Recipe Swap: Tomato Sauce

When I was given this recipe for the Recipe Swap I was really excited. I’ve always wanted to make my own tomato sauce but hesitated a bit due to the amount of tomatoes I’d need. I ended up getting this recipe the day that two of my co-workers who grow […]

Pork Tenderloin with Cherry Salsa

When this recipe from Lindsey at Our Share of the Harvest popped up in my reader, I knew I needed to make it right away. I love cherries and I’m always looking for new pork recipes. It was a perfect combination. I made some adjustments to this recipe, not grilling […]

Peach Sorbet

Did you know August is National Peach Month? I couldn’t help picking up a basket of peaches at the Farmer’s Market over the weekend. They smelled delicious! So be warned, there will be quite a few peach recipes posted this month. 🙂 I had a plan for two of the […]

Cherry Sorbet

I love cherries but hate how expensive they are. For such a small fruit that requires a decent amount of work, they’re pretty darn expensive! I went a bit overboard on buying them when they were on sale at the grocery store. I had planned out a dinner and dessert […]

Fresh Orange Muffins

Last week I had a recipe that called for one orange. Of course when I went to the grocery store they were out of individual oranges and only had bags of them. I ended up not making the recipe and forgetting to add it to the following week. The bag […]

Secret Recipe Club: Croquembouche

Last month was my first time participating in the Secret Recipe Club. I had a great time going through the recipes on the blog I was assigned to choose one so I knew I definitely wanted to participate again. This month, I the blog I was assigned is Eggs, Cream […]

Corn and Black Bean Burgers

In my attempts to make healthier foods, I came across this recipe in Cooking Light. I had a pretty good feeling that Tom wouldn’t like it at all, but while he’s still agreeing to try different foods without question, I figured I’d make it. I thought the garlic and cayenne […]

Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Confession: I’ve never made a cake from scratch before. Growing up, cake came from a box except for the special occasion cheesecake. I have no idea why I’ve waited so long to make a cake from scratch. Not only is today Mother’s Day but its also Tom’s birthday. His favorite […]

Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus

Even though I knew that Tom and C won’t eat asparagus and I wasn’t sure if my cousin or her boyfriend would either, I really wanted to make this appetizer. I haven’t had prosciutto in forever! Almost every time I visit my aunt at her beach house in Delaware, she’ll […]

Sugared Asparagus

A couple of months ago I had a very vivid dream that I had just finished decorating my formal dining room in my house. This was pretty strange because I don’t have a formal dining room, let alone a house, the color scheme is not something I’d typically like, and […]
