Old World Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate & Almond Croissant

It’s what’s for breakfast!

Rich, delicious, and crazily decadent. And, even better, it’s quick and easy. This intensely chocolate rich drink should be reserved for special occasions and busy weekend days. You made it through a hard week? Treat yourself. This […]

Brie & Honey

Beautiful ingredients morph into magic when they come together.

If I were in the mood to be decadent, I might’ve buttered my toast. Maybe I will next time. That sounds like something I’d like to do when the weather cools off a bit in a few months. But, […]

Peach Blossom Memories

It’s gorgeous outside.

Lets get out there and enjoy everything nature has to offer!

And, no cocktail says sunshine in a glass quite like the Sidecar. Brunch on our sunny deck begs for this simple little beauty that blends cognac, […]

Sour Cherry & Brie Sandwich

Sour Cherry & Brie On Oat Nut Bread

Not too long ago, I thought every meal had to be perfection. I’d carefully plan every ingredient to match my bakery and farmers market purchases. I’d only make this sandwich with the perfect bakery loaf of dark whole grain bread. […]

Never Give Up!

This beautifully wild tree sure didn’t.

Fried Egg And Vegetable Biryani

My favorite lunch of the week…

One White Oak Pastures egg makes this simple dish something special. Rich, savory, spicy rice blended with plenty of vegetables, that’s a rice dish I want to eat. Emphasis on rich, this could be slimmed down a bit by substituting low fat […]

Grilled Cheese on Lemon Walnut Bread

For me and my honey, the key to a perfect grilled cheese sandwich is a scant amount of butter on the griddle. So little, in fact that the bread appears to simply be toasted on the griddle. And, we like to toast the bread to a deep golden brown. The […]

Gingerbread Granola

Who has time to mess around in the kitchen first thing in the morning? I don’t. That’s for sure. So, the best weekday breakfast is a quick and easy breakfast. This fits the bill. And, it’s so satisfying and delicious it feels like a treat. The only way to make […]

Blueberry Bread

We love blueberries.

Fresh blueberries, jam, dried, preserves, fruit leathers… You name it. If it works for fruit, blueberry whatever it might be tops our list.

Beautifully plump, we both loved the blueberries from Sprouts. They’re finding their way into everything from morning yogurt to pancakes […]

My Favorite On The Run Sandwich

With a view like this, we never wanted to leave. So, it was time for us to get creative with our nibbles. A quick and easy sandwich was our go-to snack. This one is great to throw in your bag. Forget about it for […]
