by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 27th, 2010| Recipes, Simple Solutions
You know, sometimes the simplest of things is what impresses people the most.  A perfect example of that is whipped cream.  Making it requires three ingredients and one minute.  That's it.  Yet, every time I make whipped cream instead of spraying it out of a can, I receive comments,

Aunt Sue’s Pumpkin Bread

Like many others, when I cook and need inspiration I usually turn to the Internet.  While I do have a cupboard filled with cookbooks, I find it easier to do a quick search online, as that will offer me more options at a quicker speed than reviewing my cookbooks.  However,

On a gorgeous fall afternoon without any children under our care, what were my husband and I to do to occupy ourselves?  The answer was obvious: visit a local winery and enjoy a late lunch. So, after completing a few necessary errands, we enjoyed our leisurely drive to Jewell

Sweet & Savory Pizza

Originally, this pizza was going to be named Pear & Onion Pizza.  However, looking at that title made me think that people would see the title and move on to the next web site.  Although I absolutely adore this pizza, I do understand that it may seem that pears don't

NH’s Best Bread Baskets

Typically I don't eat a lot of bread.  We tend not to serve it with meals, and I usually prefer having a wrap for a sandwich.  For me, bread is something of an indulgence.  If a restaurant is serving regular dinner rolls or slices of wheat bread, even if
