Impromptu. Impromptu dessert. Impromptu blog post. It was Saturday afternoon and we had plans with friends for an early dinner. I’m standing in the produce aisle with Hubby and said “Hey, let’s do dessert at our house!” He certainly didn’t argue with that and when I asked what should I make, he pointed to the […]

The term “wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language, minestra maritata (“married soup”), which is a reference to the fact that green vegetables and meat go well together. I have had the best intentions of following a recipe I found on the Food Network Magazine. Then the recipe started taking a path of […]

Woot! It’s grandson sleepover night! Time for hugs, giggles, play… and holding onto every precious moment. When I was a young mother, I was too busy to hold onto every precious moment. Looking back now, I wish I could stop time and giggle more, hug more and play more… I couldn’t, I was a single […]

I typically cook for both of our parents at least once a week – although these days, it’s been more often as they age and a simple task like cooking is impossible. It’s a perfect storm as I always have food leftover after my blog posts to share. They do have their favorites and remind […]

Today I bring you simplicity. Simplicity: the state of being simple, uncomplicated, or uncompounded Take a deep breath… and exhale. Everyone’s back to where they’re supposed to be and routine has begun once again. I’m alone in the house today….exhaling. No more Christmas cookies, no pine needles, no ornaments or ribbons. Just me and these […]

Wow! What a year! And I have you to thank! I began this blog this past February and had no idea where this journey would lead. This blog started as a means for me to capture recipes I tried and wanted to save.  I wanted a venue in which I could hand down my family’s […]

Today I offer you decadence and pure indulgence…real flavor…and a taste of things to come with Thanksgiving around the corner. You see, I’ve been on the couch with a bug for the past few days eating canned soup. Today I rose from the dead… and reached for the butter… and real cream… and maple syrup… […]

cauliflower

With the temperatures being what they are… It’s officially the end of the season…and my gig with Graf Grower’s cooking demonstrations ends Saturday. I’ll be featuring “late summer/early fall” vegetables including cauliflower. Cauliflower is so misunderstood. It’s white and boring… With a little nurturing, it can burst into a dish spectacular! I’ve roasted cauliflower… and […]

It all started with a rumor last week at the barbershop. Nick Anthe’s was closing. Hubby came home bearing the news. “You’re kidding!”, I said. “I don’t get it…where are we going to go for our celebrations?” Nick Anthe’s restaurant has been legendary in Akron’s history of restaurants and one of THE places to go […]

puttanescaTS

What started out as a sharing a recipe with you today turned into a journey…and a fun one at that! Many years ago, I frequented a local restaurant who has since then closed but my favorite meal on their menu was Pasta Puttanesca. It was rich with flavor, salty and briney. I would go there […]
