I was feeling a little adventurous in the grocery store last week and on impulse bought three leeks.  I know that to many people buying leeks is not adventurous, but welcome to my world.  I love onions but I have never used leeks. The first question I received when my husband discovered them… MORE

Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits. This weekend, I was looking for the perfect blueberry muffin recipe.  On this site, I found Chef John's Blueberry Muffins, http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chef-johns-blueberry-muffins/detail.aspx.  To add a little twist and extra lemon flavor, I filled… MORE

I recently received an email from Betty Crocker that contained this recipe.  I usually have bananas on hand and I like to bake with them after they get too dark to eat.  This recipe is a little different from the normal banana bread recipe. It calls for brown butter.  I have never made brown… MORE

Yes it’s true; I can stand in the middle of my kitchen and touch the stove with my right hand and the sink, on the other side of the room, with my left hand.  I am counter space challenged.   The ability to own a dishwasher is an impossibility.   And please, don't even try to cook when someone… MORE

Last Sunday, I decided to make homemade egg noodles to go with our roasted chicken.  I have never made noodles before, so I went to the Allrecipes site and watched the video on making egg noodles with your stand mixer.  The recipe was simple, 2 1/4 cups of flour, 1 Tablespoon of salt, and 3… MORE

I enjoy grocery shopping.  Recently, I have tried to use more coupons when I shop. The Sunday paper and Ebay have become my sources for coupons.  I am by no means an extreme couponer, and I still have a hard time understanding how it is even possible to leave a grocery store with a $500.00… MORE

I love soups. There is something very comforting about a nice hot bowl of soup.  But my time is limited, since I normally arrive home from work at 6:00 PM.   A recipe that is quick and easy is usually what I prepare for dinner.  I came across this one from Carnation and it has become a… MORE

This year we had my daughter's birthday party at the local bowling alley.  I decided to make bowling pin cookies.  When I make cookies, they are normally chocolate chip or peanut butter.  I have only made rolled sugar cookies a few times.  But I found this recipe on the site and decided to… MORE

I am always searching for new recipes.  This week I wanted a moist chocolate cake.  I came across this recipe on the internet and added a few of my own ideas.  The secret to this cake is the mayonnaise.  I have read that you can substitute Miracle Whip, but I am not sure about the flavor and… MORE

Over the weekend, I attended a craft and food festival where some of the vendors were selling gourmet puppy treats.  I thought I would try my hand at recreating these at home.  My recipe is very simple.  It came with the bone shaped cookie cutter I purchased. 2 cups whole wheat flour 1 tsp… MORE

My cooking tragedies
Never make gravy in a glass baking pan on top your electric stove. Thankfully we were in the living room when it exploded. This happened during my learning to cook days.
