I intended to make a bunch of this seasoning salt to give as Christmas gifts this year. Didn’t quite get around to it, but I finally had a chance to make it the other day. This salt is delicious on green vegetables and it’s also delicious on poultry. I imagine it will be wonderful on [...]
This is my favorite new holiday recipe! I think these cranberries are incredible. They’re both sweet and tart. They have a nice crunchy sugar coating and once you break through it you get surprised with a splash of very tart cranberry juice. I served them on Christmas Eve. I made them to sprinkle around my [...]
This is definitely a meal you can make on a busy weeknight. Cooking the chicken is what takes the longest, and you can get that done pretty quickly, especially if your chicken breasts are thin. I actually recommend that you buy thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts for this recipe, or if you don’t buy those, [...]
This is our drink of the summer. The boys LOVE it! It’s perfect on a hot summer afternoon. The only problem I have with it is it gives me the ice cream headache (scientifically known as sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia) almost immediately. It’s crazy. Clearly I’m drinking it too quickly.
I use bottled lemon juice when I make it. [...]
I made these muffins for breakfast recently when we had a house full of guests. They disappeared in no time. Who can turn down a fresh, warm, lemon muffin other than one of my sons? I love anything lemon, and these muffins are no exception. The original recipe calls for poppy seeds, but I knew [...]
Are you looking for something new to make for breakfast? I always am. Are you a lemon fan? If so, these waffles are for you. They’re a nice change from your standard buttermilk waffles. The lemon and the ricotta give them a delicate flavor and a nice texture. I loved them. The kids? Not so [...]
This is my new favorite way to make cauliflower. I wouldn’t say it’s a summer dish because you have to heat your oven to 500 degrees F, which can make your kitchen warm in the summer heat, but it’s a perfect fall dish when the weather gets nippy.
Don’t be fooled by the directions, you do [...]
I love orangeade. I have always liked it more than lemonade. It reminds me of a trip that our family took to Florida when I was in third grade. I’m guessing that’s the first time I ever had it.
Orangeade is simply a mixture of freshly squeezed orange juice, water, sugar and a little lemon or [...]
In January/February, I always see a box of Meyer Lemons at Costco and I feel compelled to put them in my cart. I don’t ever have a recipe in mind when I see them, but I love citrus so much, that I always find something to do with them. This time it was gelato. This [...]
I made these for a school function the other day and I thought they were fantastic. I am a big citrus fan and the orange is really wonderful in these cupcakes. The fresh vanilla beans add some nice flavor as well. Every now and then it’s nice to make something other than a chocolate or [...]
