Pasta Carbonara

I love Pasta Carbonara. To be honest, I pretty much like anything made with pasta. So I decided to recreate this lovely restaurant dish at home. After losing my Women’s Day magazine recipe somewhere in the pile on my counter I looked online for another option. When I stumbled up this recipe from The Pioneer […] Read more…

Mini Cherry Pie

Since my husband and I were married he has been begging me to make cherry pie. It’s not that I have anything against it, but I much prefer to eat raw cherries and they’re so expensive where I live that I only buy a small quantity once a year. About a week ago I saw some […] Read more…

Tuesday’s Tasty Treat – Raspberry Lime Ice Cream Soda

Where I live it’s in the 70s right now, which isn’t common for April in my neck of the woods–but I’m certainly not complaining! In my opinion, the nice weather is just another reason to eat ice cream :) A few weeks ago, I ended up with a 2 liter of lemon-lime soda in my fridge […] Read more…

Will’s Blueberry Muffins

Last week William wanted to make blueberry muffins and I just happened to have some blueberries in the freezer. We found a recipe and I asked him if we should add something different to the muffins. He asked for applesauce, so we substituted it for half of the oil. We also used raw (turbinado) sugar […] Read more…
