Yes, it sounds like a sneeze. Some people have no clue what it is, some have no idea how to pronounce it, and I, for one, can't imagine a gyro without it. I couldn't find the "perfect" recipe - with enough cucumber-y, garlicky, acidic creaminess I had

Thursday was my husband's birthday. In the last couple of years, I have baked him absolutely nothing. And I LOVE to bake - I even bake when somebody at work has a birthday. You know why? Because that's what I've gotten from him on
my birthday. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. So on sheer…
Black Magic Cake
Chocolate Ganache spread in the middle.
Remaining Chocolate Ganache whipped for spreading on outside.

Thanks to Celeste, on Allrecipes.com for this awesome, super cool twist on cupcakes. They are OMG good and SO pretty. My 3-year old was pretty impressed, too. White boxed cake mix, food coloring, and homemade frosting. AND, thanks to my mom's old cake decorating tips and…

It's Saturday, it's freezing here in the Midwest, and it's my "cheat" day - what better way to start the day than with Pumpkin Pancakes? I blame my cravings for these on the pumpkin waffles that my work cafeteria makes only a couple times a year during the holidays. …

. . . is to bake a batch of cinnamon rolls a la "Clone of a Cinnabon." Our neighbor saved our bacon a couple of weeks ago and brought over snowblower gas when I thought (*ahem* because my husband assured me) our snowblower had gas and was ready to go. And he also brought…

I'm tired of thinking that someday, someday my husband will come through and lovingly create a masterful dessert for my birthday. You know, like I do for his. So this year, I decided to take charge of the situation and do something about it.
I have been working on my…
Mmmm....the benefit of being in the kitchen with no witnesses - you get to lick the spreader before
How DARE the cottage cheese swipe chocolate off my cheesecake?

Pierogies. Polish Sausage. Sauerkraut. I love each of these individually, but let me tell you, together, they made me very, very happy.
I've never had a "true" pierogie but like the frozen ones I've tried from the store. Mashed potatoes and cheese in a big, fat…
