If you follow Linda and I, you’re starting to get to know us by now. I think you know I’m a huge fan of using the herbs in my garden. I have wanted to post pictures of my beautiful gardens, but to be honest, the rain has been overwhelming this summer and our weeds are a constant battle. The plants are beautiful, but so are the weeds. Lol! Linda visited last week and I gave her a tour of the gardens, so perhaps she will comment on all the beautiful plants growing. Since I love a good cucumber salad, today I used herbs and onions that I picked in the rain. Continue reading
Cold soups are definitely a summertime thing. As a cucumber lover, I started making this soup many years ago. It’s a great soup when you have the girls over poolside, or on the deck. Today I had this awesome soup while sitting outside on our back porch with the love of my life. It’s a cloudy day but still beautiful. The view from our home is priceless!!! Continue reading
Au poivre is a French term that simply means with Pepper. Traditionally filet mignon is used and the meat is smothered in cracked black pepper prior to cooking. Tonight I used Pork filet instead.

It’s Sunday morning…it’s still cold outside. This calls for warm syrupy pancakes for breakfast! Years ago my mom’s friend Fay gave her a recipe for homemade pancakes. Although they tasted really good for some reason they always came out flat. With some changes to the original recipe I was able to add fluffiness to the pancakes. 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
Hello All! Welcome to our adventure. My sister Heidi & I are serious foodies!! We have spent decades between us not only enjoying fabulous fare in restaurants but creating and tweaking recipes to share our fabulous fare at home with all our loved ones.
I am Linda, the older sister…as youngsters, Heidi & I shared a room. We were up all night chit-chatting and plotting and planning! We decided to start a blog because even though we now live in separate states, we love to share our daily menus and recipes with each other. Our families enjoy our meals so much they’ve all said we should have our own restaurant, but alas, we’re too far apart, so by blogging we can share our love of food with you! Please enjoy this journey with us!
