Pie Crust Recipe By Susan: #Recipe

Many years ago, I was told that the test of a good cook was their ability to make a good pie crust. It had to be flaky, tender and complement the filling inside. To say I was intimidated was an understatement. The key was cold lard, cold water and cold hands. My first attempt was anything but...

Make-Ahead Fruit Crisp: #Recipe

I have more peaches than I can use, so a great option is to assemble my make-ahead fruit crisp. It’s super easy to put together and makes for a ready to bake dessert at a moment’s notice. The great part about this recipe is you can use it for just about any kind of...

Wine Glasses – How to Choose: #Wine

Aug 11, 2016

How to choose wine glasses depends a lot on personal needs and preferences. Even though a wide selection of shapes suits the particular merits of many varietals, the average wine drinker isn’t interested in or prepared to stock up on countless forms of stemware. At a bare minimum invest in glasses appropriate for red...

Peach Preserves: #Recipe

Peaches are in season, inexpensive and easily available at the local farmers market. I bought a bunch to make Peach Preserves and Make-Ahead Peach Crisp. There is nothing quite like homemade peach preserves anytime of the year, but especially in the fall and winter. So, you may be wondering what is the difference between jams...

No-Bake Chocolate Oat Cookies: #Recipe

Whenever I make, see or hear about these No-Bake Chocolate Oat Cookies it brings me back to my first year as a teacher. I had been assigned to a three-room schoolhouse, one of the last in the region. There were 60+ students, three teachers, two school cooks, and a custodian. The cooks were old fashioned...

English Muffin Toasting Bread: #Recipe

I have always enjoyed English Muffins. When I visited my brother in the UK many years ago, I was introduced to English Muffin Toasting Bread. It’s been awhile since my first encounter. I decided it was high time I made my own. I often create my recipes, but when it comes to bread, I...

Radio Boca Tempranillo: #Wine

I recently found myself in Cost Plus/World Market in search of interesting wines for a blog post.  I had the good fortune of running into my wine buyer friend at the store.  She introduced me to a few inexpensive wines that I might want to try, one being the Radio Boca Tempranillo. I opened the bottle that...

Coconut Macaroons: #Recipe

Perfecting these Coconut Macaroons was quite a journey. It took countless bags of coconut and egg whites, as well as the many other ingredients. Sometimes the seemingly simplest of recipes turn out to be anything but. I can say this happened to be one of them. After a week’s worth of experiments, I finally...

Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur: #Liqueur

I know this will come as no surprise, but I love chocolate. So I thought it would be fun to showcase one my very favorite liqueurs, Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur. Godiva is well known for its chocolates and it is a favorite in our home. Master Cho...

Chocolate Dipped Spoons: #Recipe

Not terribly long ago I commented on a picture of some chocolate dipped spoons and noted how easy they were to make. Their reply was enthusiastic, asking if I would create a recipe and write about it. How could I not make them after that? These are the easiest things to make.  Seriously, I mean it....
