Ruben Casserole

About a year ago, I saw a demonstration at a “cooking school” for a Ruben casserole.  I decided to make it for my family the next week and used the recipe I received at the event.   It was rather dry and not very tasty.  I ended up throwing most of it out. Although it took […]

My Best Meatball Sandwich

My husband used to joke that I was a great cook as long as I did not try to used a recipe. Unfortunately, he was right to some extent. I have made a few errors reading a recipe and do much better cooking (not baking or candy making) when I do not use a recipe […]

Quick and Easy Cherry Turnovers

In honor of National Cherry Pie Day, I decided to share one of my favorite quick and easy desserts, cherry turnovers. (A turnover is a folded pie, isn’t it?…Okay, I am stretching the occasion to fit what I have already made). What makes them super easy is that I use frozen puff pastry dough and […]

Cream Horns

Surprisingly simple to make and sinfully delicious, cream horns are a very special treat. One of the reasons cream horns are such as special treat to me is that they remind me of my father. He had such a “sweet tooth.” He would bring home a half a dozen cream horns from a bakery or […]

Dairy-Free Potato Soup

I thought I would share one of my new favorite soups–a potato soup. Granted cream of potato soup and loaded potato soups have always been some of my favorite soups, but this soup is different. This potato soup is not a cream of potato soup and it does not use any dairy substitutes. It does […]
