Pesto Breakfast Pizza


Last night was the first time since sometime in March that we were all home before 8 pm. It was so nice to have all four of us sitting down around the table to eat together. We know it isn’t going to happen again for a few weeks but it was so nice to be…

Cheesy Eggs with Smoked Sausage


We have a busy weekend coming up. Last night was dress and wig check at my daughter’s Irish dance school for all the students going to Oireachtas (regional competition) in Chicago. We had to leave for dance earlier than normal. She is easily able to put her wig on now in the car but it…

Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole


We were working with one car this past week. In a larger city it wouldn’t be so bad. Buses, taxis, even friends would be able to help us. But after our car was towed Monday night were still waiting for them to fix/replace the fuel pump on Friday. Really, it takes this long? But, in…

Ham & Cheese Frittata


Some days you just need to get dinner on the table quickly. Breakfast for dinner is an easy way to have dinner on the table in about 30 minutes. The kids love eggs and I love how easy this is to make. I have been doing a bit of research into specific types of dishes…

Smoked Sausage Hash with Fried Eggs


I am still cleaning out my pantry and freezer with a “No Buy January.” Except for some fresh produce and dairy I am hoping to have both my freezer and pantry empty by the end of January.  My refrigerator is pretty sparse right now and I am working on weeding out all the condiment and…

One last To-Go dinner before vacation!  I am ready to burst with excitement.  We are heading to Walt Disney World.  I am a master planner so I have breakfasts and dinners booked for our stay.  Half are our old favorites such as Biergarten, Crystal Palace and Cape May Cafe’ and the rest are new to…

Chicken Fried Rice


This is my new wok that I got for Christmas.  I LOVE IT!  Yes, I am shouting.  I also have a large skillet by the same company.  I love that I can take it from stove top to oven.  It has a ceramic base that is easy to keep clean and the food doesn’t stick….

Broccoli and Ham Brunch Casserole


As we begin the New Year it seems that everyone is making resolutions.   Mine is to get more fruits and vegetables into my children.  We do really good at dinner time.  We usually have at least one or two vegetable sides plus a spinach salad with all kinds of vegetables.  It is breakfast and dinner…

Chocolate “Bakery” Like Cake?


I LOVE to cook.  I like mixing things together and making them taste amazing.  Trying different combinations until it is just what I know my family will like.  I don’t bake often.  It is not something I enjoy.  You have to be so exact in your measurements and there is not quite so much room…

Bobotie


The first time I had bobotie was at a Food & Wine Festival in Epcot, Walt Disney World.  We thought it was great but had never heard of it before.  At that time trying to find a recipe for a dish from South Africa, before Google, was pretty near impossible.  No one knew what I…
