Easter is quickly approaching and brunch is on the brain. I wanted to add a little something different to my Bloody Mary and I don’t mean the bacon… I started to experiment and I really like this version… Continue reading
Who doesn’t love brunch, and not just for the Mimosas and a yummy Bloody Mary! When I had a Brunch recently I wanted to serve the shrimp a little different than the usual cocktail; a way that would still impress, could be made in advance, be without much effort and still taste delicious. I remembered a shrimp dish I made a long time ago using rosemary stalks as the skewers. My garden still has lots of rosemary. I also had just made a big batch of roasted red peppers… Presto, the dish came together!!! Don’t you love when that happens? Continue reading
Happy Easter and good morning!!! This morning I’m up early to make baked eggs… I call them Maria’s Eggs, because the first time I ever had baked eggs was at my brother and sister-in-law’s house.

And with the addition of vanilla they became our favorite weekend pancakes. Sometimes we add chocolate chips; sometimes it’s sliced bananas, strawberries or blueberries. They’re as easy to make as they are to eat! Enjoy! Continue reading
I love that spring is here and the snow has quickly melted!! But my refrigerator still has remnants of cold day ingredients along with all my spring ideas. So today I brought them together for a bit of fresh and a touch of comfort.
I am lucky to have the ‘Love of My Life’ come home almost every day for lunch, so we can share my creations together. Today we started our lunch with a hearty yet healthy salad. Meatless but full of flavor!
