cooked taters

I’m not a big fan of traditional potato salad. You know what I’m talking about – the egg-y, mustard-y, mayonaisse-y kind. Not that I don’t like eggs, mustard or mayonaisse – just not on my taters! For years, I’ve tried different variations of potato salad and never found one I liked so I made up […]

meat loaf

Because… It’s Sunday and we just got back from vacation. Because… We indulged way too much on vacation. Because… I’m glad to be home.

It’s vacation eve. Tomorrow we leave for the Laurel Highlands in Pennsylvania…a week filled with golfing, hiking and kayaking… and friends… and good food… (that’s another blog post!)   Before I go…I leave you with this.

bacon on top

Hello Summer! What took you so long? I hope all of you are outside grilling or cooking in the kitchen for a barbeque! This weekend I made my favorite baked beans recipe for a neighborhood weenie roast. Or well, I thought it was my favorite recipe until I ran across a baked bean recipe from […]

brussel sprouts

I have a new pan! Okay, okay – I can already hear you… You call that a new pan? I have my grandmother’s pan…and my great, great grandmother’s pan…. Well so did I and I never appreciated it before. In fact, about three moves ago – I tossed it out. Yes, I was the fool. […]

I had a smoothie for breakfast and a salad for lunch. Why not? And I do have my new panini machine…why not? Ingredients: Crispy bacon, […]

Jar of Jam

Everywhere I turned these days, I see strawberries! My favorite market had flats full of juicy, sweet, red berries just begging to come home with me. Sure I could have made a shortcake recipe or pie recipe for you but let’s do something that will last through the year.   With Mother’s Day this weekend […]

It’s a wrap

It’s Friday night and tonight, I really want wings. Why is it that I love all the things that are not good for me? On Friday nights, you don’t care what’s good for you… This time though, I came up with a healthy alternative to my wing craving… I took some thin boneless chicken breasts… […]

Crab

Because: I’m overdosed on the holiday… it took well over four days to prepare for… my refrigerator is full of eggs and ham… and mustard…and horseradish… and something pickled… my sisters and I each made a casserole involving cheese…(that would be three cheesy casseroles)   Because: I stood on the scale this morning… I’m tired…even […]

My Mom followed the Slovak tradition of having an Easter table full of wonderful dishes like ham, kielbasa (both fresh and smoked), hard boiled eggs, fresh horseradish (which my Dad made), Easter Cheese or Hrudka – made from eggs and milk (recipe below) and Paska, […]
