Recently, one of favorite savory-ish uses of berries is on flatbread […]

My mom used to make a lot of pickles. When I was young, most of them were made in crocks and canned. As she and I grew older, she added some pickles that did not require the work of making pickles in crocks. My favorite of these pickles was her freezer pickles. They were one […]

Mom’s Pepsi Cola Cake

There is quite a bit of irony that nearly every year of my early life I asked for a Coca-Cola Cake for my birthday. First, it is a chocolate cake and I am not the biggest fan of chocolate. Second, I really preferred Sprite or other non-cola drinks when I was young. Last, my mom’s […]

A Simple Taco Salad a.k.a Taco Haystack

It stikes me as rather odd that a simple taco salad now holds many memories and takes me back to practically another lifetime. I have no concept of how many taco salads I have consumed in my lifetime, but I do know that there were many. Almost all of them were ordered in restaurants and […]

Linguine Salad with a Red Wine Vinaigrette

My sister found a package of Rossi’s Black Olive Linguine on sale and brought it from Ohio to us knowing how much my daughter loves olives. It took me months awhile to figure out what to make with it. You see, I don’t like black olives.  However, I have loved Rossi’s Pasta since the first […]

Peanut Butter Toast

My dad loved peanut butter almost as much as he loved candy. He would only eat creamy Jif peanut butter and he ate a lot of it. In fact, he consumed so much that I was in college before I realized that the oil could separate from the peanut butter and that eventually it could […]

Sweet Onion Burger

My husband has liked those frozen onion hamburger patties since his dad cooked them once when we were visiting a few years ago. He likes them so much that he has been known to buy and cook them when we have had direct-from-the-farmer, grass-fed beef in the freezer. I am more of a fan of […]
