Sweet & Sour Meatballs

by TT October 6th, 2010| Appetizers, Recipes
For me, meatballs are an obvious choice when entertaining.  First, most people tend to enjoy meatballs (at least in my circle of family and friends).  Second, they can be prepared in advance and kept warm in a crockpot.  Third, they need no garnish or accompaniments, just a fork and a

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

While fall does mean the end of most local produce, there are some culinary highlights to this season, for me anyway.  First, fall brings winter squash, which I happen to adore.  Pumpkin, sunshine, butternut, acorn. . .the list could be quite long.  Second, the cooler temperatures practically beg for something

Whipped Cream

by TT 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,

Sweet & Savory Pizza

by TT September 13th, 2010| Main Dishes, Recipes
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

Warm, Sweet, & Nutty Goat Cheese

by TT September 8th, 2010| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
To me, this recipe is nearly perfection.  The title alone should explain that.  First, warm cheese is involved, which always is a good thing in my book.  Second, there is a combination of sweet and savory, which delights my taste buds.  Third, with the use of nuts there is crunch,

White Grape Reduction

In the past few months I have posted several recipes that I don't consider to be true recipes.  Although they require some cooking or kitchen skills, they usually contain only one or two ingredients and involve a minimal number of steps.  However, I do believe that all of them

Pecan Brittle

Although summer is nearing its end and school has begun again, the current weather is in denial of these facts.  With temperatures in the mid-90s yesterday and today and staying that way for a few more days, it feels more like the middle of July.

As a person who has seasonal

My husband and I have a variety of shared interests and hobbies, one of which is cooking.  However, on a typical day it is difficult for both of us to be able to work on a meal together.  Between work demands and parenting responsibilities, it seems that one of

Broccoli Salad

by TT August 13th, 2010| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads
In our house we always are trying new recipes.  Sometimes they fail miserably, sometimes they simply exist, and sometimes they are huge winners.  Last night I tried three new recipes, and all three were hits.  It was kind of like a hat trick for me.  Granted, two of the

Eggplant Parmesan Dip

About this time of year, many gardens are overflowing with produce.  That isn't a problem we figured we would have this year, as we planted a modest garden of some container plants and a small plot of pepper plants.  However, a couple weeks ago our one patio eggplant ivory plant

Savory Scones

I have been baking scones for over a decade.  They're an often requested breakfast dish and a favorite among family and friends.  Depending on which person you ask, the best scone filling varies: blueberry/white chocolate chip, cinnamon chip, chocolate chip.  As you can see from this list, I have stayed
