Overnight Oats with Chocolate Chips


This has got to be one of the easiest breakfasts to prepare. Layer it all in a little mason jar, screw on the lid and pop in the fridge overnight. I added chocolate chips to these little gems but you can add anything – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries; use different types of yogurts, even drizzle on some honey…whatever you want…they all end up delicious!

Egg In A Squash Hole

Egg In A Squash Hole
Our morning Thanksgiving breakfast used to consist of bagels with all the fixings. Well, we do things a little lighter these days – so I was experimenting on ways we could have a healthier breakfast with a little Fall twist; I decided to make eggs in squash holes.

Asparagus And Potato Strata

It turned out to be a slightly overcast day, but we had a lot of fun anyway.  Continue reading

Sliders Two Ways: Cheese Steak & Cuban

Cheese Steak & Cuban
Linda and I were recently at a family gathering where we had around 80 people to feed. When that happens I source some of the food to catering and then go to very simple appetizers, dips and crackers. Also, I have a perfect and easy way to make sliders. I get the Hawaiian style rolls – but in the butter roll not the sweet rolls – and make sandwiches. Always a hit and not a lot of fuss for me! Continue reading

Smoked Salmon & Roasted Cremini Mushroom Salad

Smoked Salmon & Roasted Mushroom Salad
This salad is divine! Made almost out of desperation… On Wednesdays my hubby usually has lunch with his business partner and I fully anticipated that, until I got his text while I was on the incline trainer… “Lunch with my princess today”… (the best man ever!)… I had not planned on lunch. While I jumped off the trainer and Hubby jumped on, I went to work on figuring out lunch. With what I had on hand I made this accidental amazing salad! Really delicious! Continue reading
