I think I will look back over 2021 and see what my top posts have been too.  Thank you for the inspiration, Joan.  It is interesting and fun to look back over th...
It has been another challenging year, but it is time to celebrate the coming of the new year.  I thought I would share our favorite holiday recipe with you.  This one has a fun story.  I was reading a Bon Appetite in 2009 and I came across this recipe, Scalloped Potatoes and Fennel.  If you know ...
Microwave Peanut Brittle!I have been creating lots of fun stuff this Christmas; peanut brittle, cookies, haystacks, pralines and homemade marshmallows dipped in chocolate.  It is tough to deliver all of these treats across the country to all of my friends and family so I thought I would share my ...
