Spinach artichoke dip spaghetti

The first thing that comes to mind with spaghetti is comfort food.  I like to a pull a freshly baked garlic herbed cheese bread out of the oven and then pour myself a tall glass of my favorite cabernet.  It’s like I can already taste it all as I write this.  I love to...

may behind the scenes

Can you believe that school is out and summer is OFFICIALLY here.  In fact I put on my swimsuit yesterday so I can paddle my way through my daughters 1 foot kiddie pool.  They’ve come a long way with the regular plastic kiddie pools. Before we splished-splashed in the pool I was finally able...

stuffed red potatoes with cheese and bacon

The first weekend with absolutely nothing planned is down for the books.  Lately it has been go-go-go and this past weekend nada, zilch and I loved every minute of it.  I made some cupcakes for a bridal shower but other than that I really didn’t even step into the kitchen to a cook a...

Baked Pita Chicken

Berry ice cream bars

Summertime is approaching at a fast pace and I’ve got cool quick treats on my mind.  Who am I kidding…. sweets are my middle name.  I could go for a warm homemade gooey chocolate chip cookie or a big bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with hot fudge, caramel and don’t forget the sprinkles....
