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, […]

Kamado Joe Salmon

The Kamado Joe gave this salmon the perfect touch of smoke. It’s actually amazing the flavor that hard wood charcoal imparts on everything it cooks. It’s a delicate smoky background that doesn’t overwhelm the foods we’re cooking.

Since we go through all of the effort to heat up […]

Sour Cherry & Brie Sandwich

Sour Cherry & Brie On Oat Nut 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 […]

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 […]

This is my very first zucchini bread!!!

Seriously, This Is My Very First Zucchini Bread!

This was a quick bread first for me. And, that’s something I don’t get to say every day. It sure won’t be the last. This was quick, easy, and delicious. The taste? Sweet cinnamon cake meets baked cake doughnut. We […]
