Cranberry Orange Soda Bread

This time of the year really makes me pause. We have so many milestones during this season, good and bad, but they all make me so thankful for what we have and for what we’ve had. Honestly, right now, I can say that I’ve never been more thankful or more happy. I’m blessed with the… continue reading »

Sweet Potato Casserole

When I was newly married, my Mom would send me big envelopes filled with recipe clippings she’d find in magazines and newspapers. On them, she’d jot down notes, circling things she liked and crossing out things she didn’t. I never really appreciated those clippings as much as I do now…almost twenty-five years later!

Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup

You know that moment when you create something wonderful and you just can’t contain yourself? As soon as I tasted this soup, knowing just how much I duped those hefty grams of fat usually found in cream soups, I knew this was going to be a huge hit.

Milk Chocolate Pots de Creme

This beauty began as a milk chocolate creme brûlée, but as I can’t leave anything alone, some type of transformation was inevitable. I’ve just been trying to reduce the amount of sugar in my diet lately and the added crunchy layer of sugary goodness in creme brûlée was just another one of those sacrifices I’ve… continue reading »
