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… MORE

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. … MORE

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… MORE

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… MORE

To anybody that knows me, or is a friend on Facebook, they know I love to cook and bake.  I am infatuated with taking pictures of what I've just created and then uploading those pictures onto Facebook so that a couple hundred friends can instantly see the genius (or so I like to… MORE
