Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

Share

I have a standard salad dressing that I make all the time. I love it. My husband likes it, but I can’t say he loves it; he prefers savory salad dressings. I love this dressing and it may be my new all-time favorite. It is really easy to whip […]

When the weather starts to get chilly, I’m always on the lookout for a good, comforting soup recipe. Although I hated them as a child, I now love lentils (perhaps there’s hope for my boys?) and I’m always willing to try a highly recommended lentil soup recipe. This one was […]

Blueberry Crumb Cake

This is another result of the blueberry picking excursion with the boys a couple of days ago.  As I do with recipes that I really like, I made two of these in two days.   I love crumb cakes, and the fresh blueberries in this one are incredible.  I thought this looked and […]

Nonna's Lemon Ricotta Biscuits

Share

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’ve been curious about Meyer lemons for some time now.  I’ve found lots of recipes that use them, but I had never seen them in my supermarket until recently. I actually found a big, beautiful bag of Meyer lemons at Costco the other day so I grabbed them. I […]

I had a bag of baby carrots in the refrigerator that I wanted to use so I fished around on the internet looking for something interesting to do with them.   I remembered having a carrot dip at a friend’s house a couple of years ago, so I googled ‘carrot dip’ and came up with this.   […]
