Place Holiday Books Under the Christmas Tree

Waiting to open the gifts that are sitting under the tree all holiday season can be an almost impossible task for wee ones…it’s just too much temptation in addition to leaving the hanging ornaments alone!

Funny Face Pizzas & Pineapple Upside Down Cake

She makes extra topping and I just think that is brilliant. It also tastes better when it sits, so it is a great “make ahead” dessert […]

Mouthwatering Superbowl Must-Haves!

As a batch of chicken wing sauce simmers away on my stove, let me tell you a story… Meet one of the loves of my life…oh how I long for those wings and that pizza! But we have a long-distance relationship because they are in NY and I am not. Sure, it just looks like pizza and chicken wings, so […]

Chocolate-Cherry Cake

    This is a family recipe that my grandmother used to make for the birthdays in the family. It was shared with me a while ago and I dusted it off and made it for a recent birthday in our house. Scrumptious! Delicious! You have to make it… It’s beautiful in its “birthday suit” (look at those cherries and […]
