Simple Tapioca Pudding Tartelettes

Until recently my experience with tapioca pudding had been pretty limited. Lately though, I’ve been using tapioca and experimenting with different ways to serve it. One of the great things about tapioca is that it’s the perfect blank canvas for any number of toppings. I think it would make an amazing trifle, and parfaits would […]

Lemon Blueberry Bread

My first dilemma with this recipe was what to call it. Is it bread, a loaf or cake. I quickly dismissed loaf because it doesn’t really sound all that appetizing to me! I’m calling it bread because it’s a loaf shape (yup, still don’t like the word loaf!). This is pretty similar to a muffin […]

Oven Baked French Toast for Dinner

Thank you I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! for sponsoring this post. Visit for more information about Breakfast After Dark. I was so excited to get to use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! to create a Breakfast After Dark recipe. Breakfast After Dark sounds all mysterious and romantic, but I’m just embracing the […]

Leftover Quiche

I originally planned this post to come right after Easter to give you some ideas on what to do with your leftover ham. Candice took these amazing photos, and somehow it just all got away from me! Check out Candice’s Blog, where she posted a tutorial on how to get last week’s tomato soup image. […]

Blueberry Buckle

Ah … the red gingham cookbook. I’m sure almost every home cook has at least one copy of the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book; I actually have three on my book shelf. I got my first version from my mom when I moved into my first apartment. I also have a children’s version, but […]

FFwD: Gorgonzola Apple Quiche

I feel like this week’s recipe might almost be healthy. It does have some cream, but I mostly filled the pie shells with apples, onions and cheese! The first time I had a quiche with apples was over Christmas at my sister-in-law’s house. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole thing. If I hadn’t tried […]

Summer Luncheon 2011

‘Tis the season for a fun festive luncheon. I love having ladies over for lunch, and a friend’s birthday seemed like the perfect occasion. Since it’s Summer in Texas, we needed something light and fresh. I made the Strawberry Tomato Mozzarella salad that Christina made a few weeks. It really was delicious and very quick […]

A Healthier Poppyseed Muffin

The kids asked for muffins on Saturday morning. And since we are almost completely out of sugar I went looking for a recipe without any!  We have had a sugar-free house in the past, but the last time I did that it seemed like my sweet tooth grew even larger – so I’m on the […]

Overnight Orange French Toast

Suddenly it’s very quiet at my house. My dad is gone after a month of helping, and today Christina and her three kids left yesterday. Now it’s just me, Doug,  my kids, and thankfully my little sister is still here helping out. I don’t know if I’m ready to takeover the household cold turkey just […]

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes from the Four Seasons Hotel

A few months ago, my friend Andrea sent me this recipe, and I’ve been holding onto it especially for this week. Tomorrow is mardi gras, or Fat Tuesday, or, as we called it back in Nova Scotia, Shrove Tuesday.  When we were growing up, my mom would make pancakes for supper on this particular Tuesday, […]
