Apple Pie Breakfast Parfait

When I was growing up, in our house breakfast typically consisted of pancakes, waffles or toast served with a protein and some eggs.  My parents would wake up fairly early just to ensure that we were well fed before jetting off to school for the day.  Times have changed and I’d like to say...

Raspberry Chocolate Pie

Just a couple weeks out from Thanksgiving and I’ve got raspberries with chocolate on my mind.  Instead of turkey and dressing, rolls, endless amounts of appetizers and sides, it’s about what to serve for dessert.  I mean, isn’t dessert the most important thing at holidays?  Typically people tend to lean towards pecan pies, apple...

Blue Cheese Dressing

  It’s 8:45 pm and I’ve got my legs stretched out in the recliner while the sweetest little bundle of joy is swinging right beside me.  It’s been 4 days since we welcomed him into our lives.  I should have a post coming your way this next week with pictures and a birth story. ...

Roasted Grapes and Goat Cheese Bites

Do you ever look at an ingredient or product and think I can substitute it with something else?  I do it all the time and these Roasted Grapes and Goat Cheese Bites were no different.  We are a green grape family and so I insisted on roasting green grapes instead of red.  It’s what...
