Little Jake’s Chocolate Chip Scones

by TT September 23rd, 2007| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes
Scones have been a favorite breakfast treat of mine for quite some time.  They are easy to make and are perfect for both a leisurely morning or a quick start to the day.  Additionally, once I have made the base for the scone, I can divide the dough, making chocolate chip scones for the kids and fruit scones for the adults.

One of the newest admirers of these scones is Little Jake, the youngest in the group.  The first time that he had one, he misunderstood the name.  Afterward, he requested a batch of chocolate chip stones.  Since then he has learned both the name

Italian Sausage Melt

by TT September 2nd, 2007| Recipes, Sandwiches
Being without children the other day, we were able to browse while grocery and baby shopping. As we walked leisurely through our favorite small and funky grocery store, we were able to find new products that we had not tried before.

When we arrived at the condiment aisle, we discovered many unique sauces and dips. One that was particularly interesting was a roasted red pepper and artichoke tapenade. Having just seen a cooking show that made muffeletta, we were inspired to create our own sandwich.

With this tapenade as a base, we began to brainstorm options for the other ingredients in
