My eldest son just got married! We are very excited and happy for him and his new bride!! We hope and pray for them – that they have many blessed years together…in celebration of their happy union I’m sharing the classic Italian Wedding Soup…
My hubby said this is his new favorite and I have to agree. He wants me to make it again tonight! The flavors of the creamy pasta with the freshness of the wilted arugula are a perfect compliment to the lightly seasoned and floured shrimp. Tip this baby off with a little crunchy garlic and POW!

Happy Valentine’s Day! For this romantic day I’m sharing a delicious Blueberry Pancake Skillet…chock full of healthy blueberries and perfect for a shared Valentine’s Day breakfast…enjoy this beautiful day!
Talk about comfort food… I am in love with this soup! Hearty and light, simple and delicious! I used spinach to finish it off this time because that’s what I had, but you can use escarole for a little crunch. You can also add chicken and tomatoes if you don’t want to use ham. I seriously recommend giving this soup a try… Oh, by the way it’s always better the next day.
I love eating salads for lunch…I try to make a variety so I don’t get bored. Since roasting veggies just makes them taste so much better I added some roasted green beans and red onion wedges to today’s salad and then topped the salad with toasted pine nuts, shaved Parmesan and drizzled on a champagne vinaigrette….just lovely!
Superbowl Sunday is coming up this weekend….in anticipation of a family get-together to watch the game we made these Deviled Ham Pinwheels that my mom used to make for almost every party we had growing up! They’re still a favorite… Continue reading
When I lived in Philadelphia I would go almost every day to a corner vendor for a Philly soft pretzel for lunch. I’m sure it wasn’t the best thing to do, but it certainly fit my college budget! I sometimes get the hankering for a good homemade soft pretzel. Today I made them a little different. I added pepperoni and cheese!!! Serve with some cheese dip and a little marinara and you have pizza in a pretzel. You can also make little bite size pieces which would be great for your upcoming Super Bowl Party!! Continue reading
Flatbreads are so delicious! Here’s one that’s topped with the flavors of Tuscany…sweet ripe pears, freshly sliced Prosciutto and creamy Brie drizzled with a tangy Balsamic Glaze….baked in the oven for just a few minutes….what a wonderful quick, easy and very tasty lunch or dinner! Continue reading
Talk about good! Every year at Christmas my Hubby gets an enormous whole ‘bone-in’ ham from one of his clients. This year I decided to make a little different glaze than the standard brown sugar kind. I know lots of you probably already cook your ham with coke, but I always used ginger ale. Well, not this time… this time I used rum and coke. It was very good! Continue reading
