Cream Puffs: Savory or Sweet Party Food

Every time I think of a gathering where appetizers will be served, I can’t help but think of _______salad sandwiches. The ladies of my mom’s social groups served ham, cheese, and chicken salad sandwiches at almost every gathering. They were usually on regular bread (sometimes with the crust cut off) or buns. Why? I have […]

Tasty Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you wonder why I have not published more recipes for vegetable side dishes, the reason is there is really not much of a recipe usually involved. I usually fix very simply prepared steamed, roasted, and sauteed vegetables. Brussels sprouts are one of those veggies that I usually fix the same way my mom made […]

Servatii’s Christmas Yule Log

One great Christmas tradition is to have a Yule Log as a Christmas treat. I have made them in the past, but mine were just average in taste and never looked nearly as good as the ones from Servatii’s Pastry Shop and Deli in Cincinnati, Ohio. I imagine they never tasted as good either. Servatii’s […]

Yummy Honey Brown Sugar Ham

I love this honey, brown sugar coated ham. In fact, I think my daughter and I love it almost as much as Winnie the Pooh loves honey. Even my husband eats this ham,and he does not like ham! This ham is not only very yummy, it is also much cheaper to make than the spiral […]

Grace’s Old Fashioned Lemon Crackers

Christmas would just not be the same for me with out having these crackers/cookies. They have been a traditional Christmas “cookie” for generations. In fact, I know that they have been made for at least 100 years in my family. However, it is not so much the actual cracker/cookie that is so precious me as […]

Do You Have Baker’s Ammonia?

Growing up, my mom bought Baker’s Ammonia every year before her holiday baking season began from our local pharmacy. When I was an adult, that pharmacy went out of business, but we found it at other pharmacies. Heck, we even found it at a large discount retail chain pharmacy.  It did become much harder to […]
