caramel Sauce

Share

Yesterday I made 60 cupcakes. The triplets turn 8 tomorrow and I had to bring cupcakes into school for the class celebrations. I made cupcakes in ice cream cones, frosted them and put M&Ms on top at the boys’ request. The kids inhaled them!

Since yesterday was Friday and […]

Nonna's Lemon Ricotta Biscuits

I thought these muffins were pretty good – I definitely like other muffins better, but my boys really liked them, so I’m posting them so I have the recipe on hand.    Despite the fact that these look like muffins, they have a consistency that’s more like biscuits.  They’re quite dense and they reminded me of […]

I’m always looking for new things to serve the boys for breakfast and I came across this recipe on the Internet.    If there’s one thing in our house that gets a unanimous thumbs up, it’s breakfast pancakes.    I usually make these pancakes for breakfast, but this morning I had some extra time before heading to […]
