Wrapped & Stuffed Dates

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 29th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes

They may not be pretty, but they sure are delicious!




Don't judge a book by its cover. It's true of these dates also. They look less than appealing. I completely agree and understand. BUT their flavor? It's out of this world. Take a sweet and tender date. Stuff it

Date Spread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 27th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Spreads & Sauces

A naturally sweet spread that awaits its salty partner.


I wasn't sure what to call this recipe. The final product is spreadable. It also is made with fruit. Both of these led me to wonder, Is this a jam, conserves, preserves? The answer, I believe, is none of the

Mmm. . .Queso. Need I say more?




I love queso. I love lazy Sundays. Don't they make an excellent pairing? They did for me the other weekend. With a Sunday filled with around the house items (study for wine exam, watch one of our horses race, do a little

Chorizo Sausage Gravy

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 20th, 2018| Breakfast Dishes, Recipes

Add a little spice to your breakfast!


Sausage gravy is a newer breakfast item for me. Growing up primarily in New Hampshire with parents from California and Rhode Island, sausage gravy wasn't something made at home. With so many pancake and omelet options at most restaurants, it never occurred

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 13th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

Chocolate + Peanut Butter = Classic Combination


I don't eat much candy. Being someone who doesn't eat a lot of desserts in general, candy is pretty far down on my list. Offer me a warm cookie, a slice of non-chocolate cake, or a scoop of good ice cream, and

Aunt Sue’s Pumpkin Bread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 8th, 2018| Breads, Recipes

Forget pumpkin spice; you need homemade pumpkin bread!




I know it's March, so pumpkin spice mania is practically nonexistent. However, I wrote about banana bread on Tuesday, so this recipe flashback seems timely. For many reasons. First, this is a recipe from my aunt's baking repertoire, which goes

Banana Bread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 6th, 2018| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes

One of those foods that feels like home.


I feel fortunate that when I was a child my mom made many homemade dishes, especially for our snacks and treats. Sure, there were cakes made from box mixes, but there also were made from scratch cookies, fruit crisps, and quick

Maple Oatmeal Scones

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 1st, 2018| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes

So much better than a bowl of oatmeal.




I'm not a huge fan of a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. It's ok but not something I get overly excited about. However, oatmeal cookies are something I do enjoy. The interesting thing is that my husband is the opposite. He
